RE: HURRICANE IRMA
Long timer lurker here... Roll, I hope there's a way to keep the site going. I think some of the lower engagement may be due to fatigue. There has been a storm to hold our attention for over three weeks straight now. About the only thing that holds my attention that long is Game of Thrones. Hope there's a way to keep it going.

RE: HURRICANE IRMA
Update, most of Orlando survived fine. Lots and lots of tree clearing with a few down. Seems like Charley cleared away most of the weak ones 10 years ago. Power outages and lift stations out the biggest problems. No real reason for a 6pm curfew.

Spare us your lecture from TN. I'm a WESTPAC Super Typhoon (that's a Cat 5) X-3 survivor, Florida Charlie, 911 Pentagon survivor and first responder, Katrina responder, 32 year Marine and Navy vet with FEMA certification
and was born in Key West in 1956. I get it. For us that have experienced death and destruction without suffering PTSD, making light of catastrophic situations is a way to get through them. I have friends in the Keys that I will be helping and friends 10 miles away that I have already helped today here in North Tampa. Keep shopping and smiling there in the Grand Ole Opry.

His donation was 1000 acres on the island, which at the time was popular among Japanese tourists (late 80s...the Japanese were still going to rule the world back then, kind of like the Chinese are now). He made his money building reinforced concrete buildings. He had found sales difficult until a typhoon scraped every structure crom the island.....except for his three demonstration buildings. He couldn't build fast enouvh after that.

Would ask that we never, ever disparage the amount of damage and mental anguish this storm has caused - if nothing else, we had an entire state on high alert for what appeared to be imminent....in retrospect we may see that, thankfully, much did not come to fruition YET....but it's not over....thousands fled from their homes and waited nervously for this to resolve....others frantically boarded their homes and laid in supplies.....some, unfortunately, lost their lives....tons of Federal, State and local dollars have already been spent to ensure the safety of the citizens of FL....after all this is but a memory, then we can begin to compare to things we've all experienced both in FL and in other places....right now, the wound is raw and still being injured.....

Tropical Storm Irma Discussion Number 51
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL112017
500 PM EDT Mon Sep 11 2017

Surface synoptic data over the southeastern United States indicate
that Irma continues to weaken. The maximum winds are now near 45
kt, and these are confined to the Georgia and South Carolina coastal
area, along with some winds to tropical storm force in interior
central to northern Georgia. Irma continues to have some
extratropical characteristics, since a fairly well-defined
baroclinic zone lies not far from the center. Nevertheless, the
large circulation should continue to spin down due to land
interaction and strong southwesterly shear. The official intensity
forecast is above most of the guidance, so the system could weaken
faster than shown here. Irma should weaken to a depression in 24
hours or sooner, and the global guidance shows the circulation
dissipating over the east-central United States after 48 hours.

Synoptic center fixes give a continued north-northwestward motion
of 340/15 kt. There is little change to the track forecast
reasoning. For the next day or two, Irma or its remnants should
move on a north-northwestward to northwestward track along the
periphery of a broad mid-level cyclonic gyre. The official
forecast is a blend of the latest GFS and ECMWF solutions.

KEY MESSAGES:

1. There is the danger of life-threatening storm surge flooding
along portions of the coasts of western Florida, Georgia, and South
Carolina, where Storm Surge Warnings remain in effect.

2. Irma is producing very heavy rain across the southeastern United
States. Intense rainfall rates are leading to flash flooding and
rapid rises on creeks, streams, and rivers. Significant river
flooding will persist over the Florida peninsula in the wake of Irma
and in Georgia, South Carolina and north-central Alabama, where
additional heavy rains are expected. Portions of these states
within the southern Appalachians will be especially vulnerable to
flash flooding. Irma is also expected to produce heavy rains in
northern Mississippi and southern portions of Tennessee and North
Carolina, where local flooding may occur.

RE: HURRICANE IRMA
Quick comment about the site and the low participation.

I think it is just more variety now. When I first started coming here before katrina there really wasn't any other forums setup for stuff like this. This was pre-twitter and facebook. There is just so many ways now for people to connect that I think that perhaps it gets lost in the shuffle. I would imagine there are tons of other weather related forums to choose from now. Then you add in things like zello, snapchat, twitter, facebook and I can see how it would be difficult to draw people here. Only thing I can suggest to to try and get your google search results up when people search for weather related forums.

After I found it, this quickly became my main "go to" site for hurricanes and has remained so for years. It is where I tell friends to go for more comprehensive information in one place.
