Some of these severe accidents involved squalls while others just high gusty winds. There are many other less severe accidents at spots around the world where squalls/storms lofted, dragged riders.

Brazil, Rio de Janero Lofting 2002
France, dragging 2000

Florida doesn't have a monopoly on violent unstable weather.

The airhorn idea was first used in Cabarete over three years ago in response to quite a few squall related loftings. I understand it was adopted in Antigua and in some other areas. The guy that this thread is about probably would have appreciated an airhorn warning, don't you think?

People often fail to notice incoming unstable weather. If you guys ride long enough in varied areas you will see the truth of this.

Learn from the past or be fated to repeat it.
