Hurricane Dean is Now a Category Five Storm

Hurricane Dean is approaching the Yucatan peninsula right now and should make landfall overnight. It’s finally reached category five status with winds at 160 miles per hour. It has been fun watching it develop and strengthen.

Hopefully it doesn’t hit a very populated area of Mexico because 160 mile an hour winds can cause a lot of destruction. It’s almost enough to make me feel guilty for loving extreme weather. I don’t think I’ll be sleeping much tonight. I feel the need to watch the hurricane now.
