Quote: The Keys are reopened and people are being sent into this. I know it's not a hurricane, but still. Why not wait a bit longer?
The stronger showers and thunderstorms will produce tropical wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph... cut visibility to under 1 mile in very heavy downpours. In addition... with each round of squalls and showers... rainfall amounts will average a half of an inch. This from Key West NWS.
Well, welcome to normal Florida weather. We don't evacuate everytime a severe thunderstorm heads our way, do we? Please let people get on with their lives. There's no reason to let Ivan hold us hostage. And no, this doesn't mean anyone should let their guard down. We just need to teach and encourage people to act more rational in these situations.
