rita is serious, and has good aim

taking a page from long-neglected blog compatriot barry, i took a few seconds to approximate and overlay the current (5am edt) projected path of destruction for rita with the oil-resources map he presented from the wall street journal… it looks something like this:


with this map, it looks like it hurts a lot more.

katrina got serious

i’m impressed.

the food was good in the french quarter.

be safe, nawlins.

for decent satellite imagery, nasa goddard has it in has still images (~1m gif) and quicktime ~12M mov) – and man, does that eye just pop overnight

for general information, it looks good at wikipedia.

update (2005.09.21): changed image and movie link to reflect goes archive.

dennis for $5 billion

i just heard a report that initial damage estimates for hurricane dennis are $5 billion.

$5 billion? how is this possible? didn’t all the big storms last year take out all the wimpy buildings and clear out all the loose crap? did people just buy more crap and leave it out? did they rebuild the same crappy buildings? or when a storm blows a tarp off your roof, does that count as a whole roof?

unpossible! i can’t believe this.

a reuters story with some details…

the short version: brazil is about to meet its first hurricane.

the controversy: the brazilians aren’t calling it a hurricane just yet.
