With Seminole County saying 31 lift stations are without power, I would recomend everyone boil water.

Palm Bay has a good deal of flooding. Good bit of damage along US1 and especially south. Haven't heard specifics about FIT but it's probably without power. Winds are still rocking over here even thought the radar makes it look like we're all clear.

If you hear anything about Melbourne, please post. I can't reach my son on Dairy Road, west of downtown. It doesn't look good on the news.

Here's the blog from Orlando Sentinel about Vero Beach
VERO BEACH - Indian River County was pounded with almost non-stop wind and rain as Hurricane Jeanne came ashore early today, pummeling the area with all-night gusts exceeding 100 mph. Unlike previous storms, the big worry is from the water, not the rain, early assessments showed. Streets across the county were awash in six-to-eight inches of water before noon.

On 17th Street in Vero Beach -- one of the city's main east-west routes -- mattresses, roof shingles and an old rug floated down a four-lane stream. Just a few blocks north on U.S. Highway 1, a downed traffic light floated in the water from a single wire like a bobbin on a fishing-line, rising up and down in the wake of cars driving by. Side streets fed water into the main roads like small rivers emptying into the Gulf of Mexico.

At the aptly-named River Park Place apartments, water rose up past hubcaps of parked cars. In the nearby Rock Ridge neighborhood, water washed across streets and yards and into houses.

It was unclear how bad the situation was on the barrier islands because flooding made it impossible for officials to assess the damage.

Good call on Florida Today.
Here's their assessment

Extensive damage to several small aircraft hangars at Melbourne International Airport.

The intersection of Palm Bay Road and Babcock Street was under about 2 feet of water. Power lines were down all along Babcock in Palm Bay.

The roof was missing at the nearby Avis Rent-a-Car.

The scoreboard at Palm Bay High's football stadium had blown over.

The Melbourne Municipal Golf Course was flooded, with debris littering the course.

The entrance to Melbourne Village from West New Haven was blocked by a large downed tree.

A dormitory at Florida Tech had its roofs ripped off.

The golden arches of McDonald's on Hibiscus Street had fallen down.

Woody Burke Drive in Melbourne was flooded, with waters at least 1½ feet high.

The fire department was on the scene of live downed power lines on Eber Boulevard on the border of Palm Bay and Melbourne.

As long as he's not in a mobile home or in a flood-prone area, he's probably fine. Most reports are of power outages and flooding that far inland. Most of the structure damage we're hearing of occurred along US1 along the river.

Things have reached Frances level here, minus the sustained winds. We've had several 45 to 50 mph gusts (estimated). Official measurement about 6 miles west of me saying 45mph.

Power is doing backflips. I don't think it will stay on much longer.

Re: Jeanne Inland, Still Moving West to West Northwest [Re: MikeC]

I just returned from Indian Rocks Beach, on the western tip of Pinellas County. The wind is gusting to hurricane force! I recorded wind speeds to 75mph while I was out there. The driving sand was very painful. The wind was so strong I could lean back into it and it would hold me up. I also noted some roof damage and many objects blowing across the roadway.

This is far worst than Frances was for Pinellas County. In fact, these are probably the worst conditions in Pinellas County since Elena in 85. Currently, the pressure at my location has dropped to 29.15in. The winds are easily gusting to 65mph inland in Pinellas County. I am surprised I still have power.

Oh man!!! Major gust there. Had to be 60mph.

I'm still seeing via radar loops a very North movement of the eye. I'm giving it time, but it's beginning to look like a world-class wobble if it is one.

Just checking in real quick...twas a long night...I have to work off-site for a time today, so I won't have access to the site.

Godspeed & good luck to everyone with Jeanne...watching TWC and the damage is extreme.

To anyone who expressed their support for me last night, I thank you. There was a thread started in Storm Forum on it and I have put my final reply there, should you wish to view it.

I'll be back later this afternoon...everybody be safe!

This must be a major wobble north, but take a look at the animated Doppler radar link in the center of the following page:

Yep, looks like we are about to get the first real band here.

Pressure is 29.47 and slowly dropping.




Any info on Pasco county? Zephyrhills in particular is loaded with mobile home communities and I'm concerned.

Lots of trees down along with most street signs.
Roads flooded up to the doors of cars.
Business signs down. Shingles off of roofs.

There's no way this thing is going offshore. I think the NHC has a 2pm. update. I hope they can shed some light on it.

I am here in southwest Seminole County. Winds are still gusting pretty strong. I lost power for about 5 seconds (the area has underground cables and never lost power through Chalrely and Frances).

My pool is filled which means I got about 5 inches of rain since midnight. I have a couple of medium branes down, but no huge branches or entire trees.

What are the experts take on the recent "jog" of the eye to the north/northwest?

Sarasota, Florida, 12:10 PM: We continue to have strong TS winds in Sarasota. They are currently from the WNW (290 degrees) at 46 MPH (40 KT) gusting to 56 MPH (49 KT). The pressure continue to be at 988 mb and has held there for almost 3 hours. Power is now out in our neighborhood. It appears Jeanne is moving NW. We have had almost an inch of rain in the last 3 hours.
