Jose is going north mid Atlantic and won't affect anyone but the fish.

You were also adamant that Irma would turn back into the ocean and fizzle out.

I don't think you're quite the meteorologist you think you are.

Thoughts and prayers for your brother to be safe

Thank you Violet.
He texted at 3 am to say he was fine the storm had passed. His phone battery was low so I didn't ask about damage or friends (furry or human).
Hope everyone else in the path fared equally as well.

Very good to start hearing reports from that members and their family and friends survived the storm.

I hope more and more are able to post at least briefly in the coming hours and days.

Continued thoughts and prayers for things to normalize.

I just talked to my parents in Ft. Myers, and they are ok. They will be checking out of the hotel later today and heading home.

Dad said he had reports that there were many trees down, but looks like the house is intact. No power, but that is nothing as long as they are ok and they didn`t have major damage.

Thank you all for the prayers and good wishes, and we all need to continue that for all affected by the storm. Many will not be as fortunate as my parents were , and my heart aches for them.

Jose could threaten the east coast. The UKMET computer model shows another Florida strike.

It is still gusty in Saint Augustine, probably 35-40mph with 50+mph gusts. The wind will subside throughout thevday. Daytona Beach to the south of me is still getting tropical storm conditions.

It looks like all the boats in the marina I am at faired well, I can see a sailboat got demasted at a more exposed marina across the San Sebastian river from me. There is too much flooding for me to leave the marina. The next high tide is in about 3 hours, hopefully the water will not get as high this time. Last night it went over the seawall. The roads downtown are lower than the seawall....flooding was a problem yesterday afternoon, last night had to have been worse. The rain has cleared, but we easily had a foot+ rain yesterday and early this morning.
Widespread power outages, last night only 1 stoplight and the police station had lights on. It was very erie with all the darkness.

We have enough sun light already for my solar panel to push a charge, with my batteries I had enough power for lights, a laptop, charge my phone, run the bilge pump, ect...the entire time.

This was my wife's first storm, and she rode it out on a boat. We got hurricane gusts and strong tropical storm conditions. The wind is more of a nuisance, the major problem is flooding.

We have enough food and water for a weekq, well stocked on rum and vodka but only a few beers left.

I certainly hope that your prediction is accurate.
It seems as if, as of this morning anyway, Jose is going to do some whoop dee doos, circle around and who knows what.

At my brother's. We are still without power, but he has a whole house generator, so there is a/c, lights and of course TV. My sister-in-law wouldn't be able to make it too long without her TV or books on tape. But I love her.

Going to take a shower and laze out.

Thanks again.

Best of luck to you mate, but wow, on a boat??
I've been in some bad storms (lost parts of the roof, to who knows where) but nothing, I mean nothing like you guys have been copping it lately. Either way, to everyone there, from now till things are safe again, positive thoughts to all.. I'd need a load of brown pants !!

never good to run out of beer, but seems you're stocked. Solar is one thing I need to invest more in, not panels, but mobile for movement.

And I hope silly is right, that it does head elsewhere, but it was not long ago Irma was the tiny spiral on the radar away from Harvey. Complacency is not an option right now I think.

I have a good friend in Florida (she's on here also) but she's still keeping her presence visible, though I've not spoken to her in a while. She went on a road trip prior.

I'm just glad others I know are too far inland to be in any danger in the coming days.

Keep your eyes open, mother nature can be a sneaky vixen...

All that free water and my pool still isn't filled.

I walked around St. Augustine. The water receded quickly. Most places knew what to expect after Mathew last year.

There is still some water in low places. I saw 5 boats that washed ashore from their moorings.

Just another hurricane in Florida, this one just affected everone in the state east of the panhandle.

First view of Marathon from overhead. They took a beating down there, wow...

I'm just grasping at straws here. But has anyone legit sources of news about the Caribbean (St. Martin for me) about the aftermath of Irma as there are a lot of conflicting stories atm.

Had any updates from your loved ones there?

Glad to see most of you in Florida who posted in this thread made it ok.

Not good for those in the flooding further up though.

Just heard from my family a couple hours ago.

Most of the communication is down. They were finally able to call us by land-line.

Problem was on my side too, because my land-line is out, as is my electricity.

Main thing is that they are fine. They live in the mountains, so they didn't get it as bad as some.

My brother is fine, he said he still has electric in Florida. All he got was some rain and some wind. Like us. Nothing major though and he's on the gulf coast. My Aunt's phone is down.

Thanks man, that gives me some hope.

Just checking in came through it OK was a little hairy when that outer band came right up our butts and there was just some branches down and no electric since 530 yesterday.
I'm on the north side of Okeechobee and a lot of strange cars came down our road today don't know if there scouting for whatever but that's about the most unusual thing

Now for the tropical storm invading Georgia, Alabama and the Carolinas....stay safe folks!!!!

Rainbands cascading toward Irma will dump huge amounts of rain from the Florida peninsula into parts of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina over the next couple of days. Totals will be far short of the 40 – 50” that fell in southeast Texas during Hurricane Harvey, because Irma is now moving at a healthy clip, but widespread 5” -10” totals with pockets of 10 - 20” can be expected. Major river flooding is possible in coastal areas from northeast Florida to southeast South Carolina, where runoff from heavy rain will meet a persistent storm surge from onshore winds flowing toward Irma. Localized flash flooding will be a risk across the east slopes of the Southern Appalachians, as rainbands associated with Irma stream northwest into the mountainsides.

Synopsis of the storm.....including

North Perry Airport (Broward County): 109 mph
Miami International Airport (tower observation): 99 mph
St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant: 99 mph
Ochopee: 92 mph
Coral Gables: 90 mph
Fort Myers (Southwest Florida International Airport): 89 mph
Marathon Key: 88 mph
Deerfield Beach: 86 mph
Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport: 84 mph
Juno Beach: 83 mph
Miami NWS/NHC office: 81 mph
Tampa Bay: 78 mph
Clearwater Beach: 78 mph
West Palm Beach International Airport: 77 mph
Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport: 75 mph
Port Charlotte (Charlotte County Airport): 74 mph
