Re: Jeanne Still Heading West [Re: Liz L.]

According to MLB radar, it appears Jeanne is making a slight jog to the right as it interacts with land. Jupiter being hit hard now and Ft. Pierce about to get slammed in the next hour.
Eye should make a slight right turn at landfall and remain pretty close to NHC track. Latest surface pressure falls seem to favor the track across to the west coast, and water vapor doesn't indicate anything to stop Jeanne short of briefly entering GOM near Weeki Wachee.
Last GFDL output brings it closest to Tampa, but looks like a CAT 1, after quickly weakening inland. Obviously everyone is concerned about Lakeland and Polk Co. areas dealing with their third direct hit. God bless you all.

I'm still here even with 70 plus mph winds. Do I have a generator I don't know about?

Godspeed to all of you in the path of this storm. Just went through Ivan and we were far east and for us it was a long night. The tornados were horrible then, I hope none of you have to deal with that. Good luck all...thoughts and prayers are with all.

Saw JB on Fox just a bit ago (he's on every half hour or so for those that want to see him). He too is harping on the idea of land interaction causing the storm to kick NNW. He thinks landfall may be around or north of Vero when all is said and done and then resuming the expected course. He was in the middle of an explanation why he thought this would occur when they lost transmission (fox w/ JB that is). I think he is looking at it like what we saw with Charley, where the land friction causes the storm to spin to the right, although the thinking would be in reverse in this case than with Charley.

I'm gonna go see what's up outside...

Here is some info from FPL on power restoration:
Florida Power and Light Co. said 12,000 of its customers were without electricity. The utility appealed nationwide for more linemen and tree-cutters to supplement the crews still repairing damage from the last hurricanes.
"Our resources are clearly stretched," FPL President Armando Olivera said. "In all candor we must tell our customers that they must be prepared for extended outages, perhaps three weeks or more."

Looks like even the aftermath will be hard to deal with, i.e. no working gas stations, ice, and food!!

hey, I agree...I think Port St Lucie at 11 PM. Pretty close to NHC. Maybe a tad south. My point was its not gonna veer sharply to the north and skip along the coast like CNN stated

Surprisingly little rain so far on the north side... while south FL is getting drowned. Daytona needs no more (31 inches in the last 2 months) so that is a blessing for them. It appears to be the result of the dry air surrounding Jeanne to the north and east. Have no idea how long that luck will hold though...

I do not recall exactly what Frances did in Spring Hill. The bigger danger, in that area, is the flooding moreso then the wind. Rain could be very heavy. It is also possible that if it passes east of Spring Hill, there could be a lot of water blown on shore from the Gulf. That is a major issue in that area.

If CNN said Jeanne is going to skip up the coast, perhaps they meant the west coast... because if they meant the east coast, somebody needs to send them the link for the NHC....

Was talking with someone today traveling home to JAX from Georgia. Said he saw a whole caravan of utility trucks heading north into Georgia. Wait, you're going the wrong way!

Admittedhacker,

yeah, they said skip up the east coast! I guess they don't believe NHC or their own eyes!

I am over here in DeLand and the last thing we need is more rain. We have had 36 inches in the last 10 weeks and everything is flooding.I lost three trees in Charlie (one landed on the backisde of my house) and two trees during Frances (both on my garage) I hope the dry air holds and the western path continues. I am tired of paying these outrageous deductibles!! At least my family was safe. Of course I dont wish the path on anyone! But we have had enough.............

the gulf stream is fairly close to the coast from Jupiter south, so it's in the middle of it until 10 to 15 miles offshore. Its further away from the coast the more north you get.
