I've been trying to find some online radio stations for Jamaica for some news on Hurricane Dean but they were only talking about ganja weed earlier...now it's just music.
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

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
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.
