  1. Can't wait !!!!
  2. Lawdog, great info thank you !
  3. I posted this in another thread but maybe this is a better spot to get an answer Can anyone predict the storm surge of Irma and how many feet it will be ? I know that much depends on the track and I understand that with the rotation of the storm that when Irma hits the East side of the storm would get counter clockwise strong winds and then later as Irma continues up Florida to the North the backside of the storm and rotation would now surge on the West and back side of the storm------> do I have that correct ? Also I just watched the weather channel and they showed a chart for the predicted storm surge and they were saying max 6 to 9 foot surges on the West side of Florida and not much for Miami or the East side so Im confused ? A 6 to 9 foot surge would do tremendous damage but I read many pages back where mets on this thread were saying the surge could be 15 feet or higher , would the fact that Irma has been heading this way for days and had time to build up the surge effect the height of it , I would think yes . Does the weather channel have the potential max surge numbers wrong ?,,,,,,thoughts and answers appreciated .

  5. Bob thanks for the reply they are absolutely in Boynton Beach they are by Jog road and Boynton Beach blvd its between 8 and 9 miles away its concrete but Im sill worried about the roof ,,,they have their shutters . I could NWS but as I said they are stubborn and not leaving . What about the canals that are used for drainage during storms do you guys have any input ,,,do you think they backup ?
  6. Hope you guys can add some insight,,,,I have family /in laws in Boynton Beach,they refuse to leave. Its about 9 miles from the beach so initially I was not worried about flooding but very concerned about wind damage . BUT then I remembered that they have a few canals nearby that I fish at with the kids when we go ,,these canals are drainage canals that I know empty into the everglades but not sure if they drain into the ocean as well ? Are any of you familiar with these drainage canals in the Boynton Beach Florida area and should I be more concerned with them ? They were specifically built for the overflow from storms and to prevent flooding but if they are in anyway connected to the sea my thinking is that the water will not drain with the surge and the wind going the opposite way, but overflow,,,,,,AM I MISTAKEN to being worried about these ? Also if you lived in Boynton Beach and these canals are not an issue would you ride it out or leave ? Very worried about them they are being stubborn ! Thanks for any answers in advance
  7. Family in Boynton Beach Florida , I am ver concerned and want them to come up North to NYC but they and many in their community are not concerned and are going to stay put,,,a little help guys and girls how bad will they get it ? Appears Irma will hit the East Coast of Florida hard according to the latest GFS,,,Euro this afternoon should be telling. You think it actually hits them as a CAT 5 and how do I get these people to get out of dodge ?
