Big difference between this and Katrina...
I'm in the path and may lose my boat but Biloxi is my hometown.

Thanks for the update, my wife lived there (on Genoa) until Katrina, we drive thru her hood whenever we're in town, great place to live.
Although according to her, you piss a six pack off your dock and it floods the streets....

If you want your mind blown at how big waves in the GOM can get, check out this article about Ivan's waves. They measured 91ft at these buoys near Ram Powell before going offline. They think the waves were closer to 130ft at the eyewall.....

The eye of Ivan passed directly over our place in Gulf Shores; the Kat was on her lift, and did OK. Michael is a really bad boy, but east of us and not a direct impact on us. Michael is a bit like like Ivan, but Katrina was another class altogether.
The NHC forecast for Michael was excellent on track, a bit too fast (as usual) on pace, and undershot intensity. A couple of models had him a four late during the forecasts this past weekend, then backed down, and the official forecast took a while to catch up. Intensity remains the hardest part of the equation, but this was, all in all, a really good job by the National Hurricane Center. I know a few of the forecasters (I used to know more), and the Director is a good guy. Kudos to them, for sure. Some of the experimental products were really good on this storm, so hopefully they will be ready for Prime Time soon.

the eye, quite literally, went over a house my bro has (pretty close to tyndall)

we have a condo on the wayyyyy west end of pcb, I think it will be ok

the house closer to tyndall is worrisome . . .

from there to the east is all tyndall until you get to mexico beach, guessing they are getting pounded

good luck everybody

I have no idea how accurate Windy.com is. Very cool site, and shows up to date wind speeds, directions, and waves with intervals. It was showing 15 ft waves INSIDE Port St Joe earlier today. I've seen no updates out of PSJ, but it has to have sustained major damage. I just pray lives lost is at a minimum.

Hope Everyones family friends and property made it out ok. i know a few guys that had boats in the Pirates cove dry stack that caved in. but as far as i know everyone is safe
The Alabama Fleet group is dropping a 53foot trailer to take supplies/donations in mobile this weekend or early next week as soon as we find a good location. I will have someone take it over once we figure out where it needs to go to get to the right people. i will let you guys know the details when we figure it out
