Mandatory evacuations (350,000) Miamis Beaches, ALL Mobile homes- county wide. Schools closed tomorrow, used as shelters. Stay safe people,
and zero tolerance for looters.

Steve- secure the servers, will you pull the plug?

A good friend told me the only way to keep your boat around in these, is to trailer sink them. Is anyone doing that?

Speed Girl-have them place him in a water tight container and then they can put that in the dishwasher. Otherwise have them store stuff in in interior room (bathroom, closet) that doesn't have any windows and preferably not on an exposed outside wall). I live in Port St. Lucie and work in Jensen Beach. Alot of people are still out looking for essential supplies.

According to the latest NOAA data and computer models, Ft. Myers will be okay this time. However, we all know that these storms can take some wild turns at the last minute, so the predictions are only a rough guide.

The latest storm track is showing landfall to be somewhere between West Palm and Fort Pierce.
Here are a couple of "before" shots of the ocean/inlet from the rear terrace of our place in Stuart, smack inbetween West Palm & Ft. Pierce
