Hurricane Watches up From Sebastian Inlet North to Fernandia Beach
10:43 AM EDT - 27 August 1999
Update 4PM:Some areas of Florida may be getting Hurricane or Tropical Storm Warnings posted at 5PM. More to come...
As was mentioned earlier, watches are now up for parts of East Central Florida... Which means we could see hurricane conditions within 48 hours...
The official NHC track still takes it to the north, but coming within 100 miles of Cape Canaveral offshore. Very close by. Keep Watch..
Dennis Still moving WNW. An eye appears to be forming on visible satellite pictures, indicating possible strengthening. Movement from that "eye" that has appeared confirms WNW movement. We'll continue watching and preparing here...
Also, during times like these, sites such as ours tend to get overloaded. And therefore I suggest getting a few links for other sites if you have not. Also if an advisory (such as strike probabilities) is not showing up correctly here, then you can look at the Storm Spotlight page to find alternate sources for the advisory text. Of course, the National Hurricane Center/Tropical Prediction Center and The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). If that fails use other links.
For East Central Florida residents and guests looking for more information such as Evacuation Routes and Planning tips see the following pages: [Brevard] [Volusia] [Flagler] [Indian River] [Inland] [News Media]
These have links to the county sites which gives evacuation information and shelter locations.
Also our links page has links to other areas in Florida -- look for the Emergency Management County pages.
