Frances Approaching Florida
      Sat Sep 04 2004 06:40 PM

Jim Williams (In Delray Beach south of West Palm Beach) and his Hurricane City Broadcast from 8PM till 11PM -- Link to Real Audio -- updated!

8PM
Pressure drop corrected to 957.

Original:

Hurricane Frances is approaching Florida tonight... slowly. Many are without power. Damage reports have been filed.

Damage Reports from Hurricane City

It has been reduced to a strong category 2 storm, which is generally good news. It has only a small window to strengthen, which is right now. So I don't think it will. It will cause flooding, and some damage, but mostly Frances fatigue to the folks along the Florida coast who will have to deal with the dark and wind and rain for a good 24 hours or so.

Sorry for the short article, but this is a topic for your responses tonight. Stay safe in Florida. If you hear anything that you may have a question about or you think folks would be interested in, add a comment..


Hurricane Local Statements for Weather Offices in:

Melbourne (East Central Florida) - Long Range Radar Loop
Miami (South Florida) - Long Range Radar Loop
Key West (Florida Keys)Long Range Radar Loop
Tampa Bay (West Central Florida)Long Range Radar Loop

Jacksonville (North Florida)[/url] - Long Range Radar Loop

Local county by county information will no longer be updated unles there is breaking news here -- it's just impossible to keep up because of the size of the area under Hurricane Watch. Use the links in the last article to view county emergency management webpages. Florida Disaster.org is the state em page, with links to locals as well.

Definitely more to come later...

** SITE NOTE ** This website is receiving way beyond record traffic today, it will be slow, it will go down ocasionally, but should be back up shortly when that happens. We've done everything we can to help this along short of dumping zillions into bandwidth and hardware to keep it going. Apologies in advance.

Jim Williams over at Hurricane City will be doing live broadcasts about Hurricane Frances startiing tonight at 8PM EST.
