‘Hurricane Stopper’ May Stop Rita In Her Tracks

GAITHERSBURG, Md. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One Maryland-based inventor believes the Gulf States can minimize the damage of Hurricane Rita if they employ something called the “hurricane stopper.”

Dr. Win Wenger says his storm-stopping device uses air compressors to release bubbles on the ocean floor, which then push cold water up to the surface to cool off the hot pockets of ocean water that fuel hurricanes.

The former college teacher claims the “hurricane stopper” can diffuse a massive storm and knock down its wind speeds a lot quicker than letting it die out naturally.

He has the plans to build the device at his website,, and says the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico would be a great place to plant it, but figures the U.S. government won’t act quick enough to diffuse Rita, which is expected to make landfall by Saturday.

Still, Wenger thinks there’s time to get the device up and running to diffuse future storms before this year’s hurricane season ends.
