As someone who has lost part of their house to a hurricane in the panhandle of FL, I follow these things when they are heading where my family is located.

Hopefully it won't grow to big before it gets there.


The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday morning that Debby was about 190 miles (310 km) east-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River. It said the storm warning has now been issued from the Mississippi-Alabama border eastward to the Suwanee River in north Florida.


I do miss this part of the storm.


Thousands of people were on the beach at Pensacola Beach, Fla., on Sunday morning. Many used their phones to take photos of huge waves crashing into the concrete supports of a fishing pier. There wasn't any rain yet; just gusty winds and dark, fast-moving clouds.


Interesting fact for the day


It was the first time four tropical storms have been recorded before July 1 during the Atlantic hurricane season since record keeping began in 1851. Alberto was the first storm this year. It formed off the South Carolina coast on May 19, almost two weeks before the hurricane season officially began June 1.

I'm in Clearwater and right now the river that runs by me is almost completely flooded. It looks like the lake on our golf course will be connecting to the river soon.

For us, it's been raining since almost 8PM last night so if this continues and we don't get any type of really high winds we will at least get some flooding. Thanks for this post, I was just about to make a topic.

Hey neighbor! Pinellas Park is underwater as usual. Guess thats what happens when you build on a swamp. They should have used a few more feet of back fill.Just heard theres a possible tornado in Myakka City. I'll take the rain over fires any day. Wonder if this will end the water restrictions?

I'm up north of the Port Richey area. Yeah, rain, rain, rain, and more of the same for tomorrow. We didn't get this much rain when those hurricanes came thru a few years ago. I don't know about flooding. My son went out to pick up something to eat, so I guess I'll get a report when he gets back.

The rain gage is full - 5" since I emptied it yesterday evening.

My aunt and cousins have homes in Lake Placid Florida. Central just south of Sebring and Orlando. Roof off homes and wide spread power outages. Their homes survived, but many neighbors sustained lots of damage. That is also south of The Villages as well. This is not over yet.

I do not think we will see anything close to hurricane strength with this storm. Expect localized flooding, some heavy winds and rain and that's about it.

What has been pretty impressive with this storm and something for all us amateur storm watchers to pay attention to is the forecast models. All of them for the exception of 1, has been dead wrong.

As of 9pm local time yesterday, the majority of forecast models actually had this storm heading directly West and making landfall in Texas. This storm now appears to me heading directly North into the Florida Panhandle. It is being reported that it ism moving at 3mph, which is very slow and depending on how much rain it is dumping out, where this makes landfall is almost certain to see flooding.

Sure would be nice if this thing would come up into indiana and just stop for about seven days. We're suffering a severe drought and watching florida get all that rain makes me jealous.

So the lake/pond ended up connecting with the river which flooded our entire rode up to almost 6 feet. I had to go out and pull people out of their cars because they thought their cars were boats.


I'll post some pictures up later on once I get dry and relax for a bit.
