We are still in Hurricane season … however we have been lucky so far ~ perhaps until now. Last night, we received messsages from the schools and all are closed today due to the heavy rains expected. Nothing yet so far but it looks as though we will be getting a DUMP of it. Flooding ~ here we come. Mexico has been tragically hit these last few months with hurricanes that have left severe damage, devastation and death in its’ wake. We have been lucky as we’ve only gotten the ‘aftermath’ rains or ‘on the way to’ rains (heavy rains though I might add).
Now, however, it appears as though we ‘MAY’ see a little more than just the rains …
“” From NOAA: DATA FROM AN AIR FORCE RESERVE HURRICANE HUNTER AIRCRAFT INDICATES THAT THE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE LOCATED OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN GULF OF MEXICO HAS BECOME A TROPICAL STORM AND IS PRODUCING WINDS OF UP TO 60 MPH IN THE EXTREME SOUTHEASTERN GULF OF MEXICO. A SPECIAL ADVISORY WILL BE ISSUED WITHIN THE NEXT HOUR … AND HURRICANE AND TROPICAL STORM WATCHES WILL BE ISSUED FOR PORTIONS OF THE NORTHERNGULF COAST. THIS SYSTEM HAS A HIGH CHANCE … NEAR 100 PERCENT … OF BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS … AND A HIGH CHANCE … NEAR 100 PERCENT … OF BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 5 DAYS AS IT MOVES NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD.
ADDITIONALLY … LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS COULD AFFECT PORTIONS OF CUBA AND THE YUCATAN PENINSULA DURING THE NEXT DAY OR TWO. AN AIR FORCE RESERVE HURRICANE HUNTER AIRCRAFT IS CURRENTLY INVESTIGATING THE SYSTEM””
