9PM Center of Charley over downtown Orlando. Orlando International Airpot (MCO) reported a windgust at 105MPH.
Original Update Quick new topic. Hurricane Charley was upgraded to a Category 4 system with 145, and it has made landfall north of Ft. Myers
This brings the track over or near Olrando and east central Florida.
The site is overloaded now, and we'll run as best we can. Folks in the path would do better to listen to local media at this point. Feel free to ask questions and let us know what's happening in your area.
For us, the first rainband from Charley is approaching New Smyna Beach now, and I'm overlooking the halifax river, and south causeway and see the huge clouds looming in the west.
And there are two new depressions in the gulf, and one of them we will want to watch for next weekend....
* site note * our automatic tracking map has been disabled temporarily due to a crash issue with the map generation program. Due to high usage, the site will be slow. We are hitting records well beyond Floyd numbers.
