Tropical Update : Storm Barry Update

by Pankaj Joshi Indian Free Job Alert
The Rolling Stones may once have sung about being born in a hurricane, but they will not be playing in one this weekend.
The band tweeted Friday it will be postponing its concert originally set for Sunday in New Orleans.
tropical update: Storm Barry is expected to make landfall Saturday in Louisiana as a Category 1 hurricane, and the intense rain it will bring is expected to wreak havoc on the city.
Fans need not worry, though. The show will be moved just one day later, to Monday, and Sunday's tickets will be honored, the band said in a tweet.
"We're here with you -- we'll get through this together," the band tweeted.
Lead vocalist Mick Jagger gave a nod to the lyrics of their 1968 single "Jumpin' Jack Flash" on Twitter and confirmed they'll be performing Monday.
A United Nations World Meteorological Organization committee compiles a list of names, according to the National Hurricane Center.
One list is created every six years for Atlantic hurricanes. The only time that list may change is when a hurricane or storm is so deadly or costly, the future use of its name would be inappropriate for sensitivity reasons.
And no, they're never named after a particular person or in a particular alphabetic sequence. The names are selected to be familiar to the people in each impacted region, according to the World Meteorological Organization.
"Obviously, the most purpose of naming a tropical cyclone/hurricane is essentially for individuals simply to know and keep in mind the tropical cyclone/hurricane in an exceedingly region, so to facilitate tropical cyclone/hurricane disaster risk awareness, readiness, management and reduction," the organization says.
