    I'm glad to see people here are taking the evacuation warnings to heart. Unfortunately some people are not helping. This has the potential for a group of darwin awards in the making

    The wind is really picking up now. It's a constant howling outside. We heard a tree fall outside but it's still too dark for us to see where it was. Hopefully when it's daylight it will be easier to see what's going on. They've recorded wind gusts up to 50mph where I'm at but we are just now getting the outer bands. We should be in the worst of it from anywhere between 10am - 2pm. They were showing wind gusts of 110mph at the coast.

    I'm in downtown Orlando and it's been very mild. Windy and rainy, yes, but nothing we're not used to as far as tropical rainstorms go. No loss of power or Internet. YET.

    My family is fine but I'm housing a refugee from Charleston. Her mom's house is on the water and the yard is flooded. I have other friends who stayed and their street is flooded. Next surge is expected around 1pm with the high tide - that'll really determine how fucked they are. But they're getting nailed right now.

    I'm worrying big time about the flooding in the Carolinas. It's the storm surge I keep thinking about. I saw the result of that kind of damage recently in Ellicott City, MD, where six inches of rain fell within two hours. It had a devastating impact on the community. Stay safe, Jez.

    Twelve and a half feet of water on Tybee Island and in other areas around Savannah. the whole city is on lockdown - no one in or out but emergency workers. They have roads blocked and are literally turning people away (which they said hey would do, not sure why people are attempting to go back). My brother had to go back (he's a federal agent and his job requires it), and he said their house was spared. A few trees down and a huge mess but nothing catastrophic.even their chickens survived!

    I'm so glad everyone stayed safe, and hope the damage isn't too lasting.

    Hurricane Harvey is now expected to strengthen to a category three hurricane by the time it makes landfall later today or early tomorrow. It's going to be the first major hurricane to strike the United States in 12 years and will likely cause devastating flooding from rain and storm surge.



    God help the people who will need federal assistance after this, because FEMA doesn't seem to be prepared for it. Shades of George W. Bush and Hurricane Katrina.

    I'm not on the coast but ugh, everything's in a huge panic state right now down here. Hoping everyone was able to evacuate.

    ^It looked really menacing from the footage they showed on CNN!!! It also seems to be a deja vu of Katrina in many ways.
