Collier County Florida – Get Into Interior Rooms…

The northern eye wall of Hurricane Irma is going to impact Marco Island (the Southern point of Collier County), within the hour.  Now is the time to move into your interior safe room for those in Collier County.    Collier residents will have about 2 to 3 hours of peak damaging winds beginning  about 45 minutes from now.

At 200 PM EDT (1800 UTC), the center of Hurricane Irma was located near latitude 25.6 North, longitude 81.8 West. Irma is moving toward the north near 12 mph (19 km/h), and a north-northwestward motion with a further increase in forward speed is expected later today, with that motion continuing through Monday.

On the forecast track, the center of Irma should move near or over the southwest and west coast of the Florida Peninsula later today through tonight. Irma should then move inland over northern Florida and southwestern Georgia Monday afternoon.

Maximum sustained winds are near 120 mph (195 km/h) with higher gusts. Irma is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. While weakening is forecast, Irma is expected to remain a powerful hurricane while it moves near or along the west coast of Florida. (link)

    Love and prayers to all in the path! 😘

    Referencing NIgella’s comment above: “Yes, but I want Irma to wind up being “Floridacided” – she was truly a NASTY woman.”

        Howdy neighbor. Looks like you’re watching the same weather I am. My brother, in Chesnee, is keeping me informed of every local weather alert, while I’m in charge of the bigger picture. Both of us should have been meteorologists. We tend to get glued to “weather”, but the best part is watching the local news desks go nuts. Fortunately, the meteorologists tend to be sane. Just today we were laughing about WSPA reporters breathlessly reporting a few flakes of snow on a car hood several years ago. Lord love us up here in the Upstate. We mean well. LOL.

      Lots of wind in Charleston, no rain yet. Been windy for almost 24 hours now, though. Decidedly cloudy – husband and I were out in the later afternoon yesterday, I was watching the clouds come in.

      These must be school supplies and things for the dorm room as we KNOW they are all jut getting their life together and going away to college! /sarc

      Pitiful to know that at least some of these criminals had grandparents, great uncles and aunts, parents and many people to whom they are not related that fought so hard for all people in the US to have a level playing field to be accepted into mainstream US society. And many have died to protect the US and continue to do so and they do not value our culture or civilized society and aren’t even trying to be valued citizens. They are wasting their liberty and freedom that has come at a dear price.

      Really very sad for them, their children and the people from whom they are stealing as well as the community that they are bringing down and the people in the community that will now pay higher prices.

      This kind of thing also make others less likely to evacuate next time

    Thank God, Irma has weakened considerably! Still a dangerous storm but nothing like it could have been. A full on CAT 5 with 185mph sustained winds would have been horrific. Even a CAT4 would have been bad. It’s breaking up and there is still danger and there will still be damage but the scale of damage is orders of magnatude reduced.

    DDD Report….1827…..Losing longitude….over dry land…Yee Haw…folks we got us a hurrycan. Jus a regular old hurrycan. Hot Dog! Did Trump build a wall between Tampa and Yucatan we did not know about? She never got out of Florida Bay. She hit the Gulf Stream and it knocked her down. Amazing Grace. She can’t recover from this. Irma is done for. She went left at Cay Sal when she should of went right. Allow me now to dedicate this song to Hurricane Irma…

    Typical Floridian. Even up here in north Georgia, when somebody is driving slow on the highway, we look for the tag and invariably it’s someone from Florida.
    Michiganders’ front tires are always over the white line at stoplights. When we were living in Newnan years ago, we got off the expressway onto Highway 34. About eight cars ahead of us was a car that stopped with its tires way over the white line. I said to my husband, “I know that’s a Michigander.” Sure enough, when we got close, it was a blue tag from Michigan.
    Up here, the ridge runners spend most of their time with part of their left tires over the yellow line in the middle of the road. I have learned to drive Close to the white line on the outer side of the road and away from the middle. One time I asked aloud why people up here did that? From the backseat, I heard my son say, “shiny.” He was referring to the reflectors embedded in the yellow line. cracked me up. 😂😆😎


    • Prettyplease says:

      Sorry was supposed to have a link to a funny meme about Irma driving slow up the road at 13 mph n causing havoc wherever she went. A little humor to lighten the mood, but the link from FB didn’t come through. Sighhh! Technology is sooo not my thing.


  42. Dustytoes says:

    Once my power went out Sunday night because of Irma, I really had no idea where it went or the damage left in Florida – because I just got power Saturday. Thats the thing about being IN the storm… left in the dark (and heat) for days afterward leaves you out of the loop of information.

      IKR!!!! The first “top of the scale ever” tornado hit in my area in 1999. We lost power 15 minutes before. Had no idea what was coming soon until I saw it with my own eyes. We were blessed, people died on the other side of a 20 acre field from us. I spent the next week or two doing just what Sd is doing in Fl. (It’s sometimes a blessing not to know)
