Looks like the fingers of God, when there is a big area of heavy rain.

Starting to recieve 50mph winds here on the island, it's pretty hard to get out to take video, but if anything serious happens I'll be sure to do my best to get it on tape. Storm has started to develop a double eye-wall which may mean two bands of extreme winds, from two directions as it passes and leaves. (From the west northwest on approach and east southeast as it recedes.) Had a tree about 100 yards away bite the dust already.

Satellite and aircraft fixes show that Matthew is still moving
toward the northwest or 325 degrees at 11 kt. The steering flow has
not changed, and Matthew should continue to move around the western
periphery of the subtropical ridge located over the western Atlantic
during the next 24 to 36 hours. This portion of the NHC forecast is
very close to the multi-model consensus. After that time, the
hurricane will become embedded within the mid-latitude westerlies
and should turn sharply eastward for a day or so.

Forecast positions and Max winds

Init 06/2100z 26.2n 78.6w 120 kt 140 mph

Why is it that young ones
are so unwilling to take advice?

I don't know what your beliefs are,
but I had a great aunt who told me
that I could ask my guardian angel
to watch over people.

So ever since, whenever someone I know
is traveling, ill, or having surgery,
I ask my GA to wrap his/her wings
around them & keep them safe.
Don't know if it's true, I hope it is!
But it couldn't hurt & it makes me feel better!

Whenever I have something that is worrying me,
I try to put it in God's hands & let it go.
Who better to deal with it? Lol!
And I have had some amazing results!

Praying that the 'party' stays safe,
but is shook up just enough, that they don't
ever want to try something like this again!
Mom of 5 here, been there, done that!

It sounds like they just said, that
they think the eye will stay just offshore!
Sure hope so!

Hi. My sister is in Volusia County; Port Orange, just west of Ponce Inlet. I talked with her last evening when she said they were hunkering down...staying. Haven't heard from her tonight. Do you know the area? I'm quite worried about her. Can storm surge get that far inland?

Thanks in advance for any info.

I'm all for not sugar-coating the situation, but that was over the top. Sheesh.

Here's a recent satellite image. What a monster storm! Gusts to 160 mph.

Maybe Shepard Smith is frustrated because he has friends or relatives who've decided to ride it out?

Here in the Midwest USA, we have "storm chasers" who drive into Tornadoes and stream live broadcasts. Are there storm chasers on the East Coast of Florida tonight?

We were on vacation in Charleston when the evacuation order came on Tuesday afternoon. The hotel informed us that they would be closing at 11 AM on Wednesday. We hit the road at 10 AM on Wednesday amid the first wave of outbound. It took us nine long hours to get to Asheville, NC. We usually do it in 5 hours.
Most of the folks we spoke with in Charleston were staying, hoping for the best. (Some may have changed their minds by now I'm thinking, when they're seeing what is happening in FL.)
Every rest stop along the way in South Carolina was packed---but the people we encountered were relaxed for the most part because there was gas and food to be had even if we had to wait in lines for the bathrooms. People weren't mad or upset just being cautious and getting out of harm's way.
The weirdest thing we saw was the closure of I-26 at Columbia as they were getting ready to make it all outbound. I've honestly never seen so many oranges cones and cops stretched across six or eight lanes of traffic. It was eerie to drive along and see that interstate completely empty of vehicles.

Greenville, SC sent dozens of school buses to Charleston to evacuate folks who had no transportation. Likewise we saw dozens of ambulances headed to Charleston to evacuate the hospitals.

Today's drive through the mountains and back to western Kentucky was beautiful but the traffic was very heavy, even for this time of year, when we're normally traveling that route. What usually takes us about 7 hours took more than 9 hours due to the heavy traffic coming out of Asheville.
In the tavern where we had dinner in Asheville last night there were at least 8 tables of South Carolina refugees, people who had their fall vacations cut short by the storm. The staff at the tavern were really nice to us and gave us all free appetizers.

I'm really sorry our vacation was cut short but our disappointment is nothing in view of the effects on the folks where the storm is hitting and even in those areas not directly hit but having to evacuate or lose income because of the evacuations.
To all who are enduring it---my prayers and wishes are for the best possible outcome.

I was wondering the same thing when I tried to get on to see the latest. I suppose the sheer volume of traffic might have crashed it?

Here's a good link to see the latest, without the hype that TV is throwing out there.

Also, check out reports from the coastal buoys that are still operating.. Huge waves out there.

A little after 4, having sustained hurricane winds. A few more trees down, the roof is making some weird noises, but we still have power. Impossible to go take video, pretty nuts outside. As far as I can see no major damage in my immediate vicinity, and haven't heard any outrageous noises so I assume all the neighbors houses are in one piece. Not yet in the most severe part of the storm though, that should be in an hour or so, and should last about an hour.

Do not, I repeat, do not leave whatever shelter you have found, just to take videographic record of the event. Stay away from doors and windows, fall back to the room closest to the centre of your house or dwelling place, preferably to a room lacking windows, and featuring a stout door. While I can appreciate the desire to record events, this is no laughing matter, not a thing to be trifled with. If you have not evacuated to a safe distance, and if you are sheltering in your home instead, I highly recommend remaining indoors for the duration. Windblown debris of only a small weight, could become a lethal projectile in the winds that are being recorded thus far, and that is but one of the many dangers that you would face if you step outside when things are going really nuts.

Look after your safety, and be cautious.

Central Florida here as well, nothing much to speak of yet. Have seen stronger winds in NY during a snowstorm, which is not a bad thing. Still have quite a while to go though... Keep safe all
