    Did anybody make it into the eye of this thing safely? Considering that the eye just went over an entire city, I'm quite surprised that I've not seen any 'inside the eye' footage.

    I'm not saying it's not difficult or dangerous - it is... but flying through a cat4 hurricane is probably a lot safer for them that a mission to investigate an invest and check for a low level circulation. In a hurricane, they go high and can kind of see what they're aiming for (if only on radar)... for an invest they'll go low, and it's a hell of a lot more difficult to find the center. Add into that the potential effects of turbulence on aircraft altitude, and I'd imagine it to be a bit "seat of your pants".

    NHC went with 155MpH and 919mb as of "0100 pm CDT" ... that's 1mph short of Cat 5. If they don't pointlessly upgrade that in their next update, I can only presume they'll take a closer look after the fact at some later date.

    This is why we say that it's a bad idea to be anywhere near Major hurricanes. If Brett can get it wrong, what chance do I stand?

    Just read a comment on facebook from someone with a profile stating they work at NBC15... that they've heard from Brett's Wife that he's OK.

    Alternate link to Brett's Car's feed (can't really call it Brett's feed anymore!)

    Realtime wind speeds... http://ds.weatherflow.com/storm/michael#30.047,-85.032,10,8,!180980,1 (actually, perhaps not as realtime as I first thought)... but interesting.

    Barring a miracle, Panama City is pretty much getting devastated over the next few hours. Even if the buildings survive, a hell of a lot of infrastructure won't.

    Gotta love storm chaser mentality...

    Even if it went that extra few MPH to Cat 5 now (156, iirc?), I doubt the NHC would upgrade it - there'd be no point other than to just increase any panic out there. They'd probably wait until the post-cyclone analysis to make the call.

    I'll give it a go. I reckon that, with Florence, the warning was early, and the threat was clearer earlier. With Michael, I just don't think they've properly caught up and realised the implications. That, or nobody much cares about the Panhandle for some reason.

    Haven't seen it personally, but could just be a wobble? The strong ones (especially the RI ones) do that sometimes.
