In addition to such well-known mountaineering hazards as avalanches, landslides, falls, hypothermia, and frostbite, we can add hurricanes to the list of hazards that mountaineers may encounter when ascending state highpoints. It appears that several state highpoints, such as Britton Hill of Florida and Cheaha Mountain of Alabama, are in the direct path of Hurricane Ivan. See the weather forecasts for Paxton, FL (closest town to Britton Hill) and Delta, AL (location of Cheaha State Park).
