Direction and Speed

  • Rick is moving in a west-northwesterly direction at 19 km/hr
  • Expected to stay on its forecast track for the next 48 hours
  • Will remain off-shore, moving parallel to the southern coast of Mexico

Wind Speed

  • Maximum sustained winds: 215


Rick is now an extremely dangerous category 4A on FEWW New Hurricane Scale ( Cat. four hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale).

Further Strengthening Forecast:

  • Rick will Most probably strengthen to a category five hurricane in the next 12 – 36 hours.

Wind Forces and Pressure

  • Hurricane force winds: Extend 55 km
  • Tropical storm force winds: Extend 165 km from the center
  • Minimum central pressure: 71.09mm Hg (948 mb).

Rain Potential

  • Rick’s outer rainbands will continue to affect the Southern coast of Mexico, NHC said.

FEWW Comment:

Rick enlarged image
Hurricane Rick looks organized, symmetrical and extremely dangerous. Warm coastal waters off the Mexican coast will most likely help Rick to become a Category 5 hurricane. Rick could devastate Baja and coastal areas of western Mexico.

As Typhoon LUPIT (currently located near Philippines) and Hurricane Rick grow stronger,  the question on many people’s mind must now be whether the 2009 Atlantic Hurricane Season will end with  a whimper, or the “mother of all hurricanes” could still form there …

Up to 40 Japanese Schoolgirls Hit by NZ Swine flu

Posted by feww on October 17, 2009

As up to 40 more than 50 Japanese Schoolgirls Quarantined for Suspected Swine Flu in New Zealand …

Blogger TEAA asks:

Why Are Japanese Schools Allowed to Endanger the Health  of Their Pupils, Nation

Earlier today, NZ media reported that more than 40 visiting Japanese schoolgirls from a party of 200 had shown symptoms of swine flu, with five of them diagnosed with the disease.

Previously the Moderators asserted that:

  • The A (H1N1) virus [commonly known as ‘swine flu’] originated in New Zealand.
  • They also postulated that the ESR labs in New Zealand had produced the virus, and possibly a number of its stronger mutations, on behalf of a client, namely the international pharmaceutical cartel.

In June 2009, it was revealed that a US scientist had been forced to say that he had been “misquoted”  saying the swine flu virus originated in “either New Zealand or China.”

Professor Gus Kousoulas, the director of Louisiana State University’s division of biotechnology and molecular medicine, had been quoted as saying: “We think it [swine flu] began in New Zealand or China,” adding that his conclusion “was based on early phylogenetic analysis of available sequences.”

In April 2009, MSRB Moderators posited that Swine Flu was A Deadly $100 billion Scam. They wrote: “Is this the “perfect” viral mutation engineered to kill only a small number of  ‘brown’ people? [So as to warrant WHO raising its alert level to phase 5, possibly beyond, justifying governments to spend billions of dollars on flu drugs!]
