    Exclamation Tropical Storm Gamma has formed - may hit Florida as a hurricane

    Tropical Storm Gamma Forms Near Honduras

    (AP) Tropical Storm Gamma the 24th storm of the busiest hurricane season on record formed on Friday off the coast of Central America, and forecasters said it could threaten Florida by the beginning of next week, perhaps as a hurricane.


    Tropical storm warnings were issued for the coast of Belize and the Bay Islands of Honduras. Mexico issued a tropical storm watch for the eastern Yucatan Peninsula, which was hit hard in October by Hurricane Wilma. Six to 15 inches of rain were possible.

    The long-term track from the National Hurricane Center indicated that Gamma may take a path similar to Wilma's and head northeast toward the Florida Peninsula. Wilma sliced across the southern portion of the state Oct. 24, causing widespread power outages and more than 20 deaths.

    At 4 p.m. EST, Gamma had winds of 40 mph and was about 40 miles north of Limon, Honduras, moving erratically toward the northwest at about 5 mph.

    There have been so many storms this year that forecasters exhausted the alphabetical list of names and began naming storms after letters of the Greek alphabet.

    I cannot even believe there is a possibility for another hurricane. It is just too much. Hurricane fatigue will become a real illness.

    Good Heavens

    My mom is flying down to FLA for thanksgiving. About a month ago, she was worried that they'd be hit by a hurricane when she was down there. I told her that was silly...

    PBS had another great program on last night, which I was fortunate to catch. They explained global warning in a way that it makes you realize what we are up against. It's a massive problem. They had some dramatic facts, and presented them very well. There are so many factors linked into global warming, that the danger from it, will come from all directions. They spoke of things, such as, if the temperature in one given area of England went up 1 degree, that it would require that area to receive another 10% of rain, in order to maintain the same moisture level in the soil. That's frightening. They also said the carbon dioxide in the air is increasing dramatically, and during research, they discovered that with a mere 9% in the carbon dioxide levels, the pollen outputs of tested plants, increased by a 61%, now if that doesn't scare a few people, what will??? I'm hoping I can track down the graph they showed that displayed, to show how quickly the Carbon Dioxide levels are increasing.
