Whether it gets up to Category 5 or not is still up in the air, right now it's a weak category 4.

Was just reading there are a couple of unreliable models that have this thing at below 900mb. Even some reliable ones at 920-930. If any of those are accurate it's going to be really bad wherever it hits.

I'm really glad I do not live in a coastal state. The last truly bad weather I experienced was in the early 90's with a blizzard and a tornado. Having to deal with hurricanes and shit every year would be really stressful. Stay safe FL and I hope it doesn't get bad.

I feel like with everyone's eyes on Texas, people aren't going to hesitate with hurricane preparation for a bit. You don't watch that devastation and then pretend like a hurricane is nothing to be concerned about.

Yes because people who are trying to fix their houses may end up with them being irreparable if there's another week of rain

It's the 25th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew. Unfortunately, it's old enough that some of my students here in South Florida don't take hurricanes that seriously. Thankfully the older one who were around for Wilma are more serious about it.

Anyone who remembers Andrew knows just how utterly devastating hurricanes can be. The only positive of Andrew is that it woke up South Florida and got them to take hurricanes even more seriously. Knock on wood, South Florida should be able to handle this better than Andrew. But I'm only considering my area of South Florida; I don't know about the other parts...

As bad as hurricanes are, at least we're capable of seeing them coming days ahead of time. I'd hate to be in an area where massive earthquakes can occur at the drop of a hat
.
I'll be safe for this storm (if it hits), but I'm worrying about coming back to a flooded home. I also have to worry about the plywood covering my windows breaking and the two trees in front of my house falling on top of it. Thank goodness that I live alone and that I can rely on family that live five minutes away in case the worst happens.

I was born and raised in Jacksonville and have never experienced a direct hit. Jacksonville has been insanely lucky with hurricanes for a long long time.
