With the new Hurricane Phillipe in the Atlantic and Hurricane Rita threatening Florida and Cuba at the moment, this is a good time to introduce a new hurricane tracking link for Google Earth and a reminder of another one.
First check out this new Hurricane tracker which not only shows the tracks of current storms for the Atlantic, but for the whole world. One of the new features is that the storm links themselves include a list of satellite photos which appear when you click on them as shown in the picture shown here. This new tracker was done by someone known as ‘glooton’ from ‘La Faute sur Mer (France)’ in the Google Earth Community and was released in this post. It is a network link, so any updates he makes should be automatic. Save it in your ‘My Places’ folder. Nice job glooten!
You should also check out this other nice resource for following Atlantic tropical storms which I wrote about earlier. You also might want to read “All Atlantic Hurricanes 1851-Present“.
