shuffles, please don't post rumours.

I don't know how many people were actually monitoring this weather system but we did post a warning to be on the lookout well over a week ago - it was a week before Alma formed and then turned into Arthur.

Now is the time to be prepared. If you can take care of yourself then you will be able to help others and you won't be a burden.

Arthur has been a sad wake up call and intoduction to the 2008 hurricane season.

The majority of deaths during tropical storms is by water - after the storm has passed! storm surge, flooding, landslides, fast running rivers etc.

Please be prepared for the next one and send what aid you can to those that are suffering now.

The link posted above is a great tropical discussion site - considered along with wunderground and the national hurricane center you can usually form a fair assessment of each situation.

There is disturbed weather in the pacific but none of the models are prediction development or impact to Belize.... yet.
