    I think I saw a number around 50 for people who are still unaccounted for out of the 250 that stayed behind.

    When you look at the amount of territory Leslie covered it's pretty awesome. She covered some ground out there.

    after seeing that video anyone in here still saying this was a cat 2 or even 3 should be banned as a pure troll. Winds that strong are rarely recorded unless inside tornadoes or the most powerful top end hurricanes we ever see hit land.

    I would think the timing would have to be perfect for an object to get stuck in a crack in a tree flying by at 140+mph.

    The hrrr did a horrible job for my neck of the woods. Barely gusted to 40 when it was showing we should have had 55 to 65. Guess it all depending on the mechanism for bringing the gusts down.

    I'm supposed to work 12 hours tonight but if we really start to see this band form and we really might see gusts to 50-65mph then i'll likely call out. Not gonna leave my wife and 2 yr old home by themselves. tough call for me to make.

    Parts of Mexico beach look like a tsunami hit. Just slabs and mounds of debris. Gonna be a very long time for them to recover. Any word on if that entire train was flipped by wind or water?

    There's been a couple pretty impressive videos pop up that show some serious winds

    couple videos show some very serious winds and the damage looks pretty significant in parts of the panhandle. Still have no idea what to expect here. Models suggest big winds in the 55-70 range but extreme solutions almost never come through for us.

    The eye is still kicking ass on sat loops and hasn't buckled yet. Looks like forward speed maybe be bumping up like anticipated.

    I know us NC guys are focusing on what we may see because of how close this is on the heels of florence. The real story is the likelihood of hurricane force gusts through most of southern Georgia and catastrophic winds in Florida. Gonna be millions and millions of people out of power for a very long time.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but isnt this a 20mb drop since the 5am update that had him at 943?

    The eye really clearing out and expanding now and i bet this makes a run at cat 5. We've seen the MB go from 943 to 931 in just the last couple hours. I really hate it for those people who stayed behind thinking this would be low end cat 3. This is a nightmare scenario thats been discussed before. A storm that RI as it hits land and goes from bad to holy hell bad just prior to landfall preventing evacs.

    No Maria hit PR and then missed the east coast.

    This is a much bigger concern for you Florida and Georgia guys but the concern this far north is the wet ground from Florence (even though theres been a lot of drying) could mean any weakened root systems could be in jeopardy if winds get too high. So while we are not expecting nearly the weather y'all could be in for the concern is anything over 50mph in gusts could down already weakened trees here in SC/NC.
