    Some fairly big waves/storm surge coming into Miami, those waves are being whipped round by that wind. Nothing too serious atm but it's pretty wild.

    Edit: Scrap that Bricknell is suffering some fairly heavy flooding see video:

    If the forecast for Miami all along was gusts of  70mph then nobody would have been evacuated. There's a video of Hurricane Katrina making its first landfall near Miami in 2005 as a Cat 1 hurricane and cars were driving around like nothing was happening. Even some people were just walking around casually. It definitely isn't a big deal to them.

     

     

     

    All well and good till you get decapatated by some house siding :nonono:

    The winds/gusts seem low but, then again one of the streams showed the radar was indicating 160-170 winds a few hours ago at 2000ft above the ground in the NE eyewall, though in quite a localised area, and with the intense convection in that part of the eye wall presumably that could be brought down to near the surface.

    Then there was this video video with the hand held anemometer recording 117mph which he claimed under-reads (the only video I've really seen with conditions I'd expect in a cat 3+ eye wall 


    Have NHC recon done any dropsondes measuring surface winds recently?

    More like it but I doubt you could stand in wind of 117 mph

    I did think that but it does look very intense so maybe, if it was recorded in that video clip (I presume he meant gust though)

    Both of those are links to the live map.

    Apparently this shows Tampa... and more specifically, the effect of that withdrawal of water seen on the weather station.
     

     

    Downtown Miami is currently under water but that's nothing to what's going to happen to many parts of the west coast, all that water is going to come in very fast, flooding will be massive!!!

    In Jeff Piotrowski news:

    He's managed to beat the surge off the island, but pulled off the road after getting caught up in an intense band under the CDO that at any other time might have been called part of a forming outer eye wall. 

    Now that that's passed, he's decided that he needs better cover for his car before the eye itself passes over him.

    Basically, he got caught out, and is now where he doesn't want to be. If he finds cover, it's the car wash all over again. If he finds the road blocked, he's kind of screwed.

    In modern internet parlance, he's looking for a blue shed.
