GIC has activated to Level 3 – Enhanced Monitoring for Tropical Storm Imelda At 1200 PM Central, the center of Tropical Depression Eleven was located near latitude 28.7 North, longitude 95.4 West, just off the coast of Freeport, Texas. Shortly after being named a tropical depression, the system was upgraded to Tropical Storm Imelda as sustained winds of 40 mph were measured near Freeport. The system is moving toward the north near 7 mph (11 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through early Wednesday. A north-northwestward motion is expected Wednesday night and Thursday. On the forecast track, the center of the system will move inland over the upper Texas coast later today, and move farther inland tonight and Wednesday. The system is expected to produce total rainfall accumulation of 5 to 10 inches with isolated maximum of 15 inches across the upper coastal region of Texas and into far southwest Louisiana through Thursday. The GIC Gray Sky Playbook calls for activation for imagery collection for hurricanes of Category 2 and greater or in special circumstances for Category 1. Therefore, considering both forecast track and intensity, imagery collection for this system is not anticipated. If you have questions please reach out to graysky@geointel.org. GIC post-disaster imagery is available for free to first responders and government agencies involved in response and recovery activities. GIC collects major disaster imagery areas for the use by insurance companies and shares this data with disaster response and recovery organization in order to help impacted communities recover.

GIC has activated to Level 3 – Enhanced Monitoring for Potential Tropical Cyclone Nine. At 800 AM Eastern, the center of the disturbance was estimated near latitude 25.1 North, longitude 75.3 West, or 290 miles SE of Freeport Grand Bahama Island. The system is moving toward the northwest near 6 mph (9 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue with some increase in forward speed through the weekend. On the forecast track, the system is anticipated to move across the central and northwestern Bahamas today, and along the east coast of Florida Saturday and Saturday night. Some strengthening is forecast over the next 48 hours, and the system is expected to become a tropical depression or tropical storm later today or Saturday. The forecast track maintains the eye of the storm offshore, and though the system could bring tropical-storm-force winds over portions of the Florida east coast over the weekend, widespread impacts are not anticipated. Considering both forecast track and intensity of this system, imagery collection is not anticipated. If you have questions please reach out to graysky@geointel.org.

GIC maintains Level 3 – Enhanced Monitoring for Hurricane Dorian. At 500 PM Eastern on Thursday 29-Aug-2019, the center of Hurricane Dorian was located near latitude 22.5 North, longitude 67.7 West. Dorian is moving toward the northwest near 13 mph (20 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through Friday. A west-northwestward to westward motion is forecast to begin by Friday night and continue into the weekend.  Strengthening is forecast during the next few days, and Dorian is expected to become a major hurricane on Friday, and remain an extremely dangerous hurricane through the weekend. There is an increasing likelihood of life-threatening storm surge along portions of the Florida east coast late this weekend or early next week. The risk of devastating hurricane-force winds along the Florida east coast and peninsula late this weekend and early next week also continues to increase. GIC will continue to monitor and is making plans for imagery collection in Florida. GIC will begin daily member briefings as early as Sunday depending upon conditions. GIC will deploy Richard Butgereit, Director of Catastrophe Response, to the Florida State Emergency Operation Center beginning on Saturday.
