Hurricane Rafael Tracking - Tropical Storm Rafael Tracking

Page Updated

Like the look of this image? Install Google Earth and download the Hurricane Rafael Google Earth Files, then you will be able to view it in 3D, zoom into every point on the track, and more. Google Earth is FREE, and it's on the download page.

If there is no tracking map, just a blue page with 'No Tracking Initiated', then the tropical cyclone was not tracked on this site due to the following reasons :

i) the cyclone never became a tropical storm or hurricane (we only track named storms here), or

ii) the storm was never considered to be a threat to land by the NHC, or

iii) no-one was here to do the tracking e.g. holidays, work commitments etc.
