To all those still on line... [Re: danielw]
      #28172 - Thu Sep 16 2004 12:29 AM

I want to thank you all for checking in here and posting...

I need to take a 10-20 minute break from the site...which probably translates to a decent sleep, but I will try to be on line for those who need, well, whatever do you need aside from power, security, electricity, food...not to make light of it.... but I GOTTA just sit back for a couple and watch the inanity of TWC and their endless recycled stories.

I would think that if you live in a home in the danger area that is built on stilts, you might wat to consider leaving it, though, I don't have any experience in that area.

Peace and godspeed ATTM.

Hey LisaNC,
North Carolina seems to be a safe haven this hurricane season.

No worries.

I'll follow that with a repeat of last night's evacuation info.
If you are:
1-If you are the only one left in your neighborhood, and you are in an evacuation zone. you may need to leave now.
2-If there are bridges between you and safety, you need to leave now.
3-If you fit the above situations, and you have children with you, You Need To Leave Now!
4-In short, if your weather is bad, Ivan is coming toward you, and you Aren't 100% sure. YOU NEED TO LEAVE NOW !!

Too late to leave now...they need to hunker down now...the worst is about to come ashore.

Btw, Floridians....there are Hurricane Watches up for the SE Bahamas.

There may be a few places, that don't have 35mph winds yet, that could be evacuated. Ivan seems to want to drag this out some more. Energizer Ivan..going and going and going.

I saw that Recon was flying Jeanne about 30 minutes ago. Should have an update in an hour or two.

I love the Smokeys, I think some of the hiking trails may be changed due to flooding streams if they get as much rain from Ivan as is forecast. It's supposed to stall over that area possibly until it rains itself out.
I hope the damage to the mountains and the towns are kept to a minimum.....

jason said we just had a gust of 74??? been really picking up the last hour or so. they were showing sky web cam and you could transformers blowing. he said if we still had lights we were lucky if we had above ground power lines. ours have gone out a few times but come back on. my 2 dogs are sorta sleeping too but they are right underfoot. storm surge maybe a little higher with the center coming alittle closer to us. news is saying almost 200 building have major damage or are destroyed from the tornados. got a huge oak limb down in back yard and a couple of big pine limbs. all kinds of little limbs. glad we are just getting the fringes. has anyone heard from frank. and what about coop you ok

No wishcasting or dire predictions for east coast Florida, please! We CANNOT handle another one of these right now. Even if it only comes close and veers off, it will cause a run on gasoline and batteries, not to mention generators (for the 4 or 5 people who didn't buy one for Frances) and everything not tied down in the camping section of Wal-Mart (which isn't much anyways these days). Plus my students need to get back to school so that they can actually LEARN about weather!

Sorry... think I'm suffering from a little PTSD tonight. Prayers to ANYONE who gets even a drop of rain from Ivan!

WLOX-TV is located about a half mile from where FrankP lives and about 2 miles from where Javlin lives. They just announced that 10,000 customers were without power in Harrison County,MS. So they should be okay.

WOW! That was some impressive waves they just showed in Pensacola on MSNBC! I can't imagine how terrifying it must be for those who evacuated from the islands to be seeing these pictures, not to mention how scared the folks are who stayed!

notice how they keep coming west with track..get used to it because there is more to come..a stalled out Ivan is going to pump the ridge up, models will get a better handle once Ivan comes to its resting psotion after the stall. conditions favorable too as pointed out by NHC in a few days.

Re: Ivan Update [Re: danielw]
      #28190 - Thu Sep 16 2004 02:47 AM

Ivan's on shore of the barrier islands of Alabama; the northern eyewall looks to be making its way into the mainland now.

And just as I thought I could get some rest here....phone call comes with a line moving into Tallahassee with the notification of a tornado warning just to the south. The line has slowly been moving east as Ivan has, and this area has been untapped all day long. Large values of speed -- and some directional -- shear coupled with a bit of instability and the typical stuff you see with outer rainbands...well, this could be an interesting night yet in the eastern panhandle.

Stay safe, everyone.
