CURRENTLY TWO SUPER HURRICANES ARE IN ACTION
HURRICANE RICK AND MAJOR TYPHOON LUPIT
HURRICANE RICK IS THE SECOND MOST POWERFUL HURRICANE IN THE EASTERN PACIFIC
RICK GREW RAPIDLY YESTERDAY MORNING WITH WINDS OF 180MPH AND CENTRAL
PRESSURE OF 906mb.THE PREVIOUS RECORDED WAS HURRICANE LINDA IN THE
YEAR 1997 WHICH HAD WINDS OF 185MPH AND CENTRAL PRESSURE OF 902mb.
HURRICANE rick was the second one as it could get light wind shear,
high ocean heat content, and plenty of mid-level atmospheric
moisture--to reach its MPI and intensify into one of the strongest and
most spectacular tropical cyclones ever recorded. The last tropical
cyclone to attain Rick's intensity was Australia's Cyclone Monica of
2006, which also had 180 mph winds.Wind shear will gradually increase
and ocean heat content decrease over the next few days as Rick
approaches Baja, and the hurricane should weaken considerably before
landfall on Wednesday. The latest GFDL model run puts Rick at Category
2 strength, but Rick could still be a major Category 3 hurricane at
landfall, as predicted by the HWRF model.
Currently rick is at 15.8N,108.3 W
Winds are of 170mph
Movement is WNW at 13mph.
