In my own humble opinion - you do what you feel most comfortable with...this is a storm over 700 miles wide - that is nothing to play around with at all. As far as intensity goes - I watched Charlie ramp up from a Cat 1/2 to a 4 in a matter of hours. I live inland and am currently under a TS Warning. Orlando is now under a Hurricane Warning. I would not say you are over reacting at all - just concerned & right fully so. I went to get some extra supplies at Publix today and the gas station right next to it was turning people away. Go with your gut. Do what you think is right for you and your family. If nothing else, you'll have some extra supplies. Even the NHC can't predict intensity - and it's not that far away. Stay safe!
