Tropical Storm Andrea
National Hurricane Center ^ | 05 JUN 2013 | NHC

Posted on 06/05/2013 5:41:09 PM PDT by Old Sarge

And now we have our first named storm of the season, Andrea...

TS Andrea gained strength over the course of the day, becoming more organized; however the computer models form a consensus that the storm is not likely to reach Category 1 strength prior to landfall.

Andrea is projected to make landfall along the Florida coast between Crystal River to Apalachicola, with the Big Bend area most likely target.

Gulf Coast Florida is currently under a Tropical Storm Warning until 8PM Friday, from Boca Grande to Ochlocknee river. The southeast US coast is under a Tropical Storm Watch during the same period, north from Flagler Beach.

Tampa Bay to Apalachicola can expect a storm surge up to 4 feet. Andrea is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 3"-6" over much of Florida, the Panhandle, and southeastern Georgia, with isolated amounts of 8" possible.

Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the coast within the warning area by Thursday afternoon, making outside preparations difficult or dangerous. Isolated tornadoes are possible over the Florida Peninsula late tonight through Thursday.

I will provide updates as they are posted.

West Palm, eh? Just remember to do due diligence on storm prep in your area.

Don’t know where you live in Florida - will this one come to you? If it will, are your ready if power goes out?

If one starts in the Gulf or comes into the Gulf, I start watching. If it approaches Galveston or Beaumont, I get my emergency stuff ready. I need to get some ice if one heads this way and that’s it.

It’s been raining for days here, but the worst thing is the change in barometric pressure and the humidity.

It is SO unpleasant that the tropical air actually SMELLS of ozone..and not a Viking Kitty in Sight!

The Tribe and The Bunker are in the Tampa Bay area.

The core group at The Bunker is prepped and ready. We have secondary power and water sources ready to be deployed. We can even make our own ice...

The extended members of The Tribe are in vulnerable areas, and they know it; coastal areas, low-lying flood plains, double-wides, that sort of thing. All know what to do: evac routes to The Bunker, what to bring and to leave behind, and actions upon arrival.

We’re as ready as we can get for now...

We won’t lose power here. This is old-hat for long time Floridians. This is a rain event, plain and simple.

Expect road flooding and bad boating conditions through the weekend. That’s about it.

“We can even make our own ice...”

Send that to me.

The joke among Florida preppers is, “we roll over and hit the snooze button for anything less than Category 2!”

Don’t really want another hurricane to hit the northeast after all the whining and Obama-worship that came from the last one. You’d think they’d never seen a hurricane before.

A tornado hit The Acreage in Palm Beach County at 6:45 am EDT, injuring one person, damaging homes, and downing trees and power lines. Two other tornadoes were reported on Florida’s east coast, one in Broward County, and one in Palm Beach County. Andrea also spawned two tornadoes southeast of Tampa Bay between 2:30 am and 4 am EDT Thursday, but damage was minor. Most of South and Central Florida are under a tornado watch today.

The Bride is coming back early today. She is NOT about to get caught outdoors or on the roads in this slop.

We’ve gone under Tornado Warning again, until 1:30 EDT. That makes nine according to State EOC.

Yes ... I remember hearing a local news guy in Oklahoma City telling people to shelter OR get in their cars and go. My instant reaction was, “what, are you crazy???” That was the night those storm chasers lost their life. Staying off the roads is the wise move. Prayers up for Florida today.

Trying to figure this storm out. Here in SC, had bad weather and pouring rain all day yesterday from it. Today’s weather has been fair with little rain. I know it’s supposed to rain later but was expecting today’s rain to be worse as the storm gets closer. It’s not.

Oh, even better than the Glo-bull Warming crowd: the HAARP-seals!

I just got two of them banned on another website for throwing so much tinfoil in the air it turned into chaff!

I love hunting trolls!

OMG! The wind! The rain! The potential tornado! The huge manatee!

Thank God we have a steady Team* at the White House to help us through this George-Bush-Caused-Disaster in which women, children, and minority groups will be hardest hit, not to mention the LGBT Community who will suffer most cruelly.

*Ayuh, let's see now, we got Reggie. We got Valerie. WTF could go wrong?
