Hurricane Dennis wind field breakdown
the 00z run of the MM5 out of Florida State is just coming out now. I thought I'd post the breakdown of the wind field that the model was intialized with. Just click on the map for the full size image. Colors yellow and above represent full hurricane force winds. These are actual values, not model products! As you can see, it is really Cuba that is bearing the brunt of the storm right now. I expect that there is going to be very severe devestation across much of the area. As I mentioned before, luckilly Cuba has an extremely good civil defense force so I expect very few people will actually be killed by Hurricane Dennis.
