Spoke to mom in Vero yesterday morning. She does have some damage. However, I've been trying to call her since. I'm starting to get slightly concerned. The rest of my family evac. to Orlando and I haven't had any contact with them since yesterday morning either.

A reminder; phone lines may be down or there may be sporadic service disruptions to land lines and satelite connections. Give it a while before trying to call, I just got back my land line service after being down since the early morning hours and I haven't lost cell phone service. Good luck!

I know the phone lines are down. But I was able to reach her on her cell phone before. Sometimes it rings then goes to voicemail and other times it goes straight to voicemail.

Checking in from the Boynton Beach / Lantana area. We headed to the Keys but those who stayed said it sounded worse than Frances but it didn't last anywhere near as long. More trees down in my area but we never lost power. Gotta love those underground (house / neighborhood built in 1995+) power lines.

My mod & dad's (Lady Lake) and sister's places (Ocala) got it pretty hard too. Mainly downed trees and no power.

No more. We have filled our quota for the next 10-20 years.

Well if she has no power,,then she cant recharge her phone,,that was my problem with my cell. So she probably cant charge it to get messages. Unless she thinks about going to somewhere or someone who does have power to charge it......... just a thought of what could be wrong.

Hi Joe! Perhaps you can answer a question for me. How can your fellow Americans help all of you in Florida? Everyone I know has given at their own churches. Is there a better way that we can help? Please post your recommendation, and I'll help spread the word. BTW, I'm married to an accountant .

During Charley we lost cell phone service - and then it was intermittent, so maybe that's what's happening with your mom. Our land line just came back late last night altho our cells were not affected this time. Good luck and hope all is well.

Unfortunately my in-laws, who live nearby and are elderly, had their utilities recently put underground - and they are without power this time, altho with Charley and Frances they had power. Guess undergrounding is not necessarily a panacea.... but I do wish they would do it any way as it seems they do better most of the time!

Looking over the carribean basin I see a vort max near 13N and 77.5W moving slowly to the west near 7mph. Sorry to say this folks but this could be the start of a better organzied area of low pressure that might form off Nicaragua during the next 2-3 days. If it does then a TD might form by Thurs or Fri if they send recon down there by then. For now its just a vortex and nothing to get too worried about for the next couple of days.

Yeah, right! I'll belive that when I see it.

As for the mom....she does have a car charger. I know she's fine, but I'm just concerned because she's down there all by herself. I don't know when the rest of my family is coming home from Orlando. I can't get intouch with them either.

I live right on the cost (1/2 mile from the Strongest Frances gust in Tampa Bay @74 mph) Fences are down and trees are down. Light signs were blown away and almost everyone is powerless. Hope we can get a few weeks to clean up the debris. Think it would be a good time to buy a house? I would be willing to bet property values will drop around here. I have had 5 tropical systems within 400 miles of my place this year. jeez....

thank god for laptops.....

Holly Hill checking in......(just north of Daytona and south of Ormond Beach) We faired pretty well, only lost power for 3 hours, compared to 6 days with both Charlie and Frances. A few more roof shingles came off. I feel very blessed...my throughts and prayers go to others down south that did not fair so well. Thanks to all for this site.....it has been helped me and I'm sure others through this crazy season.

Liz

Thank you Phil and Joe. I printed out a copy of the Florida Red Cross chapters and their addresses. I'd like to urge others to help our Florida neigbors. They definitely NEED our help.

      #32989 - Mon Sep 27 2004 01:52 PM

Skeeter has put up two new maps on the front page showing the paths of Charley, Frances & Jeanne...with detail on Polk County.

Skeet, great maps...are you planning to do one for street level?

A vort max Scottsvb? What exactly does that mean? and west means west right? Not north right? I have gotten better at grasping the Cape Verde storms but the ones off Nicaragua? Where do they go? What type of storms are the "home brews" that LI Phil just mentioned?

In other words...isn't Florida done yet?

a vort max is just an area of turning in the atmosphere. the problem storms this year have originated in the atlantic, but later in the year the western caribbean becomes a staging ground for storms. the home brew phil refers to is just a storm that develops due to the pattern near north america, not so much a wave propagating across that atlantic. hope that helps.. if the caribbean feature starts taking shape i'm sure there will be more explanations from the folks here... -HF
