Well I hope they take your advice. I read Texas could be affected. I understand it's way early to predict but that's the last thing the Texas coast needs. Or any coast for that matter.

It all depends on when it breaks north. It would be hard for it to make the Gulf, IMHO, but if it does, I imagine it would be a bad time for Tampa and the panhandle. I can't imagine it making Texas from where it is now but they are strange beasts. I am still thinking it will turn early, curl and head out to sea but I am an optimist.

From a respected hurricane expert:


Quote:
Coming in late to the 18Z, anyway slightly north in the near term, over Turks and caicos Friday morning, Landfall near Key Largo Cat 5 Sunday morning, and rides up the entire spine of Florida inland, still a major hurricane over Orlando when it moves there overnight Sunday into Monday, the up to just west of Jacksonville Monday morning, still a hurricane, and doesn't give up hurricane strength until around Augusta, GA or slightly north of there Tuesday morning.

Good, it moves fast, bad, category 5 winds and surge dwindling to Category 3 hitting the entire east coast of Florida and well inland.

Stay the **** away Irma. Sitting here last year worrying about our place during Matthew was enough.

We have friends stuck in St Maarten, met them at a bar in PDC several years ago. She just posted a live video on FB, lots of wind, large waves but sunny right now. They were notified that their power goes out between noon and 1:00 today. While she was on the balcony videoing, her friend stepped out and said something about moving off shore. Not sure if they are trying to get more inland or if they are being told they must, she ended the video to go talk to whoever they are communicating with. Scary...
