Miami, Florida (IPP) - The National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida has received reports about a mysterious set of radio signals which seem to have originated from hurricane Gustav near Haiti.
The signals were first picked up by the crew of a P-31 hurricane hunter flying through the newly formed hurrucane.
New information is being received even as this story is being written and indeed we now know what the message from the hurricane is all about.
The message was written in morse code and reads as follows:
. (e) ..._ (v) ._ (a) _._. (c) .._ (u) ._ (a) _ (t) . (e) _.(N) _ _ _ (O) _.(n)_ _ _
(o) ._ _ (w) end of message.
After studying the message scientists have quickly determined that this message is from the hurricane and it means: "evacuate N.O. now" or evacuate New Orleans now.
It is obvious that when Katrina hit New Orleans that the people there had clearly been told well in advance that the category 5 storm was headed their way and that message was ignored from the politicians in charge all the way down to the man on the street.
Scientists at the National Hurricane Center predict that if Gustav takes a southern track that it could emerge from the near west coast of Cuba and enter the warmest water in the Atlantic basin and then recurve northward and strike New Orleans and do so possibly as a category 5 storm.
