PLEASE do not give predictions and interpretations unless you are a weather man, and then do it on your own web site. When you quote news from the internet, please also leave the link to the article or animation, so it can be verified - no movie clips.

We do not want to spread false information that can lead to panic at this point. STAY WITH THE FACTS.

PS: Jeff, I am not talking about your post but the post you are responding to - and that has been deleted - you are 100% right.

I hate what I'm seeing in the forecasts. It may be some consolation to be on the south side of this thing, but very little when you're talking a CAT 5. To all my friends -- I love you and you remain in my prayers. God bless and please make your personal safety your first consideration.


I will have a Belikin -- put it on klcman's tab.

Most recent from NEMO here:

To All:

The Government of Belize has put the country on Red 2 as of this morning and the San Pedro Emergency Committee and the Caye Caulker Emergency Committee are advising as follows:
AIRCRAFT AND SATELLITE FIXES OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS OR SO GIVE ESSENTIALLY A DUE WESTWARD
MOTION AT A SLIGHTLY FASTER FORWARD SPEED...270/18.
DEEP-LAYER HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER THE SOUTH-EASTERN U.S. WILL BE THE DOMINANT STEERING MECHANISM FOR DEAN. THEREFORE...A WESTWARD TO WEST-NORTH-WESTWARD MOTION .. ALSO THE CONSENSUS OF MOST OF THE FORECAST MODELS IS LIKELY FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.

LANDFALL FOR THE CENTRE OF VERY DANGEROUS HURRICANE DEAN IS NOW FORECAST TO BE NEAR 21/0600Z 18.8N 87.0W WITH SUSTAINED MAXIMUM WIND SPEEDS OF 140 KT. NEAR 30 to 50 Miles north of Chetumal

THE GOVERNMENT OF BELIZE HAS THEREFORE RECOMMENDED IMMEDIATE VOLUNTARY EVACUATION OF LOW LYING AREAS AND THE OUTER ISLANDS AND CAYES TO BE BROUGHT TO COMPLETION AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

NEMO IS URGING ALL RESIDENTS OF AMBERGRIS CAYE, SAN PEDRO AND CAYE CAULKER TO COMPLETE THEIR EVACUATION PLANS NOW.
