Hurricane Dean Hits Mexico as a Category 5 Storm


I always liked James Dean - nice guy and a bit of a rebel, but Hurricane Dean - not a nice guy.

Dean made landfall on Mexico's Yucatan coast Tuesday morning as a monster Category 5 storm -- capable of inflicting catastrophic damage -- after gaining intensity in the western Caribbean overnight. The leading edge of Dean's eye wall moved ashore about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday just north of Chetumal, the capital of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, according to the National Hurricane Center. Dean's maximum sustained winds were 165 mph, and the center of the storm was about 35 miles east-northeast of Chetumal moving west-northwest at about 20 mph, according to the NHC's 4 a.m. (5 a.m. ET) advisory.

This is not good. Hopefully something will change and Dean will slow down a bit and chew his food instead of just spitting everything and everyone out. Good luck everyone.
