Re: Jeanne Inland, Still Moving West to West Northwest

I just returned from Indian Rocks Beach, on the western tip of Pinellas County. The wind is gusting to hurricane force! I recorded wind speeds to 75mph while I was out there. The driving sand was very painful. The wind was so strong I could lean back into it and it would hold me up. I also noted some roof damage and many objects blowing across the roadway.

This is far worst than Frances was for Pinellas County. In fact, these are probably the worst conditions in Pinellas County since Elena in 85. Currently, the pressure at my location has dropped to 29.15in. The winds are easily gusting to 65mph inland in Pinellas County. I am surprised I still have power.
