Default Hurricane Michael

I'm betting impact around Carrabelle,FL but either way we're going to get some weather in a part of FL that isn't good at getting weather.

I live in Tallahassee and keep a boat in St Marks. If you've been here you know how many trees are in the area.. A afternoon storm knocks power out.

This one came up fast. I hope it doesn’t strengthen as predicted. I’ve got a boat on a lift that I cannot get to because I’m out of town. Good times.

Some of the models are showing upwards of Cat 3, hopefully its just a TS, lot of cotton left to pick in Ga. It would help with the red tide so hopefully some good comes from it.

Same here, in Tallahassee with house + 2 boats at Alligator Point. Looking like a double bullseye at the moment. I've got a neighbor with a very large decaying pine that is ready to come down, only a matter of who's house it hits. Hopefully Hermine cleared out some of the dead and weak trees. Being that our mayor is now running for governor, I expect the response to be much different.

Grew up in Tallahassee, funny I was telling my buddy I used to spray off my oysters at 16$ a bushell "my way seafood" in Panacea, I remember doing spring break on st George and Franklin County Sheriffs telling me to never come back. I havnt been back in years but watching this storm wants me to go back. I'm hoping it just brings heavy storms.

If you go again, don't count on the oysters because there are none left in Apalachicola bay.

Slight shift east.

I highly recommend Windy.com

i've used it for the past 3-4 hurricanes and it's proven very accurate for landfall.

this is what I'm hearing, and now a bushell runs 75-100 bucks?!. I was deployed over seas in between 2010 - 2014 I guess that's when Appalichicola bay took a dump with high heat and bacteria. It saddens me just to write about it, I remember the old alligator point,no new homes(and there might be some pot hidde on that beach), white trash bash, when st George had the old bridge ,all the was was Aunt Ebbys ice cream, Harry's and BJs pizza. Now all covered up in Pencil homes I hear there isn't even a chili cook off anymore or seafood festival in Apalachicola wtf..

A lot of oyster farming going on around Panacea now. Lot of resources from state being used to teach and then lease water. We are there a lot and man those farmed oysters are good. No grit at all.

Track hasn't changed too much. You guys in the Panhandle take care. Wonder what this will do to the red tide along the coast if anything?

Windy is awesome but that post is fake news. Bring the elevation back down to the surface and its 65 mph.

it might not be off by that much. Right now they’re saying landfall as a strong cat 2 or a 3.

Agreed but at 4am on Thursday, Windy shows 93mph on the surface, 143 at 3000ft. Let's just hope this thing moves as fast as predicted and gets the he!! out.

Do you think this will blow out some of the red tide in SWFL? We were there last month and saw 100lb tarpon floating off Marco, I am hoping this will get that oxygen-less water and algae blown offshore enough so the citrents move it away from coast.

Never like to see a hurricane making landfall, but it seems like its inevitable in the panhandle. Please heed the warnings and batten down!
