What can be worst than one hurricane? Answer: To be trapped between TWO hurricanes at the SAME time. And this is precisely what may happen in three days from now for Center Florida and Walt Disney World.
All this thanks to tropical storms Gustav and Hanna which will become hurricanes in the next 72 hours. I am not the one telling it, but the National Hurricane Center who know what the word "hurricane" mean. See the NHC map below for a better understanding.
However, WDW guests must not panic, as Gustav, the first hurricane is heading - unfortunately - towards New Orleans, Louisiana -, and Hanna goes toward the Bahamas Islands. So the "eye" of the hurricanes won't be over WDW, but as we know, a hurricane is extremely wide and the stormy effects can be feel hundreds miles all around the famous "eye".
In three days from now, WDW will be right in the middle and probably will feel the effects of the two hurricanes almost at the same time, and my feeling is that it is not necessarily good news...So, if you are planning to spend the week-end at the Magic KIngdom, it's probably better to don't forget your umbrella, as heavy rains should be part of the program...
