It is normal for hurricanes that lands in the gulf to make its way across the Atlantic
We got a visit from Katrina too! But what has been a hurricane in America most often comes as heavy rain and stormy weather here. I dont mind, I love both the rain and the wind
If it wasnt for the weather in the gulf region we would be freezing a lot over here, we have quite a nice climate even though we are far north due to the gulf-weather.
And, Ike dont do any damage over here...think we have some greate building regulations over here, and our contry is mountains and wallys so we dont get flooded
