Hurricane Watches From Flagler South to Hallandale -- 155MPH
05:01 AM EDT - 13 September 1999
Good morning. Not much new to say this morning. The storm is 1Mph shy of Category 5 status, and it's still moving West. Prepare Now. I am. Today will be sporadic post day and I'll be checking only ocassionally so hopefully all my automated stuff works without blowing up. Stay tuned to local media and keep watch.
Evacuation orders would be done tomorrow if done, so remember this. Today may be the only full day you get to have before conditions worsen. Good luck and God Bless all! It is important to not panic and just prepare smart. It could still miss us (direct landfall), but I doubt we won't get by without a fairly significant scratch from a near cat 5 Hurricane.
