Apparently they said it's starting in Miami.

I just watched a video from Old Town, Key West (near furthest west point) - posted an hour ago - people out walking their dog ... 

Are you quite sure that it isn't a kite?:oops:

Irma is moving verrrryyyy slooooowwwwwlly...

I would have thought that given her slow moving, she'd have picked up more strength by now, although she's still a Cat 4 (according to CNN). I'm guessing the appearance of her EW being knocked down a bit means she's actually weakened rather than strengthen (due to shear) ... Is there a potential for her to strengthen again given her slow movement?

:D:D Definitely a dog (a small one at that) - sniffing around some downed trees in the middle of the road.

On another note, an area in West Marathon seems to have a lot of water coming in fast.

I don't know where this is, but seems to be in the Keys somewhere - he mentioned something about milemarker 15, but couldn't quite make it out.

Seems to have a death wish. Just been standing for ages in the middle of a tree lined road full of large bits of broken tree.

I think flying branches are the least of his problems, is there any high buildings in the area, it looks as flat as a pan cake with single floor building around. He needs to move.

Currently, the tide height at Key west is about 3.5 feet above normal sea level, and rising quickly.

I think the wind speed for rating the catagory of a hurricane is the speed high up whereas the speed is less lower down where the instruments in the keys are hence they are reporting lower numbers.

Was expecting that, they will probably all drop. I'm assuming there's more than one scraper with a crane up.
