    AXA_Princess i know what u mean for Bim it has been over a century we havent had a direct hit....and over 50 years since Janet which passed close


    but as forecasters think that our time might soon be up since storms are suppose to be further south this time around.........then again they said that last year too and although they did form further south we were still lucky

    Unfortunatley, no one is safe. A large population of this sites users live on the East Coast of the untied states, where it's expected to be pretty bad this year

    Hurricane warnings have been issued for a portion of the Florida Gulf Coast as Tropical Storm Alberto strengthens. As of 10 a.m. CDT, Alberto's maximum sustained winds had increased to almost 70 mph, just 4 mph short of Category 1 hurricane strength. A hurricane warning means hurricane conditions can be expected in the next 24 hours. The warning area covers the Gulf Coast from Longboat Key to the Ochlockonee River.

    Some additional intensification -- possibly to hurricane strength -- is likely before Alberto swirls ashore somewhere in northwest Florida late tomorrow. It should be noted, however, that the most significant effects of the storm precede the center. A tornado watch is in effect for much of the Florida Peninsula, and flash flood watches are posted for portions of the Panhandle and west coast.

    Locally heavy downpours will soak northern Florida and extreme southern Georgia over the next couple of days. Many spots will pick up 4 to 8 inches of rain with isolated 10-inch amounts possible. A storm surge of 8 to 10 feet above normal tide levels can be expected in the warned area which extends from Longboat Key to the Ochlockonee River.

    The Season Ahead


    Experts say the 2006 season could be another very active one. The latest forecast from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) calls for 13-16 total storms, 8-10 hurricanes, and 4-6 major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher).

    My last direct confrontation with a Hurricane was 89' with Hugo. Man that was a serious one. We had a tornado touch down behind our house and destroy a 60-75 year old tamarind tree. The 4 foot wide trunk was twisted around until it separated from the top.
