That is exactly what i'm talking about! "they" leave footprints of manipulation don't they? I'm curious to see if anyone has spotted any fake looking hot spots in front of the storms path???


Darkheart, this is the only post that I seen you make and it really didnt go into to much details, so I really dont understand why you would think that I am ignoring you. However, i have been devoting to most of my time these past 2 days to this storm so perhaps I did miss a post or two of yours.
If you made more posts directed at me, regarding weather manipulation then please point those out so I can try to read them while I have time. If you are referring to past posts made by you then yes I most likely did miss them because prior to this thread I have never seen you or any of your posts

Anyway, I am trying not to go offtopic to much in this guys thread, dont wanna get the mods looking over my shoulder

Back to the storm. Like I said before these things are how I make a living, well about 80% of it anyway, sadly enough for the people effected by them, that side of me has to want a landfall somewhere in the US.
For the past couple of days and for the next few days, I split my time between preparing to #1 leave the state #2 preparing my home in case it is my City that gets hit and #3 monitoring the status of the storm on the internet and the weather channel to try and determine what city and state that I may be possibly living at for the next few months.
If it does hit my home in Corpus then I will be cleaning up, waiting in gas lines and working at the same time.. assuming that my home doesnt get blown away lol..
The one computer model, GFDL, is still holding on to its prediction of a South Central Texas landfall, which is just about where I am..
Luck to all, I hope that I dont have to write up a total loss claim on any of my ATS colleagues

Hurricane Dean is over 200 miles away from us her at Aruba today, but there were still visible effects. The tradewinds changed direction and the sea became very rough.

Check out this video from this morning. I've heard it's going to be even rougher tomorrow, so I might check it out.

Thank you for the link to that thread. I believe there is much more than HAARP going on, but HAARP can turn atmosphere to plasma and it certainly can do a number on oceans.

Dr. Rosalie Bertell is one of the best sources on information on the subject of using Nature as weaponry.

I will be praying for you in Corpus as well as everyone on the Texas coastline. If I recall Corpus has more military assets than Houston-Galveston. I think those driving the weaponry are looking more to do economic, petrochemical harm to the USA than targeting military bases.

From what I understand of the technology, they cannot create a hurricane but the sun spot cycle and heat riding of the Sahara into the Atlantic provides plenty of storms ready to be 'dialed up' or driven. So the 1st step is a predictable natural cycle. There is a book by Dr. Rosalie Bertell on using the Planet Earth as the latest weapon of war.

Check out the models now, even the GFDL has trended south.

Looks like it is gonna skirt south of Jamaica, bad news for people there. That NW quadrant is the worst.

Wow, nice image of Dean you found Hellmutt

Yea, we have a Naval Air Station here, (Naval Aviator Training) and across the bridge we have a minesweeper base, which is due for closure pretty soon.
We also have a Valero Petrol Refinery and a Citgo Refinery as well. The there is the Port Aransas Ship Channel, which allows ships to enter the Port of Corpus Christi.
However, since 911 it seems that the city has been more worried about the Harbor Bay Bridge than anything else, its a fairly large (tall) bridge crossing Corpus Christi Bay.
No biggie though, i dont fall for all the false terror alerts and bs color coded terror levels.

Anywho, the 8 pm update on Dean shows that the pressure has dropped down to its lowest point yet, 920 mb but its wind speed is a consistent 150 mph with gusts to about 185 mph.





The computer have been updated now and they are, for me, a little bit disappointing because they all have them going into Mexico. Of course, as ive said before, it is impossible to predict these things so far in advance so I am really not all that worried.
gotta go for a while, cooking some red snapper and grouper that we caught offshore a couple of weeks ago..
peace







Here is an image of the hurricane hunter plane over Dean today

j/k of course, its just a joke so nobody start yelling at me that its fake, its photoshopped

Power 106 FM



I have been monitoring this station throughout the day (pleasant music, had to enjoy a few tropical drinks),

The broadcast now is mainly pertaining to emergency prep,, evacuation notices, shelters, and alot of information on sterilizing water, curfews, US embassy consulate closed MON & TUE etc. etc.

Thanks again for providing the link DearWife


Your welcome. Yea, I got it on too. The broadcaster mentioned at 9:00pm the prime minister is going to address the nation. Weather underground was mentioned also...so at least the station is updated on the information. Now they are talking about protection from mosquitoes.

*clears throat*
Could we please stick to updates on the hurricane in this thread?
Perhaps what can be seen in the clouds should be discussed in another thread.

Thanks, guys.
I'd hate for this thread to get derailed.

This is the 1100 PM EDT National Hurricane Center update:
Hurricane DEAN Forecast Discussion

TCDAT4
HURRICANE DEAN DISCUSSION NUMBER 24
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL042007
1100 PM EDT SAT AUG 18 2007

THE INNER CORE OF DEAN APPEARS TO BE UNDERGOING SOME CHANGES. RADAR
IMAGERY ONBOARD THE AIR FORCE RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT DEPICTS
CONCENTRIC EYEWALLS AT RADII OF ABOUT 10 AND 20 N MI...WITH THE
OUTER EYEWALL RECENTLY BECOMING A LITTLE BETTER DEFINED.
FLIGHT-LEVEL WINDS HAVE ALSO REVEALED DOUBLE MAXIMA. WIND DATA AT
FLIGHT LEVEL...FROM THE SFMR...AND FROM DROPSONDES DIRECTLY SUPPORT
AN INTENSITY OF NO MORE THAN ABOUT 115 KT. THE CENTRAL
PRESSURE...HOWEVER...HAS BEEN GRADUALLY DROPPING AND WAS MOST
RECENTLY MEASURED AT 918 MB. ASSUMING THAT THE MAXIMUM WIND HAS
NOT BEEN SAMPLED...THE ADVISORY INTENSITY IS SET TO 125 KT...BUT
THIS COULD BE A BIT ON THE HIGH SIDE. THE AIRCRAFT WILL CONTINUE
TO INVESTIGATE DEAN FOR A FEW MORE HOURS TO SEE IF THE WINDS COME
BACK UP.

As the storm approaches Jamaica, in the US Louisiana is in a state of emergency, and now President Bush has signed a declaration clearing the way for federal response should Dean hit Texas:


Bush Moves on Hurricane Dean

CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) -- President Bush, who was criticized for a slow federal response to Hurricane Katrina, has taken a pre-emptive strike against Hurricane Dean.

Bush has signed a pre-landfall disaster declaration for Texas. It allows the federal government to move in people, equipment and supplies immediately in case Hurricane Dean hits the state.

The president signed the declaration at his Crawford ranch, where he received two briefings on the hurricane.

It looks pretty certain that this will be almost exclusively a Jamaica and Mexico storm in terms of damage. I'm glad it looks like it will miss the U.S., but I feel sorry for those people. Most of them are probably far less able to deal with it.

Honestly it is way to early and the storm is way to far from the mainland US to really know for sure if we're out of danger from Dean, although you are probably right, even the models are carrying the storm way south of the border.
The computer models have changed dramatically every time they've updated over the past two days.
I really dont think they can accurately predict landfall, until after he passes the Yucatan and gets into he Gulf, if he does at all.
As of the 11 pm update, Dean has dropped 5 mph winds speed, while at the same time the pressure dropped another couple of millibars, which is usually a sign of strengthening.

Yeah I know, but it's pretty amazing how much all of the models are in agreement now.

Of course they could all be wrong.

The SHIPS model is forecasting an intensity of 163 kts which is nearly 190mph. Unfortunately GFDL is forecasting 173kts which would report as 200mph. Of course I don't buy either one of those reports. But we shall see soon enough how close they are. The storm is slowly moving over warmer waters.
