    Cape Coral Yacht Basin facility just went thru the eye and winds have reversed and now south west at 112 sustained with gust to 129. Kudos to whoever mounted the weather station and got it high enough above the storm surge. (They supposedly can withstand 200 mph)
    Regardless, Cape Coral is completely under water

      Update, none of the 7 or 8 weather stations I was monitoring have survived. Only a few in the bay on buoys are still operating because they float ☹️

    Playing dodgeball with Mother Nature is a bad idea….

    It’s hurricane porn and I’ve been watching it. The family has a vacation home on a channel near Port Charlotte and I’m waiting to see what the surge is going to be in Charlotte Harbor. High tide at 18:04.

    I think ole Jim Cantori is realizing he’s getting a bit long in the tooth for his gig.

    So well down the list of most severe hurricanes.. Michael, Ida, and Irma (all in this century) still beat it out by miles… The alarmism wagon rolls on..

      In terms of wind, perhaps. Overall, no

      In terms of storm surge not even close, but that had to do with the location and speed of the storm, not the intensity

  5. Timo, not that one says:

    Funny. I see a whole lot of trees still standing. If this was the worst of Ian (I doubt that) it is far below a category 4 storm.

    The stationary crawl at the bottom of the screen says this is, “The Worst Of Hurricane Ian In Fort Meyers.” I didn’t know young palm trees and their fronds fluttered like that with gusts over 100 mph. I really didn’t know that. Thanks to The Disaster Channel, now I know.
