That's really early for Jeb to be doing that, but I guess they rather get it out early so no one can say that they didn't warn us early.

The eyewall has contracted? Does that mean it's going through the eye wall replacement cycle?

OK People, do not freak out. Bush always claims a State of Emergency before an impending hurricane hits. Right now the hurricane is aiming near the panhandle (thats florida too the last I checked). So do not freak out... Its protocol. It happens every hurricane..

Re: Eyewall Replacment Cycle [Re: tornado00]
      #39128 - Thu Jul 07 2005 04:33 PM

Yep, it is pretty normal from what I have seen in past storms for the eyewall to collaps on itself and then pop up as a stronger storm with a new, better than before, eye wall.

I saw Joe B. on Fox News Channel and this is what HE said he thinks will happen:

That Dennis will continue moving in a WNW (?) motion, skirting the entire coastline of Cuba and entering in the central part of the Gulf of Mexico and head towards N.O. He also said that "Remember with Ivan last year? Everyone saw a NW motion and screamed "MIAMI" but it ended up in Mobile."

Only problem with that scenario is that Ivan passed on the WESTERN side of Jamaica and just barely missed hitting the WESTERN tip of Cuba.

Does anyone here believe there is any credence to JB's scenario? I mean, Dennis would have to make a SHARP left hand turn to completely miss Cuba at this point. I suppose it's possible, but it does not seem likely. But, I could be wrong.

Looks like it is going through an eyewall replacment cycle, you can really see it on the infared imagery.

One action this allows is the locking of prices. If supplies are already running short, the gas stations are forbidden from raising their prices artificially during a state of emergency in Florida.

New to forum. Live in Pensacola. Went through Ivan! P'cola will not be same for many years and if Dennis the Menace gives us a direct or NE quad...we're screwed.

Keep your heads down and good luck to all...

What it means is that he can now call up the National Guard if needed, the State EOC is on full alert and other stuff. Also, there are hurricane watches and tropical storm watches in part of the state, the Keys are being evacuated, etc. It's standard, but it does show you that they are probably in contact with NHC mets who are giving them more info before we get it.
Remember: just as easily as he declared it, he could cancel it, too. Just pay attention to the news and you'll be fine.

If I read him right, I think he means to Cuba and beyond... But, generally big storms make a northern-ish turn... Give Dennis a chance to...

yep...and I wouldn't discount Joe Bastardi...he knows more than most of us....

if he thinks New Orleans...he may be right...remember, He's right about Ivan...everyone thought it would hook...and it never did.....

interesting hurricane...

can't predict em......shoot...I think a dart board with cities on it would be about as accurate...

I am leaning back to Mississippi again...
