I would get out of this things way if I could.
This is what's causing all of our models to go insane. We're seeing up to 30" of rainfall in some areas, along with a potential for a 12' storm surge.

The other issue is the steering currents getting weaker means the storm will likely stall for an extended period of time, and potentially move down towards Southern LA at a very slow pace.

Stay safe guys.

the boat is in a covered shed in port O'Connor but that's ten hours away from me and I couldn't get away from work to drive down there and back home without getting caught in the storm

que sera
I know how that goes, and that is a hell of a last minute drive. Good luck.

Houston/Galveston/Freeport will be spared the damaging winds but will get huge rain event. Further sound (Matagorda, Post Aransas, Corpus) have already started to hunker down or evacuate. Most of the ports south of Houston/Galveston have a mandatory evacuation by noon today I believe.

It is cheaper life insurance to get out of Dodge pronto.

Take no chances!

The prime example of how the news says "Its not going to be bad" or "Its just a storm" or something along that line and it being one of the deadliest storms/hurricane in US History is Sandy

Boats, homes, and other stuff isn't worth it. Just get your family and get the hell out.

This is looking to be a very bad storm. It's building strength over warm water. I hope people take precautions and leave the area. Also, hopefully bringing pets and stray animals when possible too, 700,000 pets died in Katrina.

948 MB at 1000. However this is during the eyewall reforming during which the storm weakens. The eye is in the process of doubling in size. This evening the storm will pass 20 mi to the east of BUOY42020 into the hottest water in that part of the gulf.

BUOY42020 is currently reporting nominal wave heights of 10' with maximum of 24'.

That damn hurricane moved my family away from beautiful South Florida to land locked Atlanta. We were about half a mile from where the highest wind speeds were recorded before the anemometer snapped. I'll never forget three images, the first was when we went on the roof of my neighbors two story home after the storm and could literally see for miles in every direction; it looked like a bomb went off. Second was the 'Seaward Explorer', a 300 ton research vessel that was swept over Elliot key and came to a stop at 177st off old cultler; also very close to where we lived. The third image forever engrained was the first night after the storm; I had no idea there were so many stars in our night sky.

Final thought, I also never forget the human spirit that came out after the storm; everyone came together to help each other. I'd never experienced such selflessness and willingness to care for others. I expect Texans will certainly do the same.

God bless

That water is going to make some interesting changes in the numbers this evening.

Maybe tether your boats to a tree or post so they can float
and become your source of evacuation after the storm.

Take care Chris and all of you in harms way.
