Tropical Storm Irene has developed from Invest 97 in the Western Atlantic Ocean, east of the Leeward Islands.

Yeah, I have one. Used it this summer when a big honkin maple limb came down in a storm.
No, Floyd didn't stall out over NC -- it came through essentially like a "normal" hurricane....and just like Irene is currently forecast to do. The problem with Floyd was that it followed Dennis... and it was such a big storm.
Here's the Floyd track... looking similar, though Floyd started further north and thus east of the Bahamas.
I do vividly remember that beast chasing me up the coast of Florida as I evacuated my inlaws to Western NC. The evac orders were being issued as I passed every city up to Savannah.
Between that and the earthquake, I think God is trying to say something.
I remember Floyd was still a Category 5 (150mph+) when it was only a hundred miles offshore from us, and then by the Grace of God it dropped dramatically in speed just as it came ashore. Scary times...
Hey, while he's there why doesn't he dispatch the Secret Service in those 40 vehicles and round up all the cash from the rich folk amongst the grape vines? Then again, that's his secret plan isn't it?
Disclaimer: yeah, it is a weather thread but you weren't expect politics on Free Republic???
God is always trying to tell us things... yeah, sometimes he has to yell to get our attention.
That's an understatement of fact
Mine as well throw in my silly ones.....

We’re still at the tail end of the thing, and we’re still getting WAY more rain than when the bulk of the system went over us yesterday morning. Big system indeed.
Stay safe cll,it’s headed to us now.We have a shore place that is rented.They might have to evacuate according to where this lands.We are 2 blocks from the beach.Scary times.
Be careful. Prayers up.
WOW. Just WOW!
Thank goodness for Virginia’s barrier islands. However, I’, still equ-distant from the bays created by them on the Atlantic Coast and the Chesapeake Bay. I’m going to be seriously rethinking my weekend plans.
A Tropical Storm Watch has just been issued for Broward and Palm Beach counties. First watch/warning issued for CONUS so far.
From 5:13pm EDT until further notice.
Do you have a source reference link for this statement? I can only find a reference for a marine advisory. Nothing for land. Thanks.
Sorry no. I get text alerts from mobile.wrh.noa.gov/SMS
While I’m typing this a “Special Hurricane Statement” was just issued for Broward and PBC. It says “high surf and dangerous rip currents” “watches and warnings not in effect” I’m not sure what that means considering the previous text, maybe someone accidentaly hit a button LOL. Any cancellation usualy gets a separate text.
The special statement says: “showers and occasional squals...gusts to 30-40mph in SE FL. Chance of stronger gusts possible in PBC.”
OOPs, sorry about that SMS address:
“iNWS is an experimental service intended for NWS core partners, including emergency managers, community leaders and other government agencies only.”
