The link on that page to the web cam's website is wrong -- it takes you a Fodor's entry about Hong Kong.

Where is the people working round the clock to pick up all the debris left behind from Frances??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is tons of trash lying around and no bulk trash pick up going on. This is not good. Imagine the amount of possible projectiles waiting to be picked up by 140mph winds.

I have been calling the city all day and no one is responding to my concerns.

Yep, the "tone" was definite venting... At least we're flying First, so that's not so bad, hehe....


Having my uncle and cousin staying at the house while we're gone, to watch the animals, as they'll likely have to evac their place anyhow...

Worldwatcher, there are huge lines at the landfills. They're probably putting phoned in requests at the bottom of the pile...

On Thursday, tourists and mobile home residents were ordered to evacuate the Keys.

Surgical patients are being flown out/relocated from Key West hospital.

Looks like they aren't taking any chances.

I don't think you CAN take any chances in a situation like this.

I clearly remember hearing Jeb Bush saying that debris pick-up would begin immediately, that was Wednesday. But I have since to see a garbage truck

Gaz while I understand there must be long lines at the landfills, I don't understand why there isn't 24 hour garbage pickup until Ivan arrives. Tropical storm winds could pick up some of this stuff and turn it into projectiles. I just don't understand how anyone could say the state is preparing when the most obvious obstacles and hazards are on every street corner in South Florida.

I dont mean to sound strange but has anyone any idea how bad Barbados was hit. I have family out there and my parents are due to fly out there tommorrow to visit family but we have had no communication from relatives over there for 2 days now. The airline my parents are flying with still cannot give them a definite yes/no on whether their flight will be going and they are supposed to be leaving in 8 hours. Any info anyone then im listening.

Haven't heard much about Barbados, but I was able to get in contact with friends and the few relatives I have in Trinidad, but Tobago is a different story, I havent' been able to reach that island yet.

Saint why not try to call the Bajan consulate in Miami, they should be able to give you info.

I'm in Florida now in the West Palm Beach area and the weather has not improved from the last hurricane. Ivan is supposed to hit us on monday or tue. Still a class 4 hurricane so I hope it slows down and misses. We can't take anymore rain and distruction

It is approx. 6.5 hours until Jamica gets hit at its maximum.

Best of luck!

Some people truly think they can stop these things. There is a businessman who wants to fly a 747 full of his product into the storm and he believes it will weaken it significantly. My bet is if this guy tries this bs stunt either Ivan will claim the jet or it will make nature even more mad at the state.

He's off his rocker... Do the math, I have. Even if you drop 3 20 megaton nukes in the center (at least Frances would have taken 3, this one maybe 2), it won't do much but slow it down some (due to the blast flattening the cloud circulation), and maybe drop it a category (and then it will eventually build back up)... Somehow, his plane of powder is like trying to soak up the ocean with a bag of spill magic....

Here's the latest news for those in Jamaica, I feel very sorry for them.

"REPORTS FROM AN AIR FORCE RESERVE HURRICANE HUNTER AIRCRAFT INDICATE
THAT MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS HAVE INCREASED TO NEAR 150 MPH...240
KM/HR...WITH HIGHER GUSTS. THIS MAKES IVAN AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS
CATEGORY 4 HURRICANE ON THE SAFFIR-SIMPSON HURRICANE SCALE.
STRONGER WINDS...ESPECIALLY IN GUSTS...ARE LIKELY OVER ELEVATED
TERRAIN. SOME FLUCTUATIONS IN INTENSITY ARE LIKELY DURING THE NEXT
24 HOURS...AND IT IS POSSIBLE THAT IVAN COULD REGAIN CATEGORY 5
STATUS AS IT PASSES JAMAICA.

HURRICANE FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP TO 60 MILES... 95 KM...
FROM THE CENTER...AND TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP
TO 175 MILES...280 KM.

THE LATEST MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE REPORTED BY A HURRICANE HUNTER
PLANE WAS 926 MB...27.34 INCHES."
