I begged my kids to get out of FLA before that killer one last year.  They ignored me.  Turned out ok for them, but, riding out a Cat 3 is not a good thing if you can get out of the way.  Here's hoping you can talk them out of there.

This has had one of the odder storm tracks I've seen in years for a major storm.

I've been watching a lot of this in lieu of the Weather Channel.  I like how this channel has a quad thing going.  They had that Frying Pan Reef cam live in one corner for quite a while today.

I think the flagstaff thing held together pretty well considering. I have a 12 ft. aluminium flagpole in my backyard and the first serious thunderstorm that came by the wind bent it.  :o  Now if it's bad weather I take my flag down.
