They are in an area where Matthew could potentially make landfall. Gut feeling is it'll be north of there, but I think it's foolish they did not evacuate. It will still be very bad for them.

They're screwed too.

Category 1 or 2 force winds. 3 to 5 inches of rain. Brutal.

Isn't that the Grand Bahama Island that the eye just brushed? I would say they must have experienced 130 MPH sustained at least. Gusts to 150 to 160!!!

I have a rental house in Saint Mary's, Ga, which is just north of The FL border. According to charts, my house will flood with a 10 foot storm surge. What are your thoughts on storm surge in that area? Is there a website to monitor to follow current storm surge as it happens? I have seen 7-11 feet are expected so it is going to be close....

Follow this link snd zoom in on your house. If you see red spots that means it will flood.

Thanks Frank! Good link. I am currently in the blue area, but will keep checking back over the next 36 hours or so. I've been through several hurricanes being from Pensacola, but this one is a beast!

Outer eyewall approaching west Palm beach. This thing has 2 eye walls. Inner and outer. Not good because the outer eye wall contains hurricane force winds so they will expand over a large area

Yes sir. Same things you guys do up here in the snow. The key is to do so away from the water. I lost my house in Ivan because of flooding, but was safe about 30 miles inland at my in laws house. Storm surge is brutal and unforgivable. That storm changed how I view hurricanes before. If I am even close to water I'm leaving without asking a question in the future!

That radar looks healthy and impressive!!  The eyewall demolished the western half of Grand Bahama for 3 hours with cat 4 winds.  Has to be horrendous damage.

Latest Official NHC track is about 30 miles offshore at it's closest approach.  Hopefully theyre spot on.

I just spoke with my relatives in Orlando. They said that this afternoon they tried to get something to eat. The mall: closed. The supermarket: closed. The only place open was a Chinese restaurant where they had to wait 30 minutes just to get a seat, but it was the only option they knew of. There were no flights they could get to that would have gotten them out in time so they have to ride it out in the hotel. They have told me that they have rearranged flight plans to fly out of Orlando on Saturday morning to go to Charolette, NC before flying from there to NYC. I told them two major issues with that. 1) Charolette may be in the rain bands of Matthew before it loops around. 2) Potential destruction in Orlando could wreak further havoc on the flight schedule. But they told me that its the best they could do. This is a couple in their 40s and three kids ages 15, 13, and 8.

When they first told me last August that they were going to Florida in early October, I immediately thought, "What if a hurricane strikes?" But I couldn't say anything because they would have yelled at me calling me a pessimist. (Actually, whenever I hear about vacation plans for anybody, I often bring up potential weather threats that could crash it and they are fed up with it so they have told me to keep my mouth shut)
