Historic Hell Storm Set For Jamaica

Sounds bad.

Hurricane Dean strengthened into a Category 4 storm and tore through the eastern Caribbean, ripping the roofs from a hospital and homes, and flooding buildings with rain and seawater. A 62-year-old man drowned -- the storm's first death.

Well...good thing I don't live in Jamaica.

With maximum sustained winds of at least 145 mph, the first hurricane of the Atlantic season was expected to gain power over the warm waters of the Caribbean, hit Jamaica on Sunday and climb to Category 4 status before clipping Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. It was projected to steer into the Gulf of Mexico by Wednesday, threatening the U.S.-Mexico border area.

So at least the illegal Mexican immigrants won't have to make that long run across the desert to the US border. With any luck they'll land somewhere in the Northeastern US.

Why don't Mexico field an Olympic team?

'Cos everyone who can run, jump or swim is already in America.

Sorry, that was a shit joke - I'll go now! :-(
