As of this time...the NHC has not implied that there will be a tropical cyclone in the western Gulf...the official track only makes it to the Yucatan Channel at this time. The Error cone (Which is more important than the skinny black line) only makes it to the south central and southeast gulf at this time as well. This is not the time or the place, but I cannot concur with statements regarding emergency planning on the government level (They are ongoing) or decisions and feelings of individual citizens in the career that I am in.
On a side note, it is apparent that 05 definately did not redevelop to the SE...it was an optical illusion. Nice t-storms developing right around the western periphery of the surface center now though.
Edit: I meant western, not eastern periphery. Also, I think I should clarify my other statements cause I didn't mean to sound blunt...I am quite sure there are individual folks that are on edge when hearing the possible prospect of a hurricane in the Gulf...especially in the North Central Gulf. As far as emergency personnel planning...folks in this line of work throughout the Gulf have enough knowledge of a storm out there that they are reveiwing their proceedures and making considerations and plans should this head in their general direction. There is not a wait for until the skinny black line passes right over a jurisdiction before acting anymore...a lot has changed (I call it proactive instead of reactive).
