Anderson Cooper of CNN just had some unreal live video where they had to take cover in Pensacola.. Trees and Roofs shredded.

Yeah, MSNBC just showed an awesome cross section of the storm as it was coming on shore. They took the radar image and turned it on it's side and moved through the storm like it was a CAT scan. Wow! We could have somefun with that program!

I'm wondering how the Garcon Point Bridge held up. It this a newer bridge? Was it damaged at all during Ivan?

CNN and Anderson Cooper just show a large hotel sign(and a tree) get ripped apart near Pcola bay, right in front of them live. This is Anderson's first direct hit(He missed all three canes last year by miles) and he's doing pretty good for a "normal" reporter.

They lost one reporter feed near the center of the eye, so hopefully she is ok.


Edit: Right now Anderson is in the eye(4PM)

The Garcon Point Bridge is fairly new. I think 1999 or 2000. Maybe a little older than that. It did great during Ivan. I drive it once a week to my milton office. The only problem is that there is a 3.00 toll each way.

I don't know... some of these news reports are a little silly. The two guys on CNN are pretending that they are in the eye... You guys do realize that this is nothing even remotely close to what going through a major hurricane is like?

EDIT: To be fair... I saw those guys position and they are close. Some good footage. It still doesn't do the storm justice though.

High peak windgust report from land was from a small station in Navarre Beach, 131.4 MPH winds.

With the info blackout that happens when a storm passes we really won' know until tomorrow. Maybe parts this evening.

Well when you are in a middle of a hurricane, Reporter mode to just speculate kicks in harder. When it gets that calm, you think center.

Now if this was TWC....then we have a problem. Speaking of which, I switch over and see Dustin, Fl still going through hell.

I think they're getting a little giddy...

On our non cable tv we can watch local channels - showing golf, car racing, movies or the Tour de France. Even HD secondary channels are showing local radar (even tho when there's a hurricane in the gulf our weather is always exactly the same - hot and dry!). Last year, the secondary channels showed hurricane coverage. Not this year.

But wait! ABC broke into their sports show to show a couple of minutes of Dennis update! Looks like wherever they are, 2 miles from Pensacola Beach, they're the only people around. Good.

Stay safe!

From ABCNews.com

Quote:

National Hurricane Center Director Max Mayfield said the distinction between a 3 and a 4 should matter little to those in Dennis' path.

"It's a little bit like the difference between getting run over by an 18-wheeler and a freight train. Neither prospect is good," he said.

OK I am trying to understand that data. It appears the wind came first from around NE to E to SE as the eye passed near, with wind increasing then decreasing, with wind gusts as high as just over 130mph from the ESE...so these were the winds from the NE quadrant of the storm that had the high gusts.

It looked like the sustained winds were around 90mph for a small period of time.

Is this right?

TWC reported cane possibly falling apart..

There showing that cause right now thats the worse damage report. CNN also showed the Crestview Hotel no roof, possible on fire also.

No they were close... and I didn’t see some of the more dramatic footage when I wrote that… while it doesn’t do the storm justice, I will admit that it is better than most of the other stuff coming out. Especially considering that it is coming from a normal media outlet.

I gave up on CNN after all of four minutes. "Look at the FEAR on their faces!" I was getting tired from rolling my eyes so much.
