If there was a Category 6, this would qualify.

A Cat 5 is 155. This one has reached 185, with gusts up to 225.

 

Geeesh

Love that town...Savannah, too.  And both of em are gonna get absolutely thumped.

The little shack we lived in on Wilmington Island, (between Savannah and Tybee) is toast, as is our former landlord's shack and his dad's McMansion right on the marsh. :(

Anybody in GA/SC/NC/TN that can take in one handsome adult, and a cute chocolate lab!?!? lol

 

Unforunately I have extreme back and hip pain and I won't be able to make the drive all the way to Nashville, TN where my wife and daughter are. I just know I need to get the hell out of here!!!

 

Would your lab be okay for a night in a house with 6 other dogs and 2 evil cats? I'm west of Atlanta.

Just to put this into perspective. It's freaking windy out when gust hit 60 MPH. Multiply that by 3 with sustained winds. 

 

That's scary.

Very frustrating day, I'm in Tampa and had to wait 1 1/2 hours to get gas after finding the only gas station in the area who still had some.

 

There's no bread, water, tuna, or peanut butter in any store anywhere.

Go for the chunky soups, chili, stuff you can eat right outta the can if need be.  Stay safe, dude.  Keep in touch.

For the sake of comparison, for those who remember the devastation Andrew put on the Miami area (Homestead), they say this one is stronger That's probably obvious to most everyone by now. But still, it's crazy to stop and think about it.

The rumor is that Barbuda has essentially been wiped of the map.  Not a single structure left standing on the island.

I'm getting reports from friends on the BVIs and USVI other islands and it's horrific man. Barbuda, Anguilla, gone. It's unimaginable.

There is remembrances of Hugo everywhere here and that was 30 years ago.

 

You don't realize how real a hurricane can get, until you're on a 28 mile long rock in the middle of the sea, alone.

Don't know what to say to that...just a silent something.

Thanks for reminding us all here on the main rock...I'm on full alert, big-ass pine trees over us.  Telling the neighbors to get ready (my husband discounted my Spanish until I did it with the neighbors, he can be such an idiot...)
