Holy cow, great pictures! Most of those would really make me head for the hills. Did you take all of those. If so, you are one brave person.

Well, maybe the Pensacola area that had all the rain a couple of weeks ago might be spared from this flood.

No I didn't take these myself they were all posted elsewhere by friends and family in the area. My camera is Japanese and thus hates me, I seem to have some problem dealing with electronics from Japan. Weird stuff happens and it wont behave for me. Everyone thinks I am making it up untill they see it themselves and then it's all "DONT TOUCH IT!"

I saw a tweet by Jim Cantore with the Weather Channel that had an interesting observation.

In a little more than 24 hours Debby's track has changed 180 degrees

twitter.com

The tweet links out to a NOAA animation of the change in Debby's projected path. You can view that at nhc.noaa.gov. Pretty interesting.

Hope everyone is safe!

I'm in the Tampa Bay area as well, southern shores. I'm surprised we haven't gotten nearly as much rain as everyone else around us, but at least we don't have to deal with flooded roads & homes. Even the damage is nominal, mainly tossed business sign marquees. I'm also very miffed that at the moment, we're under a Tropical Storm Warning, with it sitting pretty much right on top of us, but yet, I look outside and it's sunny o.O That's not how that's supposed to go. This one does nothing predictable, that's for sure.

I feel sorry for that boat owner, that looks like it was a nice boat.

I also feel your pain on the camera issues. I bought one that was really expensive because of all the bells and whistles and can't use the dang thing. I am sure it would take beautiful pictures if I could figure it out.

Wow, kind of off subject, but does anyone live in Corpus Christi? It was a record high today at 105!

Seems like Debby is sucking the city dry of it's moisture! No pun intended.

Maybe.

Corpus Christi record heat!

I don't live in Corpus Christi, but it is steaming hot everywhere I think. Here in TN, I had to go buy a window a/c unit just to keep up with the heat. My poor little hvac was just over worked.

I'm in the Tampa Bay area. I head across the Howard Frankland Bridge each day, to and from work. Yesterday, and this morning, the water is often spilling over the seawall, and coming between the gaps in the concrete barriers. I'm actually surprised it's still open. They did shut it down last night. Luckily, I guessed that would happen, and worked from home yesterday. If not, I'd have been stranded in St. Pete.

Trying to be at the office today, so hopefully I don't get trapped tonight. Another co-worker is on a small island (Snell Isle), and she's completely flooded in. That area is bad for it, but this is worse than I've seen it there...and all from a relatively minor storm. It's just that it's dumping SO much rain, and nowhere for it to go.

Weird too, an hour ago, it was sheets of rain. Now, all sunshine. Two hours from now, probably another downpour. The wind is the real trick with driving (and road debris like small branches, palm fronds, etc.). Had to clean out my driveway last night, so I could get out this morning. At least I've got a big truck to handle any rising water.

2 and 1/2 days without power. Wish I could thank the power guys who came in from out of state to restore my electric.

Although this storm has moved on there has not been flooding in Live Oak, Florida like this since 1940`s.
The court house in Live Oak also appears to be in big trouble due to there is a sink hole under it. They figured there was a sink hole due to the water had disappeared and drained.
There are many sink holes in the area now.

Here is a video of the town up the road. Lucky for us we live on a high area it seems but we can`t get to like Wal-mart or Live Oak ourselves yet. Watch this to see what is floating at the very end as well.



Now there was a lady that was needing help and said that her goats had drowned and they where trapped needing help with anyone with a boat.

I would say this is nowhere near the end of clean-up and helping people. I have been following the Colorado wildfire thread and between both of these disasters the American population is taking a pretty big hit. Prayers to those that are suffering from Mother Natures wrath.
