Can or does anyone have any information from South Brevard County? (Melbourne).
Thanks Jeanine

Marknole, it looks as if the NHC hasn't posted hurricane warnings north of Suwanee, so they seem confident that the pass over Apalachee Bay won't give it any go juice.

I'm in Jacksonville, and the local guys here don't seem to be aware of the lower SST in that part of the Gulf. They need to log into here every once in awhile.

If you hear anything about Melbourne, please post. I can't reach my son on Dairy Road, west of downtown. It doesn't look good on the news.

They just said on WFTV that part of US 1 in far southern Brevard was washed away. About 500 yards of roadway.

Matlon the news is going a great job down in Jax. We get the local out of 4 and 12 channels here in Waycross GA. JAX and Daytona are like second homes to us and our thoughts are will all of you. We have had winds here just under 20 mph this morning. It's coming in squalls though. This morning just after six we had heavy rain and wind then a calm for about an hour now the winds are picking up and the sky's are gray but again no rain as of yet. They have not closed schools for our county (ware) as of right now. With Frances we missed two days so the roads could be repaired. Lots of rural roads for the buses. Stay safe everyone.

I'm using the radar loops from Tampa, Jax., and Melborne. I'm beginning to wonder if Jeanne is even going to reach the GOM? Seems to be a lot more N than W lately.

Winds have really picked up here. I am getting my readings for the Daytona Airport. Sustained 41 gusts just shy of 60.

Agree with Jax--they haven't mentioned much about affect should she hit the GOM. I'm in Jax, too, and we're just starting to get a few gusts. Talked to my parents a little while ago in Ocala, and it's starting to pick up there ("not as bad as Frances, yet...")

That's what I see too. Was just going to ask if anyone else was seeing the same thing. Just got another power flicker.

Are my eyes playing tricks on me.
Look at this radar loop
http://www.intellicast.com/Local/USLocal...mp;prodnav=none

It looks like it almost stopped on the last three frames.

There are some damage photos from fort pierce on www.orlandosentinel.com

We just had our first flicker. I heard a transformer go somewhere.

The wind is almost stopped between gusts, but the gusts are becoming more frequent. Maybe 35mph.

Sure not like the steady wind we got from Frances.

Edit: Just had a solid 40 mph gust...

EditEdit: Just had a good 45 mph to 50mph gust. Lights flickering. I'll probably switch to generator pretty soon...

Re: Orlando status? [Re: clyde w.]
      #32733 - Sun Sep 26 2004 03:31 PM

Hello everyone! To you guys in East Orlando.... I just rode around in Rescue 85 through StoneyBrook, near Eastwood and there is minimal damage. I think I saw one screen enclosure blowing around and alot of the small trees are laying down. Nothing major. From what I have seen, this part of Orange County is in pretty good shape. I still haven't gotten any sleep. I was the station watch officer so I had to maintain the security of the station and monitor the radio's and phones all night. I am so tired but Jeanne is making such a racket I can't sleep.
OK, I'm going to go close my eyes now........

Waves crashing against the shoreline of Lake Monroe are threatening to wash away large sections of U.S. Highway 17-92, west of downtown Sanford.

Authorities closed the road between Central Florida Regional Hospital and Interstate 4 after the water began eating away sections of the asphalt.

"I think there is a pretty good possibility of the lane closest to the lake being undermined," said Seminole County Fire Chief Terry Schenk.

About 10 a.m., Schenk clocked sustained winds along the lakefront at 38 mph with gusts to 50 mph.

Along much of the area immediately west of the hospital, the water has washed away the ground between the seawall and the roadway. In two places it has already washed away portions of the asphalt.

Scattered power outages are causing some problems in Seminole County. At least 27 intersections have traffic lights that are not operating, mostly because of power outages.

Shelters at Geneva Elementary School in Geneva and Millenium Middle School in Sanford were operating on generators, and a special needs shelter at Layer Elementary School in Winter Springs had no power at all.

In unincorporated Seminole County, power was off at 31 sewage lift stations.
