24 hours of that same wind would have been even more devastating to us!




True that constant pounding plus saturated ground is going to uproot many, many trees and NC has some big trees. However on the flip side since Flo has basically stayed in the same spot I think that wind related damage will be concentrated to just that regional area.

Contrast this with Wilma and Irma - both of which were also large storms but moved quickly and thus effected a much larger area, about 1/2 of Florida due to their path across the state. I'm thinking as far as areas effected Flo will more like Andrew with wind damage limited to only a small pocket. Flooding and surge covers a much bigger zone this time. And of course the level of damage will be MUCH lower since we are talking Cat 2 winds vs Cat 5.

For those of us in Broward Irma was actually a long duration event - we got NE winds while she was in the Keys, then E winds while she was in Naples, then finally SW winds as she moved towards Ocala. At my location I would estimate that we had TS winds for nearly 36 hours. This resulted in nearly no damage because the wind wasn't strong enough to complete uproot trees, it just snapped off smaller branches. During Wilma many trees (of all sizes) came down. She was moving very quickly but had massive core with 80 to 110 mph eye wall winds.

South FL Native... experienced many tropical systems, but actually had to put up the panels for:
David ('79) - Floyd ('87) - Andrew ('92) - Georges ('98) - Frances ('04) - Wilma ('05) - Matthew ('16) - Irma ('17)
