Florida Governor Rick Scott just declared a state of emergency for all of Florida.  The computer models are increasingly showing that Hurricane Irma may hit Florida as a Category 4 hurricane on Friday or Saturday.  Miami could take the initial hit, and then the hurricane could continue up the east coast of the state.  To all TSN members on the Florida east coast, do whatever you can to get ready.

The current computer models have Puerto Rico in the cross-hairs of a then-Category 5 hurricane with 185 mph winds. With all due respect for our members in Florida, please pray for our member Carlos PéPé Peña, whom the storm will hit first.

You raise a good point.  We do have some members in Puerto Rico.  In addition to Pepe, we have Pepe's brother and Carvelo, and there may be others.  To all our friends in Puerto Rico, stay safe gentlemen.  We'll keep you in our thoughts.

Im in central Florida,  north of Orlando. It is a scary situation and there's more panic than usual because of Harvey. We have a lot of first responder volunteers who went to Texas to help with Harvey who are just getting home to this. The only bright spot, if it is one, is that I've lived here for close to 50 years and in a majority of hurricanes, to my memory at least, a majority of hurricanes that are predicted to hit us 5 days out don't.  At least not as directly as thought. ( fingers crossed )

This might be the worst of the worst. I have gone through many of these and they are not pleasant. The big event will be the wind rather then rain so don't go out under no circumstances. This is a fast moving hurricane so maybe it will get in and out quickly. Good luck to everybody who lives in Florida.

The latest spaghetti track do NOT look good:

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has issued a hurricane and storm surge warning for all of south Florida and the Florida Keys. I know that several (all?) counties along the coastline have issued evacuation orders. Stay safe Floridians, this could get rough.
