Supposed to make landfall on the Florida Panhandle late Wednesday afternoon.Intense rainfall should bring significant flooding.


Since we moved to Florida(exactly 1 year ago today),my main worry has been hurricane season- it's the price you pay for 74 degree weather in January.I check the National Hurricane Center's website a couple of times a week.There's some good information there and it's updated several times a day during a storm event.Stay safe ,all of our PA colleauges in any affected areas.

Hoping everyone acted smart and got outta dodge for this one...this one is quick but it looks like it's packing quite a wallop when it first hits land.

Nope...their are still some...shall we say...not too bright ones left...watching a bit the news crews there on site...lot's of very VERY expensive boats still in the water at the marinas....and cars just hundreds of yards from the ocean front.

That 9-14 ft storm surge is going to do historic damage there...If I was the insurance companies....would really be ticked off....people had 3 days notice...no excuse for some of the damage about to occur...

Most of the housing there is also pre-Andrew...that damage will be unavoidable...but those staying in those houses...eeerrrr...foolish.

Hope you keep safe and watch from afar.

I'm in Pensacola.We live on a bayou and less than 10 minutes to the beach so we have been pretty nervous about the path changing..I have zero trust in the weather forecast in general but they have been right on the money so far. We have dodged a real bullet so far. Several bars east of here on the coast my girlfriend plays at are going to get flattened. Hoping everyone around Panama City left, but some did not. This is going to be bad.

This is WHY you don't mess around with storm surge...

Storm chasers who get right in the path of the storm. Check out YouTube and other places, there are a few of those channels and those crazy bastards get some amazing video.

Victims of Hurricane Michael are represented by climate deniers

Elections have consequences. Denying science has consequences. And we are reaping what we sow.

Just think: If Floridians had voted dimwit, the Panhandle cold have avoided Michael.
