Hurricane Alex Grows Stronger !
Hurricane Alex continues to strengthen this moring in the western Gulf of Mexico. A the present Alex is a category 1 hurricane but the central pressure is falling and the hurricane is forecast to continue to gain strength until landfall which is expected late tonight or early Thursday morning in extreme NE Mexico or SE Texas. It is not out of the question that the hurricane may reach category 3 status prior to landfall which would make it a major hurricane. We are very fortunate the the hurricane is not approaching us over the oil spill area. Rex
