    At this point I think we can pretty much agree that the keys are $#@!ed. If it rips up the west then you're gonna see Andrew damage. Marco Island, Naples, Fort Myers, Sarasota. If it tracks that way, on latest models, you will see Andrews level or worse.

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    Florida-bound Hurricane Irma strengthens back into a Category 5 as it makes landfall in Cuba

    Hurricane Irma is forecast to hit the Florida Keys as a Category 5 storm.
    Meteorologists expect Irma to make landfall in the Keys between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. ET on Sunday. Overnight projections of Irma's path showed less of a threat to the Carolinas as the monster storm appeared likely to move directly up the middle of Florida and curve inland.

    The National Weather Service's Key West office issued a dire warning in the wake of the updated forecast.
    ***THIS IS AS REAL AS IT GETS***
    ***NOWHERE IN THE FLORIDA KEYS WILL BE SAFE***
    ***YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO EVACUATE***

    — NWS Key West (@NWSKeyWest) September 8, 2017
    "Obviously Hurricane Irma continues to be a threat that is going to devastate the United States," Brock Long, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), said at a press conference Friday morning. "We're going to have a couple rough days."
    The National Hurricane Center on Friday cautioned that Irma is "extremely dangerous," with maximum sustained winds of 155 mph, which are strong enough to uproot trees, bring down power poles and rip off the roofs and some exterior walls of well-built frame homes.

    The National Hurricane Center issued its first hurricane warnings for Florida overnight, warning residents that "preparations to protect life should be rushed to completion."
    Mandatory evacuation orders have been issued for barrier islands, coastal communities, low-lying areas and mobile homes across Florida, including the counties of Brevard, Broward, Collier, Indian River, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Palm Beach and St. John. According to the Florida Division of Emergency Management, 5.6 million Floridians have been told to evacuate.

    Hurricane and storm surge warnings for Florida as of early Friday, Sept. 8, 2017. (ABC NEWS)

    Meteorologists predict Irma will continue to weaken as the storm moves inland Sunday into Monday. Irma will approach Jacksonville on Monday around 8 a.m. ET with winds of about 75 mph, which would make it a dangerous Category 1 hurricane. Then, Irma should weaken rapidly to a tropical storm, depression or a remnant low later Monday as it moves across state lines into Georgia, then potentially Alabama and Tennessee on Tuesday into Wednesday, meteorologists say.
    Disney World announced in a statement Friday afternoon that its theme parks and water parks -- as well as Disney Springs and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex -- would be closing early Saturday and remain closed through Monday. Disney's resort hotels will remain open.
    The worst of Irma's winds and storm surge are projected to be near Marathon and Key Largo, but meteorologists say Miami and heavily populated southeastern Florida will still be on the strongest side of the storm.

    If it goes up the Gulf Coast it will be brutal. They haven't been whacked for almost 100 years.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    GTFO. This isn't the first time they've been hit. When I was there in the 80's the weather forecasters always ominously intoned that we were seriously overdue for The Big One.

    Reading bad reports from places already hit. Looters and panic setting in, people are trapped on the islands with a bunch of sub humans.

    Keys are going to get obliterated, and man, Fl must have pissed off the gods. Looks bad.

    It keeps tracking west. If it continues to do so, it may well skirt the Florida mainland as it has Cuba and make landfall further up north.

    My kid is in Clearwater.. plans to ride it out. Her house is 54' above sea level.. I keep saying the wind doesn't care about sea level but just in case she's got bug out stuff and her cat carrier all set and is ready to come here.. about an hour north in normal traffic.

    We are lower in elevation but further inland and much better prepped here

    Just watched an old video from "Georges" some neighbors made for Hurricane relief. That was Cat 3.. (memories)

    This one looks like it will be a mess..

    Stay Inside. Stay safe. and make new friends rebuilding.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    There are large portions of Clearwater not in evacuation zones. When I checked earlier, they were evacuating A and B. Plus mobile homes of course. But if I was a C, I'd be considering a road trip about now.

    https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/florida-gun-owners-encouraged-apos-213111921.htmlA Florida man who suggested shooting guns at Hurricane Irma out of "stress and boredom" has found that his idea has captured peoples' imaginations - with over 46,000 signing up to join in.Hurricane Irma is due to hit Florida on Saturday, and the state is currently experiencing the largest ever mass evacuation due to a hurricane in American history.But Ryon Edwards, 22, came up with a novel way of amusing himself during the storm: firing bullets into it.He started a Facebook "event", and as of Friday evening 46,000 people say they are interested."A combination of stress and boredom made me start the event," he told the BBC."The response is a complete and total surprise to me."I never envisioned this event becoming some kind of crazy idea larger than myself. It has become something a little out of my control."Graphics suggesting how to shoot at a hurricane have sprung up online, with the suggestion that if you fire correctly the bullet might not come back and kill you.Since Mr Edwards came up with his "masterplan", other similar Facebook pages have been created - including one suggesting using flame throwers to scare away the storm."It's time we took a stand against this bully!" reads the event description. "This is our home, nobody drives us out of our own territory."Join me in this fight as we shoot flames at Hurricane Irma and dissipate her on the spot."

    Good luck trying to get out now. Most stations from Tampa south were out of gas and diesel. Even tow companies were having trouble keeping their trucks fueled to stay operational.

    seeing as it is a 100 miles north, on the mainland, and on the opposite side of the coast from where the storm is supposed to travel now, that's an easy bet to make.
