It still hasn't undergone an eye replacement cycle yet, has it?


Not that I've heard.

Just saw this posted on Facebook...converted to YouTube in order to post.

This was taken while the eye was over them, they still have the whole back half of this monster storm to endure. Prayers they make it through.

Personally, intuition being what it is for growing up in FL myself, I say this one's going to hug the coast and not actually make landfall there, with the HF wind wall just offshore. Bahamas are going to get the bulk of the whipping, obviously.

I also could be wrong. I hunkered down for Charley thinking "Huh, this'll be interesting" in Tampa, and was totally not expecting the right hook into Punta Gorda he did back then (nobody expected that except ONE local meteorologist who didn't back off the prediction)


Edit: Clicky here for the current blog on WU. It's a good central location for all kinds of meteorology goodies for the hurricane, as well as any images from locations in the path. New blogs are linked in at the top of the comments section, it's not hard to spot.


LMAO, I was just north of you at that time as well. Looking back we were probably really dumb for waiting to see if Charlie would run up Tampa Bay. That would have been a devastating hit with massive storm surge.

Still in Florida hoping it turns, if not I have my work cut out for me boarding up the house and getting the kids out of here.

Steve Gervy was the man with his Viper radar that day. Call of the century. He made them all look like fools that day and likely saved many lives in the process. My Grandmother in Orlando was able to get to a shelter for starters.

Dorian has stalled over Grand Bahama all morning. This an unfathomable catastrophe in the making. While the storm has weakened slightly, 165mph sustained winds with 200mph gusts, it is still a category 5 hurricane.

Dorian is supposed to begin a weakening trend today followed by a gradual turn to the north, then accelerating to the northeast by Wednesday.

It appears the chances of a direct hit are diminishing for Florida, however Dorian remains a major threat to the rest of the Southeast US coastline.

Even without a direct Dorian can still bring hurricane force winds and storm surge flooding to Florida and the rest of the SE coastline.

My parents in Cocoa Beach are expecting a call from me this morning, and my advice to stay or go. They are under a mandatory evacuation, however we are Floridians and only run when absolutely necessary.

I’m an hour north of Cocoa Beach in Volusia county. I saw we will get winds of 75-110! This will be my 8th hurricane. Honestly they’re annoying lol I feel like I’ve lost a week of my life waiting for this thing to get here. We are going to a friends who has a generator and doesn’t live under dozens of 150 year old oak trees! I live in an oak canopy. The storms of 2016/2017 cleared most of them out but the winds weren’t as strong as they say they will be for this one. Soooo im not staying! I’ll move my car to the plaza by my house which is where most people on my street park their cars. It’s open and no trees. This is just going to suck because I know I’ll have no power and no idea for how long at my place. I lost my job two weeks ago so I’m even more stressed as it will take longer to get one with this sucker hitting here. Fun times...

Key messages and updated forecast track, aka the cone of uncertainty.



Key Messages:

1. A prolonged period of catastrophic winds and storm surge will
continue to affect Grand Bahama Island through today and tonight.
Everyone there should remain in shelter and not venture into the
eye.

2. Life-threatening storm surges and dangerous hurricane-force winds
are expected along portions of the Florida east coast through
mid-week, and storm surge and hurricane warnings are in effect. Only
a slight deviation to the left of the official forecast would bring
the core of Dorian near or over the Florida east coast. Residents
should listen to advice given by local emergency officials.

3. There is an increasing likelihood of strong winds and dangerous
storm surge along the coasts of Georgia, South Carolina, and North
Carolina later this week. Residents in these areas should continue
to monitor the progress of Dorian and listen to advice given by
local emergency officials.

4. Heavy rains, capable of producing life-threatening flash floods,
are expected over northern portions of the Bahamas and coastal
sections of the Southeast and lower Mid-Atlantic regions of the
United States into Friday.

I'm providing a link to the Storm2k forums. The forum is loaded with professional meteorologists, the latest computer models, hurricane recon, and storm position.

Generally linking other forums is not allowed on here, but given this is a life threatening event and potentially life and property saving information Is provided there, exceptions can be made.

Hey fellow Floridian. We are boarded and stocked here in NSB, ready to ride this thing out tomorrow. Power is the worst part. Last one (Matthew I believe) we were without power for 12 days, while the rest of my neighborhood had power on day 1. Hoping for the best with this one. Good luck to you!

I cannot fathom what it must be like for those poor souls in the Bahamas right now.

Around here, we call an F-5 tornado the "Finger of God." It simply erases whatever it touches: homes, neighborhoods, sometimes entire towns. There is a small town not very far from me that used to be the county seat, until an F-5 came through one night. The town still exists, but only as a "wide spot in the road." The devastation was so bad, the county seat was relocated.

A hurricane spawns these monsters. It is the mother of tornadoes. That's a whole 'nother level of destruction.

As I understand it, the Bahamas is now under several feet of water... the whole damn island is under several feet of rushing water driven by those crazy-powerful winds! Once this monster leaves, I imagine we will see pictures and video of devastation on a scale few of us can really imagine. The death toll has to be massive... I don't see how anyone could survive this. Freeport may not even exist any more.

I've been to Freeport. I can't imagine much being left. Some areas have been experiencing cat 5 conditions for close to 8 hours. That is like a F3 tornado....for 8 hours!

Absolute worst case scenario I have ever seen in a hurricane.

Florida is not out of the woods yet either.

Never been there myself... my timing sucks. My first glimpse of New York City was early 2002, just a few months after the Trade Towers fell. If my luck holds, I'll soon get to see where Freeport once stood.

If I could think of a worse situation a hurricane could cause, I might argue with you. But I can't, so I won't.

Stay safe Florida... and the rest of the coast. This is far, far, far from over.

Cuba is pretty far south of the storm.

Yes, it was forecast to do that yesterday, for upwards of 24 hours before turning north.

No it isn't. Knock off the misinformation, Cuba is too far south for any direct impact. No atmospheric steering will send it close to Cuba. Florida, yes, Eastern Seaboard, yes. Cuba, NO.
