I started that topic and advise nobody ever rely on a message board for hurricane information due to its life threatening nature. If Jesse removed it I approve.
Just popped back to tell that this one is coming at us here in SW Florida. First serious one since we moved here. The track takes it right over us. I suggest it will be strong but will keep why short. I've got a lot of work to do today clearing the deck of furniture and getting pots off the lawn and deck.
Local authorities are starting to go ballistic here. They say it will hit on a high tide. Vacationers are being advised to leave.
It goes right over us on this NHC map: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/ftp/graphics/AT03/refresh/AL0304W+GIF/111508W.gif
