    OMG, it looks like it could take out the whole state. SR and I were talking this evening about how many of the Floridians would have a tougher time, if possible, than Texas. I don't recall seeing as many of those big monster trucks in Florida that could get through and help those stranded. I've lived in both states, and don't want to insult Florida, but Texas seemed to be a more muscular state (if you can attribute human descriptions to a state itself). I'm probably just basing these observations after living in Sarasota, which probably has an older population, maybe not as old as Sun City.

    Praying that the storm tracks out to sea and doesn't bring harm to anyone else. Harvey was enough.

    Irma is now a CAT 5 storm!


    (CNN) [Breaking news update, published at 7:57 a.m. ET]




    Hurricane Irma has strengthened to a Category 5 storm, with maximum sustained winds of 175 mph, data from a hurricane-hunter aircraft show.


    Irma is expected to remain a dangerous hurricane as it approaches the Leeward Islands.

    It is still too early to tell the exact impact Irma will have on the United States.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Expecting 200 mph, largest hurricane ever recorded already.

    And if the storm "as is" isn't bad enough...





    Maximum Potential Intensity (MPI) is a theoretical measure of the maximum strength a hurricane can achieve, based on the existing ocean temperatures and the thermal profile of the atmosphere. Above is a plot of the MPI as computed from the GFS model run from 0Z Tuesday, September 5, 2017. Irma hit 185-mph winds in a region where theory said it should only have been able to attain peak winds of about 165 mph. According to an email from hurricane scientist Dr. Kerry Emanuel, “in numerical simulations, rapid intensifiers often overshoot their potential intensity, but eventually settle back to it.” Note that the MPI along the track of Irma peaks at about 210 – 215 mph in the Florida Straits. This implies that Irma has room for still more intensification as it approaches Florida, if wind shear, land interaction, and eyewall replacement cycles do not interfere.
