Dr Wiiliam Gray, Hurricane expert from Colorado State University, has very recently been quoted as saying the next few deacades will likely resemble the big storms of the 1940s-1960s. Storms like Carla (1961), Besty (1965), Hazel, Carol (1954) along with numerous other storms are liable to raise havoc anywhere. The National Huuricane Center along with the new computerized technology will be really tested. Hurricanes that take a suprising turn or rapaidly intensify will also test the public.

The first Atlantic hurricane this year formed in the Gulf of Mexico late Friday and could threaten the coasts of Mexico and Texas early next week.

Eighteen Mexican ports along the Gulf were closed Friday to small and medium craft navigation.

Hurricane Bret was located 215 miles east of Tampico and heading north at 9 mph, the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami reported. The storm crossed the hurricane threshold with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph and was expected to continue building strength and start gradually turning northwest.

All is quiet here in Robstown, Tx, 18 miles west of Corpus Christi. There is wind movement in the trees, and general overcast, light drizzle, but not much more. If anything exciting happens, I will send you some digital pix of the events.

All is still quiet 18 miles west of Corpus Christi in Robstown.
I just took a digital picture of the sky. ( http://www.solt3.org )
The hurricane will touch down south of here in about three hours.
I need a website that will keep things up-to-date.
The National Hurricane Center site has a picture (gif)
that is from 10 am this morning. Does anybody know of a
site that keeps instant track of the eye of the storm?

The posting time is off on the message. This one was posted at 3:40 p.m. CDT
