Quote: My response is the experts have too much on the Iine to not be 90% right especially with this monster. My gut reaction is I cannot see any reason on the satellites that would explain the radical turn to the north that is predicted..this is worrisome in this instance because a storm of this magnitude creates its own climate around it..So .....watch carefully.
I just saw the full speeds. 185 sustained TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY MILE PER HOUSE GUSTS. That's so far off the Saffir Simpson scale...This storm finally underscores that climate change needs to expand the scale. This storm should be considered an H6.
That said, if you're in a wooden walled house that is not hurricane strapped and the storm is heading near to you, MOVE. Just drive somewhere deeper into Florida or Alabama or something. It's NOT WORTH STAYING.
Despite the storm only being 90 miles across, its tossing up to 23 feet of storm surge which will put huge swaths of Florida underwater if the surge continues past the storm which does look to stay out to sea but it's so strong it might go more West.
-------------------- The safest way to deal with a potential Hurricane hitting you...is to leave and just not be there at all.
