Didn't find anything in the search. So..

And so it begins another hurricane season. This one actually snuck up on me pretty fast. Just waking up to some decent gusts of winds. My girl got the call last night she would be staying the night at the hospital she works at all weekend due to lockdown regulations.

Just wanted to put up a post to keep others updated. www.nhc.noaa.gov...
Is the best site to stay informed. And of course I live in the area of Florida that will get the worst.

Please expect some decent flooding and winds, don't forget to clean your yard up, as I'm going to do right now. I'll come back and update when I'm done. Stay safe

I am right where it is supposed to make landfall in New Smyrna Beach, FL. I am not doing anything. I have enough food, and charcoal if we lose power, but from the models it doesn't look to be much stronger than the 50mph afternoon thunderstorms we've been having anyways, so not too concerned. Not boarding up or anything. Will just put the lawn furniture that can blow away in the pool so to not create missiles for my neighbors to dodge.

It'll hit us here in NJ Tuesday noon. Not sure if it will regain strength before that. Just the rain will turn everything into a mess. Maybe I should get ready my camera.

I'm on the treasure coast less than 1 mile inland, but just did the same. Not putting shutters up, I just brought my charcoal inside and cleaned the yard up a bit. Just like what you said anything that can fly or be a projectile. Been here since 91 been through them all. Only concerned about flooding in my area

36 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of
tropical-storm-force winds, conditions that make outside
preparations difficult or dangerous. Preparations to protect life
and property should be rushed to completion.

A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are possible
within the watch area. A watch is typically issued 48 hours
before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force
winds, conditions that make outside preparations difficult or
dangerous.

A Storm Surge Watch means there is a possibility of life-
threatening inundation, from rising water moving inland from the
coastline, in the indicated locations during the next 48 hours.
For a depiction of areas at risk, please see the National Weather
Service Storm Surge Watch/Warning Graphic, available at
hurricanes.gov.

A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are
expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours.

A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are
possible within the watch area, generally within 48 hours.

For storm information specific to your area in the United States,
including possible inland watches and warnings, please monitor
products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast
office. For storm information specific to your area outside of the
United States, please monitor products issued by your national
meteorological service.


DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 800 AM EDT (1200 UTC), the center of Hurricane Isaias was located
by NOAA and Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft and Bahamas
radar near latitude 24.3 North, longitude 77.5 West. Isaias is
moving toward the northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h). A general
northwestward motion with some decrease in forward speed is expected
for the next day or so, followed by a turn toward the
north-northwest by late Sunday. On the forecast track, the center
of Isaias will move near or over Andros Island in the Northwestern
Bahamas this morning and continue to move near or over the rest of
Northwestern Bahamas later today, and move near the east coast of
the Florida peninsula tonight through Sunday.

Reports from the reconnaissance aircraft indicate that maximum
sustained winds remain near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher gusts.
Little change in strength is expected through Sunday, and and
Isaias is forecast to remain a hurricane during this time.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175
miles (280 km).

The minimum central pressure recently measured by the aircraft was
987 mb (29.15 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for Isaias can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT4, WMO header WTNT44 KNHC, and
on the web at www.hurricanes.gov/text/MIATCDAT4.shtml.

STORM SURGE: The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the
tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by
rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water could
reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated
areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Jupiter Inlet to Ponte Vedra Beach FL...2-4 ft
North Miami Beach to Jupiter Inlet FL...1-3 ft

The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to
the right of the center, where the surge will be accompanied by
large waves. Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing
of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short
distances. For information specific to your area, please see
products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast
office.

A dangerous storm surge will raise water levels by as much as
3 to 5 feet above normal tide levels in areas of onshore winds in
the Northwestern Bahamas.

WIND: Hurricane conditions will continue to spread over the
Northwestern Bahamas later today.

Hurricane conditions are expected to reach the coast within the
hurricane warning area in Florida tonight and will spread northward
through Sunday. Winds are expected to first reach tropical storm
strength later today, making outside preparations difficult or
dangerous. Preparations to protect life and property should be
rushed to completion. Tropical storm conditions are expected
within the tropical storm warning area, and are possible within the
watch area, over southern Florida by this afternoon or evening.

RAINFALL: Isaias is expected to produce the following rain
accumulations:

Bahamas: 4 to 8 inches.

Cuba: 1 to 2 inches, with isolated maximum totals of 4 inches.

These rainfall amounts could lead to life-threatening flash and
urban flooding, especially in low-lying and poorly drained areas.

From Friday night through Tuesday:

South Florida into east-Central Florida: 2 to 4 inches, with
isolated maximum totals of 6 inches.

Northeast Florida into coastal Georgia: 1 to 2 inches.

Carolinas into the mid Atlantic, including the southern and central
Appalachians: 2 to 4 inches, with isolated maximum totals of 6
inches.

Heavy rainfall from Isaias could result in potentially
life-threatening flash and urban flooding, especially in low-lying
and poorly drained areas. Minor river flooding is possible across
portions of the Carolinas and into Virginia.

SURF: Swells generated by Isaias are affecting portions of
Hispaniola, eastern Cuba, the Turks and Caicos, and the southeastern
and central Bahamas. These swells will spread along the east coast
of Florida and the southeastern United States coast today. These
swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.

Good luck to you, though you probably won't need it. Most fire stations have sand and bags if you need them.

I am 2 blocks from the ocean, 2 blocks from the inter-coastal. House has been here since the early 60's on the highest lot in the neighborhood. I haven't had anything to worry about, and don't think this will be any different. We don't see much flooding as it all goes into the ocean, or river. Any damage here is by wind, trees falling, and the aforementioned missiles.

Nooa is fake news. Do not shelter in place or take precautions, it’s another hoax by the commie dems... wait for the real path of the storm to be shown by president trump, then decide whether or not to take safety measures.

Trump’s storm path is the real one, and like the lives he saved with the real drawing a year and half ago in the highest most trustworthy office in the land.

Do Not listen to noaa trump voters. Exercise your rights!!

Hopefully the storm stays off the coast and heads north into the atlantic. I'm seeing a lot of wind right now in Miami. We are getting some bad weather heading our way now.

All is pretty cool and calm in the West Palm area. A little wind, but nothing big. I have gotten warnings from the VA and from my job, but I think it will be fine.

I really hope no one takes you seriously, deflating current weather warnings to take a stab at someone. You just sunk to the person you hate level. You shouldn't be doing this and neither should trump.

But this is just a lol to you.

No power for 6 weeks No water for 3 weeks No cash you were out of luck . The very few places that survived use generators .
They STOPPED telling us the numbers of dead at 300 but I would hazzered to guess 75 % of any who sat it out in mexico beach died . 20 % in panama city the real death count would have been 1000s .

Panama city and panama city beach are doomed foist that now the virus that town Survived on tourist .
It will never recover city conucle is bussie stealing the recovery money doesn't help .
But the good news Is there county jail for profit is shut down .

a county jail taht max at 1000 with 16000 going through every year .

Wrath of god for sure he finly got tired of the corruption .
feel bad for the people but wont miss the town or Florida . Florida IS a CA wanna be .
