The problem with that Gulf of Mexico is that once a hurricane gets in there, it can't get out without causing mayhem somewhere. I feel for the folks in lower Louisiana--two hurricanes on two successive weeks is not a good thing.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

Yeah, except that last one was actually just a "tropical storm" (like a class 0 hurricane), while this one is expected to hit as a class 4 maybe 5 (out of 5)! This is MUCH worse than what they just had, that was basically just a lot of rain. This thing has winds of 145mph and I think if it reaches 155 then it will actually be a class 5, the worst they can get.<br><br>I have a friend there and I feel really bad for him, I'm sure he's going to suffer some kind of damage.<br><br>
Hurricane "Ewa" had a (substained) wind of 135 mph with gust up to 155 mph.<br><br>Some areas reported winds up to 225 to 250 mph.<br>Keep in mind that Hurricanes also have embedded "Tornadoes" that sweap across the land at 135 mph or better - you cannot out run that puppie.<br><br>Also the Hurrican turns clockwise in the northeren hemeshere - so when the eye passes over you, you get a brief 1 to 2 hour of calm and balmy skies with a weired pressure feeling.<br><br>Then you get hit again with a counter clockwise wind - the shiit that blew by is now blowing back at you. Like you got it from west to east and now you get it from east to west.<br><br>In general you get a double Whammy.<br><br>
