Exactly. Everyone thought it wouldn't be a bad storm, but it strengthened EXPONENTIALLY in only 2 days. Faster than anyone can prepare for.
That was the biggest problem here. Pat last week the weatherman was saying “oh we have this little system by the Yucatán, but don’t worry, it won’t even develop into a system” Then in a matter of days, like 2, it went from Tropical Storm at landfall to Cat 4 at landfall.
This is the worst kind of hurricane. The gulf coast is so shallow, that storm surge is the real threat here. All of the water from the gulf gets pushed up into the inland areas. We’re going to see massive flooding. It’ll make Houston and North Carolina look like puddles.
Glad you got out @UnrealCreative !
Thankfully for @Vigilante and I, we’ve only been getting a drizzle all day.
Sponge docks are flooded but that can happen any time we get a torrential rain storm.
Yeah, I saw Dunedin and Tarpon got some flooding. But, those places are pretty used to it for the most part. I’m working South Tampa today and it’s completely dry which is weird, because it floods so easily here too.
think it is happening so fast, no one is really doing anything. traffic blows anyway. hasn't started raining on our side of town yet.
Well, I am beginning to be a conspiracy theorist regarding weather.
I have little doubt that we (they, the military-industrial complex?) have the ability to produce some negative results especially as a weapon when needed..
A lot of scientists feel this trend is attributable to global warming. The same scientists forecast the occurrence of hypercanes before another decade is up. Let's hope they're wrong on that one.I can't remember a time when America had so many hurricanes in such a short period of time. I am no conspiracy theorist, but the amount of hurricanes America is dealing with is insane - it makes me wonder if there's really someone/something controlling our weather or is it linked to global warming phenomenon.
