Huge arc with blue and green light. Power flickering. Won't be long now. I can see arcing of electric equipment in all directions, as far as the eye can see.

Lake Wales, which was hit very hard by Charley is now completely without power.

If you think your garage door may cave in, a good tip is to park a car against it from the inside. If the door begins to buckle it is greatly strengthened by pressing against the automobile. Just roll the car back until it's touching the door. It doesn't have to be tight against it, just within a inch.

Thanks for the reassurance.

In Volusia County we are currently getting 35 sustained with gusts of 50.


Garages tend to go because it's easier for the wind to get in there. Garage doors aren't as sturdy as a wall, and once that wind gets a way in, it tends to lift the roof off. If you're garage has been closed in, you should be okay.

Looks like, on the current path, the storm will move over north Tampa and New Port Richey area out into the GOM - best estimate now - around 4 - 6 PM. That leaves roughly another 12 hours over land to weaken. By that time, maybe expect tropical storm force winds sustained of 50-60 mpg with gusts perhaps as high as 75 mph.

Hope this will post ok, I am not at home, and on a friends computer in Leesburg-Lake Co. (and forgot password...)
I live in Sumter, and so far all I can gather is trees being down the majority of damage so far there? Does any one know?
Man., Im so excited we still have electric, my sis in law is baking a cake! Mmm German Choc. Cheesecake, now a hurricane tradition w/ us!
We are gusting around 40? I havent looked out much, as Ive been watching the news.

exit path [Re: RONJON]
      #32612 - Sun Sep 26 2004 07:21 AM

Hmmm.. I'm beginning to think Jeanne will exit a bit more north of Frances. Like Cedar Key, or maybe even start to curve back into North Florida. I'm looking forward to the NHC 11am track.

Yes, we too will be anxious to see the 11:00 am discussion (or just watching radar could be telling enough). We've missed the brunt of all these storms, however, we've had to be on guard each time....looks like it could be another overnight vigil.

Hello Everyone,

I am reporting from the Wekiva sub-division of Southwest Seminole county. The winds are howling. I cannot believe we still have power, but we never lost power through Charley or Frances either. All of the power cables are buried in this division. We are on the more outer of the bands and when the cells come, they rip through the area. I al completely boarded up and I feel a lot more comfortable with that.

I am concerned with the numerous mobile home parks along the I4 corridor from Orlando to Tampa. My mother is one of them in Plant City, FL. She is in a shelter but I am afraid there will be no house for her to go back to after this is all over. I can only imagine the wind and rain closer to the eye. It's bad here, it must be worse south of here.

God Bless and everyone do not get brave and venture out to early.

Tally should be okay, she will most likely be a strong TS by that time and not in hurricane strength mode. She is gradually weakening. Which I am very grateful for. Those who have not gotten her yet, hang in there. I am begining to feel like a hurricane vetern, been through enough of these.

I am also curious to see the 11 a.m. track. We are between Gainesville and Lake City. We got spanked by Frances, and it looks like we're in for it again with Jeanne. Near as I can tell, the winds will be heavier with this one for us.

Another question ... why does everyone think Jeanne will continue to fall in intensity even after it gets over GOM? I would (amateurly) expect that once the eye gets out over open water, strengthening would occur.
