Storm Invest 99 is heading towards the Yucatan, including Gulf (Texas through Alabama)

I usually wait for malaise to report incoming storms, but this one is definitely on the must watch list for those living near the Gulf.

1. Levi Cowan says models have strong consensus for development

However, where it goes could be anywhere from Mexico to Alabama....

2. Exactly right.

It's important enough to keep an eye on it. 👀

4. When I saw the NHC include this I thought that this may be serious

although it is peak season so we should take no chances

However, uncertainty remains large since the system has yet to
form. Interests in these areas should closely monitor the progress
of this system and ensure they have their hurricane plan in place.

8. Some weather reports are saying that it could turn into a Cat 3.

I'm really hoping people are getting prepared for this.

9. It's already spinning - Once this gets organized ot will be trouble

There's a lot of open water between NW Cuba and the US mainland.
This in a state with serious COvid problems is a double disaster in the making

15. Not just Louisiana

The effects of this storm will extend into Mississippi, Arkansas and Tennessee. If the landfall tracks a little farther eastward, it will also affect the Mobile, Alabama area, the most feverish hotspot in that COVID-wracked state.

18. Indeed

After Louisiana, if that is where it makes landfall, lots of other states will be affected.

3. I did post an early warning but the more warnings the better

I added a 2.00pm update. Looks like more rain for us in Jamaica as well .

21. So three states that have low or no ICU beds...

... temporary hospitals set up in parking structures, low vaccination rates, and surging Covid cases are about to be whacked by a hurricane that will force people to evacuate or to crowd into storm shelters, and cause massive power outages.

And if memory serves these are also the states with a large percentage of people that think God actively intervenes in the physical world through manipulation of meteorlogical phenomina. So... what did they do to piss God off?

I'm guessing God's thought process is like this: "I sent not one, not two, but THREE vaccines, and that's somehow not a clear enough fucking sign for those idiots! I even made them FREE!"
