PostSubject: Hurricane Ivan   Thu Dec 09, 2010 12:54 pm

Hurricane Ivan was the 10th most intense Atlantic hurricane ever recorded. The cyclone was also the sixth hurricane and the fourth major hurricane of the active 2004 Atlantic hurricane season. Ivan formed as a Cape Verde-type hurricane in early September and became the ninth named storm, the sixth hurricane, and the fourth major hurricane of the year. It had reached Category 5 strength on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale, the strongest possible category. At its peak in the Gulf of Mexico, Ivan was the size of the state of Texas. It also spawned 117 tornadoes across the eastern United States.
Ivan caused catastrophic damage to Grenada and heavy damage to Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and the western tip of Cuba. After peaking in strength, the hurricane moved north-northwest across the Gulf of Mexico to strike Gulf Shores, Alabama as a strong Category 3 storm, causing significant damage. Ivan dropped heavy rains on the Southeastern United States as it progressed northeast and east through the eastern United States, becoming an extratropical cyclone. The remnant low from the storm moved into the western subtropical Atlantic and regenerated into a tropical cyclone, which then moved across Florida and the Gulf of Mexico into Louisiana and Texas, causing minimal damage. Ivan caused an estimated US$18 billion (2004 USD, $20.9 billion 2010 USD) in damages to the United States, making it the sixth costliest hurricane ever to strike the country.

Jim Morrison: Doors singer pardoned by Florida governor

By the time of his 1969 arrest, Morrison's drink- and drug-fuelled behaviour had become notorious
Rock legend Jim Morrison has been pardoned by Florida's governor for an indecent exposure conviction dating back more than 40 years.

The late singer of the Doors was convicted of exposing himself to a Miami concert audience in 1969.

But his surviving band mates have denied he did this, and fans' memories are mixed.

The Doors singer died in Paris in 1971, aged 27, before he could serve a jail sentence.

"Nobody would like to have that charge hanging over their head, even if they are dead," Doors guitarist Robby Krieger told the Associated Press news agency.

Jim Morrison

Born in 1943 in Florida, son of a US Navy admiral
Formed The Doors with keyboardist Ray Manzarek in 1965 in Los Angeles
Band name inspired by Aldous Huxley's The Doors of Perception, about the author's drug use
"I'm sure his family would be happy to see that go, especially since it never happened."

On the night of the March 1969 show in Miami, Morrison was so drunk that his band mates questioned whether he would be able to perform.

The singer was abusive to the audience, and he stopped in the middle of the show to issue a profanity-laced, anti-authority rant, then tossed a police officer's cap into the crowd. At one point, a live lamb was brought on stage.

Morrison then fiddled with his belt as if to expose himself, at which point recollections diverge.

Governor Charlie Crist and other members of the Florida executive clemency board, composed of members of the governor's cabinet, voted on the pardon at their last meeting before he leaves office next month.

Mr Crist is reported to have doubts about whether Morrison committed the crime, and has been considering a pardon since 2007 following urging by fans.

Keyboardist Ray Manzarek has long denied that Morrison flashed the audience.

"It never actually happened, it was mass hypnosis," he said.

"He was just doing a mind trip - as they would say - a mind trip on the audience and they totally fell for it."
