    That what they all say until they take a direct hit. I have been there and hope to never experience it again.

    I did a months worth of relefe work in Gulf Port Ms. after Katrina hit there. I know what it can do. However with todays advanced warning theres no reason anyone should have died. If it looks like a direct hit here I'll be ready. Will leave if I feel it necessary. We still got damage 50 miles inland from the storm that came through last year.

    With all the storm deaths we have maybe we should take a tip from the Dutch.

    Watch 60 minutes Season 51 Episode 42 about their preparation . It was telecast July 21 , 2019 . since like 1950 NO one has died in the Netherlands from a storm . There is no such thing as flood insurance . It was really informative . Watch it and then comment .

    On that same show there was a excellent clip about the Falconers from Mongolia and a young girl from Oklahoma who was respected as one of them . A dying way of life .

    Yeah I watched that, very interesting. Mitigate the flooding instead of cleaning up afterwards. Lots of money saved. He is consulting over here in NJ?

    Yes Larry . Hoboken NJ . I liked the idea of the Huge dunes at the beach that were actually functional . It was a underground parking lot for 700 cars so when the tourists came to the beach they had a place to park .

    ...saw that 60 Min episode first time around. Instead, we've redefined wetlands so more people can build, and make taxpayers underwrite the flood insurance, smart...

    If it works out right you can make a u tube video of you holding on to a pole with your legs blowing sideways.

    The long range models are suggesting favorable conditions for tropical development will exist in the western Gulf starting late next week. Stay tuned.

    Fish storm, if anything, this time. But,

    the conditions are increasingly more favorable for tropical cyclone development.

    Our local news has not mentioned the more southern low pressure area.

    The Euro model predicts that if it develops into a storm, it may be off the NC coast due to an approaching cold front.
