I saw the thread on Hurricane Harvey got shut down so please if you guys could refrain from breaking WRX rules in this one.

I love weather, talking about it, researching weather patterns, yada yada. I have a love/hate relationship with hurricane season because I find it so intriguing and fun to watch but I hate the destruction they bring every now and then. I really feel for the people of Texas but I know they'll bounce back. I was watching TWC and saw there's a potential tropical depression heading there way. I doubt it has enough time to develop but the last thing the Houston area needs is another wave of thunderstorms with heavy rain. The most rainfall ever recorded was in Hawaii in 1950 - 52 inches. Some areas in Texas received 51.88 inches. That's insane.

Also, Cat 2 Hurricane Irma is headed towards the Caribbean and looks like my family in the Dominican will be right in its path. It's too early to tell but it's forecast to get to a Cat 3+ and potentially hit the east coast where I live. We just barely missed a tropical storm here in Wilmington this week.

Looks like this hurricane season could be a bad one based on our start.

Enjoy the chase.

Yup gonna be a wild ride this summer..here in south LA all too familiar with the tropics and watch them regularly during the season. Fascinating and frightening at the same time. Annual part of life here and I'm sure up the gulf and Atlantic coasts as well.  Feel for our neighbors to the west.

I believe climate change happens but that it is a natural cycle... but when you hear people saying global warming will alter our coastlines, I wonder if an increase in storm intensity over a period of say 5-10 years would do it

Irma is definitely an attention getter. She is heading down a pathway that could very well take her right up into the gulf. Still WAY too far out there to predict anything. But 100% certain it is one to watch.

And there is a depression forming in the gulf. A low pressure system that has been pounding us with rain here in Florida may drive it further west and south - we can hope - and prevent the Texans from having to put up with any more rain where they don't need it.

I have visited Texas. And Houston. It's an amazing and very special place in this nation. Here's hoping for a full speedy recovery.  My heart goes out to all of those affected. And OP I hope that your family is OK - scary storm out there.

We'll see. My family is in a poor town but they have managed to get through previous storms alright. Nothing we can do but wait and see what happens. I dealt with my first hurricane last year and thankfully it never made landfall. I'm excited but also fearful of this years hurricane season. It was much better watching from D.C.!

Enjoy the chase.

Checking in here for Irma , Minnesota native , Florida transplant in west palm beach . It looks like we'll be pretty much landfall position to my untrained eye . Miami -up to west palm is easily 7.5 million population wise . Not sure what that number is season /unseason but these cities are going to take a beating . Our campus is on the intercoastal so if we get bad flooding our campus will be underwater .

Still early but forecasts are calling for a FL hit and then it'll track up the coast at a Cat 3 or 4. Could be rough

Irma now Cat 5 with sustained winds of 175 and gusts of 215. That's no joke. Praying that the Carribean doesn't receive too much damage. My mom survived hurricane David in 1979 which was a cat 5 that hit 38 years ago this week. Over 2,000 people in the DR alone died with that storm. Irma is looking more and more like David
Enjoy the chase.

Now watching Irma very closely. Still way too far out to make any predictions more certain that "good possibility" but...
  • the local markets are completely out of water and canned goods
  • I have been told to be ready to report in Friday and stay for the "duration"
  • plywood is at a premium
I have lived in Florida for most of my life and have been through many, many hurricanes. Nothing worse than a strong 2. This thing is a monster with winds sustained at 185, millibars dropping which indicates strengthening, and a bunch of factors that look like she is going to hurt us here in Florida pretty badly.

Evacuation plans already taken care of. If I am called in my wife heads to safe area and waits until I call her and give her the all clear. Not the first time we have had to do this.

To be honest this is the worst part. I am referring to the waiting. And the uncertainty.

Needless to say the next few days are going to be challenging. And if Governor Scott orders the evacuation of one of the major metro areas - wowsers. Having been a part of that mess before you can imagine - cramming over a million people all at once on roads meant for 1/10th that traffic load with people panicking and rushing. Last time they did it the Bee Line (now Beach Line) was one way - all lanes went away from the coast and inland. Chaos. Pure chaos.

The mountains of Georgia are looking like a really nice place to retire.......

Praying for you. Hope it all goes well. I agree the worst part is the waiting and watching. Can't do anything but that. My moms dad is dying of terminal cancer and probably can't leave his town but if Irma hits the DR as badly as they're forecasting he and thousands of others will have a really big issue.
Enjoy the chase.

Praying for you and yours also. Those islands are so vulnerable. As bad as Irma might be here it will be a lot worse for those Caribbean islands in her pathway.

Very sorry to hear about your family member also. Any other words escape me to be honest. I imagine a tough, independent minded man whose main wish at this point in his life is to stay with loved ones in a place familiar. Little solace I know. Wish I could say more. Will be watching for her to turn a little perhaps away from a direct hit to the DR. Weather Channel is saying the turn north will happen - just no telling when and where.

I saw that! I also saw Delta online booking jacked up all their prices. $600 tickets were going for like $3,500

I was on the fringes of Yolanda's path when it hit the Philippines 4 years ago.

My company's small ships (400 GRT) had to run engines at 70-80% for 5-6 hours just to fight from being brought out of the safe coves they were already in.

I am part of the ManCom of a local NGO that only ended Yolanda related relief efforts 14months after it hit. the devastation was really unimaginable.

To think 70% of homes in my country are made from concrete (aside from the illegal settlers).

I pray for everyone in Irma's path.

I have cousins in Vero Beach FL who are no strangers to hurricanes, but this one has them worried.

I love Florida and have visited my cousins many times since the turn of the millennium. We even joined them on a cruise last summer, taking in the Dominican Republic, Puerto Roco, St Kitts and St Maarten. When stuff like this happens though it makes me thankful to be living in the British Isles, despite the dull and gloomy (and anti-golf) weather that we usually get.

My thoughts are with all those affected.

Watching it closely from Naples, FL. Looks like it is going to be a big storm. Hunkering down with wife and dog. Supplies are tight, but lots of beer in the fridge. Been through 6 hurricanes but this one looks bad. Prayers to everyone in its path.

Got word from the family in the DR and everyone is safe. There was some minor structural damage thanks to the storm veering north and avoiding a direct hit. There was a lot of rain dumped which resulted in some flash flooding and some coastal storm surge but other than that it's all good. I'd say this was the best case scenario. Hoping for the best for Florida, Georgia, South Carolina.

Side note...how crazy is that earthquake in Mexico?? What is going on with Mother Nature lately..
Enjoy the chase.

I live in Corpus Christi which was about 30 miles from where Harvey made landfall. we originally we're sticking it out no matter what being local news was reporting it would be a Cat 1-2 by landfall. Boarded up the house while it was a Cat 2 and then going from a Cat 3 to 4 was a little nerve reckoning to say the least. The winds started early Friday while we were getting more boards. filled up the generator and more gas tanks and hunkered down at my in-laws (our a/c went out 2 days prior and no repair was available until AFTER the storm passed). power went out around 8pm and was watching the winds/rain blow through as the storm made landfall (Friday night/Sat early morning). quite the experience. went inside after we didn't feel safe. tried to sleep but just a lot of noise and waiting until one of the big trees came crashing down. thankfully no major damage, a lot of down fences (my new fence survived!) and down limbs and uprooted trees. no flooding which was my main concern being how much rain they predicted we were going to get. unfortunately cannot say the same about Houston. a few friends had their houses flooded at least knee high. there's been a lot of local help rebuilding damaged homes out in Rockport and the surrounding areas. haven't heard or seen anyone get help from those big "disaster recovery" companies that advertise you to donate to them but that's a topic for another time. thankfully there's good people down here helping each other out.

In Naples and it's going to be an interesting 48-72 hours for sure!  Plenty of food, water, beer, etc.....  

The fact Irma is likely to traverse the entire state from south to north is nuts!

Great photo!
He's a "goofy footer" like I used to be when I surfed.

Got to ask. He is wearing a wetsuit. Water is still pretty warm - is he using that for sun protection?

My old haunting ground was 14th Street South in Cocoa Beach. Years ago they sank a tanker about a mile out to create a manmade barrier and it worked wonders for the waves from 12 down to 15. As locals we were very protective of that area. Those were the days!

Brisk September morning in NJ.  The sun rising over the ocean is why the wave has that glowing look to it.
