Looks like Ivan missed Florida on it's first shot so it came back around. The real interesting part is now they're talking about it possibly strengthening in the Gulf and heading this way. Talk about persistant! I know some of you have some great sites with info on these, anyone got any more info on this?

This is from accuweather.com's hurricane center:

"The remnants of Ivan are coming to life again near the southeast coast of Florida. Satellite shows the circulation and it is causing showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain over parts of central and south Florida. A large area of high pressure to the north of this circulation, plus Hurricane Jeanne northeast of the Bahamas is causing a strong pressure gradient and gale force winds near the Southeast coast. The remnants of Ivan will head west into the Gulf of Mexico Tuesday and it will be watched very closely for intensification. Anyone with interests along the Texas and Louisiana coasts and in the Gulf of Mexico should monitor this feature."

grinderman and cfred .....

What you're referring to is the message we've been getting from our Hurricane Center.
Last Weds. or Thurs. we were being shown the hurricane tracks of Ivan and Jeanne. They deomonstrated the influencing pressure systems that are stearing both storms. I really don't know why they did this. But the tracking of both systems and hurricanes showed a looping of Jeanne and Ivan sinking to the South. The projected path of the hurricanes would be one of two possibilities.
The tracking showed the two storms merging and hitting the southeast coast of Florida.
The second possibility was that both storms would hit the southeast coast of Florida individually.
And cfred, Ivan DID hit Florida and did incredible damage. Here's a newspaper account:

Hurricane Ivan proves Florida's deadliest since 1999
2004-09-18 06:04


PENSACOLA, Florida: Hurricane Ivan was the deadliest hurricane to hit the United States since Floyd in 1999, but it could have been worse. It spared New Orleans and left millions feeling lucky in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.But storm-battered Florida was less fortunate. Ivan flattened homes, swamped streets and spun off at least a dozen tornadoes in the Panhandle. In all, the hurricane killed 70 people in the Caribbean and at least 23 along the Gulf coast, most of them in Florida.

More bad news could await: Tropical Storm Jeanne looms in the Atlantic on a track toward the southeastern United States - and, possibly, Florida.

"People are just sick of it," groaned Dennis Mace, who as a handyman is one of the few Floridians benefiting after the third hurricane in five weeks assaulted the Sunshine State.

Hunting for work in the wake of Ivan, Mace spotted a sign that summed up the feelings of many.

It read: "1 Charley, 2 Frances, 3 Ivan, 4 Sale."

********************************
And here's a map that shows you the projected path of Hurricane Jeanne while she's going through her current "looping".
So please keep Floridians in your prayers. We've had a very rough hurricane season....and it's not over yet.
