Here are some pics of what the sea did this afternoon to a beach about five miles from where I live. My dog (on the avatar) is buried a few hundred yards away from that beach...


The pics are from a good friend of mine..

Stay Safe Bandit, Ivan is scary. Isn't it extremely rare for Aruba to get a hurricane, much less at cat 4????

I can't get hold of my cousin in Trinidad and from what it looked like on satellite, Tobago got clobbered.

Grenada also got slammed pretty hard, I have heard there are already 3 deaths credited to Ivan.



I spoke this AM with friends in Trinidad, near Arima, the island got the tail end, mostly high winds and the usual damage those cause and would be expected, nothing devastating. They mentioned no deaths.

Fox is now reporting at least 20 dead in Grenada with 95% of homes destroyed.

I heard on the news hours ago that 20 were dead in Grenada as well but I can't seem to find any updated sources on the net. I didn't hear 95% of homes were destroyed. If that's true that's a serious blow to the island.

The latest path for Ivan (I also heard this hours ago) was for Ivan to cross over Cuba I believe in a similiar location that Charley did. If the forecasts are off, they are more likely to be more to the west rather than to the east in terms of projected paths for Ivan meeting up with Cuba (I heard this too). After Cuba I heard Ivan will curve northward. I also heard on my local news in South Carolina that we may get even more rain from the remains of Ivan on Tuesday or Wednesday. If I was living somewhere around the Gulf of Mexico, I would definitely pay attention to this storm.

I just saw on The Weather channel that 90% of the homes in Greanda were destroyed. lets hope this one fizzles out soon!

Well for now its worse. The 2am advisory is in and the storm is now a category 5 hurricane with winds of 160mph. Pressure is down to 925mb. That is a drop of 26mb in about 12 hours. This is going to be really bad.

Latest Hurricane Projection

Wow, maybe I should think about leaving Florida this time. The hurricane is now a Catagory 5 and its probably going to hit Florida. The city I live in got hit with the outer rain bands of hurricane Francis and half the city's power was knocked out and trees were on the ground everywhere.

Wow I just woke up to this, how scary. I thought this was interesting in the discussion section on the noaa site,

"THE UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW PATTERN IS IMPRESSIVE AND WELL-ESTABLISHED
...AND IF ANYTHING...WILL ONLY GET BETTER FOR THE NEXT 72-96 HOURS.
THEREFORE...THE FUTURE INTENSITY WILL LIKELY BE MODULATED BY INNER-
CORE CONVECTIVE CHANGES AND LAND INTERACTION SINCE TH WATER AHEAD OF
IVAN IS ONLY FORECAST TO GET WARMER...AS WARM AS 30C SOUTH OF CUBA
AND OVER THE FLORIDA STRAITS."

Half of the capital city of Oranjestad, here on Aruba is flooded. Lots of roads are closed and I saw a car in a ditch. I'm on the job now, unfortunately the building is on high ground...
My neighbourhood and city (San Nicolas) is okay though. We had some tropical storm force winds last night, but not that strong though.

But poor Jamaica has to brace herself. This is the strongest Hurricane yet this season and the strongest one to hit the Caribbean since Louis in 1995.

I don't even want to know how it is around my gf's appartment. It's close to the beach and I've heard on the radio that it's only water there. I evaquated her yesterday...

Tampa would be flooded more than anyone in this lifetime has seen -- and I've seen it under five feet of water (South Tampa/Bayshore) as a kid during Elena in 1985.

Ivan is said to be the most powerful hurricane to hit the Caribbean in a decade. 13 people have been reported killed in Grenada due to the storm. Tourists are being ordered out of the keys of Florida due to the storm they are projecting to hit sometime on Sunday.

cnn.com
Tourists and residents also were told to evacuate the Florida Keys because Ivan could hit the island chain by Sunday. It was the third evacuation ordered there in a month, following Hurricane Charley and hard on the heels of Hurricane Frances.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


Currently, Hurricane Ivan is a Cat 5 storm with max sustained winds of 160 mph. Wind gusts have been reported to be about 195 or greater.

Actually, this would be the THIRD...Charley, Frances...now Ivan.


Tampa would be flooded more than anyone in this lifetime has seen -- and I've seen it under five feet of water (South Tampa/Bayshore) as a kid during Elena in 1985.


Bayshore Blvd was under about 2 feet of water when Frances went over.... The reporter was standing on the median and was almost up to his knees...

EDIT: Local News Story....


With the Bay area still reeling from the effects of Charley and Frances in the past month, Hurricane Ivan is the latest weather threat to consume people's thoughts.

Rated a Category 5 hurricane and packing winds of 160 miles per hour, Ivan looms about 800 miles from the Bay area. It has already killed at least 16 people in Grenada, Barbados and other islands.

Projections have it reaching Florida sometime Monday. An evacuation order has already been issued for the Florida Keys.

Bay News 9 meteorologist Mike Clay cautioned people from getting too paranoid, however.

"It's too early to tell where it's going to make landfall,'' Clay said Thursday morning. "Florida is in the middle of the cone, although it could go off into the Atlantic or the Gulf of Mexico. When a hurricane gets this strong, it has a hard time maintaining its intensity. It's really bad news for Jamaica and Cuba, but it may weaken as a result of making landfall there. It's difficult to say where it's going after that, but it will stay a major hurricane.''

Clay said the 5 p.m. advisory tonight will lend a better picture concerning Ivan's path.


Next update is at 2pm...

This has to be depressing. The only bright side is that everything will be clean afterwards. Alot of government money and insurance money comes in to boost the construction business. But in the mean time it bites having no electricity. Should the power company hold off on hanging any new lines until they can see where this is going? Or do they risk having to redo all their work again next week?
