Tropical Storm Erika
Me think Erika is going to be stronger and catch many off guard in the next 48 hours. I see a storm rapidly coming together.

There is a storm in painfully recent memory that did the same...so NO I'm hoping it doesn't happen AGAIN.

RE: Tropical Storm Erika
The past few seasons has made many people complacent. I am trying to put the word out,here in NE Florida that this is no joke, but I think people are skeptical.

Yep, and I am very concerned folks are on their last vacation break not paying attention... ERIKA has a scary feeling about her.. Fla has not been hit in what 10 years by a Cane. This yr has been super Quiet... Just a potential Perfect Storm forming...

No one here ( I am in South Florida) is even talking about it. The newscasters are trying to play it cool.

Interesting... There is enough of the Models pointing at FLA that you would think at least it would be mentioned so folks could start preparing if they wanted to and did not know about Erika yet.... This is exactly how and why the misinformed prepare last minute... Erika could be a Cat5 or dissipate Anything could happen....
