    Same here, prepping and waiting to see where storm is headed. If it hits close to cuba the mountains there will tear it up some and could reduce it to a cat 2. They just don't know when it will turn and where it will go. In 2004, people from Tampa evacuated to Orlando because Charlie was suppose to hit Tampa and instead it turned and made a beeline for Orlando and they got stuck here when Tampa was spared. Roads were blocked, power lines down, no gas. I have been through many hurricanes and several Typhoons. I will ride out a CAT1-2, maybe a 3 depending where eye is forcast, anything about that I'm headed for the hills.



    Category 1: Winds range from 74 to 95 mph and can be expected to produce some minor damage to property. Injuries to people and animals are generally isolated and limited to flying or falling debris. During a Category 1 storm, protected glass windows generally remain intact. Some roof damage to frame homes, apartments, and shopping centers can also occur, as well as short-term power outages due to snapped power lines and downed trees.

    Category 2: Winds range from 96 to 110 mph and can be expected to produce extensive property damage. Greater wind velocities mean that debris poses a greater threat to humans and animals, while the roofing, siding, and glass windows (protected and unprotected) of frame homes are more vulnerable to damage. In a Category 2 storm, significant structural damage to apartment buildings, mobile homes, and shopping centers is also expected, as well as flooding in low-lying areas. Extensive power outages ranging from a few days to a few weeks are common, and residents are encouraged to stock up on potable water as filtration systems also fail during this time.

    Category 3: Winds ranging from 111 to 130 mph cause significant damage to property, humans, and animals. Mobile and poorly constructed frame homes are often destroyed, and even well-built frame homes commonly sustain major damage. Significant damage to apartments and shopping centers (even those made of wood or steel) can be expected. Category 3 storms can also cause extensive inland flooding. Electricity and water are commonly unavailable for several days to several weeks after the storm, therefore it’s important for residents to have their own stores of canned food and water.

    Category 4: Winds range from 311 to 155 mph and can cause catastrophic damage to property, humans, and animals. Severe structural damage to frame homes, apartments, and shopping centers should be expected. Category 4 hurricanes often include long-term power outages and water shortages lasting from a few weeks to a few months, so again, it’s important for any remaining residents to have a significant nonperishable food and water supply at hand.

    Category 5: Winds at or greater than 155 mph cause catastrophic damage to property, humans, and animals (read: you should be nowhere near this storm!). Complete or almost-complete destruction of mobile homes, frame homes, apartments, and shopping centers should be expected, and nearly all trees in the area will be snapped or uprooted. Power outages can last for weeks and possibly months. Long-term water shortages should be expected as well, and most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months.

    Wasn't Wilma a Cat 1, when she turned and refueled over the Everglades?
    Wind monitor in Belleglade, down the street from Sis-n-laws house registered 185 wind.
    Me and the Mr held up our western wall, for over an hour, and never said a word.......

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.

    Whatever you do to be spiritual do it for the folks returning from Harvey and now for the folks in the path of Irma, raise up your goblet with the pirate crest upon it.

    On the kind of dark swing side, I will be interested to see what the Poseidon gives back from the depths after he takes it away from others.

    I'd be ready to sprint ,and obviously would need to be restrained by now to not be hundreds of miles north of the keys. Or farther.

    Stood on the Naples pier long ago and considered how Donna swatted it.
    That pier was swatted at least four times over it's varied lives, but I knew I was not tougher than it.

    Call me chicken but there is no desire in me to be a bug swatted by a shoe heel and then left in a flooded debris field.
    Were I to jump the gun too early and find out I could have stayed, so be it.

    Not the hurricane but the level of it. 3 and up is a manic fury best side stepped if at all possible.

    Current prediction has Miami taking it on the chin ,followed by an East coast slide .

    Pat, ya'll better hit the road. They ordered a mandatory evacuation for us here in Broward county east of US 1 starting tomorrow. My brother is on the road now heading to my uncles house in St. Cloud. He said it's bumper to bumper. 3 hour trip has taken over 5 hours so far and still counting. From there they are heading to Ga. tomorrow.

    Myself, I can't do anything until I refuel my truck because I burned out 3/4 of a tank since yesterday morning working. I refuse to sit in a gas line for hours though. 9 out of 10 stations are out of gas. People are sitting at empty stations waiting on fuel trucks to show up. It's ridiculous. I plan on searching around 3 am for fuel. If that don't work, I'll siphon it out of the wife's SUV, lol. Then I'll decide whether or not to leave tomorrow evening after I see the latest forecast track. It's gonna be a bottleneck heading north regardless.

    Good luck out there everyone! Be safe!

    Your gas situation is exactly where ours was last week. Some stations are still flat out of gas - it sucks!
