    Once that eye has sorted itself out she’s gonna fly to a cat5 surely! Florence is gonna have to be retired as a name after this is over...

    My friend is in Virginia and will be there for landfall. They're currently debating evacuating. I've told him not to take this thing lightly.

    Good call Azazel. I believe they have been ordered to leave so tell him do as they say as it will only strain emergency services if there is a problem. Pack up and go!!

    Azael, so' s my friend. They are going but all their neighbours just aren't bothered at all.

    Considering how far Bermuda is from this system, the wind is certainly picking up.

    There are so many cameras along the coast, you should see swells picking up very soon.

    Angers me when people are so pig-headed and refuse to evacuate. If they want to risk their lives, then fine, but there will inevitably be people risking their lives to try and rescue them when things go wrong.

    I'm sure evacuation  was mandatory  but a fool and his /her life is easily parted I guess

    Afternoon-

     

    Just checked in on Florence, after the ERC the eye is now perfectly clear & shows no signs of being ragged - in that its very circular, nice deep convection rebuilding around the core & cold cloud tops-

    If theres going to be a run @Cat 5 its just started....

    The warnings are being listened to, yesterdays populous beaches are replaced by deserted ones today, few folks walking and the town views clearing out.

    Pretty standard for all emergency evacuation plans in the US.  I've seen in put in practice for wild fires too. 

    I'd love to know whether the UK has any plans like that. Obviously it's less likely to be of use given the dearth of major events, but I'd like to think it's not "put the kettle on, man up and do your bit for Blighty".

    That's standard in Hurricane evacuations. If you end up on an Interstate in states like Florida, the Carolinas etc. you may see "Hurricane evacuation route" signs, these are the roads in question. Sensible idea really!

    Not sure if the servers have been powered down for this webcam network as I cant connect to a single one now.

     

    This site is. At least two surfers still in the sea.

    Technically its not. It just means no ones coming to help you if you call 911.
