Cedar Key and Chiefland currently getting pounded. Winds steady in the high 40's with gusts in the 50+ range. Just heard it was currently 30 miles SE of Cedar Key. Lights and satellite have been flickering but still up so far. Getting pretty dim outside too.

Well guys, Here in Fernandina Beach ( the little island north and east of Jacksonville on your map) The weather has taken a more dramatic turn for the worse. Winds began to really pick up about thirty minutes ago (6:30 pm). Mostly gusts that by the sound of them push maybe fifty mph. The rain has been ongoing since early afternoon, pouring then drizzleing on and off.

Power has yet to even flicker which is a miracle in this town. The power is usually out within minutes of the first cloud showing up.

Anyway I will try to keep you updated if things get more interesting.

It was a wild ride last night. Lost power about 5:30am when the animal was really bearing down. It was still blowing pretty hard when we fed the horses this morning (life goes on). Lost my balance a couple of times in the wind, but then I'm small. Interesting how we are beginning to compare storms, each 'signature' is so unique. As others have said, this one was very gusty. Made it more of a anxiety rollar coaster. Charlie was just sheer terror. Frances was just really bad weather. Good ol' FPL got my power back on this evening and the wind has finally settled down to a steady breeze. It's so cool outside I turned off the A/C. Three down, how many to go? Sigh.

Hey Jody,

What would ever possess you to use "Artsy Fartsy" for a handle?

Thanks for the update and stay safe!

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 2264
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0616 PM CDT SUN SEP 26 2004

AREAS AFFECTED...NRN FL THROUGH SE GA
CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 841...

VALID 262316Z - 270115Z ( 716pm EDT - 916pm EDT)
BEST THREAT FOR ISOLATED TORNADOES THROUGH 02Z IS EXPECTED FROM NERN FL NEAR THE JACKSONVILLE AREA NWD INTO PART OF SERN GA.

EARLY THIS EVENING THE CENTER OF TROPICAL STORM JEANNE WAS LOCATED OVER THE NWRN FL PENINSULA AND CONTINUES TO MOVE IN A GENERAL NNWWD DIRECTION. PERSISTENT ELY LOW LEVEL FLOW HAS RESULTED IN A VERY MOIST BOUNDARY LAYER WITH SURFACE DEWPOINTS IN THE MID 70S ADVECTING ONSHORE ACROSS NE FL AND INTO SE GA CONTRIBUTING TO SLIGHTLY HIGHER INSTABILITY. THE WWD MOVING RAINBANDS IN THE NE QUADRANT OF THE STORM ARE COLOCATED WITH THE BETTER INSTABILITY AND VERY STRONG LOW LEVEL SHEAR WITH 0-1 KM STORM RELATIVE HELICITY IN EXCESS OF 300 M2/S2. CURRENT RADAR DATA SHOW STRONG VELOCITY COUPLETS WITHIN THE MORE DISCRETE CONVECTIVE ELEMENTS MOVING WWD INTO THE JACKSONVILLE AREA. DISCRETE CELLS WITHIN THESE OUTER BANDS WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE THE BEST POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE ISOLATED TORNADOES NEXT FEW HOURS.
BEST THREAT AREA WILL GRADUALLY SHIFT NWD INTO SE GA WITH TIME.

The Artsy Fartsy name is one I chose based on my profession. I am a graphic artist for a screen print company.

Anyway I have attached a weather bug update of our current condidtions. Although things have gotten a little "drafty-er" since I took the snapshot of the weatherbug.

Getting a little windy around here.

Local mets in Tampa say (and showed on radar) that it is halfway into the Gulf now, and continuing to move NW.

It's close enough anyway...if the "center" does actually make it into the GOM, it won't be over it for too long...moving NNW if not N, but a lot further west that we were expecting anyway.

Hi all.. Havent been back to my house since I evactuated last night, because there is a curfew here in Osceola County until 6AM. However, my neighbors who also decided to evacuate violated the curfew and reported to me that I lost more of my roof (I only had 50% when I left yesterday) and my porch... Lake Toho seems to be holding her own, but we really wont see the flooding for a couple more days so we shall see.

I'm in Atlantic Beach, near Jacksonville. We have had sustained winds in the 30's with gusts to 50. A tornado warning just expired and, apparently,one did touch down in St. Augustine. We are still under a tornado watch. There has been considerable beach erosion, and about 80,000 are without power. There are around 2,000 in shelters. Amazingly, I still have power; with Frances I lost it immediately, and it was out for three days.

Will it continue to weaken as it comes toward Tallahassee?
Can it get any pep for the Gulf waters?

It was just reported that a huge tree came down on Fleming Island, and there were two 15-year-old boys trapped beneath it. One of them was killed.

No power in Eustis, Lake County since early this morning. No generator. Winds steady about 40 with higher gusts ALL DAY LONG and still going strong. Have not even been able to tune into a radio station . I ventured out to friends house where there is power and this is the first I am learning about what is going on. Without having to spend tons of time going through can anyone update me briefly. I am in Eustis and want to know what to expect tonight.
Thank You very much. Lauren

All Quiet ... [Re: ABWATCHER]
      #32848 - Mon Sep 27 2004 12:36 AM

All quiet in Ormond Beach. Squalls have died down and we still have power. Went out a couple of times and flickered but it's still on. Didn't venture out today but will have to traverse beachside (OB, DB, etc.) for accounts so should be able to let you know if there's additional damage.

Seminole County Update [Re: mud1967]
      #32849 - Mon Sep 27 2004 12:48 AM

First, I'd like to thank all the wonderful people who have sent me private messages regarding my situation with the hurricane damage I sustained. You guys / gals are the best! I truly feel that I have come to know many of you personally in these past few months, even though we have never met. Thanks again.
As for the situation here in Seminole County:
Well, a couple hours ago, I violated curfew and walked around my neighborhood before it got dark to see how everyone fared. People were out all over the neighborhood, checking up on each other and comparing stories....even though it was raining and the winds were still gusting upwards of 45mph.
This storm seemed to cause much more roof damage than the earlier hurricanes (I can certainly vouch for that with my own roof!). There are MANY
homes that have significant shingle and tar paper loss, resulting in interior water damage.
The tree loss was not as bad as Charley, but about the same as Frances. Luckily, this time, I did not see any trees that had fallen on houses in my neighborhood.

The reports from Sanford are sounding pretty bad. The St Johns River runs through Lake Monroe and, after Frances, the flooding was quite severe....however, a seawall of 7 feet prevented flooding of the downtown area (the flood following Frances crested at around 6.8 ft). Today, however, the lake rapidly rose to 7.5 feet, which means very serious flooding. Highway 17-92, a main highway that actually runs from Tampa to Daytona, has been flooded and the road is washing out.
It will be very interesting tomorrow when I have to go back to work in Sanford.

--Lou
