Reader comment: "Regarding your article tracking Hurricane Wilma, you should note that the current track takes the storm direclty over the West Palm Beach site of Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne. SSME turbopumps -- a major contributor tothe VSE architectue -- and the RL10 upper stage engine are manufactured at this site. This site also took two direct hits last year with Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne."
