So ive been keeping up with the weather for the past few days and i felt like i should spread some info on the next big one, scheduled to hit right around Miami, Florida on of all dates... September 11.



after that, it could either go into the gulf and just get stronger, or it will track up the east coast the next day.
im not a person to belive in "weather machines" or "chem trails" but this is just rediculous.
anyone here living in florida or texas, im praying for you guys and i hope you will all be safe

Edit: supposed to be a category 4-5 when it hits so thats not helping. i will update yall with info as i come across it.

Wow, this one looks bad. Best we can hope for is that is moves to the northern end of the track cone and with some luck follows the path that loops it back into the Atlantic.

Doesn't look good though, the latest forecast track is further south. :(

Oh boy, another one??
My thoughts and prayers are with you guys as always.
Stay safe whoever's in it's path and as Merpie101 said evacuate if possible.
Easily said but a difficult decision I'm sure.
Can't imagine what's happening over there, never been through a hurricane but been through plenty of bush fires.

Hoping for the best outcome guys.

The warmer it gets on the planet, the more of these will come and at greater intensities. You'll all be wanting to live in Canada or Alaska soon enough.

I see Irma is strengthening to Cat 5. Anyone in Florida and the Caribbean please stay safe and listen to any safety advice. Any more disasters on its way. :(

Edit: Scrap that, just EVACUATE!!!!

Thanks for confirming Diachi. It wasn't definite when I last looked.

That's the way I see it... Glad I'm aready
here.
With 2 Hurricanes in a short while back to back
and all the wild fires in the west... :wtf:
The Global Warming naysayers will probably
attribute the drastically changing whether
patterns to some mythical creature...

I remember when I was a kid the temperature
wouldn't change more than 3-5 Deg F. from
day to day. Now I see changes of 10-20 Deg C
within a day. The times are a changing...

@diachi..
Thanks for the link.

There is no doubt about it. Our climate is changing. I've noticed a big difference in the UK's weather in my relatively short existence. In fact another major change could be placed within the last 5 years.
Man has made a huge affect on our weather. Now I'm not saying that man has caused climate change, but I would say we've accelerated it as the warming and cooling of the Earth is a natural process.
