Are they kidding? Based on IR it just went poof - all the convention just disappeared. The strongest winds are well displaced from the center.

Now just like during its track thru the Keyes the nasty bits are NE which means Tampa to Ft Myers is going to feel it now. Points further N and inland will start getting more effects as it follows the current path.

Odd that Pinellas doesn't get Veteran's day off....Hillsborough is out today. Wonder what will happen for tomorrow...storm is moving much more quickly and might mostly clear us by then...

Just saw this when I pulled up my e-learning class. At the speed that Eta is now moving, Friday is likely to be a very nice day.....

My weather station’s mast fell at 5 PM, so I have no wind data nor rain data since. Pressure began to rise after 6:30 PM, bottoming out at 29.61”, indicating that the center has moved past my latitude to my west. The heaviest rain band is moving through now. Things should start improving soon.

Back here in SFL we are getting Eta's tail - a long feeder band bringing more heavy rain to some already flooded areas. Thankfully its narrow and moving fast but does reach all the south to Cuba so it could train over some locals for awhile.

Amazingly the storm covers what looks to be 85% of the state with only places west of Apalachicola beyond its reach. Central FL is in a large dry slot but overnight that will fill in with rain and tropical gusts.

Big blow of convection around St Pete right now... hopefully this is Eta's last gasp and just weakens from here on out.

South FL Native... experienced many tropical systems, but actually had to put up the panels for:
David ('79) - Floyd ('87) - Andrew ('92) - Georges ('98) - Frances ('04) - Wilma ('05) - Matthew ('16) - Irma ('17)

4 1/2 inches in Gulfport so far on my PWS. 32 mph gust in my backyard surrounded by trees and fences. I think that is the third highest gust I have recorded here in ten years. Irma, Hermine, and now Eta take the top three. I see 50 mph at Clam Bayou just a few blocks from here.

We have a small sunsetter canopy on our front porch supposed to be good to 35 mph winds. It was thrashing and making a lot of really bad sounds, so I just took it down…for the first time since it was installed. It was about to rip the screws out of the house and become a flapping nightmare. Yea, I should have done that yesterday, or the day before...

I couldn’t remember how to take it down, so was out in the wind and rain struggling with it! It is down now, after getting soaked and falling down once when I finally figured out how to release the two main structure beams and it folded on top of me!

I hope my neighbors across the street were not watching! LOL

Guesstimating gusts to 50+ mph the last 1/2 hour or so here. I heard a tree branch land on the roof a little while ago. Appear to be several down in my back yard.

Plant City has had on and off blustery rain but nothing at a dangerous level. Seems the tornadic activity was south of us and didn't last long.

We have a Spinach Tree that is uprooted in our backyard. A lot of live oak debris, but so far the oak trees themselves are fine. We do have a mess to work on over the weekend, and likely will need to pay someone with a chainsaw and truck to haul off what we can't.

The rain has stopped for now.

Rain gauge topped out at over 6 inches here in Plant City....most of that late yesterday and over night. Lost power for about an hour around midnight but otherwise no damage I can see.
