Hurricane Hanna is gathering strength in the Atlantic and projected to make landfall on America's east coast by mid-week, with Tropical Storm Ike expected to intensify into another hurricane. A third storm recently left Africa's coast.
This third, unnamed weather pattern is also expected to develop into a tropical storm. In response, NASA has delayed the launch of a space shuttle and Florida is taking care not to extend too much aide to states coping with Hurricane Gustav.
The effects of Hanna are already being felt in the Bahamas and Haiti, which has already been devastated by Gustav. The European Union has pledged $2.9 million in aide to Gustav victims in Haiti, Cuba, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic.
