I think he mentioned he lives near Tiger Point -- just east of Gulf Breeze.

Judging only from the tv video, this storm does not look as bad as Ivan.
Anyone else get that impression.
Hope I'm right

The close up radar on the TV showed the tiny tiny area of the eye that was still open (which looked to be only maybe a half-dozen city blocks wide) just go over east of Oriole Beach in the area where the strip of land is narrowest. I think this is right where Pcola lives...heck he's probably looking out the window not staring at a computer screen!

I hope he isn't looking out the window. Very, very dangerous to do!

ya Dr Lyons is probably right about the more intense NE winds lifting off of sea level. Destin doesn't look bad at all.

I watched Ivan from tv and it didn't look bad until the next afternoon, LONG way to go for many poor folks.

in terms of extent, you're probably right. this storm had a small, tight inner core that was weakening as it made landfall. the extensive damage path will be more limited for that reason. of course, footage ended from around gulf breeze/pensacola as the storm came ashore.. and i haven't seen anything from navarre. milton is getting rocked right now.. atmore and brewton alabama will get it around 4-5pm central.

They are saying on TWC that there is a lot of lightning around the eye.. that's unusual, isn't it? I have been through 2 eyes (Supertyphoon Pamela on Guam in 1976 and Charley last year) and I know there was no lightning.

I concur....MSNBC showed a real close zoomed in radar signature view and it was VERY clear where the eye has crossed onto land. The eye went right over Tiger Point Golf & Country Club at roughly the intersection of US 98 & Route 281 (Gulf Breeze Parkway & Garcon Pt. Brg.). I shudder to think of what will be left of that country club.

That's almost exactly in the area where PCola was posting from, I believe. Odds are very good that he's without power; the reporters from the area on MSNBC were saying that most of that area is without power right now, so I wouldn't be surprised.

When you come across the Pensacola Bay Bridge (Three Mile Bridge) you come into Gulf Bereze Proper. That's where I live. Garcon Point / Tiger Point is about 10 miles east of GB Proper. Navarre is about 12 miles east of Garcon Point. Hurricane Ivan wreaked havoc on Tiger Point. Especially soundfront homes. Jim Cantore is at GB Hospital which is on the fringe of GB Proper. GB Proper is less than 3 miles in length along hwy 98.

Hopefully he's got the windows boarded up and isn't watching his roof peel off. If he had 98 mph winds, he definitely lost power.

The golf course was still under repair from Ivan.

FYI, here in Atlanta, the first main rain band from Dennis is starting to pull into the area. In the past 30 minutes here in South Atlanta, the weather radio has been going crazy with T-Storm Warnings as well as Tornado warnings.....

You know it's a bad day.....when you wake up and see Jim Cantore and Geraldo Rivera broadcasting from your backyard....literally!

Yes it went right over the bridge. You could see it even on the 19:29Z frame of the Tallahassee short range radar if you looked very closely. That was the left side of the eyewall. I think even though it was clouded over the right side of the eyewall was between Woodlawn Beach and Navarre. Seems odd only about 8 mi wide?

Pamela was bad...my family and I were on Okinawa when Guam was hit before coming our way...at least being off the islands we can get away from these storms when we need too.

They are showing sustained winds in the 40s around the eyewall on TWC. How is that posssible?

I was wondering about the atypical lightning as well... I have not seen any such thing in my hurricane experiences.

Did anyone see Anderson Cooper on CNN a few moments ago? What a gust! The guys around him are lucky to be okay.
