with their platforms and to
The mayor began by
recounting some of her history
as a public servant. She said she
began attending city meetings
in 1972 and worked on the very
first LaBelle comprehensive
plan. In 1980 she was appointed
to the city commission, serving
for seven years. She also chaired
the city's variance board and
has served as mayor for the past
12 years. She made it a point to
say that she is only one member
of a board of five.
She went onto say that,
although the mayor oversees
the everyday workings of the
city, no one ever does it all alone
and introduced the other com-
missioners, key city employees
and praised the "hard working
She insisted that the mayor is
a full time job "if done right"
and added, "I've given every-
thing I have to give you."
She pointed to newly
installed sewer lines which are
now being connected. She
proudly stated that, because of
grants and appropriations she
procured, assessments were

taxes. The city's ad valorem tax
rate remains at three mills,
while the county has one of
highest rates in the state.
Challenger Rangy Bengston
explained that he's lived in the
city for 18 years. He is a US
Army veteran of six years; and.
is Public Safety Director for
Hendry County. He' said he's
served Hendry County for 28
years and "will continue as
long as I'm able." However, he
said he's concerned about the
future, and accused the current
mayor of not listening to redi-
dents. He also said he's wit-
nessed a "lack of respect" for
members of the public at city
meetings. He also accused the
mayor of "just now hearing
concerns about water." He said
the mayor has "misguided pri-
orities" and is concerned that
she wants to annex more prop-
erty into the city, but wondered
how the city will take care of it.
He told the audience that
the city needs a professional
city manager to report to the
city commission and said that
safety is one of his priorities.
"Citizens should benefit
from each action the city
takes," he told the audience.
He added that a leader should
lead by example and be willing
to serve first.
The first question was direct-
ed to both candidates: How
would you be a good leader?
First up, Mr. Bengston said he
would lead by using his experi-
ence and by working with oth-
ers. A leader must be able to
serve first, listen and know the

Youth troupe seeks actors
The Southwest Florida Com-
munity Foundation has present-
ed the Firehouse Cultural Cen-
ter with a challenge grant of
$7,500. As many of you may
know, a challenge grant means
that the recipients must match
the grant dollars with an equal
amount. This is done mainly
through donations to the organ-
The Dalmatian Youth
Troupe, the youth organization
associated with the Firehouse
Cultural Center, will be receiv-
ing a large portion of this grant.
The youth program is currently
underway and as they strive to
meet this challenge would like
to thank Ron and Donna Baines
for being the first to donate.
The youth program's pro-
duction this year will be "Raisin'
a Ruckus in Muddy Springs", a
musical comedy written espe-
cially for the Dalmatian Youth
Troupe by local playwrights
Joyce Gatch and Henry Avery.
The program's director,
Emily Allen, says that although.
the program has already begun,
there are still spots available for
any aspiring actors or actresses
from the ages of 8-16. She also

The second question con-
cerned activities for youth and
plans to keep our young people
here. First up, Ms. Craichy signed
on to Ken Curtis' dream to make
LaBelle a college town. She said

of Main St. and SR 80 to recog-
nize talented young people who
bring their talents home to
She said the city works with
the West Hendry County Rec
Board and citizens paid $80,000 in
2004 for recreation. She also
pointed to the need for more,
adding that the city is "blessed"
with the Paul annex which will
include parks, lakes, schools and
the college. She said she raised
three kids here and knows "it's
Mr. Bengston used the exam-
ple of his own two older children
who were raised here, left, then
returned as adults, only to have
their jobs take them elsewhere.

jobs here till there is growth. He
added that the new soccer field,

nance change. The second read-
ing will be at the July 14 meeting.
The commissioners tabled a
new, sign ordinance. The code
review board requested more
feedback on the complicated new
ordinance, so the board set a
workshop for 6 p.m. Tuesday,
June 28. A new commercial
design standard ordinance was
also tabled. The commission
seeks to build a traditional walk-
ing downtown area with the new
design standards. The code

He also points out that there
are five commissioners on the
board five individuals with ideas
and input into each issues that
comes before them.
He feels that it's important to
have experienced people on the
city commission at this time more
than ever because of all the
growth and rezoning issues con-
verging on the city now. He feels
he brings a sense of fairness and
honestyto the board and a deter-
mination to "find the answer"
Starting off the discussion, Mr.
Bengston noted that SR 80 is a
"racetrack" and MLK is bumpy.
The city needs sidewalks and side
street improvements, he said and
pointed out problems with Bridge
Street. At 5 p.m. it's often backed
up, he said, and people use side
street shortcuts which can add to
the problems. As mayor, he said
he'd take one road at a time for
Ms. Craichy confessed to having
"more passion" for culverts, ditch-
es and sidewalks than for streets. It
all starts with drainage, she said.
The city is working with water
management for grants and also
looking for grants to buy land for
ponding. She said the city had to
use street paving money for sewer
lines and noted that Elm St. is
"awful." The city needs the money
t6 take care of its streets, she said.
The mayor said that she was,
probably the "last to be sold" on
road impact fees because she
could not understand why LaBelle
residents should pay to improve SR
80 and SR 29 both state roads.
However, she has since learned
that the city can eliminate the his-
torical district from impact fees.
She sees impact fees as a way not

City staff is working with con-
sultants to prepare a capital
improvement plan which will
include the city's future water and
sewer needs. The idea is to build
expandability into the city's water
and wastewater utilities by build-
ing facilities that can accept incre-
mental additions as needed,
probably on a ten-year cycle. The
city also wants to include the abil-
ity to provide Bonita Bay's pro-
posed development with effluent
The city will soon be applying
for its new wastewater plant, so
staff is working on engineering
environmental issues. The choice
of a new wastewater facility is a
complicated one. A reverse
osmosis plant is expensive, at
when a tricky question comes up.
He sums himself by saying, "I'm
just an "average Joe" with life
experience." He points to his life-
time of experience in dealing with
people and running a business.
He's been running businesses
since he was lPyears old, he
explains, and has learned a lot
about the business world, and
dealing with employees much
the same as helping to run a city,
he adds. City government is also a
"business" that requires making
decisions based on knowledge
and understanding the issues.
SOf course, the biggest issues
facing the City of LaBelle all have
to do with the monumental
growth expected here over the
to have to increase taxes. She's still
negotiating with the county on
Mr. Bengston agreed on the
desirability of impact fees because
newcomers pay for the improve-
ments they require.
The mayor was asked why she
does not attend county meetings.
She replied that the county and
city have different needs, but she
does go when invited or city issues
to be discussed.
For his part, Mr. Bengston
explained that he began attending
city meetings last October
because he was curious and
admitted that "I've learned a lot."
He said before he did not go
because he didn't think it affected
him. He said he attends county
meetings that pertain to public
safety, but that staff gets a recap of
meetings. Both said they are

The city is also addressing the

up truck southbound on SR 25
and was attempting to turn left
onto CR 720. A 1997 Kenworth
semi, driven by Kennith Fitzger-
ald, Jr., 36, of Ellenwood, Ga.,

lane of SR 25. Ms. Billy attempted
to cross the northbound lanes of
SR 25, veering into the semi's
path. Mr. Fitzgerald moved to the
right in an effort to avoid a colli-
sion, however, the semi's front
struck the pick up truck's right
side, causing the smaller vehicle
to spin off the roadway onto the
median. The semi traveled onto
the east shoulder, overturned
onto its right side and reentered
the northbound lanes where it
came to a rest.
Mr. Fitzgerald was, not

Flooded ditches bring health hazards
The first few days of summer
break brought torrential rainfall to
South Florida. While it may be
impossible to keep kids out of the
mud and puddles, there are some
health concerns to keep in mind.
Never leave children unsuper-
vised, even when they are playing
in their own yard. Small children
can drown in a small amount of
water. An overflowing drainage
ditch can be tempting to a child,
and may be deeper than it looks.
Flooded pastures can make it
difficult to see exactly where a
pond starts and ends. Children
playing or riding ATVs in a flood-
ed area may find themselves
falling into a deep pond.
Flood waters may also bacte-
ria and toxins. Rain water drain-

evening service at 7 p.m.
Mike and Arlene Carr spent a
year teaching at a Boy's and Girl's
Club Facility in a small rural town in
North Carolina, near Lake Wacca-
maw. They were house parents
and taught life skills for troubled
youth, ages 13-18. After their sav-
ings was gone, because of the
menial salaries, they came back to
Florida and their rental properties.
Pastor Carr also spent 10 years
in the Army, with two stints living in
Germany with his four children,
and wife Arlene. Arlene is from
Sopchoppy (south of Tallahassee);
she graduated from FSU and this
year completed a year of teaching
English at LaBelle Middle School,

Greg Bone retiring from Winn Dixie after 23 years
By Jerri Lynn Merritt
There's been a consistent
theme running through Greg
Bone's work and personal life for
the past 23 years and its "SER-
Greg is retiring after 23 years of
service at the Winn Dixie Super-
market here in LaBelle. "I began
working at Winn Dixie in early
1982 the same year that I graduat-
ed from LaBelle High School, said
Greg, at Winn Dixie I worked my
way from being a bagger in high
school to store Co-manager a
position that I have had for the
past 9 years here in LaBelle."
When asked what he liked best
for Winn Dixie,
he said, he
of his job and
the service he
provided to his
like the service
aspect of it," he
says. I have Greg Bone
in the Felda and LaBelle area
since I was 5 years old and my
family still lives and works here.
Greg and his wife Patricia have
three sons Randy age 18, Gabriel
age 16 and their newest addition
Isaac who is just two years old.
Greg said that after working for
the largest Grocery chain in Flori-
da for 23 years it was time for a
change. "I have always been
interested in real estate, he said,
so I decided that I would like to
obtain my real estate license".
With the support of his family
Greg's past few vacations from
the store were really not vacations
at all as Greg went to real estate
school and took his licensure
classes and testing.
Almost two years ago Greg
began working for Southern
Land as a part time associate.
"The more that I worked the
busier I became, until I finally
decided that this is what I would
most like to be doing for a
career," he said. I enjoyed my
years at Winn Dixie and all of the
people that I have met over the
years. I look forward to working
with them and helping them
now, in a different more personal
way and still continuing my SER-
VICE to the wonderful people
who live here and the ones who
are now choosing to make our
area their new home.

Longhorn scholar balances athletics, academics
Just look around. There are
lots of great kids around this
town. For instance, 11-year-old
Thomas Allen is a perfect exam-
Thomas is a LaBelle Longhorn
football player who was honored
April 23 in Orlando by the South-
east Region Pop Warner for his
selection as First Team Regional
He's the son of Randy and
Luann Allen of LaBelle and has a
two-year-old sister, Emily.
Thomas was one of 35 young-
sters from grades 5-8 chosen for
their academic achievement as
well as extracurricular and com-
munity involvement. Thomas is
going into the seventh grade next
year at LaBelle Middle School.
The first level of Pop Warner
scholar recognition was per-
formed by the Peace River Con-
ference, for which a number of
LaBelle youths were recognized.
A banquet was held in Port Char-
lotte in February presenting cer-
tificates and medals to the schol-
ars. It was attended by some of
the honorees and their families.
The conference then qualifies
scholars to compete regionally.
The Southeast recognition
banquet honored the athletes
with certificates, medals and T-
shirts. The children were greeted
in the certificate presentation by
the National Pop Warner Scholas-
tics Coordinator. The athletes
were also given the opportunity
to meet Robert Weathers, a for-
mer New England Patriot, after
his inspirational speech directed
to both youth athletes and youth
coaches. The regional recogni-
tion is more competitive than the
National, due to the limits set on
the number of honorees.
Thomas has also been chosen
as a Second Team All American,
placing him in the top one per-
cent of the 380,000 children
involved in Pop Warner for the
2004-2005 season. A National
banquet was held in Anaheim,
California, Memorial Day week-
This was Thomas' second
year of eligibility in the scholar
program and his, second year
achieving all three levels of
honor. Thomas has been an ath-
lete with the Longhorn organiza-
tion for six consecutive seasons,
balancing academics and athlet-
He says he really likes to play
quarterback perhaps because
the position combines physical
and mental agility. He also enjoys
baseball. This straight A Braves
fan's favorite positions on the ball
diamond are pitcher and catcher.

Once a beautiful majestic oak tree.....
This huge oak tree was yet another victim of the recent heavy rains. The beautiful oak
tree, well over 100 years old, fell sideways onto Cypress Street off of Ft. Thompson
Ave. Saturday, June 11. Apparently, its root system had been growing in a drainage
ditch filled with water and the weight at the top pulled the tree over. City water lines
were damaged and had to be repaired on Saturday. City workers were on hand Mon-
day morning dismantling the tree.

WHEN WE REALLY
GO TO WORK
First, the willing and able
buyers show up with an offer on
your home, and then the negoti-
ations begin, hopefully culmi-
nating in a meeting of the minds.
The Realtor cannot just sit back
and relax at this point because
the "glue" that holds each trans-
action together often seems for-
mulated to self destruct and fly
We hope there are no sur-
prises during the home and also
the termite inspections. Then
we hold our breath and pray
that the appraiser thinks the
house is worth as much as the
buyer and seller do. As the buy-
ers make their loan application,
we cross our fingers that the
credit report reveals they are
compulsive early bill payers.
Rarely is a transaction complet-
ed without a few problems. A
Realtor's professional skills
come into play primarily during
the time between contract ratifi-
cation and the closing. At this
point, we use our creativity,
patience and negotiating skills
to give your sale a happy ending.
Sherri's daughter, Bonnie, a

real estate needs.

Sheriff Ronnie\Lee and Jack Milholland, president of the
LaBelle Rotary Club, discuss the club's service project that
provides medical information to emergency workers when it
is needed most.
When EMTs and paramedics
are called to your residence, time is
important. So is the availability of
medical information such as what
medications the patient is currently
taking, the patient's doctors and
their phone numbers, allergies,
.blood type and insurance informa-
tion for the patient.
That is exactly the information
provided on a handy pamphlet that
can be stuck right up on your refrig-
erator next to the grandchildren's
art work and those cute little refrig-
erator magnets. The pamphlets are
a project of Rotary Club Interna-
tional and is being impleniented by
Rotarians all over. Clubs from
Rotary District 6960 Area 4, includ-'
ing LaBelle, Clewiston,
Immokalee, LeHigh and Fort
Myers, are distributing these poten-
tially life saving pamphlets.
Also included is such informa-
tion as "Do you have a living will?,"
"Do you have a notarized Do Not
Resuscitate Order?" and where
they are located. There is also a
place for names and numbers of
friends and family members to
notify in cases of emergency.
All this information is necessary
to ensure the patient gets the best
treatment right away, and is even
more important when the patient
is unable to communicate with
It's easy to get one of these free
medical information pamphlets,
complete with the sleeve that sticks
to the refrigerator. They are being
distributed through many groups
and churches. You can also contact
any Rotarian or just go to the sher-

Palmdale Post Office, almost the smallest
By Barbara Oehlbeck
Way south on State Road 27
near Fisheating Creek there is a
small settlement called Palm-
dale. It's rather obvious where
the name came from. It's all but
blanketed with palm trees,
mostly cabbage palms, more
accurately called Sabal Palms,
which just happens to be the
state tree of Florida. Whatever
else Palmdale does not have, it
does have its own post office.
Throughout Florida, and
beyond, the tiny Ochope post
office on the Tamiami Trail is
known as the smallest post
office in the state and even in the
And so what about the Palm-
dale Post Office? While it may be
difficult to prove, it's said to be
next to the smallest. No house-
to-house delivery is made from
.the Palmdale Post office, only "in
house" postal services, which
does not include international
money orders nor pass ports as
larger post offices do.
Originally, the Palmdale Post
Office was located in Peck Stalls'
store, now the all but deserted
large two-story building at the
corner of Rt. 27 and Broadway
Street that runs east into the
heart of Palmdale. At that time
Mr. Stalls was the postmaster.
Long time resident of Palm-
dale Mike Haught knows a lot
about the Palmdale Post Office.
He says, "As far as I know, the
post office was first located in
Sthe big, two-story building fac-.
ing Rt. 27 which Peck Stalls
owned. He was the postmaster
for a long time. It's well known
that the mail delivery man from
Fort Myers brought the mail
early every morning, long before
the sun cast its shine over Palm-
dale. He'd drive up in front of the
store, take out his key and open
a big wooden box that sat right
there in the open. He'd throw
the sack of mail in it, lock the
box and be on his way. That box
was three to four feet long and
most any time o' day you could
see old men sitting' on it, chewin'
tobacco and swappin' stories.
Young boys who lived around
here had their own ideas of that
box and the old men who sat on
it. ,This went on for year and
"When Peck would open the
store in the morning he'd go out,
S-unlock the box, get the mail, put
it up and go on about running
the store, cussing like h-l. The
post office was in the left hand
corner as you enter the store. He
did a good job with the mail, but
old Peck couldn't stand it if
somebody in Palmdale got a let-
ter from someone he didn't
know about. When the person
the letter was addressed to got
the letter it was perfectly obvi-
ous that it had been opened,
then resealed with tape or glue,
and across the back was written:
Opened by mistake....
"There were gas pumps out
front and over the pumps hung a
Small porch. From that porch
Peck could see all over Palm-
dale...see everybody and every-
Sthing that went on. That was a
Back in those days, every-
body lived on credit. Lykes' cow-
boys all ran tabs at the store as
well as most everyone in Palm-
dale. "Old Peck talked in a high,
whiney -voice. Now when the
cowboys got paid I think once
.a month -- he'd cash their
checks, take out wvhat they
owed, they'd get a whole bunch
of groceries like Spam and Vien-
na sausage and such...back on
the tab again and that was con-
tinuous, month after month.
After about a week they'd be
broke again, raisin' h-1 trying' to
borrow money to see 'em
through to the end of the month.
About this time, old Peck would
say in his high-pitched voice,
'You go down to the Oasis and
spend your money on liquor and
beer and you come back here
and wanna borrow my money -
how much you want?' He never
caught a breath between telling
those cowboys what they did
and asking how much they
The store sold a little of every-
thing except beer. "Well, there
come a time when Peck said he
was gonna sell the store. Now
the people who were interested
in buying planned to sell beer
and that wouldn't work with a
post office in the building. (But it
was well known that Peck kept
his little jug in the cold drink
Mike Haught recalls that final-
ly a deal was struck and the store
was sold to Geno Morritti from
Chicago. Eventually the post

These are just a few Palmdale
pages from the past...the foun-
dation of what is today.
Since 1998, its postmaster,
that is, its postmistress, affec-
tionately known as the Princess
of Palmdale, is Evelyn Sapp, Mrs.
Jerry (Gator) Sapp. His given
name is Jerry but far and wide
he's always been called "Gator."
This devoted husband let the
word out not long ago that not
only is his wife, The Princess, the
Palmdale Postmistress, she is
also a poet. And he pulled from
his pocket one of her poems -
his favorite, written over 30 years

Know your hurricane terms
ADVANCED WEATHER INTERAC-
TIVE PROCESSING SYSTEM
(AWIPS): It is the computerized sys-
tem that processes NEXRAD and
ASOS data received at National
Weather Service Forecast Offices.
ADVISORY: A message from the
National Hurricane Center in Miami
giving warning information with
details on tropical cyclone location,
intensity, movement and precau-
tions that should be taken. The advi-
sory will contain a resume of all
warnings in effect
WEATHER OFFICER (ARWO): The
flight meteorologist for weather
reconnaissance flights into a tropical
ANEMOMETER: An instrument that
measures the speed or force of the
ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE: The
pressure exerted by the atmosphere
at a given point. Its measurement
can be expressed in several ways.
One is in millibars. Another is in
inches or millimeters of mercury
(Hg). Also known as barometric
AUTOMATED SURFACE OBSERV-
ING SYSTEMS (ASOS): This sys-
tem is a collection of automated
weather instruments that collect
data. It performs surface based
observations from places that do not
have a human observer, or that do
not have an observer 24 hours a
AUTOMATION OF FIELD OPERA-
TIONS AND SERVICES (AFOS): It
is the computer system that links
National Weather Service offices
together for weather data transmis-
BAROMETER: An instrument for
determining the pressure of the
BEST TRACK: A subjectively
smoothed path, versus a precise
and very erratic fix-to-fix path, used
to represent tropical cyclone move-
ment. It is based on an assessment
of all available data.
CAPE VERDE ISLANDS: A group of
volcanic islands in the eastern
Atlantic Ocean off the coast of West
Africa. A Cape Verde hurricane origi-
nates near here.
CENTER: The vertical axis or core of
a tropical cyclone. It is usually deter-
mined by cloud vorticity patterns,
wind, and/or pressure distributions.
CENTER/VORTEX FIX: The location
of the center of a tropical or subtrop-
ical cyclone obtained by reconnais-
sance aircraft penetration, satellite,
radar, or synoptic data.
CENTRAL NORTH PACIFIC BASIN:
The region north of the Equator
between 140W and the International
Dateline. The Central Pacific Hurri-
cane Center (CPHC) in Honolulu, HI
is responsible for tracking tropical
cyclones in this region.
CHIEF, AERIAL RECONNAISSANCE
COORDINATION, ALL HURRI-
CANES (CARCAH): The 53rd Weath-
er Reconnaissance Squadron's Air
Force Reserve civilians who bridge
the gap between the Hurricane Spe-
cialists at NHC and the flying
squadron. Each day, they publish the
Tropical Cyclone Plan of the Day.
CLOSEST POINT OF APPROACH:
Point where hurricane eye makes
closest contact to shore without
actually making landfall.
COASTAL FLOOD WARNING: A
warning that significant wind-forced
flooding is to be expected along low-
lying coastal areas if weather pat-
terns develop as forecast.
COASTAL FLOOD WATCH: An
announcement that significant wind-
forced flooding is to be expected
along low-lying coastal areas if
weather patterns develop as fore-
COLD FRONT: The leading edge of
an advancing cold air mass that is
underrunning and displacing the
warmer air in its path. Generally,
with the passage of a cold front, the
temperature and humidity decrease,
the pressure rises, and the wind
shifts (usually from the southwest to
the northwest in the Northern Hemi-
sphere). Precipitation is generally at
and/or behind the front, and with a
fast-moving system, a squall line
may develop ahead of the front. See
occluded front and warm front.
motions in the vertical direction
resulting from surface heating and
the subsequent rising of warm air.
This lifting mechanism is capable of
generating the rising motions neces-
sary for clouds and precipitation to
CONVERGENCE: Wind movement
that results in a horizontal net inflow
of air into a particular region. Con-
vergent winds at lower levels are
associated with upward motion.
Contrast with divergence.
CYCLONE: An atmospheric m. cir-
culation (low-pressure system) with
rotating and converging winds, in
which the center has a relative pres-
sure minimum. It usually has a diam-
eter of 2000 to 3000 kilometers.
When developing, a cyclone typical-
ly consists of a warm front pushing
northward and a cold front pushing
southward with the center of low
pressure (cyclone center) located at
the junction of the two fronts.
Cyclones in the Northern Hemi-
sphere rotate counter-clockwise
while Southern Hemisphere
cyclones rotate clockwise.
DATA BUOYS: Buoys placed
throughout the Gulf of Mexico and
along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts
of the United States that relay infor-
mation on air and water tempera-
ture, wind speed, air pressure, and
wave conditions via radio signals.
DEPRESSION: In meteorology, it is
another name for an area of low
pressure, a low, or trough. It also
applies to a stage of tropical cyclone
development and is known as a trop-
ical depression to distinguish it from
other synoptic features.
DEEPENING: Used in describing
the history of a low-pressure system
or an area of cyclonic circulation, it
means a decrease in the central
pressure of the system. Although it
usually describes the action of a
pressure system on a constant pres-
sure chart, it also means a surface
low is increasing in cyclonic circula-
tion and acquiring more energy. It is
the opposite of filling,
DISTURBANCE: This has several
applications. It can apply to a low or
cyclone that is small in size and
influence. It can also apply to an
area that is exhibiting signs of
cyclonic development. It may also
apply to a stage of tropical cyclone
development and is known as a trop-
ical disturbance to distinguish it from
other synoptic features
DOPPLER RADAR: Weather radar
that measures direction and speed
of a moving object, such as drops of
precipitation, by determining
whether atmospheric motion is hori-
zontally toward or away from the
radar. Using the Doppler effect, it
measures the velocity of particles.

summer, reopening in fall for
another year. This year there will
be a difference. An addition of

feet) at 109 Central Avenue is
expected to "wow" museum

An attractive and safe pedestrian
area and the area between the

be creatively defined with plants
in containers, since the entire
area is paved.
"We'll still be open for a cou-

the move," Ms. DeBree contin-

EASTERLY WAVE: An inverted,
migratory wave-like disturbance or
trough in the tropical region that
moves from east to west, generally
creating only a shift in winds and
rain. The low-level convergence and
associated convective weather
occur on the eastern side of the
wave axis. Normally, it moves slower
than the atmospheric current in
which it is embedded and is consid-
ered a weak trough of low pressure.
It is often associated with possible
tropical cyclone development and is
also known as a tropical wave.
EASTERN NORTH PACIFIC BASIN:'
The region north of the Equator east
of 140W. The National Hurricane
Center in Miami, FL is responsible
for tracking tropical cyclones in this
EL NI,,O: A warming of the Pacific
Ocean currents along the coasts of
Peru and Ecuador near the Equator
that is generally associated with
dramatic changes or a shift in the
weather patterns of the region. A
major El Ni-o event generally
occurs every 3 to 7 years and is
associated with changes in the
weather patterns worldwide includ-
EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEM
(EAS): A system designed to permit
government officials to issue up-to-
date and continuous emergency
information and instructions to the
public in case-of a threatened or
actual emergency. It is replacing the
Emergency Broadcast System.
EMERGENCY PUBLIC INFORMA-
TION: Information disseminated pri-
marily, but not unconditionally, at the
time of an emergency frequently
includes actions,- instructions and
EMERGENCY PUBLIC SHELTER:
Generally a public school or other
such structure designated by county
or city officials as a place of refuge.
A volunteer group such as the Amer-
ican Red Cross or Salvation Army
usually manages a shelter.
EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CEN-
TER (EOC): A State, county, or city
emergency facility that serves as a
central location for the coordination
and control of all emergency pre-
paredness and response disaster
EQUATOR: The geographic circle at
0 degrees latitude on the earth's
surface. It is equal distance from the
North and South Poles and divides
the Northern Hemisphere from the
EVACUATION TIME: The lead-time
that a populated coastal area must
have to safely relocates all residents
of vulnerable areas from an
approaching hurricane, This time
can also be perceived as the neces-
sary amount of time between the
local official evacuation order and
the arrival of sustained gale force
winds (40 mph) and/or flooding.
EXPLOSIVE DEEPENING: A
decrease in the minimum sea-level
'pressure of a tropical cyclone of 2.5
mb/hr for at least 12 hours or 5
mb/hr for at least six hours.
EXTENT OF EVACUATION: The
identification of vulnerable people
who must evacuate based on esti-
mated damage and/or homes sus-
ceptible to hurricane force winds.
EXTRATROPICAL: A term used in
advisories and tropical summaries
to indicate that a cyclone has lost its
"tropical" characteristics. The term
implies both poldWard displacement
of the cyclone and the conversion of
the cyclone's primary energy source
from the release of latent heat of
condensation to baroclinic (the tem-
perature contrast between warm
and cold air masses) processes. It is
important to note that cycl6nes can
become extratropical and still retain
winds of hurricane or tropical storm
EXTRATROPICAL CYCLONE: A
cyclone in the middle and high lati-
tudes often being 2000 kilometers in
diameter and usually containing a
cold front that extends toward the
equator for hundreds of kilometers.
These cyclones forms outside the
tropics, the center of storm is colder
than the surrounding air, have fronts
and the strongest winds in the upper
EYE: The center of a tropical storm
or hurricane characterized by a
roughly circular area of light winds
and rain-free skies and the lowest
pressure. An eye will usually devel-
op when the maximum sustained
wind speeds exceed 78 mph. It can
range in size from as small as 5
miles to up to 60 miles (20-50 km)
but the average size is 20 miles. In
general, when the eye begins to
shrink in size, the storm is intensify-
EYE WALL: An organized band of
convection surrounding the eye, or
center, of a tropical cyclone. It con-
tains cumulonimbus clouds, sever-
est thunderstorms, heaviest precipi-
tation and strongest winds.
FEEDER BANDS: In tropical parl-
ance, the lines or bands of thunder-
storms that spiral into and around
the center of a tropical system. Also
known as outer convective bands, a
typical hurricane may have three or
more of these bands. They occur in
advance of the main rain shield and
are usually 40 to 80 miles apart. In
thunderstorm development, they are
the lines or bands of low-level
clouds that move or feed into the
updraft region of a thunderstorm.
FILLING: Used in describing the his-
tory of a low-pressure system or an
area of cyclonic circulation, it means
an increase in the central pressure
of the system. Although it usually
describes the action of a pressure
system on a constant pressure
chart, it also means a surface low is
decreasing in cyclonic circulation
and losing its characteristics. The
opposite of deepening.
FLOODING: A general and tempo-
rary condition of 1) partial or com-
plete inundation of normally dry land
areas from the overflow of inland or
tidal water or rapid accumulation or.
runoff of surface waters from any
FLOOD PLAIN: Any land area sus-
ceptible to being inundated by water
from any source. Normally the regu-
latory flood plain is characterized by
the 100-year meaning there is a 1%
chance of flooding per year. The
flood plain is often referred to as
flood prone areas.
FLOOD STAGE: The level of a river
or stream where overflow onto sur-
rounding areas can occur.
FLOOD WARNING: The expected
severity of flooding (minor, moder-
ate or major) as well as where and
when the flooding will begin.
FORECAST: A statement of expect-
ed future occurrences. Weather
forecasting includes the use of
objective models based on certain
atmospheric parameters, along with
the skill and experience of a meteor-
ologist. Also called a prediction.
FORWARD SPEED: The rate of
movement (propagation) of the hur-
ricane eye in miles per hour or knots
FRONT: The boundary between two
dissimilar air masses.
FUJIWHARA EFFECT: A binary
interaction where tropical cyclones
within a certain distance (300-750
nautical miles depending on the,
sizes of the cyclones) of each other
begin to rotate about a common
GALE WARNING: A warning of 1-
minute sustained surface winds in
the range 39 to 54 mph (34 to 47
knots) inclusive, either predicted or
occurring not directly associated
with tropical cyclones.
(GOES): Family of NWS weather
satellites, which orbit 22,300 miles
above the earth and maintain a
velocity that allows it to remain over
a fixed place above the equator.
Images are available to forecasters
every 30 minutes.
GREENWICH MEAN TIME (GMT):
The name of the twenty-four hour
time scale that is used throughout
the scientific and military communi-
ties. Standard Time begins at
Greenwich, England, which is the
Prime Meridian of Longitude. The
globe is divided into twenty-four (24)
time zones of 15 degrees of arc, 'or
one hour in time apart. To the east of
this meridian, time zones are num-
bered 1 to 12 and prefixed with a
minus (-), while to the west, the time
zones are also numbered 1 through
12 but prefixed with a plus (+). Other
names for this time measurement
are Universal Time Coordinate
(UTC) and Zulu (Z).
