I just read... the 5th most powerful landfall based on windspeed - YIKES!

My friend's parents moved to Cape Coral a few years ago, I think this is their first hurricane experience. And they did NOT evacuate.

it is also an extremely slow-moving storm, which just makes it even worse.

It's supposed to pass over here (just north of Orlando) just under hurricane strength, at about 70mph. We've had rain for about 24 hours straight now, and the winds are picking up. These things always seem to hit us in the middle of the night, which is the prediction yet again.

Holy @#$%&!! I hope they're doing alright. Cape Coral is just about ground zero. I hope they are well above ground and don't feel any need for electricity any time soon.

From Facebook, I see that one of my local San Diego friends decided to take a trip to Cape Coral, and is stuck there now.

He was posting regular updates about every 1/2 hour, but the last one was over two hours ago now (it showed the street outside the house he's staying at completely flooded; previous posts showed the winds getting stronger and stronger, including a few glass panels ripped off of the enclosure that surrounds the house's pool/spa).

Storm surge flooding depths in hardest hit areas:

* Englewood to Bonita Beach, including Charlotte Harbor...12-18 ft

* Middle of Longboat Key to Englewood...6-10 ft

* Bonita Beach to Chokoloskee...8-12 ft

Couple that with 155-190 mph winds, the wave heights will be incredible.

Anyone who stayed put in those areas will lose their life.

Everyone who is there or knows someone who's there, please be safe. There is no reason to take any risks with a storm of this kind. Hopefully most folks evacuated.

Also ... I noted this before ... what the heck is that huge "tail" that extends all the way up the Eastern seaboard?:

There coincidentally happens to be a stationary frontal boundary along the coast, and presumably you are seeing Ian feeding moisture into it?



Though the wind map suggests the wind is coming down that front from the north: [www.windy.com]

If for not that front, Ian would have been a strong Cat 5.

Is Ian feeding moisture into it, or is it feeding moisture into Ian? (Isn't the stuff far north basically the remnants of Fiona?)

At the surface, the winds are moving SW along the front we are discussing. But if you go to higher altitudes (the "winds aloft"), the winds are moving NE along the front. Ian is sucking in all the surface air, the air is rising, and spilling out the top of the cyclone. That air is in the north-easterly flow in the winds aloft.
