Oh, here we go again...

The Bahamas got hammered by Frances, and Florida's getting it now too. And in another week or so, it may very well be deja vu as Ivan comes barrelling through. It was called a hurricane with today's 5AM advisory with the 5 day track taking it over Haiti/Dominican Republic and over the Bahamas. But it's still early yet and a long way away. Definitely another one to keep an eye on.

Apparently August has been a particularly busy season too, with 8 named storms so far. A record from what I've read.

In the meantime, if you've got some extra cash burning a hole in your pocket, consider making a donation to the Red Cross' Disaster Relief Fund. You can even donate your spare change at a Coinstar machine.
