From my mom (Grandma's daughter)....
"I talked to her this morning. She claims she CAN'T get out. Freeways are a mess already, no flights to anywhere left, no hotel rooms anywhere. She says there is no place to go. I can believe it is pandemonium down there with people on the east coast trying to get somewhere else safe. She said she has a couple staying with her and she's getting a generator today. All we can do is pray at this point."

At least she has some friends this time

I expected it to be like that. I insisted my Mom leave Vero Beach last night and drive up to our home in Jax.

She did, thank god.

Hope your Grandma remains safe. Sebring appears to be in the path.

Here are some of the links I'm using to track this monster....

The NOAA predicted path charts...

I actually have the NOAA National Hurricane Center (Atlantic) as an RSS feed dumping all the latest into my account. Makes it a bit easier to stay current.

Quick snapshot of the US precipitation...

The GEOS satallite....
Click on "loop 12" to view a 1.3meg animation of shots.

Warning and Advisorys, colorful and county clickable...

Weather Underground has tons of good stuff, especially this color satallite - zoomable map....
....and a quick map of hot spots...

Some cams...

Thats it.

She said she has a couple staying with her and she's getting a generator today.

Make sure she knows to use it outside...AFTER the storm...or she could get CO2 poisoning!!!

I talked to my brother about 1pm EDT. He is in Brevard County. He was driving on I-95 from highway 192 north and it took him 30 minutes to get to the Wickham Rd. Exit. A 5 minute drive normally. He was on the Bee Line (I think Bee Line) heading west now and it was bumper to bumper, stop and go traffic again. I wonder how many people will simply run out of gas before making it to safety?

Where's he going exactly?

the middle of the state is going to get spanked too.

He is looking to go to I-75 and take it north to Atlanta.

San Salvador should be in the eye at this point.

The newest groundtrack has Frances hitting the eastern Floridian coast RIGHT AT KENNEDY SPACE CENTER...

MOTHER OF PETE! There's no way the VAB can hold up to this!!!!

Latest track I saw had it going to Palm Beach...

All the schools are closed tomorrow even here, so they can be used as shelters...

For my fellow Floridians, there's a Hurricane Tips thread in the Science and Technology forum.....

AS of now Im heading towards the keys, its looking better for South Florida and I want to be south of the storm.

posted on Sep, 2 2004 @ 04:20 PM
That may not be the best idea jrod. I'm expecting (maybe wrongfully so) that I-95 will be turned into a one way road. Plus there are hints the storm may hit south Florida. Looking at the satellite loop it looks as if the storm has taken quite a large jog to the northwest. Its a little hard to tell because the is isn't in the greatest shape and seems to be trying to reorganize. This job and the eye replacement may cause forecasting problems. But where do you go? Gas is hard to find. Lodging is just as bad. And the roads are a nightmare.

Man I must be getting tired. I didn't even catch in the 5pm advisory that the storm is now moving northwest. So it was more than just a jog in the loop. Its the new trend in movement. If the trend continues it will not move into south florida. This track will reemphasize its threat on the Space Coast.
