Blinn College in College Station. You go to UT?

It's already a strong category 4, estimated sustained winds of 140mph. They're pretty sure it's going to be cat 5 by tomorrow now.

I hope everyone gets the hell out of there, this time...

Is hurricane season always this bad? I don't remember hearing much about them last year, but maybe I just wasn't paying attention...?

I remember seeing a lot on the news last year about the hurricanes, because there were so many in a row.

Last years was worse than the year before it, too. I was working tech-support and I remember a good month or two of reduced call volume due to 3-4 hurricanes hitting florida.

They say hurricanes go in cycles, maybe a few decades long, of less and more powerful storms. We're getting into another peak right now. Which probably means we should expect this for another 5-10 years at least.

Quote:

The 2004 season was very deadly, with over 3,000 deaths related to the flooding rains or winds caused by the storms. Nearly all of the deaths were reported in Haiti following the floods and mudslides caused by then-Tropical Storm Jeanne. This season had 16 tropical depressions, 15 named storms, 9 hurricanes, and 6 major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale). The Accumulated Cyclone Energy figure of 231 ranks this as the second most active season since 1950 (behind the 1995 season).

I was in Hurricane Andrew back in '92.  Don't remember too much, since I was 7.  Pretty sweet though, no school for a week since it was too messed up.  :birthday:
