I wasn't trying to alarm anyone, but wanted to show that Katrina is in the same body of water as Andrew was in, perhaps a little farther south of Andrew, but I was trying to reference the SST's and the shearing enviro is the ingrediants for perhaps a more rapid intenseification of Katrina as Andrew did in these same waters. The NHC also puts that comment in their discussion as well for perhaps rapid intensification. That is all I was trying to relay. andrew was coming rapidly west and already an extreme hurricane as it went over the northern bahamas. the waters near the islands actually aren't very deep in spite of their warmth, and won't support a slow-mover as well as a speeding andrew. it will get stronger, but there isn't time for it to get very strong, anyway. -HF
