NHC Forecast Advisory
HURRICANE CENTER LOCATED NEAR 14.3N 79.5W AT 03/2100Z

ESTIMATED MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE 953 MB
MAX SUSTAINED WINDS 115 KT WITH GUSTS TO 140 KT.
64 KT....... 25NE 15SE 15SW 25NW.

So 115 kt winds with 140 kt gusts... but even cat 1 hurricane winds are extending at max 40 miles across.





Don't ask who the bell's for, dude. It's you.

A Cat 5 would basically erase New Orleans. The Katrina winds that hit NO were basically Cat 1 strength - the city got hit by the weak side of the storm.

WTH...I just happened to spot this thread...at the time it had 5 replies (and the last one was by someone called 'controlyombda' or something like that). When I opened the page it only showed two replies and when I reloaded the main page it dropped to two as well. WTH...did I take the blue pill or the red one?

Perhaps Katie Couric could rush to Belize, and speak in amazement how it looks like a 3rd
world country even before the storm hits.

Thank you for cleaning up your second (or perhaps third) post to remove political references

Just how much work is it to jump round to three different isp's for three messages ?

probably more work than it is to ban them and accounts

Please keep you political comments to the smoking section

If that high pressure system sits over the southwest United States for another two weeks, we
will be just fine. Once the cold fronts start moving down, hurricane season is over.

Felix closes in on Nicaragua, Honduras
[www.miamiherald.com]

Note to Miami Herald: It's called the "Miskito" (not "mosquito") Coast, and is named for the
Miskito Indians who live there. Very decent, very vulnerable people. I hope they have allies
to help them get out of there.

Well- I don't know what scaremongering that you are referring to but,

so far, four tropical storms and two landfalling Category 5 hurricanes. In a normal year we would expect to see five named storms (hurricanes and tropical storms combined) by this time and two hurricanes. On the average a CAT-5 hurricane happens once every four years in the ''Atlantic Basin,'' which includes the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. So far, the season is just a bit ahead of average, unless you count CAT-5 hurricanes, or live in Punta Gorda, Nicaragua or southern Jamaica or on the east coast of the Yucatan. [www.nytimes.com]

Storm season is not judged by quantity alone.

Tuesday was historic for two reasons: It was the first time on record that two Category 5 Atlantic hurricanes made landfall in the same year, with Felix coming two weeks after Hurricane Dean slammed into southern Mexico.

And Atlantic and Pacific hurricanes had never made landfall on the same date, according to records that began in 1949.
