    Kennedy Space Center in Florida preparing for Irma.

    The Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) was damaged during hurricane Ivan in 2004. It struck Florida as a category 3 hurricane.

    The pieces are all set. Every modal is in agreement. Category 5 landfall and direct hit for Florida. I'll get more maps as soon as they are available.

    Looks like she has a moon. Pretty amazing sight to see two hurricanes interacting with each other and stearing each other around.

    The storm has doubled in size the past 12 hours. It's beginning to churn back up and will make landfall in Florida aa a very strong catagory 5 probably right over Miami metro Saturday morning into Sunday night I can almost guarantee that.

    Eyewall will be right near to my home with the new track. No escaping the destruction and loss here. I'm really in shock right now. I will literally have nothing left. Anyway, have evacuated and yes...the roads and gas are as bad as shown on TV.

    Good news. She is beginning go WEAKEN. She ran into some dry air and is having a hard time doing anything about it. The eye is contracting thus it has been reduced to a category 4. Modals are still showing a cat 5 landfall over Miami but let's hope it continues to weaken.

    Hold on to your butts. Today's modal runs will tell exactly where it's going since it's about 24 hours from landfall. Let's hope out to the fishes.

    I saw this post when you posted it but was about to take off for Sydney for the weekend and knew it would take ages before I got a chance to comment... I'm glad you posted though.... so so relieved you evacuated ... I've been thinking of you and your family...

    I just read a news story not long ago where on woman said she spent over 6 hours driving around Miami looking for petrol (you call it gas?) and gave up and managed to get a flight out for herself and her 6 year old and then wherever it was she ended up, she then booked a bus to her preferred evacuation destination...

    Gravity waves starting to show, this is what happened just prior to going nuclear a couple days ago. I was wrong. She's gearing back up again... should be category 5 strength again by the end of the day.

    Anybody from the keys to Miami should start praying to any God you may worship if you plan on staying. This run pans out the keys will be underwater because of a 30+ foot surge.

    Seems like my good friend isn't leaving Miami and she is going to ride it out there. Promptly told her that it's an incredibly stupid decision. To late for her to even try now too. No gas to get anywhere. Jesus.
