Here are the obs from my weather station just north of St. Petersburg in Pinellas County.
Wind: N at 16 MPH Pressure: 29.79 In. / 1009 Mb. Total Rain: 0.12 In.
I posted this observation to show just how compact this storm actually is. I am just a little over 50 miles from the center of the storm right now and I am not experiencing anything close to tropical storm force winds. Additionally, I have received hardly any rainfall. This compact storm reminds me of Bret (Cat 4) several years ago that hit southern Texas. People were amazed at how small of an area received significant damage.
My prayers are with all those who took the brunt of Charley.
God Bless, Ronn
