We have had rain all day, sometimes pretty hard rain.
According to my Weather Bug phone app, the strongest gust is 24 mph…..so far.
We are in a tornado watch and the weather radio has gone off twice telling of a tornado warning. You can bet that gets our attention!
One motor home left earlier this afternoon. I hope they get out of Florida safely.
I got a question from a commenter named Robert. I don’t know what happened to the comment, but he was asking what he should do. Robert is at Gulf Shores Alabama camping in a fifth wheel.
Boy, Robert, that is a tough one. We talked about heading north as well, but we decided it would be safer to stay put. We are further south than you and would have to go through a lot of bad weather before we got to a better location. It looks like you might be in a better area to evacuate. I wish I could give you better advice, but the truth is, I just don’t know.
How is the weather right now? Windy, rainy? What is the forecast for your area?
If you left now, you would end up traveling in the dark and possibly getting some storms. It’s a tough call and I don’t know what to tell you.
It’s such a fun day. Gotta go, the weather radio is bleeping again! This sucks
The Hurricane Weather Center still doesn’t know where landfall will be, but it’s now looking more like Florida, probably the Panhandle or north Florida.
