I looked at  the satellite picture of Jeanne on http://www.wunderground.com/tropical/tracking/at200411_sat.html and this hurricane is HUGE! The size of it boggles the mind. It looks like the worst of it is going to hit Fort Pierce and surrounding communities close to midnight tonight, with 70mph winds and gusts up to 105mph. Fort Pierce sure has taken a beating this year.

Here is a list of the strike probabilities and it looks like Fort Pierce is it at 66%.

Nowcast as of 12:08 PM EDT on September 25, 2004 for St.Lucie County (Fort Pierce, FL)

Outer rainbands approaching Martin and St Lucie counties... Through 2 PM...isolated showers will move southwest at 35 mph across Volusia, Lake, Seminole, Orange, Osceola and Brevard counties.

I called my Uncle and Aunt in Fort Pierce about 7 pm Florida time. They said that the ones that are going to really have a tough time are the homes that have tarps over the roofs because of Frances  Also, lots of ruined furniture piled besides the streets everywhere because of Frances. They said that they were without power for 8 days after Frances and had heard that if they lose power again, it might be a lot longer.  It's 12:18 a.m. in Fort Pierce right now, so I imagine they are in the thick of it. .

Just took a look at Intellicast Radar Loop. At 12:48, EDT the NE quadrant of the eye wall was over the Ft. Pierce/Vero Beach area. That is the absolute worst part of the storm, and I expect that FDH, DonE911 and their families are plenty scared right now. I sure hope they're ok.

From what I see there, this storm is every bit as big and bad as Charlie, Frances, or Ivan, maybe worse.  Once again, I'm concerned about my Son, but he is on the "good" side of this one. His place held up well through Frances, so he should be ok.

I spoke with Harold via phone this morning, hoping he would be coming up here. NOT!  That is one hard-headed old FART! >:(

I'll be surprised if we hear from any of them for a day or two. :-/

Harold,

You know, if I was you, I would move somewhere safe, like Costa Rica! I am sure we have some logs sunk in Arenal you can fish for.

Of course, salvaging logs is going to be really good for a while now in Florida.

Fred
So, how did I end up here anyway?

Could someone with Cablevision or Sattelite tv take a look at the Weather channel?  I can't seem to get any current info on the status of Jeanne.  Radar shows that it ain't lost it's form like they usually do when crossing land, and it seems to be headed thisaway. :o

I hope BigDogpc is hunkered down well. Looks like it's right on top of him now.  Crosscut was also in the direct path, and is probably still in the heavy stuff.

Weather Channer shows the storm at still a cat 1 hurricane with winds over 90. THe eye appears to be due west of orlando and it is moving NorthEast yet looking at the Radar loop on T.V. It still looks like its real organized. Cant pick out the eye, but you can sure see the tight rotation of a hurricane, even now that its over central florida.

Here's the latest from the weather radar from NOAA for FL.
