There’s a lot of hot water in Caribbean this time of year, and if there is no wind shear, a storm can just spin up.

It’s looking more and more that the towns on the coast that got nailed by Dean, are going to get nailed by Felix. I hope people move out, because a lot of them are in temporary dwellings.
