winds sustained at 45 mph gusting to 53 mph. Pressure falling rapidly at 28.94 in. Total rainfall = 1.78 in
Heavy continuous squally weather - worse than Frances with higher gusts - about 40 shingles have just flown off my neighbors house - smashing against my north wall - soffits and alumimum framing torn from other neighbors home - I'm ready for Jeanne to take a hike - amazingly, only brief power interruption - my neighbors tar paper is flapping in the wind

looking at the tampa NWS radar - center is getting hard to pick out..maybe west-northwest..looks to maybe exit into GOM in Hernando County..but the motion could just be a wobble

It looks to me like it's just east of Brooksville. Movement more NNW maybe.

Local pressure 29.20 still dropping, winds 30 gusts to 50.

Still have power, but I don't see how.

Sean what's his name on MSNBC keeps saying that Jeanne will exit into the GOM..

had another good gust here and power flickered out... Of course, that could be a problem with DIYers out in the boondocks... not the same as urban construction..

time will tell..

Chiefland/Cedar Key report now shows 35 sustained with gusts pushing 50. First serious rain bands coming through now. We're supposedly going to have the worst of it between 4-6 pm. Current track that I'm seeing is out around Crystal River and back in over Cedar Key...does that sound about right to ya'll? Is the eye still around 40miles? If so that'll put us in Chiefland in it or on the far right edge as it goes by.

This is just my uninformed opinion, but I could see it going between Williston and Cedar Key, so you're right in the path. Conditions are becoming "Not Fun" here, and I expect them to turn worse yet. I would suggest anyone up in that area to seek shelter.

Edit: I don't think there is an eye anymore.

Punta Gorda checking in [Re: ZooKeeper]
      #32794 - Sun Sep 26 2004 06:43 PM

We're still having some strong gusts here in Punta Gorda, with a little rain. Our power went out about 11:30 this morning, so I'm on generator now. Not much damage outside that I can see from the front porch. It's still too windy to go outside safely. The downtown area is flooded, with waves breaking over the seawall, but that's pretty normal.

Please be safe -- don't take risks outside!

I can't imagine what you folks have gone through and are going through in Florida right now. I do know that the GA coast is feeling some effects from Jean already. The wind gusts are to about 40 mph where I am on the Ogeechee River, which is 20 minutes by boat to the Atlantic. The tide is going out, and it's still covered with white caps. There is not much land between me and the ocean, mostly marsh. I went down to the floating dock earlier and a gust almost pushed me in the river. I don't think I'll be doing that again! Basically, I'm just sitting here waiting for what's left of Jeanne to come pay me a little visit later tonight or tomorrow.

We have a nasty squall training over central and southern Pinellas County right now. Winds are easily gusting to 60mph and the rain is heavy and driving horizontally. There are lots of tree limbs down and some mailboxes have been pushed over. The winds have shifted NW and the pressure is still at its low for this event: 29.12in.

I live in southeastern Hernando Co. Having trouble getting info from the local weather stations. They are obsessed with Clearwater and St. Pete. They basically quit reporting on the eye of the storm after it was N of Polk and Hils. county.
I do see what you are saying about an exit to GOM. I'm thinking that too.

Reporting from southwest Seminole County. I cannot believe we are still experiencing winds like we are. They are now coming more out of the south. It seems like we are stuck in the zone of a band that just keeps wrapping around the eye and we are always in the same position of this band. the rain seems to have let up some, however.

Seminole County [Re: OrlandoDan]
      #32801 - Sun Sep 26 2004 08:26 PM

Conditions in Seminole County have really eased off for now. Radar shows we're in a dry slot between rainbands...so I expect conditions will worsen again in a bit.

With the lull, I went outside around my house to assess the situation. I went through Charley and Frances with no visible roof damage (I did have 2 leaks from "invisible" damage). This time, things are much worse. The first thing I noticed outside were my roof shingles lying all over the lawn. I now have some serious roof damage that will require ANOTHER insurance claim. Since I already lost my entire backyard fence to Charley, I expected there would be no more damage there. Sigh....... There is a creek running behind my property which is normally a tiny trickle. This thing is now a raging river over 20 feet wide. The water has eroded the bank (where my fence USED to sit) and the land has now tilted away from my swimming pool into the creekbed, leaving a large crevice between my pool deck and the unstable land behind. I have NO idea how that can be fixed. It looks like a slab of land roughly five feet wide running the length of my property will be falling off into the water, leaving the side wall of my pool exposed.
One of the few remaining trees in the backyard came down this morning and landed on my neighbor's fence

All in all, not a good looking situation...a lot of damage, but thankfully no one is hurt. As in the previous 2 hurricanes, I did not lose power (like Orlandodan, my lines are buried and it takes a lot to knock out my electricity)..so I do have some things to be thankful for.
Please let this hurricane season be over!

Is it my eyes, or is Jeanne starting to make a more northern turn? It's probably just my eyes.

It should be easy enough to get someone to fill and grade the yard when the flooding subsides. Perhaps they could do something to help prevent a future occurance. I'm afraid it won't be cheap, but a lot less than a new house. I wonder whether that would be an insurance covered expense?
