Can any one tell me where to find airport closing info? My husband is flying to WPB on Mon. Will it be open?

Will WBP have power?

Looks to me like the eye is starting to lift a bit more toward the NNW as it has moved more than 1/2 on shore. Anyone else seeing that? I'm watching the Melbourne Radar loop via Wunderground.com.

Several Questions/Comments [Re: 1994plj]
      #32442 - Sun Sep 26 2004 12:57 AM

First off... I've been lurking for the last 2 months or so and finally decided to register this morning. Thanks for all the hard work you guys do! My first comment is in regards to how UF has handled this storm (and the others for that matter). With each storm, they are waiting until the last possible minute to decide what to do about class schedules and offices. My wife has been begging me to take a weekend trip to Jacksonville to get away from Jeanne (she's scared after all the damage we took from Frances). However, I feel like I can't leave until I can be sure I won't HAVE to work on Monday. Unfortunately, that information won't come until it's too late to leave!

2nd comment concerns my weather observations for the day. I remember during Frances that it was noticeably windy/gusty for at least 36 hours before the eye even made landfall. However, today, the winds didn't pick up until a little after noon. I don't know that this means anything... just thought it was interesting.

Next, I was curious as to weather anyone could generate a map sometime tomorrow evening showing the paths of Charley, Frances, and Jeanne. I think it would interesting to see how each of these storms tracked over the state on one map.

Finally, I was watching FOX News earlier tonight with JB and he mentioned something I thought was interesting. He said that he thinks what we're seeing with all these FL hits has something to do with his theory of "Coinciding Tracks" or something like that. Does anyone know anything about this? Is it a real theory (and what is it's real name?) JB went on to say that he didn't think FL was done yet this year. He also said that he expects this track theory to be seen again in the next 5 - 10 years near the New England states. Any thoughts on this?

I heard a boom up here in Apopka. It was accompanied by the blue flash.
In the past storms, we didn't hear the boom because the wind was harder.

I'd say he might be able to fly in, but don't bet on power... he might as well reschedule.

My husband is scheduled to go to West Palm on Monday. Are the airports closed as of now?

Any news about the WPB power outages?

They need to contact the airline, and any local contacts in WPB. Some places (esp. south and west county) are planning business as usual by Monday.

Could be Florida has become a "strange attractor" as they call it in chaos theory, I believe.

Im feeling the same way here, I was getting a lil tired until I start hearing that howling wind! its really scary because ive got all these huge oaks around me, enough distance between our home and them that if one or 2 fall it shouldnt land on the house never the less its still scary. I dont know if i should stay up all night or just try and go to sleep.Im leaning towards pulling an all nighter.

Davenport, Polk County, I4 and 27 this may be my last post. Power and cable just went down for about 15 sec. Transformers blowing. Winds were about 35-40 but now almost dead calm again. Why can't this s#!t happen in daylight??? I have my house cooled down like a meat locker, 20 gal of water in the fridge, 40 # of ice in the freezer, about 40 batteries, full coleman lantern, full hurricane lamp. Let's get it on.

I've been seeing the same thing - thought at first my eyes were playing tricks. But it's persisted - the eye seems to be running up the coast.

For what it's worth, here in North Port, FL (extreme southern Sarasota Co.), it's not too bad yet. Steady winds of maybe 25 mph with higher gusts, scant rain bands. I am concerned about Jeanne's painfully slow increase in latitude--since I sit at around 27.1 N and Jeanne has taken almost 38 hours to move up one full degree of latitude. I hate to go to bed only to find Jeanne passing overhead in 4-6 hours. Has the high in the Atlantic retreated so Jeanne can turn more northward, or not? Boy, these nighttime hurricanes really bite. Good luck to all Floridians--what a price we pay to live in paradise.

the boom was a transformer in my back yard @ SPRINT parking lot on 436. I was out there taking a smoke break. WOW pretty impressive. I work with 460v industrial electrics every day... have seen some pretty cool BOOMS, but that one REALLY WAS BIG

I was doing the same thing. Smoke break. It kind of freaked me out.

Ease up! The mets in Tampa are reporting what they are seeing RIGHT NOW and RIGHT NOW it is not taking that NW turn. They are doing more than filling time, my friend. The NHC stuck with GFS and GFDL until yesterday, when we all saw that high digging deeper to the south. The mets weren't buying it. WHO WAS RIGHT?
I don't have the time or the patience right now to deal with these issues. Your eyes are the best source of information. Use yours as you like. It may begin to turn to the NW soon, but it hasn't done so yet, and I believe that Denis Phillips predicted a further south landfall area at 9 and that's exactly what we got at 11pm. Just because you don't work for the NHC doesn't make you any less qualified to deliver the weather AS IT IS OCCURING.
The timing right now is crucial, and it makes a lot of difference when and where the turn to the NW takes place.
Don't take this as a personal attack, because it's not. I'm just stating the facts as they are unfolding. This is very important to a lot of people in the TB area, and I think all they are trying to do is keep us all safe.
We're all tense, but we need to try and keep our heads clear --- even though our eyes want to close.
Stay safe, my friend.

Yes. Charley and Frances have already been plotted. Waiting for Jeanne to finish her journey.
