Well, hurricane Felix has still claimed a life here in Aruba. An idiot went bodysurfing yesterday and they found his body in the sea today.


I don't think you could even blame that on Felix.

It sounds more like a Darwin Award candidate doing his thing... :shk:

This storm kind of reminds me of Andrew, it's' pretty compact for a cat 5 storm and built up so quickly.

Definitely is a Darwin award candidate. On the radio they were warning people the whole day not to go in the sea.

In an effort to keep all information about Felix in one place, I am linking to another thread about the storm, which is now closed.
www.abovetopsecret.com...

It covers material already mentioned here, but perhaps additional info is included above.
Thanks.

It looks like it will hit as a cat 5, since it's only one mph shy of that and it's got another hour and a half or so before landfall.

From what I've heard on the TV the area where the eye will actually make landfall isn't too heavily populated. It seems the most likely threat will be inland flooding and mudslides later on.

From the satellite images it looks like Felix will be moving north. I am no meteorologist, but it could start to move up. and that would'nt be good news for Yucatan. It could die down or pick up strenght, I mean, you never know with these new-type hurricanes..they are driven by global warming and they are unpredictable.

most interesting. I knew this was going to happen. you could almost say that felix is a category six. if that's at all possible, I think it should be because it went past the 150mph limit right?

Cat 5 starts at 156 mph

Anything above that is just called a Cat 5. It could have 300 mph winds, it'll still be a cat 5.
