Re: Ike Approaching Great Inagua, Hanna Extratropical

Timing will mean everything, but something else to consider, that was mentioned awhile back but has not been mentioned with Ike. More powerful hurricanes typically are more likely to move poleward. So this would tend to result in more of a threat to the central Gulf than to Texas. I don't know or understand the mechanics behind it, though.
