    I saw on Fox News that it will move towards Pensicola and Apalachicola. Should give those sarras a good soaking.

    I believe it's also been downgraded to a category 1 with only (?!) 90mph winds. I lot of places are getting 10" of rain though, it looks very nasty.

    Wrong Spec, Sarr are very capable of surviving any hurricane with little or no damage. Mother Nature takes care of herself.

    It's now weakened to 75 mph. It's barley still a hurricane. As soon as it gets in the warm water of the gulf that could change. The dangerous part of this storm will be tomorrow when the flooding will be at it's worse.

    Definitely slow moving storms with lots of rain causes major problems. Flash flooding is different from flooding of rivers and streams. When it flash floods, you get flooding where you'd never expect to see it--everywhere! Happens everywhere. Richmond looked just like Florida last Monday..8 deaths so far. So I know the damage they will have all over Florida. Also after you've had hard rains and the ground is saturated, trees are more likely to fall in winds.

    Its been quite a heavy hurricane season with 2 more months to go. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    The back side is hitting the west coast of Fl. Most of the storm is now in the gulf of Mexico. It's now a tropical storm, but since it's over warm water it will probably become a cat 1 hurricane before it hits the panhandle of Florida. So far there are two deaths in Fl.

    This may surprise alot of people but the number one natural killer is flash floods.
