It appears that Franklin is still around, kind of staggering around in the Atlantic like a sailor on shore leave... but... if you are vacationing in bermuda, you may want to keep your brawley near paw as Franklin may be coming for holiday too...

Tropical Storm Franklin

He is still out there... Franklin, that is... and he has gained strength... and may even gain more later today... AND has changed direction... moving to the NNW... instead of easterly as he had been... Bermudians can go back to doing their bermuda things... cavorting about in their Bermuda shorts... basking under the sun... golfing... boating... sight seeing... motor biking...

Just when you thought it was safe to go to Bermuda....

Tropical Storm Harvey is coming...

and... as with the majority of the other storms this season, this is the EARLIEST ever 8th named tropical storm... the average 8th named tropical system isn't until late September...

have you caught the program on discovery channel about yellowstone park? they consider yellowstone a "super volcano" that has the potential of wiping out half of the world's populations.

they believe there is a huge, and i mean huge, bubble of lava under the park that expands and contracts all the time. they know for a fact that the earth above it has risen at least 12 feet since they began watching it and it keeps on rising.

they consider this to be a level 8 volcano...the worst there is.

How about India and its 38 inches of rain in one downpour. Then it continues to rain for a week after. From desert to floods, what a country!

ok... since the Yellowstone Super Volcano is technically not weather, I put the thread on the Environment Forum which you can easily access by clicking Here...

In a one day period. 38". Incredible.

This latest Atlantic storm is the earliest 8th storm on record. Nope, no global warming on record here.

That volcano is a remnant of the west coast volcanos, and is an indication of a hotspot that has succumbed to continental drift. It is a weak point in the continent that could release at any time and create a huge hole. It is said it may have the force of 1000 volcanos erupting at once. A large part of the national park area is a giant crater formed by the last explosion, 640,000 years ago. It is so large that it can only be seen from space. It explodes regularly every 600,000 years - in between it is quiet; now it is overdue.

Modern humans did not exist last time this exploded but its effects are known - a herd of fossilized rhinos were found choked to death under the ash layer a thousand miles away. This was the first evidence of the size of the eruptions.

Once an eruption starts it will accelerate until the whole pool of magma explodes, throwing at least 1000 cubic kilometers of hot material high into the atmosphere. Talk about fire, brimstone, Sodom and Gomorrah.

This is likely to happen soon, the area north of the lake has bulged upwards by almost a metre in 50 years. One side of the lake is creeping into the forest as the land rises. This type of rapid change cannot continue for long without something giving way; every year there are hundreds of small earthquakes.

Read this about the Sumatra super volcano caldera

May explain the tsunami recently.

TS Harvey brushed past Bermuda today and is headed out to sea, barring any Jeanne-style loop the loops that is.

There is however a disturbance off the African coast that bears watching... Could it be number 9 in what has been an already active season?

Stay tuned...

We have TD nine... it however appears to be weakening and may not reach Tropical Storm strength... there is however another disturbance that has just exited Africa that shows a lot more organization... could be TD 10 has entered the playing field...

Stay tuned...

Ok... the bad news is that we have TS Irene... the good news is that it will probably dissapate before impacting any land mass... but that doesn't mean you can let your guard down... cuz, it's still the earliest formed ninth named storm EVER...

usually the 9th storm doesn't occur until October...


:roll:

hmmmmmmm... take a look at this loop... cuz at this point in time on Sunday afternoon, I'm seeing a low rotating quite well just to the east of the Bahamas, headed in a NW direction... it has some convection pushing in front of it and some nice rotation...

See it?

Just north and east of the Bahamas

Bears watching...
