Hurricane Irma

Recommended Posts

Strongest sustained hurricane in Atlantic Ocean history.  180 mph sustained heading towards the Florida Straits. Hoping it would clip Cuba to calm her down a little.

Rick Scott just closed all public schools in the entire state. 

We're as ready as we think we need to be. Food, water, candles, gas and liquor. 

New house built to withstand high winds. Just hope they pick up all the building debris and materials before Sunday!

Goodness! I hope it wouldn't hit those people in Cuba. Poor people already. Goodness!That's horrible to wish.

I don't wish to see devastation either. Irma is currently tied for second in wind speed. 12th in pressure.
It's a very bad looking hurricane. I do hope preparations for safety have been made.

Can we retire the phrase "fake news" along with other stupid clichés such as "let's do lunch" and "who let the dogs out?" and "YOLA"?

Walter, hope you didn't forget about batteries?

There. Fake news is gone. Post is simplified. What is "YOLA"?

He didn't mean it that way, Irma passing right next to Cuba means it will be a bit less strong when hitting Florida. (because of relief interaction with Cuba)

Jesus! I knew it was bad but I had no idea it was of historic proportions. You and your family stay safe out there! Hopefully it'll weaken as you said. Sending thoughts to all forum members in Florida and the surrounding areas.

My cousins are in Hollywood (Sunrise) about 20 miles dead north of Miami.  Great beach.  They rode out Andrew in their condo. A 24 hour guarded community, that you must go through security to get in.  The building was shaking and they were in their closets.  i am hoping they got out.  They were on a Carribean Cruise a few days back but that is long done I am sure. They are from here but moved to Florida in the early 70s.  They are saying this one is stronger than Andrew but its likely still too soon to know?  Does anyone know predicted time of landfall?  I am seeing conflicting reports

^^^Early Sunday morning from everything I have read and seen.

This is like those horror movies where the haunted house is literally screaming "Get the fuck out!" Mother Nature is telling the people of Florida to get out!

Don't be like those silly people in the movie who ignore everything and stay. Paul, Chuck, everyone else...flee to safety!

Except for those douchebags who are price-gouging...I hope they get destroyed. Like the people going in to Costco and buying up the water so they can sell it for twice as much outside. It's that type of thinking that is ruining this country. They need to die.

Obviously, but that's how it goes with some thirsty folks. ✌🏻

Actually one of the last preparation trips was for something like that. Ready for many days of loss of power, etc.  You're the best!

Thank you. Everyone has had fair notice and the governor, whom I have no love loss for, has done a great job with communicating information and acting in the best interest of the citizens.  Kudos to him.  South Florida is really gonna get smacked. :(

The highways heading north have been jam packed since Tuesday here.  Good for them in south Florida and the keys.  The governor suspended tolls on all roads since Tuesday and they've been getting all cars abandoned on the highway towed away to prevent slow downs. Great job by DOT and Gov Scott!

Florida Bay (south of the Everglades) is where the last track I've seen.  But it's been shifty to say the least.  Hope your family is safe and sound.  South Florida is the last place I'd want to be.  Many have come up to Orlando, but we're gonna get hit a bit too.

Walter, hope you and your family stay safe! 

Paul, if you're reading this, stay safe, man! 

Thank you Kiwi!  I've been thinking about Paul too.  Jacksonville is a little off the east side of the last cone, but it has been moving a lot and east side is the worst. Anyone on the coast should move inland by at least 30 miles.

We're gonna be safe, my man. The levels this house has been held to have been impressive and now (hopefully) we'll see how it holds up to the winds.  We have a good little community already in this new neighborhood.  We're meeting for pre-hurricane drinks and planning tomorrow early evening.  A good mix of professionals and parents, so we've been helping each other prepare.  They eye is supposed to come near here as opposed to the coast and the Everglades aren't going to slow it as much as we would hope.  We're ready. 

Agin thank you for all the PM's and responses.  I'll give updates. It's all good! ✌🏻

Looks like it may go back to a cat 5 as it slams into the keys.  

These are some strange days. The northwest  of America is burning,  unprecedented hurricanes, Mexico is hit with the largest earthquake in a over 100 years. Strange days indeed.
