Default ETA looks to be a problem

Looks like this might happen rather quickly, Tampa Bay and surrounding areas be alert.

Looked like it was making good progress to the east. However, it appears it may be slowing on its eastward trek and starting to move more north. It'll be interesting to see what the morning brings. Keeping my fingers crossed we don't get too much surge in Pasco/Hernando counties, or anywhere for that matter.

Charley was a Friday the 13th storm for Lee county...

This won't be a Cat 4 or maybe even a hurricane but just saying.

Put the storm ropes on yesterday.

Don't trust anything called ETA

Estimated Time of Arrival!

Some surge coming for sure at this point.

Maybe!

Default Fort Myers Area

Any idea how Eta is or will affect Fort Myers area. Looks like heading north of it but what about wind / flooding in the area.

Asking since I was planning to head down Saturday and check out the boat show.

Is there a website that predicts actual surge height? I'm in tampa bay at 5.5ft above above sea level.

Today, is a miserable one but after it moves north of us which will happen overnight we will be fine other than some rain until it moves a little further north.

They have updated the threat to 3 to 5 feet for Tampa. High tide will be around midnight. If the wind has switched to the south west by then you may get all of the 5 feet of surge.

Midnight and around 6 am tomorrow morning is the times to watch out. We are also close to the new moon tides.

Good luck!

Yikes, could be close. I'm 5 houses from the canal. The first 2 flooded in tropical storm Hermine in 2016 which was way out in the Gulf as it passed Tampa Bay. Thanks for the website

We are supposed to be dead low tide pretty soon here, and water is almost over half the seawalls I can see. Gonna be some pretty damn high water in the bay tonight. Hope all you Shore Acres crew have time to get supplies and do what you can.

Starting to get a bad feeling.

I'm heading to the marina around 1:00, will probably spend the night, high tide at 9:45p, should be interesting. The new moon doesn't help,

Maybe by that time the storm will be passing and ''sucking'' the water out of our canals?

During Irma my boat was hanging from the dock lines with almost no water under it. Lines stretched just a little bit.

Tide has come up about 6” since I posted #15 . It is up over the dock across from me . That was about 30 minutes ago.

Feel bad for ya man. I just spent the morning on top of my hangar installing new metal roof screws because it was leaking from the torrential wind rain last 2 weeks.
I also bought another hangar and I can't insure it yet because of the named storm within 400 miles of the coast. I know I am east coast but the tornados can rip these suckers down.

What kind of boat is that?
