This link goes straight to the Hurricane Center.
It carries the latest statements from the local NWS offices.
They are being updated about every 3 hours tonight.

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/index_hls.shtml

If you have a way of contacting your husband. I would recommend that he leave the mobile home while he can. Tell him to take important papers, etc and double wrap them in plastic, and take them with him. There are a couple of shelters near Dunnelton.
http://hurricane.weathercenter.com/shelter/citrus.htm

This is a shelter list from TampaBayOnline. I hope it helps,and I hope you use the shelters. Please.

From Pinellas County [Re: SOUTHFLAHAPPYGAL]
      #32590 - Sun Sep 26 2004 06:12 AM

We are starting to feel tropical storm force winds here in Pinellas County. My location is now experiencing winds in excess of 40mph. The pressure is 29.35in and falling. We have not had significant rainbands yet, but the main core of storm is approaching from the east, and I expect hurricane force gusts in one or two hours. The lowest pressure from Frances I recorded was 29.03in, so we might get lower than that this time.

On another note. I awoke at 5:30am this morning to discover that Pinellas County emergency management just finally issued a mandatory evac for mobile home residents. Why did they not issue this yesterday? This is a serious lapse by emergency management and indicates how most people have downplayed Jeanne's impact on this area.

From beautiful surburban Montverde area. Wind gusts are exceeding 70 mph with heavy rain and Orlando Channel 9 doppler showing the eye of the storm just north of Lake Okeechobee. We are under every storm watch/warning that there can be except for snow. Anyone in a mobile home should be out, period.

It seems that some county Mayors are NOT pro active....they sit around waiting to see what the surrounding counties are doing. Here( in Broward county Mayor) is one of them.....she is the last to be heard from......she is follower not a leader! Sorry to be off topic...but we all need to realize how much this impacts our lives

evacuating [Re: Ronn]
      #32593 - Sun Sep 26 2004 06:21 AM

Here in volusia county many coastal residents did not evacutate. Reasons being, no funds due to loses from Charley and Frances. The southern end of the county had no gas, hence no gas to even get to free shelters. Some evacuated to other areas last time that were hit harder than this area. The most common reason I have heard, is that they weren't allowed back home for extended periods of time last time and are just plain old sick of being stranded. Our shelters had 5600 persons in them with Frances, with Jeanne we currently only have 2200 in them.

With the exception of the southern most portions of this county we aren't getting hit as bad as they had predicted. I hope all those people are safe.

how fast are the winds going to be here in spring hill? on the hurricane alley websites they have spots on there for 95 mph winds. the winds here are 28 with gusts of 44. if the track holds out i would be on the northern side of the storm.

I Can NOT predict where Jeanne will go. I can only map out where she's been and where she MIGHT be headed.
That being said, the Northward jog she has taken. Has lined her up where the eye will come really close to passing over Pinellas County. If I mapped the Possible track out right. Should Jeanne continue on this course the center will pass through Southwestern Polk County, the Southern half of Hillsborough County, and Over Most of Pinellas County.

I am not a met, and this is not a forecast. Merely extrapolating the track over the last few hours, and carrying it forward.
If You are in a Mandatory Evacuation area, and especially if you have Children with you. Please evacuate, NOW!

Wow. Things are really pickiing up. Hearing sounds I never heard before!

What we are experiencing in North Lakeland (Close to I-4 & HWY98) is far more severe than anything we had with Charley or Frances. From what I see on radar, the bad stuff isn'ty here yet, but is on the way.

I'll post as long as possible. Have a system that should last a few hours after the power goes out.

Hope Colleen is doing ok. She's in South Lakeland - in the "Highands" as they call it, near the highest point in Polk County.

I wish we could tell you how fast they would be in your area.
The maximum sustained wind at this time is 110 mph, or 100 knots. Whichever you prefer. That will do a great deal of damage to houses and mobile homes.
73-112 mph
The lower limit is the beginning of hurricane wind speed; peels surface off roofs; mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned; moving autos pushed off the roads; attached garages may be destroyed.

I'm in Ocala. I think the winds are stronger at this time than they were from Frances. We're getting maybe 35mph gusts. Reading the NOAA local advisory for winds I don't think we'll have higher winds than we did from Frances, but it sure looks like we'll be getting them for a longer time.

Why the attached garages? My current bedroom is a converted attached garage?

Garages tend to go because it's easier for the wind to get in there. Garage doors aren't as sturdy as a wall, and once that wind gets a way in, it tends to lift the roof off. If your garage has been closed in, you should be okay.
