I sure hope they have that wrong. 60 MPH winds would tear us up.

FYI, y'all. If you're planning on evacuating thru Georgia, traffic has picked up on I-75 northbound into the Atlanta area already. Our little town on the south-side was very congested with traffic late today. Lots of northbound folks jumping off the interstate and taking secondary roads. I don't want to blow this out of proportion, because it isn't "bad", but definitely noticeable. Edit: meant to mention, I-75 from about mile post 212 to 230 is under heavy construction. Only adds to the long, slow traffic backups. .

Some communities along the Georgia coast have been ordered to evacuate. If you're coming from the Savannah area, at some point I-16 will convert to west bound on both sides of the interstate.

Just a suggestion, if you're on the fence, now's the time to point those beautiful Airstreams north or west and shove off.

Be safe everybody.

Jim

We have the trailer packed & will make the final decision to leave or stay Thursday. Will be traveling with 3 dogs, 4 cats, my mom, hubby, & me. We live in Charleston, SC about 25 miles inland. No easy decision for sure.

Special note for those in Florida******

I have been in Ft Lauderdale since August staying at YachtHaven near the airport on Marina Mile. Beautiful place on the water but its only 5' above sea level. I left Wednesday morning for Ft. Myers and beat the crowds, now staying at Tamiami RV Park till weekend. Plenty of spaces here and most other RV's have come over from east coast.

At 9pm found my old neighbor from YachtHaven pulling in. He said Broward County issued an evacuation order for everything along Marina Mile at 2pm. Gave folks till dark to get out!! Needless to say they were glad to get here but exhausted from packing so fast and getting out against the traffic.

It pays to plan ahead and not wait till you are TOLD to leave

As of last night's 8 PM update, there is about a 10% chance of hurricane force winds (>= 74 MPH) reaching into central Florida:

Good luck, you southern folks!

PS -- In addition to the risk of high winds, this interactive Storm Surge map shows risks for folks in low lying areas:

I would reconsider any trip tp Florida until after next Wednesday, this thing may come back on us then as a tropical storm at least. A double hit. I guess our luck has run out.

One of the long term projections is another landfall on south Florida on Wednesday and going out into the gulf. These are usually not accurate, at least I hope so.

Watching the Today show just now, the storm trajectory and predicted winds are looking pretty grim.

Be safe.

Lily woke me in the night, cold nose lightly touching my cheek, as it thundered and lighteninged outside.

She was shaking and panting, needing to cuddle up, feel safe, and be comforted.

Cannot imagine her storm-averse self in a hurricane.

You have a long drive to get inland, Jane....I say, go, better safe than sorry....but you've been thru hurricanes before, so your judgement is certainly better than mine.

You're so vulnerable to the sea down in there.

All of you in the storms path, please keep us posted, as we'll worry.


Maggie

After watching the the trajectory today we've decided to stay. Looks like everyone in my neighborhood has decided the same. We all took stock of water, generators, etc. & all are willing to share. Good neighbors are a great blessing.

Thanks
Jane

Let us know when it passes and that you are well, safe, and not underwater.

Jane I think I would stay in Charleston also, as I look at the maps and forecasts. In particular the storm surge map linked at the bottom of Post #47 seemed OK when I checked it this morning (except for actual waterfront locations on the rivers and harbors).
