A weather simulation package from FSU's Meteorology Department seems to be predicting a Cat3 hurricane hitting New Orleans again.

I'm sure you will think of a way to pin it on Bush regardless of that fact. :spock:

I wonder if the stupid people will actually leave this time. Darwin was right about some things.

Yeah, the hurricaine season is about to hit it's peak.

BTW, I'm curious: How many years do we have untill the end of the world? I mean, it's gotta be at least 4 or 5, right?

That means that when New Orleans gets rebuilt they'll have to live throught FIVE more hurricaine seasons! Maybe even more, if the world doesn't end in five years. :rolleyes:

Nope. If I were a single person without young children you bet I would. I'd want to help search and rescue lost pets. That is where my passion lies. There are plenty of civilian and government entities who can (well they should) be helping with the people. Not so many help the animals.

I can't believe Bush hasn't already got a fleet of water-powered vehicles on the ground rebuilding New Orleans...

That simulation is a little far-fetched. Since when does a tropical depression gain strength while it's over land??

If NOLA is going to get hit again this is the best time for it to happen. Less than 10,000 people are left in the Crescent City. I pray that it doesn't happen but you can't fight mother nature, she's a bitch when she wants to be.

I didn't think so... I was just curious. As much as you criticize other efforts it's a wonder you are never willing to do any more than just that.

That statement is fugged up in so many ways. Those people were killed because they were too old, too sick, too poor to leave. Kick them when they're down.

In nature, it's called culling the herd. It's not kicking them when they're down. It's mother nature doing what she does.

You know, if I'm ever the POTUS then you can hold me responsible for the efforts. Until then, I'll reserve the right to criticize incompetence AND do what I can to help.

I take it that you have done more than I mentioned considering you are criticizing my efforts and to not would be hypocritical. Good for you. :thumb:

Seems like an unusual track for a hurricane. I think its too close to land to develop into a Cat3...

I posted this a few days ago. Here's how you can help:

Transport Provided to Anywhere - Room Desperately Needed! (For the Animal Victims of Katrina)

There is transportation provided, with people ready and waiting, for upwards of 200 dogs and 150 cats so far rescued from the devastation of hurricane Katrina. What these animals need is a place to go. Kennels, boarding, vets offices, shelters with any extra space, foster homes and rescues. Even one or two open kennels would greatly help.

From what we know, all animals have been vaccinated and are in good health considering the conditions. There are dogs and cats of every breed and size. Some are in groups of two, three or four, hailing from the same family, while some are solitary. ANY KENNEL SPACE AVAILABLE CAN CERTAINLY BE USED. These drivers are willing to move these animals ANYWHERE they need to go. Absolutely anywhere.

The current safe houses for these animals are being inundated and some of these pets will have to be euthanized if they are not moved to make room for the incoming animals.

Please feel free to pass on this information everywhere. Every forum, every list, every community.

REMEMBER THESE ANIMALS WILL BE TRANSPORTED TO YOU.

If you know anyone, anywhere, that is willing to take in even one cat or dog, please have them contact Lynda at the information provided below.

They are also asking for ANY kind of donations for the animals - money, food, bedding, water, etc.


Please Contact Lynda V. at: 203 515 3024 (cell)
Home: 203 227 5308
Email: Lynda@portone.com

Please contact at any time, day or night. These volunteers, rescuers and shelter workers are working around the clock.

Manage Alerts | What Is This? MIAMI, Florida (Reuters) -- Tropical Storm Ophelia strengthened off Florida's Atlantic Coast on Wednesday, but its slow and erratic movement confounded forecasters' attempts to predict whether or where it would hit land.

Ophelia coalesced overnight from a loose and swirling mass of thunderstorms and had top winds of 50 mph.

At 11 a.m. ET, Ophelia was centered about 85 miles east-northeast of Cape Canaveral, Florida, and inching northwest, forecasters at the National Hurricane Center said.

It was expected to strengthen slowly into a hurricane, with winds of at least 74 mph as it hugged the Florida coast for the next couple of days.

Tropical storm warnings were posted for a 120-mile stretch of shoreline from Sebastian Inlet to Flagler Beach in Florida, alerting residents to expect the storm within 24 hours.

Forecasters said Ophelia could dump 3 to 8 inches of rain on parts of central and north Florida and southeast Georgia, and trigger dangerous rip tides all along the Southeast U.S. coast.

But the air currents that usually guide the path of tropical storms were so weak that long-term forecasting models diverged greatly on Ophelia's most likely path.

Two models took it west across Florida and into the northern Gulf of Mexico, the region stricken by catastrophic Hurricane Katrina. Several other models had it looping slowly off the Southeast coast.

"The best option in these cases ... is to forecast little motion," hurricane center forecaster Lixion Avila wrote in his advisory. "The bottom line is that Ophelia will likely meander just off the northern Florida and southeast Georgia coasts for the next five days."

In the mid-Atlantic, Hurricane Nate strengthened as it neared the British colony of Bermuda. It had top winds of 80 mph and was expected to pass just south of the island of 65,000 people by Thursday.

Nate was centered 230 miles south-southwest of Bermuda and was expected to pound the island with battering waves.

"I think we're unlikely to sustain a lot of damage from Hurricane Nate," said Elizabeth Harris, a meteorologist with the Bermuda Weather Service. "It's just really going to brush past."

The island, a resort and banking center, rarely sees much damage from storms of Nate's caliber.

"We build all of our houses out of concrete blocks," Harris said.

Farther north in the Atlantic, Hurricane Maria was a danger to ships but did not threaten land. It was about 835 miles east-northeast of Bermuda and still had top winds of 80 mph. But Maria was moving over colder water that was expected to siphon its strength and break it apart in the next few days.

The tropical trifecta was not unusual for early September, which is traditionally the peak of the Atlantic-Caribbean hurricane season that runs from June 1 to November 30.

God is not done yet.Perhaps he is saying, "NO, you CAN'T rebuild that place if I don't want you to. Not even for a trillion dollars. What, do you think the dollar is god or am I God."
