    Looks like she's headed straight for Cancun/Cozumel.

    By the predicted track/models, but reality has yet to follow the models on this one, read this:
    There is more in the advisory/discussion, but this seems to be saying that its not doing what they thought.

    Doesnt mean it wont turn NNW, but at this time it isnt doing it, which leaves it wide open as to which way it is going to go.

    reserve numbers are pretty meaningless though. you need to know what the pumping capacity of those fields are, and what it costs to get it out. most of russia's reserves are very expensive oil to pump...

    meanwhile, Emily's predicted track looks pretty close to Ivan's track, so far... if it curves north through that gap between the yucutan and cuba and picks up steam it could be deja vu...

    The computer models, however look pretty grim for Cozumel.

    Watching with fingers crossed...

    I am on the Island for short three day trip end of the month. (JUly 28-Aug 1) Don't want any hurricane stirring up the water before my bath time... :wink:

    Whatever happens, it will be long over by then. A fortunate side effect of the current that makes nearly every dive around Cozumel a drift dive is that any effects of the stirring up of the bathwater clear out in a day or two.

    I know - this thread came first - but that doesn't matter - just a sick feeling down within that wonderful locations are about the be destroyed. However, the hurricane came first and man's baubles simply get in the way.

    I will be down there the end of the month, too. It's good to hear that the current keeps everything tidy, but I hope that the island and everyone on it weather the storm equally well.
