I would think, and this is just my opinion, that a path right up the middle of Escambia Bay would at least be better than if this thing lined up a little farther west. Right now and up until landfall, winds are blowing from the east. If Dennis were farther west, winds would be blowing straight up the bay the whole time, piling up the water and increasing storm surge.




better for who? not the people to the east! pensacola isn't the only populated area along the coast there!

The eye looks, at this point, like it will pass just west of Escambia Bay, but won't that also bring in the flooding on the back side of the eye. When is high tide? isn't in about an hour?




The worst situation if it occurs. Will pile lots of water into Escambia Bay. I don't think it's really gonna matter whether its high tide or not with a 12-18 foot storm surge predicted

Prayers are with you and all in your area. Do you live on Garcon Point or on the island to the south?

Good luck...are you out on the E/W penisula where Gulf Breeze is located, or are you north of the bridge on 81 in the N/S peninsula between Pensacola and Eglin (I'm guessing the former)?

Just heard on the news that a hotel in Crestview, Fl with 100 or so people in it just had the roof ripped off. Wind gusts and rain in Mobile, but so far so good. I feel bad for the people to the east of me, but have to say I'm still closer than I wanted to be !

To my untrained eye it looks like Dennis will clip Gulf Breeze and goes just west of Escambia Bay.
My heart goes out to each and every one in the path of Dennis and also to the ones further west and those to the east as you too need the prayers. I have a feeling my FIL will be selling his condos at Gulf Shores. The condos were still being repaired and were not livable just yet. I do not wish a hurricane on anyone but I was wishing this area would be spared.

We are in Tiger Point, just East of Gulf Breeze. 1:38 CST and we still have power and cable. It is really kicking up... looks to be gusting 60 or 70.
Judging from the radar, we are going to see the eye.

Anyone else think it's humorous how Heather Tesh on TWC has been constantly saying "eminent" approach when she has meant "imminent"?

It's one thing for my 8 year-old daughter to misuse a word she is unfamiliar with, but it's obvious that the word-a-day approach has failed with that TV personality.

Forget "hunker down", the word of this hurricane season is now "eminent".

The tower didn't hold up at all it seems, they're back to streaming from their SUV. It appears they just parked in a lot, I'd be kinda worried for them.

pressure up to 942 with the last fix. probably a little higher now. actual impact intensity probably an upper cat 3... definitely nothing to take lightly. looking at mapquest.. looks like oriole beach just east of gulf breeze.. in 30 minutes or so. there'll be an intermediate advisory at 3pm eastern; probably gonna be assigned 130mph intensity.
the western inner eyewall of the hurricane is going to move over pensacola in about an hour.. going to be a hell of a lot of damage.
by the way, high tide was at about half past noon cdt. don't think those waters backed out of pensacola bay at all.

We still have power at 1:51 in Tiger Point/Oriole Beach.
Winds are still out of NE so, eyewall has yet to come ashore.
Can't wait...

the fairy godmother has struck. Dennis dropped a category just before landfall; it's essentially Ivan intensity now. not that that is anything approximating good, but it's a hell of a lot better than the storm we had this morning a couple hours after daybreak.
