Naples is getting crushed with 130+ mph winds right now.
142 now reported in Naples. Wow. Pretty sure she's gathering her juice one last time before the core starts falling apart.
3 feet of surge in 10 min also reported just now in Naples. Here comes the water. Not good.
Irma has been downgraded to a category 2.

No time for celebration just yet. Downgraded yes. But the storm surge is coming now and that's the number one killer in hurricanes. Naples is getting a 7 foot surge right now and it's climbing fast.

Irma was downgraded to a topical storm. I saw on Fox News that there's 6.2 million without power.
Irma weakens to tropical storm, batters Florida with powerful winds as it heads north
Goes without saying, I hope any member of the forum who is in the area is okay. Going to Florida myself in a couple of weeks so very glad I missed it.
Well we have minimal structure damage, no power (up to 6 weeks they say) and clean up. Looters are out so cops are patrolling. I'm going back on Thursday, putting my stuff in storage and then looking for a place in the mountains. Looks like I get to move north sooner than expected. I'm not complaining about that though...I've had enough of the heat and hurricane season isn't over until November.
Good idea.....the high ground is good and not just for military purposes.
The satellite images show the Virgin Islands being completely stripped of vegetation.
Hurricane Irma wiped out so many plants that these Caribbean islands have changed colors
