I can't imagine being that close to a hurricane and heading into it no less.

http://www.snopes.com/photos/isabel.asp

Snopes take on the oil tanker heading for the storm.

Meteorologists (including Dr. Steve Lyons, the Weather Channel's hurricane expert) agree that the photos displayed above are not pictures of any hurricane at all, much less Hurricane Isabel, which struck the eastern United States in September 2003 they  depict shelf clouds or wall clouds typically associated with severe thunderstorms and tornadoes rather than hurricanes, and the water in the first picture appears too smooth for the area of an approaching hurricane. (Even if these images did depict the approach of a hurricane, they're too old to be photographs of Hurricane Isabel these same pictures were circulating as photographs of Hurricane Claudette back in July 2003 and of Cyclone Indigo in April 2003.)

Hurricanes Suck!!!

Country side?
Hmmm where I live - that would be Bucharest - capital city of Romania - its a pretty big city, and people don't know eachother. Weird heh? :)
Well I was not born here, I was born in Transilvania, which is a northen-mountain region. The people are nice and the landscapes are breathtaking. :)
