It's a category 5 now, threatening Jamaica and Cuba

Looks like the Cat5 designation was short lived.
Back to a Cat4...but I have read that these strong storms can wax and wane as they move forward.

Yes down to verry powerful cat 4 now with sustained winds of 155 mph. (Cat 5 is 157mph)
Its projected to hit Jamaica on Monday at a strength of Category 3.

Still the most powerful in a decade

Yeah, you just knew that the lack of big storms in the Caribbean couldn't last forever.
Especially with the warm surface temperatures of the water.

Anyone still following this storm? If so any input about the blob to the right of the storm? Strange.

I'm still following it because I'm in the Florida Keys .....and am worried it will wobble west to me.....what blob are you talking about ?

From my (limited) knowledge (that I got from being on the wrong side of Hermine), the right upper quadrant is usually the strongest part I think. I thought it looked weird on the radar also.

Yes, the right side is the worst side and upper quadrant has most water and storm surge ...a reply to: ValentineWiggin

Life and death situation in Haiti for those that couldn't make it to the bus stations.
MSM has a media blackout.

Wow, media blackouts sure have changed

My personal interest in hurricanes has indeed waned -- I don't live in FL anymore, and this one isn't setting it's sights on the Gulf Coast where I lived for most of my life. But to try to say there's a media blackout is bulls#. I didn't have to type but 2 words & hit "enter" to find a massive return of news stories on it.

12 hours no posts.
It may be another day before they can get ATV's out the peninsula for the body count.

During the night the Storm has shifted left alittle bit more .....it's still a beast of a storm and now its sights are on Bahamas and coast of Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina ......lets hope it doesn't shift anymore...and that everyone in Haiti and Cuba are alive and safe

So here I am...again....staring down the barrel of a forty five...
Living in south east Virginia it happens.
It's been a very hot Sept. Warmer than Sept usually is even for here . I was swimming last week in the bay. I usually wont get in after labor day because the water is too cool. So the water was warm enough last week and there's Matthew . The water temp in the gulf stream has got to be a few degrees warmer than usual for this time of year too. I hope this storm starts losing some of its height soon because I don't think the water it's headed into is as cool as it usually should be this time of year.
I don't know if they measure surface temps of the water while they try to predict future strength of a storm.

A strong category one is the worst I've ever experienced though Floyd was a cat three on approach. That one I'd call a 1.7 almost a 2. When it got here. We had nineteen inches of rain.
Isabel was also a strong cat one. She came after a very wet summer. Ground saturation caused many trees to pull up right out of the ground taking power lines out from north Carolina all the way to Deleware. I could see the milky way at night it was so dark.

So Matthew please go away.

I'm in lower Florida keys ....last night about 11 pm ,it was dead hot air ....this morning around 5 am, there was a cool steady breeze . Oddly cold breeze from the North, and I assume it's the rotation of the storm pulling the northern air down ? ...right now it's 9 am and a few clouds, sort of breezy, 83 degree sun is shinning ....so far .....

If it sticks to the projected path, aren't too many places in FL that won't get at least TS level winds, if not Hurricane ones. At least it's slowed up some strength wise, but still a Cat 3 last I checked.

Pretty much kills my weekend plans (that start on Fri), as I have no desire to be driving to Orlando in hurricane force winds....

Luckily, we're already preppers, so we just pick up some last minute stuff...and I gassed up the truck fully this morning. Backup water and food is no worry, same with powerless lights and cooking, etc.

Completely screws my weekend plans. Was going to a convention in Orlando, but I'm not driving through hurricane force winds to get there.

My sister and my sister in law both have winter homes there.
They are both up north still. They usually go down in November. My sister has a caretaker looking after the property.
I'm not sure if my sister in law does too. She is in a gated community and has year rounders take care f the gardening clean up and stuff. They have hurricane shutters and it's a new house so hurricane ready.

Good luck. Are you staying?

Dennis did that here back in the nineties I think. Passed off the coast and gave us a tree cleaner then headed east and then south then came back around and rolled right over us. It was only a weak cat one but it spawned a few tornados .

Im on Cudjoe ....we just got a quick rain shower ..I can hear the thunder booming off in the distance. Radar shows the storm leaving Cuba now....and will begin to be parallel to us about 9 pm tonight....and yeah I saw the prediction for it to curl back down south...that's not giving me the warm and fuzzier either !!! a reply to: speeddr2000
