You a Jack, Ted, and Sharon geek too? Smile

This is off of the CNN website:
A bus carrying elderly Hurricane Rita evacuees caught fire and exploded early today on a crowded Texas interstate, killing as many as 20 people. Forecasters say it appears Houston and Galveston could avoid a direct hit from the storm. The latest advisory from the National Hurricane Center has Rita making landfall along the Southwest Louisiana and upper Texas coasts late today or tonight.

Now saying what we've been saying all along!

Also, what's the web address for the other weather forum? I'd love to look at it!

I heard on the radio that some of those elderly evacuees were on oxygen and the tanks may have contributed to the explosion. Very sad.....

The NCAR model I mentioned last night was run again and still projects a Cat5 in Galveston Bay. http://www.ucar.edu/news/features/hurric...rita.shtml

i'm not sure how that's supposed to be a cat 5.. even on their own graphic it says "126.8" for max winds (kts), which is only 145mph. if they can't even get that right, how are we supposed to trust their magical model? maybe it's accurate, maybe it's not - but it's still just a prediction.
