  1. Named Storm Irma formed from a tropical wave off the west African Coast earlier today. ( It was once thought that ‘Irma’ might form out of old Invest 92-L off the Florida coast). Named Storm Irma will make Hurricane status within a few days and will be approaching the Windward Islands by the middle of next week. Projections are that Named Storm Irma will enter the eastern Caribbean where the waters are much warmer than in the Atlantic. That will provide energy for additional development. Projecting a track past Wednesday, September 6 is nearly impossible at this time due to interactions from other weather systems, but we will update our unofficial details concerning Named Storm Irma as needed.

  2. Our computer modeling is showing a slight possibility of US involvement in over a week as a Major Hurricane (Cat 3 or above). While NO ONE who does storm modeling is projecting a high percentage track of probability for this storm past Wednesday, September 6, we would like to mention to all forum members who live in Atlantic Coast or Gulf Coast areas to check the status of Hurricane Irma each day for official advisories. Take Care and Be Safe.
     
  3. UPDATE: September 03 - Named Storm Irma - 2017

    Named Storm Irma has strengthened to a Category 3 Hurricane. It is currently 900 miles east of the Leeward Islands and is moving generally westerly. As this storm gets closer to the Lesser Antilles, it will start to be over very warm water and will intensify even more. Tracking models are still inaccurate for 5 days out, however we are requesting that all persons who live along the US Gulf Coast and the Atlantic Coast from southern Florida to New England CAREFULLY monitor the progress of this dangerous hurricane and prepare. We will post additional unofficial information as it becomes available.

  4. September 5 - UPDATE: HURRICANE IRMA has strengthened to Category 5 with core winds at over 176 MPH and gusting close to 200 MPH.

    Official tracking agencies and our own modeling are in general agreement that Major Category Hurricane Irma will continue it's westerly track, causing severe issues along it's track. This Hurricane will approach the Florida Straits by this Saturday, September 9. Official tracking models and projections from the National Hurricane Center are showing a northerly turn sometime on Saturday, September 9 and into Sunday, September 10. Due to this track projection by official agencies, we are now requesting that ALL PERSONS who live in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, South Carolina, North Carolina and east Texas give this dangerous storm your full attention. There are some variables that may affect the final track of this storm, so EVERYONE in Florida, the Southeastern States and the Gulf Coast States should be making preparations for some level of effects from a Major Category Hurricane starting as early as Friday, September 8 and extending through late next week.

  7. DEADLY HURRICANE IRMA Unofficial Update September 8, 2017:

    Hurricane Irma is still a very high Category 4 storm. Most worldwide tracking models are showing a landfall in the Florida Keys and into mainland south Florida Saturday evening through Sunday morning. The width of the Hurricane Force Winds is roughly 140 miles in diameter - wider than the state of Florida. Wind gusts to 150 MPH will be common through southern and parts of central Florida. Storm surges of 8 to 14 feet are anticipated on both coasts of Florida with 20 to 30 foot waves ON TOP of the storm surge. Rain totals could exceed 12 inches from southern Florida to Tennessee and the Carolinas.

    We are REQUESTING that all persons who reside in MANDATORY EVACUATION ZONES do so NOW. Your life may depend on it.
