I have no clue whether the information that was sent out early was wrong or not. I have a feeling it will be pretty close to what they issued. We'll find out soon.
Yes, I would check your batteries. Last night I paid no attention to Charley and gave Bonnie my undivided attention and today I'm doing careful observations of both storms. Timing is crucial and although Bonnie might not be a big storm, she has plenty of moisture. Charley, of course, is the one I'm keeping a double eye on since he's closer to Florida than Bonnie.
Then you think of all the rivers in Hillsborough/Pinellas and other rivers that are at flood level and even if we just get by with a brush of Charley/Bonnie, the city of Tampa may be the next floating city.
LI Phil...I wasn't trying to be flippant. I was just trying to figure out what happened. Maybe it was an intern, who knows. But I am very serious about both storms.
And I think that we will have Hurricane Charley at 11pm. Amen.
