OK nobody panic until Margaret gives the word (Updated)

As in Margaret Orr over at WDSU Channel 6, the only NOLA TeeVee station that provides weather information for the good folks in Hancock and Pearl River Counties Mississippi. Being in the New Orleans TeeVee market is a net plus IMHO except during Hurricane type events but the good folks in meteorology at WDSU make sure their peeps in Mississippi are taken care of in stark contrast to Fox 8 and WWL TeeVee, who evidently do not give a rats ass about the peeps in Mississippi during bad weather events.

Of yeah, the reason we may wish to put panic on deck:

THE BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IN THE NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA IS MOVING TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST AT 10 TO 15 MPH. CLOUDINESS AND SHOWERS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS LOW CONTINUE TO SHOW SIGNS OF ORGANIZATION…AND A TROPICAL DEPRESSION COULD FORM BEFORE THE DISTURBANCE REACHES THE YUCATAN PENINSULA ON THURSDAY. AFTER THAT…THIS WEATHER SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO MOVE OVER THE GULF OF MEXICO…WHERE UPPER-LEVEL WINDS WILL LIKELY BE A LITTLE LESS FAVORABLE FOR DEVELOPMENT. THIS SYSTEM HAS A HIGH CHANCE…60 PERCENT…OF BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS…AND A HIGH CHANCE…70 PERCENT…OF BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 5 DAYS.

Those of you not following Margaret on twitter should do so immediately.

Update NHC 8-14-13 7PMCST:

THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IN THE NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA IS MOVING TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST AT 10 MPH…AND IS PRODUCING WIND GUSTS TO GALE FORCE IN SQUALLS TO THE EAST OF THE CENTER.

  1. I’m no Margret “Panic Attack” Orr but lookin’ at da’ spaghetti I’d say major depression is headed to East Beach Drive area with a GPS destination of the Walker- Pickering slabs.

    Better vacuate dat Walker nursing grandpa minus his baby bottles to MSCC ( Mississippi State Correctional Center) wit’ ” Quick Pic” Pickering,, his friendly neighbor auditor, in tow.

          1. To make sure everyone knows he intends to crush Bill Walker.

            The electronics were old and he shouldn’t get dollar or dollar credit it.

          2. IANAL…But if someone is criminally charged and pleads guilty, or is judged guilty, and the court orders restitution and/or asset forfeiture; that does not appear excluded by the boat settlement agreement.

            Can you say leverage to cooperate and avoid the charges if possible? Of course, failure to file criminal charges is the same as letten’emgo. And Mississippi? I suppose we shall see.

          3. Everyone:

            If I am not mistaken don’t news releases typically contain news or valuable information. I believe Pickering mentioned the same thing so I have no idea where this is coming from and I don’t see why Miller would even need to make a statement like this.

            1. I’d term it coordinating the message and it is what I’d term a signal to the peanut gallery and in fact should be taken as a compliment. Lord knows one can’t dignify the unwashed masses by communicating directly.

              As for the rest of it in the immortal words of the legendary Flashcash of Finance, “Time will talk”.

  2. After reading the release again I get the impression that Jamie Miller thinks he’s something more than what he actually is. They should have the following installed on each news release:

    “Hi, I’m Jamie Miller and I approve this message”.
