Here are the people that I remember needing prayer from the other thread:

NautiNurse - To evac or not?
cll - continued safety in the aftermath of Irma in Puerto Rico
I know I have missed a bunch of folk but please add to the list.
Thanks to all
My son left Palm Harbor about 1 PM today. I wished he could have left sooner but his work was still open until noon. He is on hiway 19 now at Homososa Springs, heavy traffic, slow going. He says he has 3/4 tank of gas. There is no gas at any gas station. I told him I do believe if he can get to I10 he should be OK. It is gonna be a nail biter.
I have been following this thing all afternoon. 930 mlb pressure and 150-155 mph sustained wind. It should do landfall tonight or in the AM around the Keys or Miami but it is so large that it doesn’t matter where the eye hits.
Some say “but building codes require 140 mph standards...”. This thing is 150+ now and still has a lot more of the warmest water it has seen to go. It ain’t gonna weaken, I don’t think.
I will update. Prayers.
