Cez Karibik sa ženie hurikán 5. kategórie

Novinka

Extrémne silný hurikán 5. kategórie s menom Irma sa momentálne ženie Karibikom. Hurikán prináša extrémne silný vietor, o čom svedčia aj dáta z ostrova Barbados. Tie poukazujú o náraze vetra až neuveriteľných 240 kilometrov za hodinu. Hurikán Irma sa presúva momentálne cez ostrovy Saint Marteen a čoskoro sa dostane nad Panenské ostrovy a neskôr nad Puerto Rico. Takýto extrémny vietor bude ničiť všetko čo mu príde do cesty a škody budú nesmierne vysoké. 

Radar animation during the passage of hurricane Irma's eye over the Barbuda island. Direct hit with CAT5 strength. There is a station on the island, located on the southern tip and it measured sustained winds of 118 mph and gusts up to 155 mph, while the strongest winds were more to the north at the time. Then anemometer data failed. Pressure was under 922 mb for almost an hour when the eye was passing through, but we don't know the lowest value since data are missing. Meanwhile, NOAA recon flight reported 912 mb estimated central pressure winds sustained winds of 154 kt or 180 mph just when the eyewall was entering the island. There is widespread devastation, no doubt!
