Hi everybody, Dr. Rob Carver filling in for Jeff while he's on vacation.

Things have quieted down in the tropics. No invests are active, and the tropical waves at sea don't have many thunderstorms associated with them. However, the moisture associated with Alex and TD Two is still bring widespread showers to Mexico/Texas which is contributing to flooding alon the Rio Grande. Here are several videos documenting the troubles along the Rio Grande.









Finally, here's a story about relief efforts in northern Mexico for villages cutoff by flood damaged roads and bridges.


Next update
Jeff should be back on Monday. Have a good weekend.

2304 Earth Dragon: It was a hobby for me. I shot 35mm film. Tripod mount, with a remote cable trigger. Held the shutter open for 3-7 seconds or so, depending on how the storm was popping. Sold only a few shots, but that was enough to pay for more film and processing.

Yes it was an exciting stress relief. Katrina took my equipment and I find that other things now consume my time.

You have an outstanding technique and skill. Please continue to take shots and post the results. Such that others may live vicariously through your efforts.

Tornadoes are by far one of my favorite weather events. I'd love to be a storm chasers when I'm a little older.

I just wanted to make sure I understood you correctly. I was a 25 year old living in Port Charlotte, FL back then. It has changed for the worse since then unfortunately.

The earth will be here for 5 billion more years. Early in this time period, if the human race does not destroy itself, its technology will reach a synoptic limit after a few hundred thousand years and we will be traveling to the stars...pfffft...

Maybe a weak tropical storm or a depression, but not a typhoon.

Yep, Hugo did a number to east PR, I guess the video was shot at Fajardo or Luquillo.
But I came around two years after that so no experience from me. LOL!

Never felt better! Well, actually I felt a lot better about 50 years ago. Sigh!

I see what the NHC is saying about the 2nd system over Africa!!

They all look pretty healthy. And it is only July 11. The waves should become more intense the deeper we get into the season.
