Naval District Washington (NDW), Navy Region Southeast and Commander, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic along with U.S. Fleet Forces Command are currently participating in Hurricane Exercise-Citadel Gale. As we get ready for the upcoming hurricane season, check out these FEMA tips on #financialpreparedness.

HURREX/CG Day 4: Financial preparedness is also key during emergency planning!

It can be hard to save for a rainy day, but it's harder to go through an emergency or disaster without having the necessary funds. Financial preparedness starts with assessing your current situation. Think about the financial commitments you will face after experiencing an emergency. Do all you can now to be financially prepared.

Here’s the latest on #HurricaneFlorence, #HurricaneIsaac and #HurricaneHelene.

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane Florence, located over the west-central Atlantic Ocean - www.nhc.noaa.gov/#Florence, on Hurricane Helene, located over the eastern Atlantic - www.nhc.noaa.gov/#Helene, and on Hurricane Isaac, located over the central tropical Atlantic - www.nhc.noaa.gov/#Isaac

Elsewhere on this Monday night, showers and thunderstorms over the northwestern Caribbean Sea, western Cuba, and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico are associated with a surface trough and are showing some signs of organization. This system is forecast to move slowly northwestward across the Yucatan Peninsula on Tuesday with limited development. Upper-level winds are forecast to become more conducive for development later in the week, and a tropical depression could form on Thursday or Friday while the disturbance moves across the western Gulf of Mexico. Interests across northeastern Mexico and the coast of Texas and Louisiana should monitor the progress of this system. Regardless of development, heavy rainfall and gusty winds are likely over western Cuba and the Yucatan Peninsula through Tuesday.

Also, a non-tropical area of low pressure is forecast to form in the northeastern Atlantic Ocean several hundred miles west-southwest of the Azores in a day or two. Environmental conditions are conducive for some development, and a tropical or subtropical depression could form by the end of the week while the low moves erratically over the northeastern Atlantic Ocean.

NOAA Doppler radar data indicate that the center of Hurricane Nate is making landfall at the mouth of the Mississippi River, about 100 miles (160 km) south of Biloxi, Mississippi. Nate is now moving toward the north and a little slower, near 20 mph (31 km/h). On the forecast track, the center of Nate will make a second landfall along the coast of Mississippi tonight.

A Storm Surge Warning is in effect for Grand Isle, Louisiana, to the Okaloosa / Walton County Line, Florida, including the northern and western shores of Lake Pontchartrain. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for metropolitan New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Maurepas, west of Grand Isle to Morgan City, Louisiana, and east of the Alabama / Florida border to Indian Pass. Florida. Aircraft reconnaissance data and Doppler radar velocity data indicate that maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher gusts. Strengthening now appears unlikely before Nate's center reaches the Mississippi coast during the next few hours. Rapid weakening is expected after landfall, with Nate becoming a tropical depression by Sunday night.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles (65 km) from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km) mainly to the east of the center. A sustained wind of 54 mph (87 km/h) and a gust to 58 mph (94 km/h) were recently reported by NOAA buoy 42040 to the east of the mouth of the Mississippi River.
