    Indeed, pretty much driving through a river too. LOTS of water, hope they know what they are doing!

    Basically sounds like they are in the surge already.

    Couldn't jump over that downed tree though.

    The fact that he saw it and just sighed tells me he's a dab hand at this kind of driving lol

    Nah. They've gone a good ways north. Waaaay past Jeff's gas station awning.

    That's just freshwater flooding.

    As bad as things are, the track Irma has taken has actually been among the best-case scenarios in terms of minimising the overall wind and surge impacts.

    That they're still severe in so many places really puts the scale of the hurricane into perspective.

    It's always sad to see a once magnificent ocean-faring tropical cyclone turn ugly (usually quite literally due to terrain interactions) and impact land areas - let alone multiple land areas or in this case about a dozen (if all islands are counted separately). 

    Hopefully Jose can simply be a handsome, long-lived out-to-sea 'cane. Oh wait, it just got hit by some wind shear pretty hard... oh well! :pardon:

    Anyway - thoughts are with the countless populations currently suffering as a part of Irma's final chapter. Stay strong, Floridians.

    6ft now in 30mins, and the wind hasn't even swung round to a W or SW'ly yet...

    Scary. This sort of thing is why I said 'overall' impacts earlier... for every winner there's usually a loser :cray:

    The live footage has got to be some of the best live coverage we have seen for a hurricane, so many streams.

    Worth pointing out I guess that the sudden increase in water level is still at or slightly below the normal tide level, but if that rate continues then obviously there will be significant issues, especially once the winds swing round...

    Good point, for some reason I lost the ability to see blue colours for a moment there :rolleyes: but yes, if it continues, it's bad news in big ways.

    Hard to tell now. Seems the website's been knocked out.

    Worryingly, just before the whole website went 503, the naples station in particular stopped reporting.

    "Vertical evacuation". I think plain English would be more appropriate in these circumstances.

    WatchiNG CNN live in Naples. Getting worried for those people who have ventured out to have a look around. Storm surge still to hit and there's already freshwater flooding in the Main Street. 

    Prob another 20-30mins for the back end of the eye to come through and the subsequent storm surge
