I shot some footage the day/night before on the HD10, and some destruction around my town, which fared better, overall, than the rest of the county and north. I'll cut something together, maybe 5 minutes or so, and send it to Chris Hurd.

It's good to hear from you, Heath. Sheesh, Floridians' nerves must be pretty frayed by now.

I've "exploded" on my fiancee too many times. And for once, and only once, I'll do a "frown face." :-( Okay, never again!

It stinks, but we're okay!

Mostly it feels, like never before, like we're complete sitting ducks. I'm anxious now about this Hurricane Ivan thing. I checked and it appears to be taking the same exact path as Charley.

Ivan Estimated Path

Charley's Path

If you look at Charley's Path vs. Ivan's Estimated Path, it's pretty spookily similar.

Imran,

For a little while, it was quite a lot like Frances. I just hope it suddenly swings North and is wiped out in the Northern Atlantic.

Right now the Mojave Desert is looking better.

Any jobs for experienced Delphi/Oracle developers up around there Ken?

They ordered the evaq of the FL keys starting this morning. All tourists, RVs and campers are urged to leave starting 9 a.m. All people living in Mobile homes should start tonight at around 6 p.m.
They are trying to do it in stages since there is only one road in and out of the Keys. Once again, time to fill up on Gas and water.

My son is coming over to board things up. my wife decided to go back to VA with me today. I'll talk to all of you sometime tommorrow.

In Frances, I got lucky, only lost some roof shingles. House right across the street had it much worse.

God I hope this one weakens at least some if it does indeed hit us. A Category 5 is catastrophic. I heard that down in Grenada, 90% of the homes that incurred any damage were actually completely destroyed. And right now it looks like it's making a Beeline straight for us.

Also, out of some sick twisted sense of humor, it looks like it's shadow will be right over Guantanamo in Cuba on September 11th. How odd.

Ugh...No to Ivan...One track had it going up Miami, but now the 11 am track (9-9-04) has it going up Punta Gorda, Naples, Fort Meyers area. This is so sad...

This is where to get your info from until we know more. Read their forecasts and discussions and you'll see they have a lot of widely varying models more than 72 hours from now. It is too early to predict with any accuracy how Ivan will effect Florida. Maps are here. The five day forecast is just a guess after day 3. Be sure to refresh your browser to get the most current information.

Starting Sunday you can go here and track the storm on the radar at Key West. This is a long range image and shows south of Cuba and the Isle of Youth. It updates every couple of minutes and if you have Java you can select the loop mode.

Jeff,

Where exactly do you live? I'm 12 miles west and 2 miles south of downtown West Palm Beach.

I'm just above Clearwater. I'm about 1 1/2 miles from the Gulf.

Did Frances do much damage over there?

A big hi-rise condo right on the gulf had it's roof ripped off and they've condemned the building because of water damage. It dropped carports on cars and toppled signs and light posts. I just had limbs off my trees to deal with.
