Hurricane Dennis

Hurricane Dennis Update

Location 17.5 N 74.9 W
Max Sustained Winds 105 MPH
Movement 10 MPH
Present prediction on track: Landfall Mobile Bay on Sunday around 13:00 (1:00 p.m.)

It looks like us folks in Alabama may be in for another landfall of a major hurricane. It seems like only yesterday that Ivan came to visit.

Its kind of strange that we're already upto the D's and its only the beginning of July. Last year it wasn't until August.

Throw some of the rain up this way. We are in a MAJOR drought. We got .6 of an inch last week and my dad was so happy that he actually took Sunday off of work.

Basset- I went to AL many moons ago to Dauphin Island. It was right after a hurricane, I'm wanting to say back in 96. Do you know if the Island is still in good shape? I was thinking of taking a vaca down there again next year.

I think you might be talking about hurricane Opal. As of right now, Dauphin Island is in pretty good shape...all except the west end which flooded after tropical storm Cindy. If Dennis holds it's course we're expecting major damage in that area. My brother lives and goes to school on the island so he's pretty busy getting everything secured.

God Bless,
Basset

I absolutely loved it there. It was so secluded and it wasn't commercialized. And all the street names were in Alphabetical order so you knew which way to start walking up or down the street. Beautiful place. Every morning and evening the view looked like a post card. Every afternoon we would walk over to the boats and buy shrimp straight off the dock. We did have issues with jelly fish and such, and the mosquito's were HUGE. But it really is beautiful down south.

Good Luck and I hope you don't get any major damage.
