HURRICANE DEAN UPDATE——————————–
Hurricane Dean is still a Category 4 storm. The eye is not expected to Impact Jamaica which is good news, however Jamaica could still see winds anywhere from 60mph and more up to 100mph along with Extreme rainfall and potential flooding. There are Voluntary Evacuations already in place in TEXAS and with DEAN expected to Strengthen to a category 5 storm as it passes Jamiaca, concerns are rising very rapidly for Texans. I talked to my friends in Brownsville and they are getting ready to Leave when the Mandatory Evacuation Takes place. Hurricane DEAN is a deadly storm, Precautions should be taken immediately and thus far it sounds like Texas is ready for this Hurricane. The Yucatan Peninsula could see alot of Damage from this storm as the Track currently places Dean dead on into The Mexican Peninsula. Hopefully they are taking all necessary precautions.
