I recall the constant wind noise here from Irma a couple of years ago when it was a borderline Cat 1. Can't imagine the roar of this storm as long as it has sat there.

I went through Andrew when I lived north of Homestead, the eye went directly over us, and the few hours of wind on either side of the eye felt like an eternity. I can't imagine over a full day of that wind. A hellish nightmare...

It's stationary. Those people who didn't evacuate or find a solid structure are going to be in terrible shape.

I knew a couple of guys that had property in Freeport. They mostly lived in FTL. Anyone with any $$ went to FTL or PB days ago. Those without means,,,yeah, hellish, unless friends/neighbors helped them get across the 60 miles to the US.

The reports are so totally poignant. We on the east coast have been spared at such terrible terrible cost to others. I feel so horrible.
