Bonnie to reach Deepwater Horizon site Saturday

NEW YORK (BestGrowthStock) – Tropical Storm Bonnie could reach the site of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill as early as Saturday before slamming into the Louisiana Coast near New Orleans on Sunday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said in a report Friday.

The NHC however continued to project Bonnie would not strengthen into a hurricane but would reach the coast as a tropical storm with winds of 39 to 73 miles per hour.

Friday morning, Bonnie neared South Florida with heavy squalls and winds of 40 mph. She was located about 80 miles south-southeast of Miami.

All of the weather models agreed with the NHC that Bonnie would swirl northwest across the eastern Gulf of Mexico over the next couple of days before hitting the Louisiana-Mississippi coasts.

Separately, the NHC said earlier Friday the low pressure system in the oil-rich Bay of Campeche in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico continued to move west over land in central Mexico and additional development was not likely.
