Hurricane Dean to hit Cuba Monday August 20 2007 ?

Posted August 15, 2007 by publisher in Cuba Culture.

Right now Dean is a Tropical storm but I found the projected path worthy of posting here because 100% of the island lies in its projected path.

These two links, the projected path and here showing Dean’s satellite image are interesting to look at.

Geesh. I don’t know what’s worse….weathermen or stock brokers.

“The hurricane will hit here…unless it doesn’t” and “the stock with go up…unless it doesn’t”.

1.  its now upgraded to a hurricane.
2.  of the 5 projections one now shows it brushing cuba.  Looks like Jamaica and Yucatan goona take more than Cuba.

but remember the weather forecast changes every 5 minutes.

to rework teh old accountant joke:  ask the weatherman:  what the forecast?  Answer:  what do you want it to be?

Latest model showing it south of Cuba.

What’s the sense with weather prediction if they are wrong more then they are right?

I believe it’s not going to hit Cuba. They are going to have a forecast of 10 days with rain but no damage as Jamaica and Dominican Republic.
I am praying because my family is in Cuba. It’s not easy guys!!!!
