Justin -- I hate to pull out Andrew as a comparable, but there is no skirting the damage that it caused in Miami. The graphics and stories out of there, even to this day, are frightening and amazing.
While Ivan is not as tight and compact -- and thankfully as strong -- as Andrew, the damage will be intense and spread out over a larger area. There is a chance at some weakening due to shallower waters and increasing dry air, but this storm has defied those predictions before. Strengthening probably won't happen, though. For everyone's sake, this thing needs to spin down.
