Outer Eyewall taking over? [Re: mcgowanmc]
      #82412 - Tue Aug 19 2008 10:24 PM

Heya Everyone,

I've noticed something on radar the last couple of hours that I thought worth mentioning and pointing out: It seems that the inner eyewall is decaying and an outer eyewall becoming dominant. If this is the case, and not simply an artifact of the radar, then that could help maintain Fay's strength as at least part of the eye would be over water.

Of course if that is the case then the eye would be very large, and that would slow any recovery by the storm. Any thoughts?

Is anyone around? Just wondering how Ormond Beach is doing. I know nothing about hurricanes except what I see on the news online. I don't have TV channels or a stereo, lame, I know. I have a husband there going to school. Would love some reassurance since I can't reach him on his cell.

Ok, thank you! I'm just worried because he is staying in our 5th wheel trailer while going to school and hopefully graduating next Wed.
I appreciate you putting me at ease.
