JSD and para anchors

Thanks for the excellent discussion. I have an aninformed question:
The JSD is deployed from the stern. From everything I've read, running before the storm (of course given the necessary sea room) will be my absolute first choice when ever confronted with a bad storm. Here is the question: Are para anchors always deployed from the bow?
If so, for me, the decision is easy. I would prefer to run forward with the waves, NOT backwards.
