OT: Now for the Weather,,,It\'s going to get nasty

This Sucks !!!!!! We got hurricane coming almost directly at us. It's about 400 miles away right now, with the projected plot having the center passing less then 50 miles south of the our Island. But it has a potential path that could take it right over our town . It will be passing "South Point" at about 7 am, Monday morning, then it will be directly off shore from my town .

Good luck Wayne. Stay safe. You know it's the price you pay to live in such a beautiful place.

Wayne, keep us posted and make sure to let us know when it passes that you and yours are alright. We will keep track of it on CNN in the meantime. Good Luck! [img]images/graemlins/beach.gif[/img]

Wow, I've been complaining about all the rain we've got since I bought the Jeep. Guess that doesn't seem as important now.

Stay safe from the current radar you'll be seeing what it has shortly, I'm a former Floridian too and know hurricanes all to well.

Re: OT: Now for the Weather,,,It\'s going to get na

This is at 5pm sunday, moving past South Point at about 5am monday, expected to be 80miles straight off shore from Kailua-Kona @ 9am.
Expected 12" of rain, 100+mph winds and 20+ ft waves.

For a persective, the Big Island (in red) is about 230mile wide, this is a big storm,,,,,,



I'll post again in the morning,,,,,,,,,, if we still have power

Re: OT: Now for the Weather,,,It\'s going to get na

1:00 pm Hawaiian time.

Good news , for the time being. The storm's wind speeds dropped overnight. Right now the wind speed at the center is only 80mph and that speed radiates on from the center 30miles with 40-50mph winds out to 130miles. Also the path shifted sharpely to the south as it approched "South Point" in a kind-of a "hook" shape, moving slightly farther away from the Big Island. It's still about 90 miles south of our town and here a home, it's strangely calm right now, a little rain but totally still, no wind at all,,,,,,,not sure what to think about it. It seems to be moving away from us if it stays on it new path.
The other side of the island got about 15" of rain last night and some wave damage. the surf was in the 12 to 18 ft range along with an extreme high tide at 7:30 this morning. The water on our side looks like a lake, no waves at all,,,,,,very weird and a bit spooky.

Here's a good infra red loop of it current path, zoom in on the Islands, lower, middle of screen.

Re: OT: Now for the Weather,,,It\'s going to get na

Some friends are honeymooning on Oahu now, with the bus strike. In a few days they're going to Maui. I imagine the snorkeling isn't going to be very good. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] They'll just have to find something else to do. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Good luck. It looks like the worst of it will miss you.
