I spent this past weekend in Polk County and couldnt believe all of the tarps on the roofs. The worst part is that many people are in the midst of fixing the roofs themselves. That makes for quite a bit of flying debris.

Thank you, Clark. You're always such a great help!

I'm gonna bet that TS Cindy will be Hurricane Cindy at either 5pm or 11pm. So I'll go sit and play with the kids until the 5:00pm comes out.

Also...there are so many fences still laying in yards; trees that still haven't been removed, damaged scoreboards at the various local baseball/football parks, etc. It'll make a HUGE mess....IF..and that's a big IF right now, it effects any of us here in Central Florida.

I don't want Dennis to hit central florida, we certainly don't need it. Even more, it seems that when the first one comes, and bunch of other ones come. Don't need another 4 this season.

Dennis still a little ragged but impressive and very symmetrical outflow. If it slows down, could really blossom.

i'm hearing that Dennis has a high potential of becoming a cat.3 storm and making the first hurricane to landfall in 2005. I am also hearing it will be a florida panhandle storm. What are everyones thoughts on this?

Trin - Yeah, you should see parts of Polk County too. People just assume because we are in the middle of the state that we don't get much but,...it still looks like a war zone in areas. I go down through Sebring a lot too, so I know what you are talking about. Not to mention, as you probably know in Miami, we don't need the rain.

At least we've had a few days to dry out lately.

If Dennis stays well enough out in the Gulf, Polk county should be ok.
Not sure why all the blue tarps are still up. In some cases, I think people
are just not bothering to fix their roofs. Maybe they like blue. who knows.

Katie,
Have you noticed an increased presence of county and city trucks today?? In Osceola there is a lot of drain cleaning going on and storm debris that hs been left alone since September is being picked up. Humm

With the last few frames on visible, it sure looks like Dennis is trying to fire up storms around the center.

Too early-way too early to state where it will hit. The models do seem to point to a GOM event; but that can change by Thursday.

Still a lot of blue roofs here in Lee County as well... I'm STILL waiting for my soffits and gutters to be replaced.. the earliest I can even get somebody to come out is in mid August, which will mark a year since Charley.

Re: Question concerning the time it takes to process FSU model [Re: Clark]
      #38147 - Tue Jul 05 2005 04:06 PM

Clark
I have a question if you do not mind answering. It appears that it takes almost 6 hours for the FSU computers to process the forecast model. Do you know the reason for this time lag. Or, more importantly, is it because FSU has not been given enough $$ and does not have state of the art computers to run the model....

Wingman - yes, actually, I was driving through Eagle Lake yesterday and they have put sandbags around the drainage....strange huh? Maybe just being a head of the game for a rainy summer? Who knows.

As far as the blue roofs are concerned. I don't think it is a matter of liking the blue or even not bothering to do it,...it is just that it is almost impossible to find someone who can do it now. Like my dad down in Jensen Beach, he is trying to find contractors that can renovate his new condo now but they are booked out a few months doing hurricane repairs which are in my book, more important than a renovation.

Off topic -
I work in the Building Department of a local city. I have been hearing on the city radio all day - all public works people are cleaning all storm drains and lowering the levels on the City renention ponds

In response to the City's working a head of the storms. I think it is a great idea. Last year so many of them weren't expecting all that we got and the drains couldn't handle it nor could the city. So, being on top of things will make the season run smoother this year. Better to be prepared than not!

Hats off to city officials.

Dennis's development is unique, characteristic of very strong storms. I remember tracking supertyphoon dianne in the west pacific last year, and it almost magically developed bands out of thin air in the shape of idealistic tropical cyclone. Must be a by-product of strong pressure drop over a symmetrical area; almost like Dennis. The Dennis/cindy track(s) kind of remind me of a bonnie/charley situation to a lesser degree. The poleward axis's of the subtropical ridge will maintain the speed (16kts NWestward). The only inhibiting factor will once again be its proximity to land.

5:00 out on Cindy.

At 4 PM CDT...2100z...the center of Tropical Storm Cindy was located near latitude 28.2 north... longitude 90.3 west or about 95 miles... 155 km... southwest of the mouth of the Mississippi River.

Cindy is moving toward the north near 14 mph ...22 km/hr...and a gradual turn to the north-northeast is expected during the next 24 hours. On this track the center will be near the southeast Louisiana coast later tonight.

Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph...with higher gusts. No significant changes in strength are forecast prior to landfall.
