Track Hurricane Helene and Hurricane Lane in Google Earth

Hurricane Helene and Hurricane Lane in Google EarthTwo new storms to follow. Hurricane Helene is in the mid-Atlantic well away from land. Hurricane Lane, however, is a category 3 hurricane threatening the west coast of Mexico with sustained winds of 120 mph (194 km/h).

You can use Google Earth to track all current tropical storms by using this excellent storm tracker by 'glooton' which was posted at the Google Earth Community. This uses a network link to automatically show you the most current storms world-wide by scanning weather sources on the Internet. It shows you the past track and the forecasted path, and icons indicating strength of the storm. It also shows you the web cam locations/pictures for towns near an approaching storm, wind strengths, satellite photos, and more. There is another hurricane tracker (for Atlantic storms) which shows model forecast tracks, satellite photos, and other data. This was done by Paul Seabury and posted at the GEC as well. Also, Paul's network link now includes some interface enhancements if you use GE 4. Also, check out these and other weather tools put together by Google Earth Blog.
