Here's a clip from the NWS - Ruskin Hazardous Weather this morning:
MARINERS AND RESIDENTS OF WEST CENTRAL AND SOUTHWEST FLORIDA SHOULD KEEP UPDATED ON THE PROGRESS AND FORECASTS OF WILMA...AS CHANGES IN THE FORECAST TRACK ARE POSSIBLE OVER THE NEXT DAY OR SO. CONDITIONS OVER THE COASTAL WATERS WILL BEGIN TO DETERIORATE ON SUNDAY...AND HURRICANE OR TROPICAL STORM CONDITIONS WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY. MARINERS SHOULD PLAN TO REMAIN IN PORT SUNDAY AND MONDAY.
That's an OFFICIAL source. Therefore, I think it is a given for people in Tampa to be a little concerned. Nobody has forgotten Naples or Miami or any other place. It's just an up-in-the air situation right now. Take it with a grain of salt or don't. In the end, no matter where it ends up, most Floridians are going to feel some type of effect from Wilma. Of course, others will feel worse, but with the cold front colliding with a tropical cyclone, it will not be pretty.
