WINK reporter here in town says she has been out trying to acess damage, but can't tell what's from Charley and what's from Jeanne. Bev, are you surprised? This poor little town. Also WINK just had a phone call from a family here riding it out in a mobile home. They asked why he didn't seek shelter and he said he couldn't afford the gas to get to Manatee County. I think that's why so many people didn't evacuate around the state. We've all spent our vacation money long ago!!

Oh yeah, and my husband took my children from Northern Lake County to my dad's in Tampa. Please don't let them get hit over there. For those of you that are kind of expecting it to go more that way, what do you think the winds will be like in Lutz? It's like Jeanne saw them go there and is aiming at them.

After taking a jog north, it appears to be going due west again, if it is going to miss the GOM, it better start taking a NW or even a NNW turn very soon.

From the NWS

DAMAGING WIND GUSTS FROM HURRICANE JEANNE ARE AFFECTING HIGHLANDS EASTERN POLK EASTERN DESOTO AND EASTERN HARDEE COUNTIES. DURING THE PAST HOUR WIND GUSTS HAVE RANGED FROM 94 MPH IN SEBRING TO 50 MPH AT THE SKYWAY BRIDGE. OTHER GUSTS AT MOST OBSERVATION SITES OVER SOUTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL FLORIDA HAVE BEEN ABOVE 40 MPH DURING THE PAST HOUR. VERY HEAVY RAIN IS FALLING IN CENTRAL POLK AND HARDEE COUNTIES AND WILL CONTINUE DURING THE NEXT HOUR UNTIL 5:20AM EDT

The Center Of Jeanne... Just North Of Lake Okeechobee... Continues Moving West Northwest. As The Large Eye Of Jeanne Passes Through Highlands And Southern Polk Counties...The Winds Will Lighten Considerably But Then The Winds Will Rapidly Increase From The South On The Eastern Eyewall. It Is Important To Remain Inside During Passage Of The Eye As Winds Can Increase Rapidly And Darkness May Conceal Hidden Dangers Such As Downed Power Lines And Debris.

Sunrise is around 7:30am.

TS Warnings have been extended all the way to Destin; the warning and track regime are very similar to Frances through 72hr with the 5am advisory. Hurricane warnings have been issued for the west coast from the Suwanee River south to Englewood. They expect the center to pass very near the Tampa Bay area later on in the day.

Good luck through the night, everyone, and here's to a long stretch of benign days ahead after this storm.

Outer bands starting to break up a little. Eye is having less definition. Every little bit helps at this point. But, for some reason known only to God, THE POWER IS STILL ON. According to WINK, it's off in town. I'm about 13 miles south. Have turned up the TV so I don't hear as much outside. So looking forward to dawn.

Heavy rain and gusts my guess about 60 MPH. Fortunately still with electricity (my apartment complex grid is underground). Things have gotten stronger in the past hour.

Nice.....no one seems to know! Actually the nature coast. We are about 60 miles north of Tampa...the sort of pie wedge looking county.
