A Turn to the North May have Begun
07:40 AM EDT - 28 August 1999
Although we cannot say all clear for Florida still, good news (for us) has come in the form of the storm appearing to move more Northwest than West overnight.
Of course, for our friends in SC/NC, this is not good news so they need to continue watching it.
Hurricane Watches and Tropical Storm Warnings are still up for the coast, however, and we are still likely to get some squalls later today and tomorrow. And of course, if this decides to make a jog back to the west (it's still moving at an almost glacial rate) we will be in the woods again. Until it is North of Daytona and a good distance away from us, do not let your guard down.
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.
