The upper level winds must be pretty strong and without much shear in order to keep the storm developing while maintaining it's speed.

    And that only makes it worse. Not only less time to prepare for Dean, but also more wind intensity.

    If the hurricane has 100mph sustained winds, and it's moving at 23mph, the ppl get lick with 123mph winds. </div></div>

    Thats sounds more logical if there`s a direct hit with the eye passing directly over. The sustained winds I thought were only those that the pangs in circulation spun at. </div></div>

    The storms in the Northern Hemisphere spin counter-clockwise (just like the joggers in your park Q) hmmm. I wonder if joggers in the souther hemisphere jog clockwise like their cyclones? [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70402-thinking.gif[/img] Cha! off topic.

    The stronger the storm, the more defined and larger the "eye" there is little wind in the eye. The eye wall is where the strongest winds are in the hurricane. As you move away from the eye, the winds diminish.

    So if the storm is coming East-West, and you are North if the eye, you will get a higher wind speed due to it's movement (100+23=123)
    If you in to the South of a Westbound sotrm you will get less wind (100-23=77)

    There are countless other factors involved too. For example squall lines of 'embedded' thundersotrms will add to the storm's power. Topography plays a large part too. Mountains will 'compress' the storm on the windward side and speed up the winds. The leeward side will enjoy calmer conditions.
    Land will diminish the storm's power, but if it is a large land mass. Small flat islands have little effect, large flat islands or mountainous islands will disrupt it more.

    The hurricane feeds on warm poist air, and is sustained by lack of shear in the upper atmosphere and steered by winds aloft.
    To break up a storm it must encounter cold water, large land mass, or wind shear on a large scale. </div></div>

    Man, I love that explanation. I`ll use it as reference to big up I man argument amongst muh peers.
    Let freedom and peace abide, the sun shine, and your love beside me with you everytime.

    Re: Hurricane Dean & Jamaica - Contacts, Aid and Drop Off

    Jamaican Diaspora South Florida organizes hurricane aid

    The Jamaica Consulate General along with the Diaspora Foundation Advisory Board are coordinating emergency preparations for Jamaica in light of Hurricane Dean now approaching the Caribbean region.

    Meanwhile, drop off points have been set up at several churches including the Holy Family Episcopal Church in North Miami, Kendall Community Church in Kendall, and the Holy Sacrament Episcopal Church in Pembroke Pines.

    In the interim, persons interested in making donations can make checks payable to the Jamaica Consulate General (Hurricane Relief) and mailed to the office at 25 Southeast Second Avenue, Suite 609, Miami, FL 33131.

    Donations should include a list of critically needed items such as non-perishable food items, batteries, flashlights, first aid kits, battery operated radios and bottled water.

    For further information, persons can call the Consulate office at 305-374-8431, extensions 223 and 232.

    Diaspora Advisory Board member, Marlon Hill has urged other Jamaican communities as well as members of community associations throughout the Diaspora to be on the alert in their specific communities to collaborate effectively as preparations are put in place.
