Ivan Threat to Pascagoula and Mobile

The most likely path is now the border between MS & AL. But everybody from Morgan City, LA to Pnama City, FL still should be on the lookout.

Here's one of the best sites for current data and derivative information.

Keep an eye out for this thing, its projected to land with Cat 3 winds and copious rain.

There's no oil down there!!

In all seriousness, good luck to those in the way. My sister is in Tampa and got a bit scared during the last one.

Hopefully all is well.

I've got a good friend in Fairhope who took the day off to go get his boat and baton down the hatches. Let's keep our fingers crossed for those folks. Somehow, I see them as less prepared than Florida for this kind of thing. Of course, I guess it doesn't matter much if it's category 4 or 5 when it hits...

Latest model indicates quick decline in wind velocity prior to coming onshore. Down to a strong cat 1.

I wouldn't eat Gulf of Mx oysters for another month, forget the 'r'.

It might be interesting to note that they are doing a lousy job of predicting this thing. Whatever its doing, it ain't good. I'm betting on New Orleans, because the thing keeps drifting west in defiance of earlier predictions, and that is the furthest it can move west before it hits the high pressure mass that is currently protecting Texas from the cursed thing.
