Hurricane Dorian 2019, Category (3) Something To Take Seriously!!!

    Your model is called the cone of uncertainty it is not the size of the storm. This area will narrow as the storm gets closer. The center line in the cone is the current forecasted path of the eye. However the eye can hit anywhere in the cone. That’s why it will narrow as it gets closer. I don’t mean to correct you but I don’t want people to misinterpret the model.

    The spaghetti models are forecasts from many different algorithms

    what I stated was that it is way to soon to know, but the winds and rain as I stated will hit most of Florida.

    Oh yes I agree. No matter what most of state will see wind and rain. Preparing for the worst. Hoping for the best.

    Make sure to take pic's for your insurance company
    BEFORE AND AFTER... Now is the time to make a video and take photos of ALL your stuff... A photo is worth a thousand words, and insurance company will only pay on items you can prove you had.

    I may be a Category (3) something to take seriously!!!

    Hurricane Dorian is forecast to move through the Bahamas this weekend and strengthen to a Category 4 storm as it approaches the FL East Coast.

    Maybe we will get lucky and not have a direct hit in our area?

    Looking hopeful that we will not get a direct hit and major wind problems up in the N central area. My big worry is still how much rain it dumps once it moves north as predicted. Hopefully won’t stall-out like Irma.

    that would be the best scenario, I'm still installing panels, and anchoring down my boats and trailers.

    at least we have warning, look at the people with the Midwest twisters, they only have minutes to take shelter.


    This would be better, the further east offshore it goes

    I feel for the Bahamas, I love the place, I stayed on some Islands where the houses were withing feed to the water, and not they are getting a direct hit with a Cat 4. I can not imagine being there now. hoping they come out safe.
