A "significant" tropical cyclone is expected to hit myanmar!!!!SHIT!!!!
Myanmar's military junta has reportedly insisted it does not need help from foreign aid experts, while survivors in the cyclone-devastated country are braced for further hardship following warnings that more bad weather is coming this week.


Children receive relief food and water in Dedaye, south-west of Yangon, on Wednesday.

1 of 2 A "significant" tropical cyclone is expected to form in the next 24 hours and sweep across Myanmar's largest city Yangon and into the Irrawaddy delta area -- the region worst affected -- according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center.

Aid agencies estimate that there are around 2 million people who survived Cyclone Nargis on May 3, many of whom are still homeless, and the groups have been able to reach only 270,000 of them so far, The Associated Press reported Wednesday.

But Thailand's prime minister said Wednesday that the junta believes it is in control of the relief operations, AP reported.

Samak Sundaravej, back from a visit to Yangon, said the military had guaranteed him that there were no disease outbreaks or starvation among the survivors.

He said Myanmar did not want any foreign aid workers because they "have their own team to cope with the situation." Watch aid being unloaded in Yangon »

The United Nations estimates that between 63,000 and 100,000 people died as a result of the cyclone, while the junta has put the figure at less than 30,000.

"The government has a responsibility to assist their people in the event of a natural disaster," Amanda Pitt, a spokeswoman for the U.N. Office for Humanitarian Affairs, told AP. Watch Myanmar troops disperse aid to cyclone victims »

"We are here to do what we can and facilitate their efforts and scale up their response. It is clearly inadequate, and we do not want to see a second wave of death as a result of that not being scaled up."

Yangon residents discovered news of a second cyclone on foreign broadcasts and on the Internet as it was not broadcast by Myanmar's state-controlled media, AP reported.

"I prayed to the Lord Buddha, 'Please save us from another cyclone. Not just me but all of Myanmar,"' Min Min, whose house was destroyed in Cyclone Nargis, told AP. The rickshaw driver, his wife and three children now live on their wrecked premises under plastic sheets.

"Another cyclone will be a disaster because our relief center is already overcrowded. I am very worried," Tun Zaw, 68, another Yangon resident who is living in a government relief center, told AP.

However, a tropical cyclone expert at City University of Hong Kong told AP that the new storm would probably not be as severe as Nargis because it was already close to land -- and cyclones need to be over sea to gain full strength.

"There will be a lot of rain but the winds will not be as strong," Prof. Johnny Chan said.

CNN's weather forecast also predicted that the effects would be far less severe.

However, any more significant rainfall could cause further hindrance to aid distribution, which has already been slowed by the ruling junta's refusal to allow most foreign workers to do much more than drop supplies at Yangon airport.

The government has, however, agreed to allow the first foreign aid group into the Irrawaddy delta, according to AP. Watch an aid official discuss Myanmar's response to the devastation »

The agency reported that a Thai medical team is scheduled on Friday to go into a region previously classified as off-limits to foreigners, quoting Dr. Thawat Sutharacha of neighboring Thailand's Public Health Ministry.

Meanwhile, the Myanmar government has authorized five more U.S. aid flights to land in Yangon, a U.S. Marine spokesman said.

Three planes had left an airbase in Thailand by about 12 p.m. local time, and two more were scheduled to take off soon, said Lt. Col. Doug Powell of the U.S. Marine Corps.

The five flights will deliver 85 tons of supplies including 46 pallets loaded with bottled water, plastic sheeting and hygiene kits as well as crackers and powdered milk, Powell said.

Three additional U.S. military flights have gone into Myanmar already this week -- one on Monday and two on Tuesday. They carried food, mosquito netting and plastic tarpaulins. Children may account for one-third of the dead in Myanmar »

Meanwhile, the USS Essex, USS Juneau and USS Harpers Ferry were in international waters off the coast of Myanmar laden with more than 14,000 containers of fresh water and other aid, awaiting orders to deliver by air or landing craft, Pentagon officials said.

While this new development was encouraging, much more needs to be done, U.S. Admiral Timothy Keating told CNN on Wednesday.

"It's not enough. We are capable of doing more," he said. "We have delivered 170,000 pounds of relief supplies, water, food, shelter, and interestingly some mosquito netting. So the spigot isn't wide open, but it's open a little bit."

Keating, who was part of the negotiations with the junta to bring in aid, said he hoped Myanmar's leaders would allow much more aid into the country.

"It appears they're allowing limited numbers but increasing numbers," Keating said. "So we're very, very guardedly optimistic we will see approval for more flights."

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has asked the United Nations secretary-general to convene an emergency summit on aid to Myanmar.

Brown told the House of Commons on Wednesday that he had also asked Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to go to the country himself.

Brown said a British plane had just arrived in Myanmar with shelter supplies for 45,000 people. He said three other planeloads of aid would arrive soon, and eventually two more would arrive "very soon."

"There has been an improvement (in aid getting to victims) but it is not good enough," Brown said. "The regime is still preventing aid getting to the rest of the country."

Brown said it was important for Asian countries to jointly pressure leaders in Myanmar, also called by its previous name Burma by those who refuse to recognize the military junta.

"The key thing at the moment is to pressure the regime by all countries in Asia uniting with all of us to make sure that aid gets to the people of Burma as quickly as possible," he said. "The Burmese regime must now let into the country all aid workers and all aid immediately."


Brown said he asked for an emergency summit because "other countries" blocked a meeting of the U.N. Security Council to discuss aid to Myanmar. When asked to name those other countries, Brown refused.

UN warns that second Cyclone could hit Burma in next 24 hours



Fighting for their lives with only meagre supplies of food, clean water and medical aid reaching them, the two million Burmese left homeless by Cyclone Nargis may face a fresh pounding by the elements.

Citing an alarming new forecast by the Joint Typhoon Warning Centre (JTWC), the United Nations disaster response arm has warned that a new cyclone may currently be forming above Burma and could make landfall within the next 24 hours.

The forecast came as the Red Cross revised upwards its death toll estimate, announcing that as many as 127,990 may have died in the catastrophe.

Giving its warning, the Hawaiian based JTWC indicated that the storm was forming over the Burmese capital, which is acting as the nerve centre for whatever outside aid work has been sanctioned by the junta.

Although the UN spokeswoman stressed that the forecast does not make inevitable a second onslaught of devastation, she described the threat as "terrible".

The international army of aid workers waiting for entry permits in Bangkok said they feared a "severe collapse" of existing efforts in the storm-ravaged Irrawaddy Delta if another storm strikes.

Although it has provided a critical source of clean water at a vital moment, the torrential rain that has fallen on Burma over recent days has already caused havoc for fragile communications and roads.

Aid co-coordinators working outside Burma’s strictly-policed borders said that they had been out of touch with their opposite numbers in Rangoon for most of the day.

The makeshift shelters that are currently the only thing standing between tens of thousands of people and the lashing rain, said a spokesman for the NGO WorldVision, would be particularly at risk from a second round of powerful storms.

"It’s already an incredibly difficult aid operation with huge logistical problems to overcome. A storm would create a new catastrophe," said Chris Webster.

Meanwhile, the Red Cross announced today that the death toll in the cyclone could be anywhere between 68,833 and 127,990.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies says in a situation report on Burma that the total affected population is between 1.64 million and 2.51 million.

They noted that "official government casualty figures remain significantly lower". The junta says 34,273 people were killed and 27,838 are missing since the May 2-3 cyclone.

The Red Cross figure is the highest reported so far. The UN has said the number of dead could be between 60,000 and 100,000.

Meanwhile, foreign governments continued today to press the Burmese authorities to allow foreigners to be allowed into the country to help administer the aid that is currently being inexpertly managed by the military.

In a small concession to that mounting pressure, Burma agreed to attend a meeting of the 10-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean). Thailand’s foreign minister told The Times that Asean’s ability to broker a solution to the Burmese issue was a test of the organisation’s relevance.

One. The news over does everything if the smallest storm is gonna hit the same area after a major one. Happened with Rita after Katrina, then again with DEAN last year when I said it would hit Mexico and not Texas or N.O. when the news said it would. Where did it go? Mexico.

Ah yeah. I see where they think.

They are betting on a low level circulation that formed there. It looks to me that it will set off that coastal area for a better part of this week providing only rains to the area, and some wind. However, no real cyclone like the news is saying.

So they got whacked with wind and rain from the cyclone. Now this one looks like a big rain producer so more flooding. It's that time of year for the monsoon:)

Now where's ours?

I will. During tropical season I'm always looking for those storms on satellite that look threatening. Once the circulation is found and the track and shear winds are analyzed I can pinpoint the movement.
Season is starting a bit early I think. Time to keep my eye peeled for the next one.
