Wow..that looked FAR worse than what we saw from the Harvey storm-chasers. I thought Harvey made island-fall at night, It was still light when that video was shot. Were the hurricane winds THAT far from the center?

106 in San Francisco,snow in September on the Australian eastern seaboard,weird mists,Houston floods,1400 forest wildfires,meteors,now perhaps prior to cellphones and social media all this stuff happened but it seems to me whoever has the joystick has ramped it up in the last month...and has a sick sense of humour.

I don't know. I think the eye went right over as a bulls eye, maybe the lower western side of the eye?
It ripped that tree to shreds!

That was scary. When you consider that those were grown trees that had been there for awhile, makes that video all the more frightening. It's no wonder that the videographer didn't stay there too long. I hope he/she is still alive!

Passing over Barbuda and Antigua
Sounds like a monster growling
Tree shredder!

No, this is a hoax video. It was dark at landfall in Barbuda, this is a tornado elsewhere in daylight. Barbuda started exiting the backside of the eye around 2 hours ago. I know the approximate exiting time because my husband and I were texting back & forth & I was watching Guadeloupe radar (Meteo France) It didn't sit there for hours and hours before it left.

I was 12 durring the infamous '95 season. Storm after storm, almost non stop swell from July to November. It was also the last time I got denied paddling out.

At least we do not have jagged reef here in Florida, our sandbars are much more forgiving. That said, there forerunners on the 20 mile buoy, we will see some SE lines from Irma tomorrow.


We are about the same age, and that was the same time period I was thinking, lol. My mom didnt like it, but I had been surfing for 6 yrs at that point, so Dad overruled, and I paddled out.

Loved dropping in on 20+ft faces. Probably not anymore as I am old and busted up from racing motorcycles.

To me it looks like GA/SC needs to be on alert. The trough is already impacting ATL. Stay safe everyone!

True. It's the living in sub standard conditions for weeks that drags a person's emotions down.
After Isabel some parts of Virginia didn't have power on until after thanksgiving. Isabel was a late August storm. I'm in a city on a main road and the longest I've gone without power has been about a week. And that was hard enough. I was on long island when Gloria plowed through in 85 I think it was and we were without power for five days. The worst is instant coffee made with water heated on the grill that always manages to taste a bit like smoke. Not good. Add powdered creamer and oh joy. Not...

What's the difference between that and Starbucks?

I have been trying to find honest and reliable footage of the areas where Irma has passed through already.

From what I can find, there has been some flooding in the areas close to the ocean, a few small trees down, but all in all the areas seemed to have fared well, considering the size and the strength of the storms.

Anyone finding anything different?

Hard to believe no one has had contact with anyone on Barbuda (that we know of so far) since about midnight. Man..... i hope they are ok.

Pics coming out of the islands this a.m. are unbelievable. I'm on my phone so can't post but they are coming on twitter and forecast sites.

One is @worldonalert

Ick, Ben T. Davis is a sewer and frequently has bacteria warnings. I only like it for the view. I will check out Manasota after the storm passes, thanks for the tips!

Oh God, I would not stick around if I were in the keys. The intercoastal highway becomes a mess when people are trying to leave. Sometimes its a mess just going in for a visit!

Hopefully Cuba will do its thing and shave it down a bit. There is an office park directly behind my parents house with several multi story garages separated from their yard by about an acre or two of the private high school's practice fields. Our plan is to simply move the cars there, then me and my brother are going to walk back to the house. My parents are ready to fly the coops on the dime and already have a rental. My wife and kids are going with them. iffin the situation looks grim. Me and bro will stay behind to protect the homes.

This one is going to be a doozy!

Harvey was the 'thousand year storm'.
Now I hear this morning that Irma is the most powerful storm in recorded history.
What will they do when the next one is even stronger?

I just check:

twitter.com... for Saint Martin

and

twitter.com... for Barbuda. There are mentions it has been completely wiped. No images or vids as of yet (and that is not a good sign)

Protect the homes from what?

You can't hold back the storm, and you can't hold the roof on or the walls together.

I am not trying to tell you what to do, but think about it. I am sure there is nothing in the homes that is worth your life or the life of your brother. If it looks like it is going to be bad, get out before it hits.

My calculations on Wilma were way off. It played out the way we all expected when Wilma first hit. No one it seems, bargained for what Wilma had on the back side.

When I looked at the mess I had around my home, I realized how blessed we where. To look at all the trees down around my home, lying in a circle, it looked like God had placed his hand over my house, forcing the trees to fall like dominoes all around it.

After that I made myself a promise. I would never place my loved ones at risk like that again. There is nothing that I own that had the power or the value, to make losing a loved one, or having a loved one badly injured, for the attempted protection of something that can be bought and sold.

That is just my experience. I know what you are thinking and feeling now, but if you lose anything, let it be something you can replace.

Harvey was 1 in a thousand year storm considering precipitation.

Irma is the most powerful storm in the Atlantic considering windforce. Only hurricane Allen in the Gulf of Mexico was stronger.
