MAJOR HURRICANE headed for a concentrated region of oil refineries
I posted about this yesterday and the track has not shifted. The latest GFS model shows this hurricane losing a small amount of strength going over the Yucatan Peninsula, but if it get’s through between Cuba and the Peninsula, we are in for a major disaster.
Yesterday’s GFS model had this reaching a CAT 4, today’s model has the landfall 1 day later and reaching a CAT 2.
The real problem here is the fact that this is on track to hit right where the US has the highest concentration of oil refineries. Sound like a recipe for disaster? It is…if the current track holds up and this thing gains even more strength. we have some serious problems.
