Still not looking good for Haiti...

Of course things can change quickly in the tropics, but it is not looking good for Haiti, as Tomas is likely on its way! The NHC has Tomas striking Haiti as a 80 knot (92mph) hurricane! I think this forecast will be close, as I do expect Tomas to regain hurricane strength before landfall... Typically, I wouldn't worry too much about a category-1 hurricane, but Haiti is a different situation... The mountainous terrain is only going to enhance huge rainfall totals! I expect lots of mud slides/flooding... Plus, so many people are still living in tents from the earthquake, so 92mph winds is going to be a big problem if this does materialize! We'll see what happens, and there is still plenty of time for things to change... The best thing to say, is hope for the best, and prepare for the worst!
