Just got evacuated from PCB. With Florence chasing me out of NC a few weeks back, it's the second time in a month that I've been directly in the path of yet another hurricane. I hope for the best for my friends and family along the Gulf Coast. The tidal surge and spawned tornadoes are the storm within the storm.

I have a friend since childhood. Retired "bus driver" from American Airlines. Now living in Sarasota. During winter, he loves to call me, asking how the Oregon weather is, telling me he's enjoying a gin & tonic by the pool, etc.

Would it be too nasty to call him and ask about his weather?

Sarasota's not supposed to get any of this, maybe a little wind and rain.

it maybe a 4 by landfall

the eyewall is the killer bit
and it is a small ring in the very center of the highest winds
plus tornadoes you can't see or hear coming
I have closely avoided eyewalls maybe 5 or ten miles
everyone I know who has been thru one
will never ever do it again

if your near the eyewall landfall RUN NOW

Been in the eye back in 1983 in Alicia. That one formed off the coast of Houston and came ashore in about 36 hours. Total surprise.

Ike's eye did go over our house, but I was in Romania...Mrs. Beard not happy.

Run from the water, hide from the wind.

Sounds like it is now a cat 4 storm. I'm now at a nice lakeside park near Auburn Ala.
About 200 miles north of PCB.
I drove up early Tuesday morning and had a very nice drive into rolling hill country.

This is the first place that Ive been in my motorhome that there is no over the air TV signal, total blackout, just when I want to be following the storms progress..

I boarded up the shop and now have my fingers crossed that the flimsy structure will stand up to the wind. As my 911 is down right now and had to be left there in the shop.
I do feel good about the four big oak trees that we had taken down just last week cause they had rot in the trunks. A bit less clean up to be done after the storm.

I'm hoping the impact along the coast is not too bad and it does move on by quickly.

Cheers Richard

it's projected to be a cat 4 by the time it makes landfall.

Sarasota is not in the path. Iím across the bridge on Siesta Key and the water is up a foot or so and we are experiencing 15-20 mph winds. Praying for the folks on the panhandle. This one is going to be bad...

Cat 4 at landfall... that's going to dump ALOT of energy very quickly. All y'all stay safe.

Coverage by the media could be a LOT better. As usual...most of it is about shock and awe....very little practicality.

"Get out now! Storm surge! Wave heights! Blah blah blah..."

What is needed:

Comprehensive primer/workshops on how to manage:
  • Generator
  • Property & vehicles
  • Pets and livestock
  • Communications
  • Infrastructure (home, business, storage, etc.)
  • Medical situations
  • Insurance and FEMA assistance
  • Provisions management

It's the year 2018 and we've been through heaps of storms/hurricanes and this is the best the media/government can do to inform the public?
