I just checked, Irma is a category 6 or more [?] never happened before.  If it doesn't fizzle out, East Coast - Just get ready. Jehovah will take care of you, but do all what you can do. Like, now.

As of four hours ago, Irma was a Category 3 :

Irma has strengthened into a Category 3 hurricane.

Additional strengthening is expected as Irma moves westward in the week ahead.

Irma will move close to the Lesser Antilles by the middle of this week, and then near or north of Hispaniola, the Turks and Caicos and Bahamas late week into next weekend.

It remains far too soon to speculate on eventual potential U.S. impact, but East Coast residents should monitor closely.

When Sandy was coming along the Eastern sea board, I kept my eye on the weather channel.  So when it looked apparent that it was headed up my way, I went out a couple of days before it hit, and got necessary things for just in case it would drag out and destruction of some kind would happen.  Got some non perishable things, my emergency nap sack, medications, ins. papers, a couple of dollars, and went in-land as far as I could to get away from the bay (Chesapeake Bay, MD) where the waters would surge over the shores and houses down along the stretch of the shore line.     I didn't want to go alone, so I invited friends and made provisions for those who had a harder time (health issues) then myself to escape from the danger.    For those who couldn't leave, (like those in nursing homes, or paralyzed in bed or in wheelchairs and other illnesses where they could not be moved) I prayed for them to make it through the storm.

Fortunately for me, I do not live the end B) I am much more inland.

 

Where I live, we will not get any storm surge, but the wind and the rain can be really bad.

 

So far, they are still guessing on where it will go.

Oh ok, I googled Sky News, I didn't know this site. Interesting. Boy I hope everyone leaves.

Yes that was the link I was referring to...so sorry I will have to ask my daughter tomorrow, who is also on here, to show me how to post a link...as you can see I'm not computer savvy! 

Its very scary though, the FS knew what they were doing when we got the direction to prepare 'go bags'....Jehovah always prepares us ahead of time....:-)

Hurricane Irma is the strongest storm forecasters have ever seen develop in the Atlantic—and it’s so intense that scientific instruments have started confusing it with another terrifying natural disaster: earthquakes. Hurricane Irma is so strong it's starting to show up on seismometers in the Caribbean -- equipment designed to measure earthquakes.

Earlier Tuesday, the National Hurricane Center confirmed that still-developing Irma is the strongest storm it’s ever recorded in the Atlantic basin.

I just spoke to my brother in Naples.  He just closed on a condo on Aug 11th...and he's still unpacking and getting things set up.  Now this.  He does not have flood insurance.  

 

He said they are waiting for their meeting tomorrow evening...they are expecting a letter from the CO on instructions.

 

At least he can stay with me or our niece if needed.
