    Exclamation Wilma!!!!!!!!!!

    (AP) A tropical storm warning was in effect Sunday for the Cayman Islands and residents began preparing for the worst. The U.S. Gulf Coast could be affected later in the week, forecasters said.

    The system could become Tropical Storm Wilma, which would make it the 21st named storm of the season, tying the record for the most storms in an Atlantic season, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said.

    Long-term forecasts show the storm would likely move west and north, putting the storm in the Gulf of Mexico later this week. Forecasters said water temperature and other conditions were favorable for it to become a significant hurricane.

    "Once storms get into the Gulf of Mexico, I'm aware of only one storm on record that dissipated," hurricane specialist James Franklin said. "It has almost nowhere to go except land somewhere."

    A hurricane watch was issued for the Cayman Islands, meaning hurricane conditions could be felt there within 36 hours. A tropical storm warning, meaning tropical storm conditions within 24 hours, also was posted.

    "Because of where it is, and the fact that it is projected to become a tropical storm by tomorrow and possibly a hurricane in a couple of days, we've decided to go ahead and issue a tropical storm warning and a hurricane watch," he said.

    Hurricane season ends Nov. 30. Wilma is the last on the list of storm names for 2005; there are 21 names on the yearly list because the letters q, u, x, y and z are skipped. If any other storms form, letters from the Greek alphabet would be used, starting with Alpha. That has never happened in roughly 60 years of regularly named Atlantic storms.

    Good one, Cass! She's such a cutie .. <lol>

    Our local weatherman on WFTV news in Central Florida just showed a graphic of the currently predicted path of this storm. After it goes into the Gulf - they have it curving back east towards the western Central Florida coastline. Said we could have another major hurricane hit Fla by next weekend.

    Just NOT what I needed to hear! Say it isn't so!! Go away Wilma - you're not welcome here!

    We're still making repairs & recuperating from last year's 3 damaging hurricanes - and not psychologically prepared for a repeat performance.

    Test. This is a test. I am ignoring any prior posts on this thread. This is only a test.

    I have hurricane evacuation money stashed and we have boards for the windows. Since last years Ivan we have felt the need to be prepared. I am so sick of this. Somebody make it go away!

    Poco, that is the most hilarious cat ever!
