FEMA and the wireless companies also have portable sites that they will have on standby to deploy after the storm. They call them COWs (Cells On Wheels).

Hurricanes always seem to move in these wobble steps.
But when it gets close to landfall, a wobble can make a difference
of course on where the eye makes landfall.

Usually I just sit back and read but this one I do know about! I went to Port Charlotte after the storm and then living in Vero Beach went through 2 last year. This is what I learned. Have plenty of gas and ice on hand, you will not be able to get it for a couple of days. If you can it will be gone fast. If you want FEMA to reimburse you for a generator do not buy it the day before an event, they will not pay!?? Nextel is used by emergency groups so they may lock you out. We lost two towers on top ot that. Nextel and other companys will give you a break on your payments if you call them! If you have a generator and can run your frig. frozen gatorade is a treat!! Oh, don't forget propane for your gril and a fan. It gets really hot down here! Surviving the next 2 wks after the storm can be the hardest.

Well they have decided to hunker down and stay put. Fear of no gas, high traffic volume and time stuck on the road made their choice. Shelters in Mobile are full also. Thanks for the quick info I was able to pass along to them. Does anyone know if cell phone service will be interrupted in the affected areas?




Main thing will be if the cell phone towers stay up.

Last year with Ivan my brother was able to call me to let me know when he was off the street and off duty and directed to go to the nearest shelter and hunker down...thank goodness.

Thanks for the tip!

Try going to each state's web site.

On the MS web site I found all the storm surge and evac maps for the coastal counties.

Looks like the board lost a style sheet again.

*edit*

As soon as I posted that, it came back - go figure.

Some of you might not be aware of these guys:

They had some oustanding video of Charlie last year. They are hurricane chasers.

Same thing happened to me, only it came back between the initial post and the preview.

Good view of the eye on Tallahasee short-range loop:

http://www.crh.noaa.gov/radar/loop/DS.p19r0/si.kevx.shtml

Looks like the area with very high winds has become even more compacted.

Ignoring all the wobbles still looks to be heading generally in NW direction.

Yep, some of our image servers are down, so I had to shuffle things around. Down to 2 at the moment (From 5). Hope they hold, the main server can't handle it alone.

Well, start by disabling the avatars and smilies. They aren't much on the size-load, but they are definitely the largest amount of requests per page.

An ounce of prevention and all that.

At this speed, it should be a daytime hurricane, which is good. It is far scarier at night... if that is any consolation.

BTW, not to distract, Joe B thinks there are 2 more potential landfalling systems over the next few weeks. He may be hard headed on forecasting landfall of systems; but he has been good on his heads up on potential systems this year.




I have been searching all over for the link to the navy site, anyone have it?
