So glad the boards back up. Hope you guys down there say safe. Dont mean to scare ya, but she's just begun. You guys have at least 8 to 10 or even more hours of hurricane force winds. Stay safe and keep us updated, but keep safe, thats the number one priority. Looks like the folks in the Central and Western Fl Panhandle should pay attention as we may have a strong landfalling TS/minimal hurricane Labor Day. Anybody have any thoughts on that?

pressure at 959mb [Re: AgentB]
      #24044 - Sat Sep 04 2004 05:35 PM

the last hurricane recon report pegged the pressure at 959mb at 2041Z

I like how they refuse to call the thing that looks like an eye, instead calling it: "BANDING FEATURE 60NM DIAMETER"

Got that off of the NHC site. It looks like it was about 15 min. before the 5:00 report came out so I would guess they didn't have time to put it in . It should be in the 8:00 report,though.

A tornado warning has just been issued for Seminole County...where I live. Another feeder band is getting ready to roll in from Volusia County. Weather officials notice a vorticity in the band and have issued the warning for us. As of right now, the band is still just north of me. I am experiencing a light rain and gusty winds....nothing severe at this point...

Thanks. I just found it too. Some strong winds just started pushing through my location here in Ormond. Looks like it's about to start pouring here as well.

We are holed up in a hotel on Tampa Bay and just had a feeder band hit us. It tore off one of the covers on the air vents on the roof below us. I can not imagine what it is like where our house is. I hope everyone is water tight.!

DEPARTMENT STORES IN THE COASTAL COMMUNITIES.

THIS EVENING STRONG RAINBANDS WILL MOVE ONSHORE ACROSS SOUTHERN
BREVARD COUNTY NEAR MELBOURNE BEACH TO PALM BAY TO BLUE CYPRESS LAKE
AND FORT DRUM. THESE BANDS MAY PRODUCE STRONG AND DAMAGING WINDS
WITH GUSTS TO 65 TO 75 MPH. MANY REPORTS OF TREES BEING UPROOTED AND
SIGNS BEING BLOWN DOWN HAVE ALSO BEEN RECEIVED. POWER POLES ALONG
STATE ROUTE A-1-A NEAR SOUTH PATRICK HOUSING HAVE TOPPLED OR WERE

That must mean that they have actually heard from someone on San Salvador, up until now there had been no contact at all, not even ham radio contact. Same with Cat Island.

I have been hearing from the Bahamas via Sat Phones since yesterday, including San Sal and Cat.

Please see my posts in the "Disaster Forum". I had been posting regularly but there didn't seem to be any interest in Bahama damage so I quit posting.

Survived Charley at Cat 4 under a staircase. Won't do that again. I watch SW Florida and Abaco primarily.

Must be the calm before the storm in Sebring, finally getting a misty rain and still breezy. She's moving in though, huh?

I'm out by UCF, moderate rain for the last 30 minutes, breezy--but calling it windy would be pushing it. Will report in again as things deteriorate.

Keep posting, So. Merrit Island. House in Satellite Beach and I'm so worried about it. Appreciate your posts. I'd rather know-even if it's bad- than this damnable waiting and watching.

Maybe picked up some forward speed? Not much, but just maybe. Any kind of movement would be good news right now.

I believe that what is considered to be the inner rainband is just moving up the coast by West Palm Beach. I tried to get some windreadings out there, but several weatherstations are not reporting......anymore......does that mean...... ?
