No doubt all of you have heard about the Zika Virus being spread around the world. Below is an excerpt from one of the most recent published announcements on it.
Zika virus is transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected Aedes mosquito. While there is a risk of sexual transmission, the predominant means of spread is through the Aedes mosquito. Infected individuals may experience fever, rash, conjunctivitis, and muscle and joint pain for a short period. Of particular concern is the association of Zika virus infection in pregnant women resulting in possible microcephaly in their newborn child. Another association is with Guillain-Barre Syndrome in infected individuals. There is no vaccine or medication available to prevent Zika virus infection.

Hurricanes are Mother Nature’s most severe storms. High winds, clouds and rain move around the calm center of the hurricane, referred to as the “eye of the hurricane”.
Surrounding the “eye of the hurricane” is the strongest winds of the hurricane. These winds are known as the Eye wall. These winds swirl around the eye in a counter-clockwise motion at speeds anywhere from 74 to 200 MPH. In the summer and late fall, the air over the ocean warms up considerably, picks up moisture and begins to move in a circular motion, forming a tropical depression. If the wind speed accelerates above 39 mph, then it is classified has a Tropical Storm and is giving a name. When the wind reaches 74 mph, then the storm becomes a hurricane.
