From Pinellas County

We are starting to feel tropical storm force winds here in Pinellas County. My location is now experiencing winds in excess of 40mph. The pressure is 29.35in and falling. We have not had significant rainbands yet, but the main core of storm is approaching from the east, and I expect hurricane force gusts in one or two hours. The lowest pressure from Frances I recorded was 29.03in, so we might get lower than that this time.

On another note. I awoke at 5:30am this morning to discover that Pinellas County emergency management just finally issued a mandatory evac for mobile home residents. Why did they not issue this yesterday? This is a serious lapse by emergency management and indicates how most people have downplayed Jeanne's impact on this area.
