Weather Conditions in Fl, USA
#1
I know there a lot of people from around the world and each has their own weather issues from time to time.

I figured I'd give an update of what's going on here.
I live in North Central Fl, near Gainesville. There are some members near Melbourne, and some near Tampa all over the state. 

We currently have Hurricane Irma going to make landfall soon on the state between Tampa and the tip of Florida (Naples). It'll be a category 4 when it makes landfall, and will only slow down to about a low cat 3 by the time it gets to central Fl.
Unfortunately, it has moved westward and basically the whole state will be in the forward right quadrant which is where tornados and high wind gusts (excess of 100-120mph) occur. 

I hope all that can evacuate have done so. Especially those in southern florida and along the coast line. There is going to be storm surges to as much as 2 feet. 

Anyone who can't evacuate, please make sure you have things in order and not just be like "Eh, this is gonna be no biggie". I was thinking that yesterday as it was going to be more eastward. But, now that it's moved westward, it'll be far worse than it was going to be before.

Irma made landfall at Naples, Fl a few hours ago. It was a category 4 of about 135mph winds. Now, it's sped up from 12mph to 14mph headed northward. It has also slowed down rotation to a cat2 with 110mph winds. So far as I can tell from the Weather Channel, there hasn't been hardly any tornados, which is very thankful. We are still in a tornado watch for the next 12hrs or so, but at least so far nothing dangerous has been reported that I have noticed.
There's a large dry front pushing into it as well, which is helping to kill the rainfall on the backside of the storm. So we'll only be getting rain on the front, which is great as we've already had a lot of rain over the past couple months and our aquifers are pretty full, and the soil is no longer as porous as it was 4 months ago (when we were in a medium drought).
It's nice that it's dyeing down since it came on land and didn't ride the west coast and keep itself charged with the warm gulf waters.
Where I live, we still have about another 12-16hrs to go before we're in the clear.

So, here's the current deal. In our area we've lost power and will probably be out for almost another week. Some people in the area of already got power like Gainesville but I live out in the country area and we have multiple poles that have been broke and multiple lines that have been snapped. I know there's a lot of other people out there who probably will be longer and I hope you guys are able to take care and be able to get things going. I currently can only get online by using my phone as my computer is not working and our internet at the house is down.

Fortunately, the fatality rate is only 31 last I heard and that is including all of the things that have been included from Keys all the way up through South Georgia. For a storm that's as damaging as this one was that's a really good low number as some weaker storms have caused much more deaths. We can pretty much atest this to people actually evacuating when they recognize how damaging this storm was going to be. The latest was a couple within the last couple days as they were actually traveling back down south. There are people who are not obeying the four-way stop when there is no power to traffic lights and they were T-boned at the intersection as they were progressing through.

Gas flow is finally starting to stabilize in our area I'm not quite sure how it is further down south; I know in Ocala they are still slightly short on fuel and I'm sure even the further down near Tampa is even worse. Things are slowly getting back to somewhat normalcy.

Yeah Monday before the storm completely passed even in some of the little bit of rain the neighbors were all out starting to cut the trees up that landed across the road. At least out in the country most of everybody out there has a big truck a 4 by 4 or a chainsaw or a tractor Smile

So there was a lot of people helping a lot of people that out in my area. Too bad none of them knew how to put power lines back up Wink

Jdeadman: glad your aunt was able to get out okay

We didn't get a whole lot of damage on our property, but there are several people who ended up having trees land either on their house or land just in front of their house where they look out the window and all they see is tree limbs
Fortunately, just down the street they already have power. So hopefully we'll have power within the next day or two. I haven't looked at the line that comes from the other direction which is where our power comes from the neighboring City, so I don't know how much damage is done up the line on that end.

One thing's for certain though, I'll have some stuff in place using these lithium's so I won't be out of power for as long as I am this time. I'm going to send a couple of pictures probably tomorrow with a couple of quick-thinking use what you have at your disposal configurations to get things working. It's quite comical with some of the stuff I have set up
