We had 75 MPH winds and Fort Lauderdale has been without power since Thursday night. It was really bad, much worse then I thought it would be. I can't even imagine 150 Mph winds. If your in the target area, get out. I have never evacuated for a huricane. Then again, Fort lauderdale hasn't had a direct hit. I will leave for the next one.

sustained 160mph with gust over 200 , 26 inches of pressure i never thought that this day would come ,knew there was the possibility , but never thought it would come ..

for once in my life , i am really scared.

my home , shop ,and yard , so much hard work to earn the money and hard work to build , with my hands and hands of freinds , will be gone.....
i am actually crying at the moment because i have to leave my home...
home the place where i/we could always go , our peace of mind ,our little world , our love, cause it 's home. funny thing is 2 weeks ago today , at this time , we were in the hospital having a baby , she was actually due to be born tommorow ,wow...
get's me thinking , i have to leave in a few hours and may never get to come back here.....

Open, Your home, shop etc.. are only material things. They can be rebuilt !!! Remember, no matter how bad it gets....it could always have been worse !!! This is the time for you and your family to be safe and all others that are up there. God Bless and let's hope for the best. Dave

God blessed you with a beautifull child, and with a warning about this storm. Get out now! keep them safe. Everything else can be rebuilt.

Wow, our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in that area.

I know that it`s going to be rough to lose what you have put so much of yourself into. I hope that it will be of some help to know that you are in so many peoples thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time. You have a wife and a new child so get out of there. Everything in that picture you posted can be either repaired or replaced. Please keep us posted and let us know how you are doing.

Take care
