Still here... made it through the night. UPDATE.

Last edited Sun Sep 10, 2017, 07:33 PM - Edit history (1)

Just woke up.
The eyewall is about to hit Key West. It's really scary seeing the videos from down there. I think they've been out of power for a while now. Reporting 95 mph gusts.
Miami is getting 66 mph gusts with stinging rain.
Tornado warning in effect until noon with a Tor:Con of 8(80% chance of tornadic activity).

3. My advice from three of these things in the last 12 years is be patient, be kind of others,

pull together, and know it will be a marathon, not a sprint. Things will return to normal.

We just got water without a boil ban yesterday after Harvey knocked out the cities water supply!

4. Where are you?

My son lives in Lake Worth but is evacuated to Orlando. Wind might be just as bad up there but not as close to ocean.

5. Lost power here in West Broard County

Gusts that remind me of Wilma, but not the sustained winds (yet?). My thoughts and prayers for those on West Coast of Florida.

6. Stay safe.

I can not imagine how terrifying it must be. The wrath of Mother Nature is banging at the door. So many people in desperate straits. All we can hope for is that it comes to an end sooner than expected. We are all thinking of you.

9. It is moving farther west than expected

I think that is a good thing as long as it doesn't get a chance to strengthen while spinning around in the Eastern Gulf.

12. Update

Made it through the storm just fine. Power blinked out a few times, but for less than a minute. DSL held all day. Dish network went out a few times.
Took a drive around the neighborhood and had to navigate around several tree limbs and palm tree fronds. White caps on the pond blowing spray on the road. Not much in the way of flooding.

16. Good for you! We still have about 12 hrs to go. It's been a long slough.

Glad we still have power and when it finally clears NE Fl tomorrow won't have to worry about all the traffic trying to get back.
