Will the 2004 hurricane season be busy?. Yes. Is Flordia going to get hit again? If Ivan strengthens, chances are it will. Quite the season for them. Winds are now at 105 Mph. Hurricane Ivan is moving W/NW at 22 Mph and should be near some of the Windward Islands on Tuesday.
 



www.sun-sentinel.com
Hurricane Ivan churned toward the Caribbean on Monday, packing sustained winds of 115 mph and threatening to hit Barbados and other islands, after it strengthened from tropical storm status with unusual speed.

Residents rushed to install storm shutters and schools remained closed in Barbados, where the Category 3 storm - the fourth major hurricane of the season - was expected to hit late Tuesday.

``We expect it to maintain its strength but it's a smaller storm compared to Frances, so the eye would have to pass directly over some of these islands to cause extensive damage,'' Blake said. Ivan weakened Monday, with winds slowing slightly to 115 mph from 125 mph, but it was still at Category 3 strength. Forecasters said Ivan could regain force by the time it reaches the Windward Islands.

More and more distruction for Flordia and the Carribeans. That seems to be all they get now-adays. Ivan, Frances, no matter what they are named, they just seem to be bringing more and more distruction. Hopefully this one will not be as bad.



As always, prayers are with the ones affected by the hurricane, and good luck trying to deal with it.

Hopefully, this one doesn't make it, and dies down.

I am afraid if Ivan hits Florida, it won't be the one two punch, it might be 3 strike your out. Definitely praying for Florida.

Florida's getting hit pretty hard. Haven't heard from my friend since the last one he might have lost power. Good luck to all those people who live in florida.

I'm wondering if a major hurricane could survive Cuba and the mountains of Cuba. It would have to rapidly intensify after crossing over those mountains for it to still be a major hurricane.

As far as Florida goes, I heard that 76% of all major hurricanes that hit the US strike Florida or Texas.

The current projected path would put the storm over Cuba for a very long time. There wouldn't be a great deal of strength left when it moved back over open waters.

Here in Albany we had a rush of Floridians all over the town escaping Frances and now Frances is going through here, as I sit on my living room typing this I am praying the lights will not go off, all the schools are going to be closed tomorrow and the flooding is still to come.

Every time I look at the track for IVAN, the prediction keeps moving slightly south. The danger with that would be if it went south of Cuba and entered the Gulf without weekening, the waters are especially warm and would be perfect for fueling a large hurricane.

Ive seen about 5 Models, and none of them have it going for Florida. I guess we have to wait a couple of days to truely see. The problem here is, since Charly was hyped up, and so right doing so, many people may not flee and a death toll could be larger than any other one.

To those of you who think the government is capable of steering weather phenomena with the Haarp stuff... convince em to use it now and send that back to the water...

I'm fearful that many residents of Florida are nearing a breaking point.

Keeping it over the water will just make it stronger, sending it faster toward land so it could weaken would be the best way to go about this. Although you don't want it to be too slow over land because that will cause flooding..

anyways i'm saving pictures of ivan once a day to monitor its progress. i'll make a website about it or something tomorrow maybe.

Maybe if America signed up to the environmental agreement with the rest of the 'developed' world they can avoid such storms in the future.

If America do NOT sign up it is comdemming its people of the East Coast and more to an uncertain future that can only get worse ever year.

IMO.

I got some friends in Volusia County that I havn't heard from since Saturday, the power went down as I was talking to them online.
I'm also praying for the people of Florida.

I'm one of the lucky ones... I only lost power fully for an hour...(but I managed to beat my wife in a game of Rummy, hehe..) Many I knew, even if just a block away, lost it for hours...though we had interruptions off and on all day...

One friend of the family lost it for at least a day, and she may still be out. We had her over for dinner last night while still being hit with some of the bands from Frances. She enjoyed a hot meal and the air conditioning, hehe... We grilled some steaks...


If you don't already know, I'm in St. Pete near Tampa, and the eye went right over us. Amazingly, not too much damage, mostly blown out signs, some downed trees and branches.... Not much rain either, though I hear (and saw on the news) Tampa flooded in many areas...

At least we're all stocked up for Ivan!!!


Here's a look at Ivan. The blue line is just an extension of their forecast. The yellow dot is where I am. Here we go again! Wheeeee!!!!!

Back at work today, and we just had the power flicker again...
Guess we're still dealing with some of the issues from Frances...

So I went to sleep last night after looking at the weather map, thinking Ivan is going to pass straight over poor Barbados. Woke up this morning expecting to see it over Barbados... Nope, it went south. That's not good for us here at all. When a hurricane passes close to Trinidad, it's time for concern because then it might pass close to Aruba within two days...


EDIT: Oh Crap!! We're under a hurricane watch..

Here is Frances' actual track over Florida. What was left of the center of circulation was north of the Tampa area the entire time. The drastically-weakened eye was nowhere near the 80 mile diameter from the day before. What was felt in areas like St Pete and Clearwater were squalls, not the eye. The eye had degraded to a 30 mile diameter as it crossed the state.

Frances track over Florida

Last I heard, it's the "developing" third world countries that are actually creating the most dangerous pollution. They are quickly catching up to the "western" worlds' level of industry however... they have NO real environmental regulations unlike ALL western nations. Also there are cities in the world that are far more polluted than any you'll find in the U.S.

BTW, Djarums... Who says that the government didn't actually CREATE these storms? lol Ya know... create ridiculous weather systems for a year or two and then step in to save the day... and provide a little justification for the developement and use of such technology. It's a real long-shot and I'm mostly kidding, but ya never know

True, there was no real "eye" at the time... Because of this, any "track" of it really isn't a true track. If you look at any of the radar images though, of it's progression, you'll easily see that the part of the storm that was previously the "eyewall" indeed went through the area... Then again, I've only been staring at the radar images off and on each day for the whole duration, using local viper radar images...




Are we still doubting???

Ivan stomps on Barbados.
 



www.foxnews.com
BRIDGETOWN, Barbados Hurricane Ivan (search) blew off roofs and tore down trees Tuesday in Barbados as it churned toward Tobago and Grenada, where hundreds sought shelter just days after Frances swept through the Caribbean.

Ivan raced toward the Windward Islands with sustained winds of 115 mph, making it a Category 3. Forecasters said the storm could become a Category 4 late Tuesday.

I sure hope Ivan burns out before it hits Florida.
Or Bush will be asking for more than $2B in aid.
