she is DEFINITELY trending more north (albeit not by too much) and she is definitely strengthening

For all those wondering, the storm IS NOT moving towards Katie's house, although a suspicious storm to her SE is looking dangerous

Hi:

Ok, remember this:

Since the storm is comming from the SW, all rules are reversed here.

If you are north of the point of landfall, you are on the WEAK side of the storm. You can take the windspeed and SUBTRACT the forward speed of the storm to get your net windspeed that you will experience. (i.e., 100MPH winds, 20mph forward motion, net 80mph windspeed)

If you are south of the point of landfall, you are on the STRONG side of the storm. You can take the windspeed and ADD the forward speed of the storm to get your net windspeed that you will experience. (i.e., 100mph winds, 20mph forward motion, net 120mph windspeed.)

Since I am most probably south of the landfall point, I'm scr*wed.

Katie you will be on the week side. Bobbo (plant city), I think you will also be on the weak side.

It still is going to be a heck of a ride, especially if this thing spawns a bunch of tornados, which is my biggest worry.

Good luck to all of you.

Mike V.

Greetings from Naples. There was an earlier post about Collier evacuations. Mandatory evacs were for everyone west of 41, otherwise known as Tamiami Trail, as well as anyone living in mobile homesmobile homes. I do not live in the evac zone - I'm considered inland Collier County, between North Naples and Immokalee. It's supposed to be safe from surge to a 4/5. Collier County is large - 2025 square miles. Our conditions have started to change - the wind is picking up, pressure dropping slightly but it is still 83F. It's going to be a very long night.

Karen
