Dangerous Hurricane Felix is about to make landfall in northeastern Nicaragua. After weakening some on Monday it’s strengthened over night and still is now. It is back up to category 5 levels again with 160 mile per hour winds. It doesn’t seem like the area is very populated so that’s a good thing.

This is the second hurricane in the Atlantic basin to make landfall as a category five storm this year. I don’t think that’s happened in the past.

It’s been an exciting storm to track. Felix has been full of surprises.

It’s a little late but still I thought it was interesting.

We have our second Atlantic Hurricane of the season this year. Felix became a hurricane and at the 2 AM advisory on Sunday had 80 mph winds. The 10 PM advisory yesterday said 165 mph winds and the.

Even more interesting was the fact that the recon plane aborted it’s mission due to extreme turbulence in the storm and graupel and lightning in all quadrants of the eye wall.

This tropical season has only had two hurricanes but both of them made it to category five status. wow..
