  • These guys from North Carolina turned on our power after Wilma, November 6, Day 13.
  • The End of Wilma

    The following information applies to the Satellite .wmv files that follow:

  • CHECK FILE SIZE BEFORE TRYING TO WATCH OR DOWNLOAD - SOME ARE PRETTY BIG AND TOO BIG IF YOU HAVE DIAL-UP. I CAN PUT THESE ON A DISK UPON REQUEST.

  • Times listed in strip are Zulu which is the time in Greenwich England. This is 4 hours ahead of us in Eastern Daylight Savings time and 5 hours ahead of us in Eastern Standard Time.
  • East Conus is most of United States, southern Canada south to most of Mexico and Cuba from 8km.
  • Gulf Atlantic is southeastern United States, Gulf of Mexico and Carribbean from 8km.
  • Atlantic is from eastern Mexico to near Africa, northern United States to northern South America from 12k (higher up so smaller pictures but showes a larger area to see the entire path of the hurricane.
  • Goes 12 Infrared (starting with Rita (I'm still learning))are in color.
  • TS Means tropical storm and TD means tropical depression, never reached hurricane strength.
  • Water Vapor views update every half hour and are usually complete. Radar views update every 5 minutes so there are parts missing. To get files I have to update on my computer every forty five minutes and that's not possible.
  • Click to view .wmv files or right click to save to your computer. The play better if downloaded and watched from your hard drive, especially on dial-up. They are pretty big files. They can be watched on full screen.
  • All current files are updated regularly during the storm. I can make custom wmv files or screensavers. Email to steve@atlanticaccounting.com.
