wilma is pissed off! look out whoeve she decides Fred is...
OCT 18, 2005 / 11:48AM SPECIAL URGENT UPDATE #4


RECON JUST REACHED. WILMA IT IS AN UNBELIEVABLE SUPER CAT 5 --> 901MB, WITH 162kts!!!!

OVER A 50mb DROP IN 5 HOURS - THE SAME RATE AS RITA. 2 MORE HOURS OF THIS IT COULD EASILY BREAK THE ALL TIME
RECORD LOW PRESSURE IN THE ATLANTIC BASIN OF 888MB.

IMAGERY SUPPORTS THIS. And the 850mb height was reported at 516 meters. The pressure reading was extyrapolated -- and we should see a dropsonde reading shortly.

I will continue to update this section during the next hour.

Steve

3. Anyone in the FL Keys should GET THE F*** OUT tomorrow morning.
In 1935 a hurricane did EXACTLY this, went from a minimal hurricane to a monster in a day and a half, went over the keys, and reports were that people were *sandblasted* to death from the winds.

This is forecast to go very close or directly over the islands and even if it's not a 4 or a 5, it will have the surge of one now -- as Katrina has shown. The Keys were the second most vulnerable spot next to New Orleans. This is no joke -- Keys residents, PLEASE, get OUT.

4. She seems to have
grown in speed. What is her size?
Not good if she hits populated areas at that speed. How much water is she bringing in?

evoke such an eccentric and funny image in the space of a subject line. I can rarely manage to fit a coherent thought into one, but you've managed to stuff something in there that's not only coherent, but thoroughly strange.

:D
