First time poster here - been reading for about 3 years, though - thank you all for the information!

Satellite Beach here (about 5 mi. No. of Melb. Beach). Sporadic power outages, kinda windy . A couple of tornadoes from what I've heard on the local news, but hopefully none too close...

Collegemom,

It's hit and miss in Melb. I'm in Suntree and it's windy and rainy. The closer the the coast the worst from what Im hearing. Tornado have been in south brevard and north brevard. One on John Rhoddes and 192. If there is anything to worry about around FIT I'll PM!

Reporting in from Spring Hill (Hernando County), not much going, with the back edge of the rain starting to come through and should end in the next hour. Rain showers all night, highest wind gust was 39 mph in the early morning hours.

Rainfall has been light near only 1 inch. 40 miles to the east places received 6-8 inches, doppler estimates from storm cells that just sat there last night.

Temps have dropped to 59 and continue to fall.

At UCF [Re: emackl]
      #62900 - Mon Oct 24 2005 08:48 AM

I'm across the street (And a couple blocks South) of the university. Nothing too spectacular. Wind, rain, the occasional gust that hammers the rain against my window and flutters the cheap vinyl siding (Yay apartments being built by the lowest bidder) but I'n in no danger at all. Charley rolled through here, and aside from the food going bad (I had left instructions to put the meat in a cooler when I went home to Pasco, roommates left for the shelter on campus without doing that, 5 days without power = "jesus h. christ what's that smell?") no damage was sustained by my apartment. Currently, I'm just keeping a continuous trickle of beer going on and keeping tabs on the radar.

Wilma is definitely clipping along. Already south of Okeechobee. She'll be back over open water by noon at this rate.. maybe sooner.

Palm Bay here. Windy, rainy, just had a few minutes of gentle breezes and very light rain give way to renewed heavy rains. Tornados have been spawning around my general area but staying away from where I am for now. Lost power once in a beautiful green-blue flash, got it back in short order.

Hard to say if we've gotten or worst yet or not.

I'm fairly close to UCF as well and conditions are certainly better than they were in Charley although they appear to have gotten a noticeably worse in the past 15 minutes. Longer periods of sustained winds and definitely more driving rain. My work said to call at 10 or so and find out if I need to come in at noon. Now to me it just doesn't seem safe to be driving at all today.

Thanks for all the great information everyone!

I know the word "Tampa" can spark controversy here but have we seen the worst of our winds and threat of tornadoes here in the St Pete/Tampa area?

Looking at radar, I'd say Tampa will be sunny and cool within two hours. That front is really clearing things out fast right behind the storm.

Tornadoes gone??? [Re: StPeteBill]
      #62912 - Mon Oct 24 2005 09:19 AM

Hey guys. Things in Lakeland seem to be improving by the hour. Still windy, some rain, and occasional strong gusts, but I get the feeling the worst for us is over. Last night was pretty dicey - as some of you may be aware, I had a minor meltdown last night when Polk County started getting bombarded with tornado warnings, touchdowns, and threats of tornado "clusters". I got it together though, and sat up all night listening for the freight train I was expecting to plow into my bedroom. It never came.

Although there are reports of tornado touchdowns near here, I haven't heard of any extensive damage yet. My power flickered a few times & DSL went down for a couple of hours, but other than that, I'd say we're pretty lucky. After I got back on line, I caught up with all the postings. Sounds like many had an exciting night! Hope everyone is safe and sound. I know many of our neighbors to the south and east still have some rough moments ahead. Stay safe - we're praying for you.

Oh - and thanks again to everyone who talked me through my "episode" last night! This site has been a godsend!

Channel 9 had a report of a tornado in Melbourne off of 192 I think out near Wickham. Live report showed an apartment complex with a rather large part of the roof torn off in a couple of places and some vehicles with their windows blown out. Also the said, one car was thrown some distance away back in some woods where some large oak trees where blown down....Real heavy rain here at times, I can hear the surf from my house . When the rains let up a bit I`ll try and get some pictures.....Weatherchef
