Ye Gods, Isabel: What a Monster

top.isabel.jpg


This thing’s a monster, with winds up to 195 MPH (312 KM/H); and it’s going to flatten Bermuda shortly. I don’t know if the scale on the map is right, but it seems to be bigger than the state of Georgia. Dang, that’s quite a storm.

My mom was in Miami for the cleanup after hurricane Andrew, which I think was also a category 5 hurricane, but not quite as big as this one. Andrew was such a spectactular storm, that they actually sold videos of it after it was all over. When I went down there, there were still thousands of people living in shelters, and it was 6 months after the fact.

I hope it peters out before it reaches Florida. With that size, it’ll stay at tropical storm status all the way through Kentucky (note: I have absolutely no meteorological experience whatsoever. It could be that this is all way overrated. I’m gullible and pessimistic.)

NOTE:
hur·ri·cane ( P ) Pronunciation Key (hûr-kn, hr-) n.
1. A severe tropical cyclone originating in the equatorial regions of the Atlantic Ocean or Caribbean Sea or eastern regions of the Pacific Ocean, traveling north, northwest, or northeast from its point of origin, and usually involving heavy rains.
[from Dictionary.com/hurricane]
