I certainly didn't intend my post to mean that he shouldn't evacuate, as flooding is a serious problem. Heck, here in Tampa we got more flooding from Frances than we ever did with Charley, and I saw with my very own 2 eyes how fast that water rose near downtown Tampa and of course, the elderly people who had to evacuate in Hillsborough County because of a break in the wall and then again when the Peace River overflowed and flooded so many people. With all the rain we've had (including a good 3"+ last night, maybe more) you could throw a puffball at a tree and it would probably fall over. I was only answering how far he should go and I based that on what they told people here in Tampa with Charley and the 2.5million people with Frances. Sorry for any misunderstanding.
