    I guess they don't do Q names.
    WE all could get lucky with this one. Philippe is out there spinning like a fish storm so maybe both of them will leave us alone.

    MIAMI - A hurricane watch was issued for the Florida Keys as a tropical depression moved over the southern Bahamas on Sunday and was expected to strengthen into a named storm, forecasters said.

    The depression had the potential to cross into the Gulf of Mexico, the National Hurricane Center said.

    The watch means that hurricane conditions with sustained wind of at least 74 mph are possible by late Monday, according to the Miami-based hurricane center.

    The news just reported no school tomorrow and they have requested that all non residents evacuate.


    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050918/ap_on_re_us/tropical_weather


    Visitors were told to evacuate parts of the Florida Keys. Monroe County emergency management officials issued the evacuation order for visitors on islands extending from the Seven Mile Bridge through Key West, including the Dry Tortugas.

    A hurricane watch was posted for the entire Florida Keys.

    "It does look like that there is the potential for it to become a hurricane, near or just before it reaches the Florida Keys," said Daniel Brown, a meteorologist at the National Hurricane Center.

    The watch means that hurricane conditions with sustained wind of at least 74 mph are possible by late Monday, according to the Miami-based hurricane center.

    Long-term forecasts show the system heading generally toward the west in the Gulf of Mexico toward Texas or Mexico later in the week, but such forecasts are subject to large errors. That means that areas ravaged by Hurricane Katrina could potentially be in the storm's path.

    "Once it reaches the Gulf, really everybody should pay attention at that point," Brown said.

    My hope is that it stays weak, and won't do much damage. :chicken:

    After Rita is 'Stan' then hypothetically Tammy, Vince & Wilma and thats it for the year. I wonder if they have ever run out of names?
