Hurricane Wilma, 2005's record-setting storm (in many ways) is churning around the lower Gulf waters, near the Mexican Yucatan Peninsula. It is expected to head north, then hook severely to the northeast, cutting across lower and central florida.
You know the drill---we'll be on the lookout for "Hurricane Games" that may be postponed, canceled, moved up or moved back. It is heartening to know that as of right now, the category five monster is expected to lose power on its path to Florida, settling in at around a still-powerful high three or low four.
The best ways to keep updated:
Here's a story on Miami's game with Georgia Tech being postponed (to November 19, thus moving Miami's game with Wake Forest to November 12) and Central Florida's game with Hurricane terrorized Tulane moved from Saturday to Friday-Story
It also says USF officials are watching the storm but so far will go on as planned with Saturday's matchup against West Virginia.
Wilma is expected to make landfall late Saturday or early Sunday. Wilma is still very much under the control of other weather patterns, and thus its projected path may change quite dramatically over the coming days and hours, so its U.S. destination (if it hits at all) is still relatively unknown.
