Heh, I'm in south Florida right now waiting for Hurricane Frances to make it's move. Hurricanes really aren't a biggie anymore, although everyone treats it as if though it were the end of the world. Everyone here in Miami is going CRAZY, especially for gas and water and other materials needed if worst comes to worst. Also, you can't forget that force has an exponential relationship with speed.


Tell that to someone who has lost a family member to a hurricane! What an unintelligent thing to say! Your not a born Floridian are you? The other dumb thing non-born Floridians pay no attentions to is the under current in the ocean.....until they get caught in one, or someone they know drowns from it.

What an unintelligent thing to say to a born and raised Floridian. It's a known fact that most people who die in a hurricane are either crushed by their house or shocked to death by electrical wires downed in a flooded zone. I mean, 26 people? (Hurricane Charley) Compare that to all the lives lost to FLU each and every year, AIDS, and any other disease. Actually, let's compare it to another natural disaster. Earthquakes. Many more people die from earthquakes on average than hurricanes.

That's ONE Earthquake in the year of 2004. We're not talking the 1700's where over 70000 people died in a hurricane. I'm talking NOW. Now, I'm going to put up the deadliest hurricane in the 1900's.

The deadliest hurricane was in the 1928, and hit San Felipe, Puerto Rico, with a death toll of 312.

Now, I'm not justifying the fact that people dieing in a Hurricane is bad, but what I'm saying is, you don't see people going INSANE over earthquakes, unlike people do with hurricanes.

Impossible to cover-up 50,00 dead from a natural disaster. Maybe 50,000 dead domesticated pets but not people.

Sure, but it is definitely over 27 as declared.

I don't believe for a nanosecond that "50,000 were killed"... a preposterous statement. But... my wife and I were driving North from Jacksonville, Florida that day, through the rainy remnants of Tropical Storm Bonnie; Hurricane Charley had made landfall that morning to the South of us, on the West side of the peninsula as a compact Category 4 storm. We saw an endless convoy of FEMA vehicles and power company repair trucks heading South on the opposite side of the highway, obviously a major emergency was in progress. We were also scrolling through the local radio stations and heard numerous reports of "very heavy casualties" in the Port Charlotte area. Several eye witnesses reported on live radio seeing "bodies everywhere", and there were also reports of "refrigerated trucks stacked with bodies" seen in Punta Gorda neighborhoods. We arrived in our hotel later that day expecting to hear horror stories of perhaps "many hundreds killed" at least, on the news.. but nothing. The storm, although having very small windfield deepened explosively in the Gulf of Mexico and then took an unexpected turn, making landfall in an area where people were not expecting it.

I cannot say what really happened, as I wasn't there, but when multiple eyewitnesses report heavy casualties in multiple locations, on several media sources, probability law infers that an element of reality to such. Looking at the storm's wikipedia entry, the death toll remains at 16, a very small figure considering that a 145mph hurricane barreled through a well populated region. Something doesn't quite compute!
