I live just south of Daytona beach....This little Storm/cane Ophelia is a bit more than you guys would expect.Today was trash day..I haven't sen my can since this morning...It's flat gone.You can hear the wind push the front door in and my boat cover is not gonna take 3days of this.Our worst Hurrincae damage last year was from our weakest storm BUT it was one that lasted about 14hrs at about 80 plus MPH...It tore **** up eventually.This one is gonna be around for 3 days!!...eventually 50 mph winds will get the best of stuff.
It has been off/on rain since monday...flooding lots of places.This morning I go to work and I saw Jesus..and he said "I'm outta here".Not to mock but the rain has been sideways since this morning and the trees are bent over almost all day.A lot **** is closed around here..Schools and such.Of course my ass had to stay at work.
They sure are being hush-hush about this little pest but as far as I am concerned you would think things are fixing to drop hard.I've seen several Cane's of over Cat3 that didn't do this much pre-show.There is **** all over the streets and has only increased since I got home a few hours ago.....My guess would be 40-50mph sustained for 20-30 minute periods.
If this thing stays where it is you are gonna see much damage come this weekend....$20 I will have to work tommorow.People are actually buying cars/trucks in this crap.
