It's been days thus far watching The Weather Channel and local South Florida news as this little disturbance slowly grew from a mosh-most of clouds, into a depression, a tropical storm and a hurricane. It is slow moving as I write this and the computer projections, there are many, have it tracking toward Florida. The target location appears to be either Palm Beach or Martin County (on the east coast).

The storm early on was moving at 15 mph and today it's down to 10 mph, but growing in size and strength. The meterologists are speculating that this storm could gain in intensity and reach Cat 4 just east of Florida. Should that be the case and the storm continues toward the west and comes ashore, considerable damage will occur to homes, buildings and utility lines. Trees will be broken, knocked over and pose considerable danger with downed power lines. Flooding and storm surge will pose more problems.

My family lives about 60 miles south of Jupiter, Florida. It the storm hits in Jupiter, we will see considerable rain and wind strong enough to damage trees and utility poles and lines. Electrical service is likely to be disrupted for thousands go beleaguered home owners. If it hits Jupite head on, millions upon millions of dollars in damage is likely to occur.

The next 72 hours will be telling.

Thanks, Lee, I think we missed a fast ball to the head on this one, at least in Broward and Dade counties where nearly 5 million people live. Palm Beach, Martin, Lucie and Brevard counties on the Florida Atlantic coast are at risk right now. The Bahamas have been slam dunked and slam dunked and slam dunked. Devastation. Poor, poor people.
