Thanks for the link, here is a quote from that page FYI:
_____________________________________________

"Atlanta Motor Speedway will open its campgrounds to evacuees seeking to escape the path of Hurricane Matthew. The Speedway, which is equipped to handle thousands of campers during its annual NASCAR race weekend, will open the Family Campgrounds to evacuees free of charge.

"Located adjacent to the Family Campground, AMS will also open its camper bath house facilities allowing evacuees free access to hot showers and restroom facilities.

"Those interested in RV or tent camping at Atlanta Motor Speedway should enter the facility at Entrance "A" off Hwy 19/41 at Speedway Boulevard and take the first left at entrance N. The Family Campgrounds will be on the left. From I-75 and GA Highway 20, campers should see signs to AMS and follow Lower Woolsey road to Speedway Boulevard. Turn right on Speedway Boulevard and follow to entrance N."

Directions

Easy route is to use exit 218 off of I-75

And Link to their camping info. Some sites do have full hook ups, it appears.

Good luck to everybody. Might be a good idea to call them to confirm the press reports and other stuff.

The storm is not predicted to pass this way, so AMS should be a safe place for a few days.

God Speed!

FYI Station SPFG1 west of Freeport Bahamas has not filed its regular hourly report, and notes in red that the data is more than two hours old. Usually this results from a loss of electrical power at the station IMO.

So far things aren't as bad here in Jupiter as we thought it might be earlier. The Treasure Coast isn't out of the woods yet though. Once the sun comes up I will be heading over to check the trailer.

South of Cape Canaveral, Sebastian Inlet SP Station SIPF1 is reporting winds of 27 knots as of 9 PM:

Here is the Daytona Beach airport which reported winds of 22-30 recently.

http://w1.weather.gov/obhistory/KDAB.html

Winds are expected to increase as the eye moves north, so folks who stay up later can check and report in.

The 9:20 report from Station 41009 off Cape Canaveral was still pretty anemic IMO, at 33-41 knots:

We sat through Hurricane Donna just south of the Palm Beach International Cow Pasture (Airport).

The house is built to take it. If that's what PBI is reporting, my mom is probably sleeping through it...

Ground truth for Palm Beach County as I get it. Have contacts in area.

For measuring the storm surge, I could not find many relevant tide stations. This Station DMFS1 at Dames Point in the Jacksonville estuary of the St. John's River is running about 1-2 feet above normal (red line), with high tide expected at 2 AM or so:

http://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/sta...tml?id=8720219

http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=dmsf1

As Matthew approaches from the south, the easterly winds at the top of the storm should have a clear effect on the water levels at this tide station, throughout the night.

All you night birds can check and report in! Running out of steam here.

Hurricane Matthew

Only near the eye, I bet. Friction over land and distance from the eye makes a big difference. They love the drama. Look for winds reported from unbiased observers on the ground, like airports, etc. Don't fall for the television weather person's hype.

Hurricane Matthew

I saw some detailed wind map projections today. Let's keep our fingers crossed that the projected path does keep the Cat1 and 2 winds very isolated to a small inland path.

Only a very small area was shown as Cat 2 on shore.
