The damned tree is leaning over and sneaking up on me like the topiary monsters in Stephen King's The Shining movie.

Just had first 2 second power outage. When the real thing comes, I hope it takes FPL less than a week to restore.

Wow...crawler on bottom of Channel 7 says officials in the keys estimate that 90% of the residents STAYED! Crazy folks....and that only an estimated 3000 people in the lower keys have power.

First post for me ...Looks like landfall is imminent. I'm in Coral Gables at the U, and the gusts are becoming stronger and lasting longer. Resigned to getting a whipping from Wilma.

Getting pounded here in Naples. Looks like we are not going to get the relief of the eye. North eyewall hitting us hard.

I am so out of Florida after this one...

For future reference. Tell the Power Companies to shut off the grid at landfall...it saves a lot of transformers, and other things too!

I gets kind of Hot indoors after they shut it off...but it's much faster being restored.

And easier on the nerves...No Explosions

      #62836 - Mon Oct 24 2005 06:30 AM

Pressure dropping very fast, 29.15", a drop of .13" in the past hour. Winds now peaking constantly 40-45 m.p.h. gusts. Power beginning to flicker too.

Hurricane activity is increasing and the Red Sox are choking.

Quick check of the "who's online"
580++ online

Looks like most of the South Florida members are still with us!

BTW...was that a NE jog I saw on TWC with Steve Lyons? Looked real strange.

Oh boy this is going to be BAD for the Keys, Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. Why would anyone in thier right mind stay in the Keys?

My report from NW Broward is here: http://flhurricane.com/cyclone/showflat....SSID=#Post62834

Like everyone else I'll update as long as the power holds up. I'm 2 blocks from an FPL substation with underground utilities so I'm praying that means my power will stay on longer and get back up sooner. Super job with all the info from this site - kudos to the NHC and the mets around here, other then a slightly south landfall and freak ablity to keep her Cat 3 Wilma has done what everyone said she would. Now to watch the mess play out in my own backyard thankfully given her speed this should be over by late afternoon and the nice cool break is coming.

I am near the northern end of this mess. Here in Ormond Beach we currently are having 24 sustained with gusts of 36, extremely heavy rain. It will get worse before it gets better. To our southly neighbors, hang in there and stay safe.

Great site and info, guys.

Just SW of Lauderdale and it is getting nasty. Transformers were popping at about 5 in 15 sec as I went out to secure my dish. We had 1/3 of our trees down with Katrina but the dish held strong. It was already down at 6am with Wilma.

I am afraid much of SE Florida hasn't taken this seriously and will have a rude awakening, figurative and literal. About 50% of businesses had shutters up, but only 15-20% of homes from what I can tell. Everyones' excuse was "It's coming from the west, it's going north, cat.1, etc."

My boss even said "maybe I'll see you tomorrow."

Hope everyone else is safe. Thanks again for such an informative discussion.

In Highlands as well. One of my concerns now is we've had so much rain all night that more trees will go over once the heavier winds arrive because everything is so saturated. It is starting to deteriorate here. On radar, Some of those clouds to the north of the eye look really nasty now.

MaryAnn, and others North of Wilma.

I hoe that you have seen the worst of her. However...if she makes an early turn she could run just off of the East Florida Coast...Just a heads up.

Where is Fred and BamBam when you need them?

Pummeling in Palmetto Bay, FL [Re: MikeC]
      #62844 - Mon Oct 24 2005 06:43 AM

The wind train is nearing. We're getting a good pummeling this morning. So far, no substantive damage, and we have power. Praise God!

We've lost cable here, but still have power, phone, and DSL! This site is wonderful. Much nicer than the weather radio I'll have as my only source once the power goes out...
