Jeff Masters called it.


The 1:53 eye report from the hurricane hunters found a 920 mb pressure and flight level winds of 153 knots (176 mph). These numbers plus the satellite intensity estimates support upgrading Rita to a Category 5 hurricane.

It's heading to the warmest part of the gulf. Galveston/Houston area looks to be flattened. Another opportunity for the Bush weather machine to target poor blacks!

It's not yet a 5, though it likely will be soon. Right now the max sustained winds are 150 mph. Max winds will need to increase to 156 before it can be labeled as a 5.

Then CAT6. But dont let anyone talk you into buying it. Gigabit will run over CAT5 if installed properly.

Yeah, I noticed that as well.

They must've been investing in climate alteration technology with all those membership fees.

Move stuff away from windows, especially important items that are prone to water damage. This is going to be a hard hit. Even if you are hundreds of miles away, you will get soaked and a few tornadoes might get spawned.
