not that its 340 or 350 its that it consistently punches west for just enough to skew off the normal nnw movement progs.

I had the same situation during Frances. I just cracked open the front door to look out at the storm and the wind came in and rushed up the staircase and blew the attic ceiling door right off. This was only during a Cat. 2 storm. If it had been a Cat. 4 it may have caused the roof to lift. So, the bottom line is even if you are so eager to see out of a shutterred up house, don't open the door during the height of the storm. I only opened it a crack and this happened. Don' t let any air in.




I have a NW facing front door and a SE facing (go figure) rear door.

I could go out the front door without letting any wind in during Frances, but any attempt to open the rear door would have lots of bad juju coming in. I stuck to the front door as my primary mode of egress when I wanted to be outside during the nastiness.

Also, Ivan looks to be strengthening again. This is getting even worse. I think Joe B may be correct...This could be the worst natural disaster in not only Mobile history, but also, could spread well inland.

Frank I would advise you to get out.

Heh, we had it similar. The house sheltered the front door on the North and West, and it's recessed so it's not open to the East either. As a result, we were able to safely open that door during the first half Frances. We boarded it up during the eye (since we knew we had a few hours), and opened a door on the opposite side of the house that would now be sheltered. We were extremely careful, and had a backup plan, but that worked out just fine.

These guys must be nuts. They're still driving around down in Foley, AL.

I attached the pic I was talking about in case they go somewhere else before everyone sees it.

just want to mention that if it wasnt for the hugeness of Ivan's path towards Mobile and areas east or west the fact that Puerto Rico is getting hit directly by a strong tropical storm would normally bring forth tons of posts on weather conditions and information to help others.

know its a small story now compared to what most of us have happening in the states but still..

give a look on radar and know even as a strong TS it will do damage there as well

busy season, gets busier
nice invest as well

This morning at Dauphin Island, AL, wind gusts were recorded at almost 80 knots. Dauphin Island guards the moth of Mobile Bay. This info comes from the National Data Buoy Center, see http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/index.shtml. It provides a good source for real time data along our coasts.
