You're not coming off that way. You can disagree, I just happen to think you're wrong about that, but honestly it's somewhat counter-productive to be petty arguing it here.

Tampa will likely be spared from major surge with the storm going more east. They will miss the strong southwest winds that would pile the water into the bay.

I am doing ok in Saint Augustine, downtown was flooded earlier, have not ventured out to check on things since this afternoon.

I am riding it out on my boat in a hurricane hole. Transformers are starting blow out everywhere. I have enough of a battery bank to keep my cell phone charged and my lights on. It is gusting over 60mph at the NWS station and we are over 200miles from the center.

I just came back from clearing some huge tree branches off of Himes as well as MLK going towards the Hospital in front of Bucs training camp. Picked up some homeless folks getting their arse kicked and dropped them off at the parking garage next to St. Josephs. They are alot more relaxed now. One of the fellas is clearly pretty much mostly gone on the head already, but there still enough of him left to promise to pay me something. I can't understand why he thinks I was doing this for money. I just told him he can pay me by staying dry and safe, and left them with two bags of canned goods.

I went ahead and drove up to the ninth floor and enjoyed the view. Here it is for anybody that is interested.


Theres a tree down blocking one of the main neighborhood roads, good thing there are two routes around it. Hopefully it will be clear enough tomorrow for me to cut it up with the chainsaw. Unfortunately that means the one at my house must have dropped by now. I will check on it later tonight.

Two manatees stranded when water was sucked out of bays and waterways by Irma, were rescued in Manatee County.

Waste of flesh cowards..

As of if it's not challenging enough for people in Fla you have dumb criminals doing things like this..

Sadly so many clips out there showing people looting sneakers during the storm..

That dry air is going to get entrained in Irma and take a lot of steam out of the storm in the next few days.
Still doing damage though.

..IRMA PRODUCING HURRICANE-FORCE WINDS ACROSS PORTIONS OF CENTRAL FLORIDA

As of 1100 PM EDT Sun Sep 10 (Advisory # 48)
Saffir-Simpson Wind Scale: Category 2
Maximum Sustained Winds: 85 knots; 100 mph
Minimum Central Pressure: 952 mb
Located at: 27.5N 81.9W
Movement: north at 12 knots; 14 mph

Discussion
Due to its recent more inland push, Irma's center is now
forecast to remain over Florida and then move over the southeastern
United States for the duration of its existence. Due to continued
land interaction and strong shear of over 30 kt, Irma should
continue to lose strength and fall below hurricane intensity
on Monday. The cyclone is then expected to become a remnant low
over western Tennessee by day 3 and dissipate by day 4.

Those guys should just stick their arms out of the car, if they want to clock the wind speed. The danger of getting knocked unconscious by debris is quite high...unless they were on a beach, maybe.
