Quote: I think it's important to point out that we aren't out of the woods yet in South Florida, folks. People need to keep off the roads today, if possible. There are tell several high velocity thunderstorms with winds in excess of 40mph and higher gusts. These can bump and shake high profile trucks!
The southwest FL coast can keep expecting heavy thunderstorms for the next 3-4 hours at least. Southeast FL is relatively clear now except for some high wind gusts and spotty showers, but once Ernesto moves north a bit, those showers currently offshore will wrap around the center and come onshore with some force. I'd give it a couple of hours, maybe three. Again, staying inside today and making it a "watch TV, eat snacks, read a book" day.
Keep in mind that most tropical cyclone-related death happen after the storm. Watch out for any downed trees, powerlines, etc. Keep off the roads as driving in high winds is dangerous. You all know the drill.... just spread the word because you know that now that the media has nothing to talk about they'll go back to national news and ignore the conditions still around.
Josh looking at the radar I agree with you. I came into the office after calling the hotline and realized we were open, I am surprised many employers didn't hold off until this afternoon to bring folks back in to the office. My car was swaying from side to side on 595 this morning.
