This work was supported by the Laboratory Directed Research and Development Program of Los Alamos National Laboratory, which is under the auspices of the National Nuclear Security Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy under DOE Contracts W-7405-ENG-36 and LA-UR-03–9158. Computer resources were provided both by the Computing Division at Los Alamos and a small Linux cluster maintained by Dave Moulton in the Theoretical Division at Los Alamos. Thanks also goes out to Jim Kao for the code used in calculating the initial conditions for the hurricane simulations and for constructive comments made by anonymous reviewers.
