Re: Nature Visits Nurture- Noel- the tropical storm visits Alqaeda terrorists in their adopted home of Guantanamo, Cuba in the Caribbean.

In a unique turn of events- Nature in its furry is visiting its counterparts the subdued Alqaeda Network operatives at the Guantanamo Prison, Cuba.

For quite some time we have been observing the destructive impacts of nature and nurture in the person of tropical storms and arson generated firestorm in the American continent. However, for the first time the Alqaeda Terrorist operatives visiting the Caribbean for their enforced rehabilitation are going to meet Noel.

The challenge is that this unique encounter could have collateral damage to the unsuspecting peaceful community of the Caribbean and Latin Americans.

The opportunity for scientists and other hosts of this unique event is to make this unique encounter as less dangerous as possible. Here is an interesting account of how we live our rather inters ting and dangerous lives of entertaining the furies of nature and nurture in one continent that is besieged with man made and climate generated violence, draught, firestorm and now tropical storm.

When will we harness these powerful forces towards alternative energy to manage our carbon fossil fuel excesses.

So much energy that can be converted into productive force to change the paradigm of our economic systems is wasted in man made and natural disasters that is preventable if only we had the Nobel Laureates and Policy Making geniuses in positive win-win energy for good.

All the same, it is critical that we host Noel in the Caribbean with some respect as he can easily convert into powerful hurricanes with serious consequence for the whole continent.

Here is the announcement or rather the forecast about Noel's visitation to the Caribbean. May he leave the region in peace is our best welcome for now.

Tropical Storm Noel lashes Haiti
By JONATHAN M. KATZ, Associated Press Writer1 hour, 56 minutes ago

Officials in Haiti feared flash floods would hit impoverished areas of the nation early Monday, as Tropical Storm Noel lashed the country with heavy rains.

Noel, the 14th named storm of the Atlantic season, was projected to reach Haiti and the Dominican Republic — which share the island of Hispaniola — in the morning before heading on toward Cuba.

The strengthening Caribbean storm, which formed into a tropical storm Sunday, poses a serious threat to Haiti, where floods killed at least 37 earlier this month.

Noel had sustained winds of about 50 mph and its outer bands were dumping rain over Hispaniola overnight, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami.

At 5 a.m. EDT, Noel's center was roughly 40 miles south of the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince, forecasters said.

The meandering storm was spinning north-northwest at roughly 6 mph, on a projected track that would bring its center near the southeastern peninsula of Haiti.

A tropical storm warning was issued for the entire Haitian coastline and parts of neighboring Dominican Republic's southern coast.

Forecasters said Noel, with tropical storm force winds fanning 140 miles from its center, could drop 10 to 20 inches of water on Hispaniola, southeastern Cuba and Jamaica.

Dominican authorities said at least 600 people had been evacuated as the storm touched off landslides, flooded rivers and pushed storm surges onto Santo Domingo's seaside boulevard.

Swollen rivers also forced evacuations in Cabaret, a town north of Port-au-Prince where floods killed at least 23 people earlier this month, said Marie Alta Jean-Baptiste, director of Haiti's civil protection agency.

"We are working hard to make sure everything goes well and that every citizen knows a cyclone is coming," Jean-Baptiste said. It could take days for Haitian authorities to learn of flooding in some parts of the country, where communications are limited.

A tropical storm warning and a hurricane watch were issued for southeastern parts of Cuba, including the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay where the U.S. military holds some 330 detainees on suspicion of links to terrorism.

"I don't envision the storm will have any tangible impacts on detention operations as the modern facilities have been constructed to withstand high winds and significant rainfall," said Navy Cmdr. Jeffrey Gordon, a Pentagon spokesman.

Flood concerns on Saturday forced three U.S. senators to cut short a trip to Haiti, where they'd planned to survey damage caused by earlier storms.

"It was just raining like mad," Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa told The Associated Press before flying out of Port-au-Prince Saturday evening. Senators Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico and Tennessee's Bob Corker were also visiting.

Widespread deforestation and poor drainage mean that even moderate rains can cause devastation in Haiti, where thousands of people build ramshackle homes in flood plains.

In 2004 the Caribbean nation was hit by Tropical Storm Jeanne, which triggered flooding and mudslides that killed more than 2,000 people. That storm later strengthened into a hurricane.
