    I hope all the Florida members are safe.

    I'm not really sure what to say other than be safe and good luck.

    Thank you guys. I am on the East coast so not much impact here, but prepped by filling gas, having propane, water/beer, all the essentials. My family and friends in Tampa are ok as well.

    Here are a couple of cool sites for tracking it:

    Actual winds: https://www.ventusky.com/?p=28.13;-82.64;7&l=wind-10m

    Spaghetti models: https://www.cyclocane.com/
    Linux is user friendly, it's just picky about its friends...

    Very breezy today, sustained winds around 30mph, will stay like that until late tonight I guess. No damages here, just some debris. My friends and family in Tampa are fine, most have power and all. My niece in Orlando is without power, and streets are flooded a bit. The huge hit, as expected was the area it made landfall, around Sanibel island and Port Charlotte in the lower west coast of FL. There were a lot of damages there, 2 Million people without power, 150mph winds, flooding, and a few confirmed deaths. One bridge collapsed, which was the only road to Sanibel and Captiva islands, so people lost the only way to get to/from their homes there.


    Worst of it is over for Florida, but it was a huge storm.
