Thursday, September 7th: If one does not want to waste a lot of time on endless chat in the mass media, the link below is by far the best vehicle I know of for the latest on the hurricane situation. This regular article is updated frequently, this morning courtesy of Dr Jeff Masters, the founder of Weather Underground. It gives all the latest pertinent information from somebody who actually knows what they are talking about and, of course, the latest forecast track:
