It's official. It's hurricane Katia now. It's category 1, but it is expected to reach category 3. It has 75 mph winds so far.
Cool image
here's a good pic of it, and an accompanying story.
It's about 1000 miles away from nearest land mass traveling at 18mph.


On a side note: there's a tropical storm in the gulf right now. New Orleans is expecting heavy rainfall and possible flooding.

Thats just the kind of # that manifests when you're in the 5th night in the mayan calendar.

Katai is too far North to effect North America. It will do a u turn and head into the Northeast Atlantic, unless there is some change from normal patterns. What does the Mayan calender have to do with anything?

I just went through Irene here in Eastern N.C. Many trees down and flooding. This was done with little winds around 95 mph. This coming storm they say could reach cat. 3 and 165+ mph winds in a few days. If this thing hits the USA it will be just like Katrina...Seems strange her name this time is Karia.....Maybe Karina's BIG sister....lets hope it turns out to sea and no-one uses HAARP on it or sends those Microwaves into it also.

Maybe nothing, maybe everything.

That was one of the first things I thought of when i heard about Katia.
It is really close to Katrina. Minus an r and an n is all.

Katrinas name was permanently retired due to the devistation, Katia was the replacement name. funny how these things work out.

We have a few days before what it will do.
Here is the latest on Katia.





As you can see on the projected path map below, Katia is far away from land and it is too early to determine if any land areas will be affected in the future. It may not reach the longitude of the Leeward Islands until around Labor Day. Interests in Bermuda should monitor the progress of Katia, as the hurricane may track toward the island mid-late next week.

If it's as bad as Katrina, and makes landfall, you'll need all the RN's that you can handle.

I dunno, this one seems to be struggling to get going. I doubt it will even make a Cat 2. It just can't seem to pull itself into formation.

Well, now they're calling it a Tropical Storm again.

the MSM naming as 'Katria' fear-mongering is so obvious except to the dumbed down sheeple majority

hurricanes are getting catastrophic, run for your lives, so we can save you!

The NHC just downgraded it to a tropical storm, but it's expected to strengthen again in the next 36 to 48 hours.

The names of tropical storms and hurricanes are chosen by the National Hurricane Center in six year lists. Many of the names we saw in the 2005 season, i.e. Ophelia, Nate, Lee, Maria, are being re-used this year as scheduled. Katia is the replacement for Katrina. This has nothing to do with fear mongering, and the MSM does not choose these names.

Your username serves you well sir. Katrina would have been the name for this hurricane had it not been retired. As the poster above me stated, the MSM has nothing to do with it.

Better buckle up east coast.

I have a feeling it is going to be a rough season.
