HURRICANE IRMA! 1 Week, 6 Days ago Karma: 187
Posting this as in information-type warning thing.

Any of our members in Florida or the Caribbean Islands, please make or finish all your preparations ASAP!! Watch the news & weather, since the track of this storm is still very unpredictable. This is now a CATEGORY 5 hurricane-the most dangerous there is-and is definitely going to affect Florida, if not the Eastern Seaboard.

STAY SAFE & let us know how you're doing, 'k?

~~Wiccan~~
PS - getting reports of stores all over FL running out of supplies & gas - they still have a day or two to restock, but I'd be sure I had everything I needed NOW, or get ready to bug out.

Yeah yeah. I just heard on the news that they issued a mandatory evacuation for tourists. I imagine it's a very real possibility it will soon apply to residents as well. Please be careful you guys.

Yeah, all of the Publix's and Gas Stations are all out of water, gas is starting to run dry as well. We're inland and on high terrain so we're probably going to dig in and prepare for potential utilities loss for a few days. Only way we'll book it is if it comes into the Tampa area as a strong Cat 4/Cat 5.

I've been seeing stories about people fighting in the panhandle over gas and places gouging the price of water. I will cross fingers and all sorts of other appendages that you folks end up on the easy side of this monster! STAY SAFE, 'k?

On a side note, North Carolina and Georgia will both be in a state of emergency as of tomorrow morning due to Irma. Not sure why NC is, Georgia I kinda get since it looks like it's going to grind the coast.

Either way, stay warm, stay dry, and keep the hot chocolate pouring.

I think they envision a Matthew-type scenario, where it slimes its way up the coast and affects everyone from GA to NC and maybe beyond. I know several people that are already bugging out from Savannah and Hilton Head (and I would too with what they might get), so I believe that's what the general consensus is. STAY SAFE & let us know how you're doing, 'k? We tend to be a little proprietary about our authors & want them to be safe, comfy and in writing mode!!

Stay safe, y'all. When they say evacuate, do it! They are overstating nothing with this one. It's plenty nasty.

We're hanging around for now, unless we hear something more in the next couple days we're going to try and ride it out. If I seems like it's going to get to bad we'll be bugging out as well. If it was just the wife and me, it wouldn't be a big deal. Got the mini-me to think about now though.

Oh, SAVANNAH... what a gorgeous city, terrific history, awesome food, and so very vulnerable. I absolutely love Savannah & am hoping that this monster misses both it and Hilton Head. Please be careful, stay safe & we will be sending the utmost positive thoughts and vibes your way!! Let us know how you're doing, 'k?

Thank you! Many of the residence here are not thinking very much of the storm, Matthew did do extensive damage to downtown(Where I live.) due to the trees. I am but a 10 minute walk from River street and Forsyth Park. I will be keeping you updated on the state of things. <3

As a fellow hurricane survivor (I'm over in Hawaii), I am praying for this hurricane to pull a 180 into open ocean!!! I know, I know, silly, unlikely, but one can dream, right?

Florida, Georgia, NC Dokugans, you've got a little bit of time to strongly consider a Hawaiian vacation. I've got a guest room! The password is: SessKag

All humor aside, for all of you in Mother Nature's path, stay safe and please stay connected and update us, when possible. We may be an online community, but we do worry. I'm constantly praying for a miracle.

Irma is finishing up an eyewall replacement cycle now, winds are down to 150 but she'll probably re-strengthen. Hurricane force winds now extend out 70 miles from the center and tropical storm force winds 185 miles out from the center, which the eye is now 40 miles wide instead of 30 miles wide.

We just got power back yesterday evening, almost five days after we lost it. Suffered some roof damage but it was insured. No injuries around us. Still getting everything back to normal.

Thanks for letting us know, Walter!! Glad you came through safe & sound, and with little damage! Unfortunately, MomoDesu lost part of her roof and, at last check, still didn't have her power back.

Anyone else want to let us know how it's going???
