Myanmar worried by new storm warnings

Another storm, man, this could make it worse on top of worse. I hope it blows right past them or does not form at all.

A few interesting tid bits from the article:


Yangon residents discovered news of a second cyclone on foreign broadcasts and on the Internet as it was not broadcast by Myanmar's state-controlled media, AP reported
I didn't think I could lose any more respect for the government there, but this is very dispicable.


However, a tropical cyclone expert at City University of Hong Kong told AP that the new storm would probably not be as severe as Nargis because it was already close to land -- and cyclones need to be over sea to gain full strength.

"There will be a lot of rain but the winds will not be as strong,"


Let's hope he is correct.
