  1. Sun hasn’t even come up yet and we’re pushing 5”. For awhile earlier it was 3.5-4 in/hr rate
  2. We have three separate tornado warnings for Myrtle Beach right now. The weakest of the three was coming right at our house but a decent gust of wind could end up being the tornado going by
  3. Visible satellite just starting to reappear. Anxious to see what it’s showing around the core
  4. I’m pretty confident that I speak for everyone, including moderators, when I say that there’s no way this is “banter” worthy. Josh is someone we all respect and care about, and info regarding his safety and whereabouts belong on THIS thread!
  5. Some people in St Thomas were stuck for a month or more after Irma. The runway of the airport morgerman flew into yesterday will be peeled away today. Wonder how long it’ll be before the footage becomes available?!
  6. Never found this one before....has been added to my “weather” favorites folder. Thanks for sharing!!!
  7. It was mostly 0.5-1.0” the whole day. It was more of a steady rain than torrential downpours for the most part
  8. Seems we are entering what’s left of the “eye” here just west of Myrtle Beach. Had a good bit of heavy rain and wind around 7:00-8:00, and it has calmed to a drizzle and lighter winds. Interested to see if it calms more the next hour or so...
  9. I was almost 9 when Hugo hit. I can’t imagine the effects now with the population and building that has taken place since...
  10. just a few miles from you in Forestbrook
  11. We just had a few minutes of freezing rain here at the house. We're about halfway between Myrtle Beach and Conway. 30° at the house so it's already about to go downhill here
  12. Confused...why is anything being deleted in this thread? I thought this was the thread to say whatever (within reason of course...)?!
  13. If Jose sticks around, but continues to fall apart like he has been, would Maria still get turned out to sea more than likely, or if Jose gets weak enough, would the high over the Atlantic shift back West and turn Maria toward the U.S.?
  14. Anyone have any thoughts as of now? The Euro shows an Outerbanks landfall on 9/26
  15. Hello. In the past, I had a small wireless thermometer that would cause our home alarm to give false calls to the alarm company. It was the strangest thing, as it would happen numerous times, and I could never figure out what was going on. Finally our alarm company came out, and luckily the technician had seen this problem before with somebody else, and was able to diagnose the issue for me. Once I turned off the thermometer, it's never happened since (3+ years ago). My question is, I'd like to get a good weather station (wireless) for personal use at home. I'd like one with a good anemometer. Can anyone recommend a good weather station that wouldn't cause that interference? I've noticed that a lot of them run on 433mhz, which is the main reason I need some advice...because unfortunately that's what our home alarm runs on as well :-/ Thank you in advance!
  16. Our friend's in-laws condo is on the left at 3:08. I wish I could get a better look at their building...I know they're worried sick about it but haven't gotten much information yet
  17. I would think Irma would have been "retired" just for this fact alone. After what we're seeing from the islands yesterday, it's a given now. That St. Maarten video someone shared about an hour ago on here is just tearing me up. Such a beautiful island...damn you Irma!
  18. I'm 36 now...I remember it vividly! Surfside/Garden City looked like Hiroshima. The forest where the eye hit was nothing but 25-30' tall sticks. It's what took my interest in extreme weather from being intrigued to becoming a full blown fanatic! heh
  19. Simply put, time. You will potentially have the southern third of Florida evacuating in the next 3-4 days
  20. maybe premature. Immature is a bit much...
  21. As a sub-900mb hurricane nonetheless. And we live just a couple miles from KMYR
  22. I get it. Living 3-4 miles from the coast in Myrtle Beach, some of these models aren't what I want to see. On the the other hand, my complete fascination by them after seeing what Hugo did as an 8 year old, I can't help but want to experience the power of one. But priorities change and doing crazy things like storm chasing or "riding out" a cat 4 go to the back burner when you have a family. When I was single I would've in a heartbeat!
