What are the chances of Jeanne and Ivan both doing that loop-de-loop? Very strange!

Me.
Jeanne will pass about 110 miles north of me though.
The people who got hit by Frances will get hit again.

an exceptional year:

..."This is going to be one of those years that goes down in the record books," Jay Barker, author of Florida's Hurricane History, said in an interview. "It's not without precedent, but it's a very significant impact."

Florida has borne multiple hurricane hits in a single year several times, but rarely in such swift succession.

The last time was in 1886, when the state's population was mostly birds and gators. Three storms battered the Panhandle in a month that year. In 1964, three hurricanes struck the state in less than two months.

Since the 1870s, when methodical storm tracking began, four hurricanes have touched Florida in a season only once - in 1893, when two storms scored direct hits and two dealt glancing blows....

...Consider this: Starting in 1941, Florida was hit by 11 hurricanes in 10 years.

There's a big and significant difference now, however.

Since the last three-strike season 40 years ago, Florida's coastline has received millions of newcomers, few any more acquainted with hurricanes than Ambelal Patel.

Now they know plenty.

Lori Redman, who defied evacuation orders and waited out Frances in her Jensen Beach home, was terrified by the storm's duration and the incessant howl of its winds.

"I'm not staying anymore for any of them," Redman said. "This is my first and last."

The message to Redman and other Floridians from scientists is: Get used to it.

The scientists believe that a four-decade lull in storm activity is over, and they warn that Florida is likely to sustain more hits and close brushes for decades to come.

Evacuation orders will be more frequent and, because of the numbers involved, logistically complex, experts say.

And the potential for damage and injuries is much higher than in the past because of rapid and continuing coastal development. The National Hurricane Center says that even a middling storm could cause far greater monetary losses than a monster hurricane 50 years ago.

"The population doesn't show any signs of slowing down," said Colin McAdie, a research meteorologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration who is on a committee of scientists reexamining storms of the past. "Logistically, there is a tremendous difference between now and a hundred years ago."....

Hey M4 I'm a fellow Oregonian here. I'm in Melbourne right now going to college. We're just starting to feel the affects of the Hurricane. Its raining off and on and a little gusty. Its going to be a bumpy ride.

Hell, I'm still suffering the effects of Frances. Need a new roof at hoe, nine days w/o power. Lost 2/3rds of the roof and all of our parts room stock at my work. I have been wearing my poncho to work in, tired of wet feet.

Looks like Jeanne is coming ashore here. MY BRAIN HURTS!!!

MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- Hurricane Jeanne picked up strength Saturday and speed as it tore through the Bahamas on a path toward the Florida coast.

At 1 p.m. ET, Jeanne had maximum sustained winds of 115 mph (185 kph), making it a dangerous Category 3 storm, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Forecasters predicted it would make landfall in Florida on Saturday night or early Sunday between West Palm Beach and Melbourne.



You FL folks can relax a bit, it's only a CAT3. Stay dry!

Dude...you have'nt been in a hurricane before, have you? Cat.3 can kick your ass just as bad. Anything over 100 mph will tear trees up and sail shingles like frisbees. I guess you're just trying to be positive...but, this is more powerful than Francis and all of S. Fl has weakened trees and roofs. Hang tough guys.

The chances of both of these hurricanes making the hard turns and loops that they have occurring under natural circumstances?

The chances of FOUR major hurricanes hitting Florida and the Southeast in less than 6 weeks?

God bless all of you folks who have been and will be in these storms' paths.
