Looks like it will hit Haiti as a strong Cat 1 then disorginize after it goes through the mountainous regions of Honderous, should be one to watch though.

Hmmm... that "track" looks familiar. I just hope Gustav didn't pick up any nasty tricks from Erin... she re-formed over Oklahoma at this time last year and tried to drown us. Oklahoma Climatological Survey

I still have a few mold spots in my garage from her.
