Tropical Storm Bonnie

Location: 24.7N 79.8W, 80 mi SSE of Miami, 75 mi E of Marathon, FL
Movement: WNW at 16 kts.
Minimum central pressure: 1008 mb
Max sustained wind: 35 kts, gusting 45 kts

Tropical Storm Bonnie is loaded with moisture and has good outflow. Computer models project the path as pretty much a straight line across the Florida Keys and to the Mississippi Delta / New Orleans.

BP is evacuating the site of the Macondo well blowout because the projected path goes right through there.
