Do you think the oil spill in the gulf will kill...

Ida is a cat. 2!

Okay, I think this storm is coming out of hand. Where it is now, most people predicted only 50 mph winds, but it is doubled that! With that, WAHA is predicting Ida to stay in the gulf of Mexico for three more days, until the front right next to it will sweep it across Florida. As it does, it will become extratropical. With that being said, get in mind that this is a slow storm. Starting from the southwestern caribbean, it took five days to get where it is now.

As it was crossing Nicaragua and Honduras, some of its clouds traversed eastsoutheastward into El Salvador. This caused major flooding there, and as many as 54 people are dead. If there's 54 there alone, plus those lost in other countries, plus the USA landfall to come, I wouldn't be surprised if Ida is a retired name by spring.

almost 4 hrs in now

gettin hard

Now starting LTR

LTR is the Liginiment Typhology Research. Okay, typhology is a made up word, but I see it as the study of tropical cyclones.
For 36 hours straight I will be using images of the atlantic, from Noaa, amd at the end I will put the images together and find a way to predict hurricanes two weeks into the future, being as accurate as today's 1 day forecast. This is the first of six times that this is hapenning, the next two? One's in december, the other in either march or april.

Ida forms

Well, here it is. Ida has formed, and is threatening Nicaragua. I repeat, Nicaragua has a Tropical storm alert. You might want to plan where you evacuate; and fast if you haven't even started yet. Make sure you have 3 days or more of inperishable food and water. Also, if you are in the storm, and a person just happens to go through the window (from the other half, this only happens if the eye is over it and it moves away suddenly and gets caught in the wind), and has no pulse, it is possible to save that person with a defibrillator. Keep away from windows, because a window that is not covered by wood is asking for pricey fixes, and instant death. After Ida hits Nicaragua, there is also Florida on the line, possibly getting a maximal tropical storm or minimal hurricane. I repeat, Florida has a Tropical storm advisory. You might...the hell with it you don't want to hear it all again.
In case you're wondering why it doesn't look like anything that's going to affect Florida, it's because it's going sooooooo slow! By the way, I thank Noaa imagery for making it's picture available on google Earth possible.
