Swamp Gas v.007


Welcome to Swamp Gas in the Imajica.  Similar to the You Can't Make This Shit Up (YCMTSU) section, Swamp Gas will focus solely on news and items of interest in the sunshine state of Florida.

They say, "All the nuts in America roll downhill to Florida."  So let's just see how true that phrase really is.

Click on the Swamp Gas logo for the smelly menu.

Swamp Gas v. 007

 TS Katrina MIAMI

Tropical Storm Katrina is strengthening in those warm salty waters between the Bahamas and Miami.  She's expected to grow to hurricane strength as she slowly heads for landfall somewhere along one of the beach communities north of Miami.  People there are somewhat nervous after experiencing the monster hurricane Andrew in 1992, but this slower moving, less intense hurricane is likely to be more reminiscent of last year's Frances.  However, a category 1 hurricane is still a hurricane with sustained winds over 74 mph, and is very destructive.

 Death from Above PLANET EARTH

I felt I should add this news nugget into this version of the Swamp Gas reports because Florida is known as the Sunshine state.  Unlike Katrina which will likely make landfall as a category 1 hurricane, the Sun has just unleashed an extreme G-5 geomagnetic storm, the highest on the NOAA Space Environment Center scales.  Geomagnetic storms are disturbances in the geomagnetic field caused by gusts in the solar wind that blows by Earth which can impair or completely knock out our modern communications systems.  Can you hear me now?  Blogdrive lag?  Now, you know why.
