Track and windspeed of Super cyclonic storm GonuEvery once in a while a little science creeps into this blog. Tonight I noticed that blogger khloud, who was a math major, a teacher, now does some sort of IT but still touches math-y things, and who once sent me a “thinking blogger award,” khloud is in Arabia and has she has been blogging about Tropical Storm Gonu.

A tropical storm hitting the Persian Gulf? Yup. There haven’t been any since WWII (and I don’t know when they had one before that).

It’s crossing the gulf from Oman to Iran now, and max winds have dropped from 111 mph down to the 70s.

Side effect of Global Warming? I don’t know.

Here’s a few links:, Islamic Republic News Agency (Iran). Amazing.
