Way to go, Larry. The wind is gonna blow - better to read about it in the papers. Best of luck.

For Florida's sake, I hope the drag across The Bahamas reduces Dorian's intensity. It should. I wouldn't be happy if I lived in the northern Bahamas, what with Dorian becoming a category 4 now.

The hurricane is fairly narrow-- only a 60 mile total width of hurricane force winds, whereas Katrina was 260 miles wide of hurricane force winds. Of course if it hits as anything more than a category 2, it'll do some major damage within its width.

Probably anyone more than half or three-quarters a mile from the coast won't have too much to worry regarding flooding (which usually causes most damage), but the big pain is always the power outages. Florida will probably get it back up and running within a few days. In Katrina we didn't have electricity where I live for 3 weeks. Mississippi ain't that swift..

It looks like the storm will be just off coast hopefully according to the latest projection
Still close enough to cause havoc but not as bad as a direct hit
They havent ruled out a direct hit
It might make landfall in georgia or south carolina

Good news, Larry. Looks like y'all might be able to dodge a bullet. And being on the west side of a hurricane is the most favorable of the three, as you know. We'll all be watching.

Beatle, do you live in SE Florida too? From this morning's estimates it looks like Dorian will slide up the coast 50-60 miles offshore, so the U.S. might only get some strong weather.

You can almost sense the palpable disappointment from the news media and the weather people. They were all hoping for a major disaster.. Now, if Dorian skates they may be left without a catastrophe for this year..

Dorian now 180 mph......
They still dont know how close it will come to Florida
My area has gone from tropical storm to hurricane watch.
Doc i am a little touchy now
Keep the cynicism to a minimum
There is nothing funny about this
NO disrespect intended
Sincerely
Larry
