Fuck, this is not good.





A few of those forecast tracks have it riding up the western Florida coast and over/near Tampa.

These tracks do not look good for those islands either, it's a category 4 now but wouldn't surprise me if it gets stronger. It's been over a decade (Wilma I believe) since Florida had a major hurricane make landfall, looks like that might be about to change. Hopefully it'll move quick unlike Harvery which was a thousand year scenario and beyond devastating.

Bottled water, batteries, generators etc., are already sold out in Tampa. Lines are over an hour long for those trying to get any remaining supplies.

This is going to be a nightmare, many of us might not be able to flee north because roads will be jammed with traffic.

It's still moving west and is too far south to miss the US. It is going veer north through the state of Florida.

Winds are now 185mph........

The outer edge may hit the US but other than washed cars and watered plants it will do no damage.

I don't have a whole lot of faith in meteorologists, especially more than 2-3 days out, but this is a little hard to believe. Sure the media is notorious for fear mongering, and in light of Harvey probably err on the side of caution. However, this is a big and bad storm that is likely to do some damage to Florida. A majority of the models having it passing through Florida.

Regardless, I really hope you are correct.

Central Pressure (true Hurricane strength measurement) has dropped from 926mb to 916mb. The lowest ever measured anywhere in the world was 870mb.

Current track as of this AM, looks like it'll go north thru Florida Sunday morning and make another landfall around Savannah and move NE thru the Carolinas early next week.

I'm hoping Riz isn't responding because he's on a flight to a weed friendly state, to say people in So Flo are in a bit of danger is an understatement.

We're off the hook here in Tampa now, but yeah Riza is going to get at least strong glancing blow.

We're prepped, I've been putting shutters up at the house and will do the townhome as well once I get the fuck out of the office, which we have also shuttered up. Sending folks home tomorrow and Friday. Fuckin stress man, been through it as you all know a few times, in multiple states. Nothing defines responsibility like this shit.

the cone shifted east a bit now. And all the models are east of FL at the moment. Funny thing is as ass backwards as this state is in so many ways it's the most prepped infrastructure wise.

The latest Hurricane models have shifted the storm to the west about 50-75 miles. Not good news for us in Tampa.
