Some of the best advice I've seen anywhere online tonight.

Make sure you have prescriptions, batteries fully charged, gas in the tank and money in your pocket.

Having a plan is better than running around in panic mode on Sunday.

The cone is large still on the 5th day..and 4th... yes it's a broken record but one worth playing again and again.

Saw Bill Read before the season started and he emphasized this over and over... have a plan, follow the plan. Do not panic at the last minute based on what neighbors tell you or rumors. Get a plan, stick to the plan. For advice on getting a plan there are sites online, hurricane maps in Publix and talk to old timers who live in your neighborhood if you are new to the area who can tell you how the area takes a strong storm.

This is a shutter event in South Florida if it continues on it's current path... not a buy twinkies and beer sort of tropical storm and a free day off from work. This is serious.

And, yes it is making a turn on the 5th day but where will that turn take it? Up the east coast, across the state to the west coast or though the straits?

By Saturday Morning we should be beyond the wide cone and those of us in the cone zone will need to act fast but with a plan...

Check your shelter for pets policy and condos on top floors have higher winds and they are only as good as the weakest link. If you have a neighbor who was out of town and on the 11th floor didn't lock his balcony sliding glass door before he left town last week it will provide a point of entry for winds that could snake through the condo and create havoc for neighbors in a major cane. If so.. find your hallways or exits and obviously if you are in an evac zone, evacuate.. if not, follow the advice of those in the know and the NHC.

Remember knowledge is power...
