    Annual end of Oct blockbuster

    Nevermind. Looks to be a Sunday deal or Sunday night into Monday which would be the 28th-29th interestingly enough. The GFS has a sheared inland mess in its 06z run but the FV3-GFS has a significant storm closer to the coast than the Euro albeit 35mb weaker than the said Euro. Hopefully they hold and others come on board as this would be the first fun week of tracking in the nor’easter season!

    So what date is the euro exactly showing for this? And it’s really showing hurricane force winds to the surface at the NE coast?

    Was Camille’s 175mph measured by an official Weather Bureau anemometer at the time or was it just an estimate based on damage?

    Yeah. I think those numbers were just for Mexico Beach. Being that almost every house seemed to have sustained damage and the majority of them are just foundations now I would think that we are far from the final number, sadly.

    Just saw on the news a FEMA Search and Rescue Commander saying they had a list of something like 253 people that they were aware of that stayed behind. Then the grim part was that they said “hundreds are still missing”. Not good

    It looked amazing on radar. A good third of the eyewall on that side had nothing less than 40dbz spread out 20 miles wide as I’m sure you know

    And they were supposedly on the weaker side of the eyewall although they were in it for a very long time as I don’t think that area actually got into the eye so they felt the full fury of the northern/northwestern/western and southwestern eyewall

    Unless of course a large amount of survivors have been found by now but I just haven’t heard of any numbers

    Wow. Yeah I’m more worried about the people they simply haven’t found yet with all those homes being damaged by the wind and just washed away by the surge. I would think that if those early numbers of people who stayed behind were correct, then there’s gotta be dozens more people that haven’t even been found yet

    Has anyone heard of any numbers when it comes to survivors? I think I remember hearing a couple days back that a couple hundred people stayed behind in Mexico Beach. Anyone know the latest on how many they have found alive?

    I’m pretty sure Katrina was a 920mb landfall. It might have gotten to 908mb at one point over the GOM but the lowest landfall measurement was 920mb I do believe. Could be wrong though

    Yes, but the point is still there. Normally do we ever see such strong winds 100 miles inland from a hurricane? Normally it’s rapid weakening. These are still areas that probably aren’t built to handle and have trees that aren’t supposed to handle winds like that, Cat 2 or Cat 3.

    Still have an Extreme Wind Warning associated with the northern eyewall of Michael over 100 miles inland from landfall. These warnings are usually confined to the immediate coast where a hurricane makes landfall. Incredible!

    Interesting how KEOX radar (Fort Rucker/Dothan, AL) went out exactly at landfall moment. Just a coincidence obviously but still cool to have that return as the one before it went out.

    These are the pictures I have been waiting to see along with Mexico Beach. Looks like defoliage everywhere. These two areas were in the western and eastern eyewalls the longest
