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.

Thank you Simon for the link.

Amanda,I was not saying that this was true.....just asking if anyone else had any informaton. "rumor has it" was another way of saying "I have heard"....please do not associate that with me posting rumors on this board.

All I needed to hear was "There is disturbed weather in the pacific but none of the models are prediction development or impact to Belize.... yet." I am prepared, have sent aid, and have checked the wunderground site as well. Was simply asking if anyone else had information and if they could follow up with perhaps a plain English answer for me. Since I have about 10 inquiries about the weather every day, I like to keep informed about these things.

I would appreciate not being patronized. I have completed 17 years of education and have managed to survive over a half century, I must be doing something right.

Any mention of "rumours" about threatening weather puts people here in a panic. They've been through many evacuations and near misses. Some have lost family members to hurricanes. Please do not post this stuff!!!

Advance warning of impending bad weather should be viewed as permiting time to get prepared rather than being put in a panic -

I can never remember which is better . . . safe? . . . or sorry?

Rumours (usually false) only scare people and tend to divert attention from the expert forecasters at the Met Service and NEMO. They are the ones to listen to.
