I checked, it says "up to 230 miles". Last advisory said 175 miles, so you're on the border on maybe getting em as you're about 175-200 miles out.




11pm news here in Tampa just said we were approx 171 miles from the eye right now, so pretty close to the border, but it will depend on whether it goes more NNW or NW.

To me, a novice, this storm [center] looks tight and compact like Charley, so why would the TS winds extend out to 230mi.? Charley passed about 30/40 miles to the east of me and we barely got a whisp of wind.




charley was pretty small, but strong in the center. if a hurricane is moving due north being west of the storm the winds are the lightest as the circulation is going the opposite direction of the forward speed. check this to compare sizes.

Yes, Charley was a very compact storm. The area of severe damage at Punta Gorda was only about 15-20 miles in total width.

Help is already on the way. [Re: lunkerhunter]
      #41314 - Sat Jul 09 2005 11:37 PM

To those of you who end up getting the worst of it:

I saw my first caravan of electric bucket trucks heading out of Polk county (and we got three eye's of the storm last year). You'll be amazed that the speed at which both the state and federal govenments will get in the basics (food, water etc) in to you.

If you're in the path, don't dispair, get away from the coast, and get as much gasoline as you can get your hands on, right now.

Good luck all.

Westward shift from the previous track over Escambia Bay, FL. I still think Gulfport/Biloxi or Pascagoula area......trough not looking as aggessive as it did yesterday.

is my boat toast? [Re: erikakane2010]
      #41319 - Sat Jul 09 2005 11:48 PM

probably...It's inland from Dauphin Island about 15 miles...up Mobile Bay...however...it's critical which side of the Bay Dennis comes in from...if it indeed hits Mobile...I'm on the west side, and up the wide part of Dog River about 1/2 mile....

worst case scenario is a 20 ft surge...and of course 120 mph winds or so...ought pretty much wipe it out...

I'm insured...so....at least that's a good thing...

still think a cat 5 is probable...still do....I think it's a category four right now....

take care ya'll...we'll see.....I'm hunkered down and hoping it doesn't turn into an Andrew...however...its a tight little storm.....in the center...and it concerns me.....looks like Andrew did...

erikakane -- I would tend to disagree. The ridge is backing slowly to the east and the trough is actually a bit further south (and now east) than it was earlier today. In my view, Mississippi is in the clear for a direct landfall; it's Alabama and eastward now. Obviously, the whole area is going to see something from Dennis...how much of something depends on a precise track.

I've got to turn in for the day. Everyone, stay safe and get some rest: it's going to be a long day tomorrow.

Latest Vortex Indicates Cat 4 [Re: Rick on boat in Mobile]
      #41325 - Sat Jul 09 2005 11:57 PM

Here is the latest Vortex Message from Recon:
Quote:


Storm Name: Dennis (04L)
Mission Number: 15
Flight ID: AF308
Observation Number: 22
Time: 03:29:30Z
Latitude: 26.7°N
Longitude: 85.4°W
Location: 195 mi WSW of Tampa, Florida
Minimum height at 700 mb 2566 m
Est. Surface Winds Observed: NA
Maximum flight level wind: SE (146°) @ 151 mph
Distance and bearing from center to max flight level wind: 9 mi ENE (58°)
Sea level pressure: 940 mb
Max flight level temperature outside the eye: 48°F at 10072 feet
Max flight level temperature inside the eye: 66°F at 10000 feet
Dewpoint temperature inside the eye: 50°F
Eye character: CLOSED WALL
Eye shape: Circular
Eye diameter: 12 mi
Fix determined by: Penetration Radar Wind Pressure Temperature at 700 mb
Navigation / Met Accuracy: 0.02 / 2 nm
MAX FL WIND 131 KT NE QUAD 03:27:10 Z

At 11:27, recon reports central pressure is down to 940 mb (27.76) with flight level winds of 131 knots. This equates to a surface wind of 135mph.....looks like Dennis is once again a Category 4 hurricane!

Radio links...? [Re: danielw]
      #41326 - Sat Jul 09 2005 11:58 PM

Does anyone have links to radio stations that may be broadcasting from the affected areas....or perhaps an all encompassing site with numerous links?

Thanks in advance from a long time lurker and new poster.

As if Dennis weren't enough, we have a new invest for the wave in the central atlantic...looks like this one may develop too! Are we going to see Emily before the second week of July?? Meteorologist Tom Terry on WFTV Channel 9 in Orlando also pointed out yet another healthy wave pulling off of Africa that he feels might be future trouble

940 mb and 135 mph SL winds already? Yikes!

When was the last big hit for Mobile? I know Ivan was close, but was Camille the last direct hit? Anybody got a link for historical Camille info?
