    Thanks for all the extra info posted here Josh. I really enjoyed your video. Even my girlfriend was glued to the screen watching and she typically couldn't care less about me nerding out on weather haha. Quick reminder to everyone that Jim Edds footage is airing on the Weather Channel at 7:30 EST in a 30 minute episode.

    2019 East & Central Pacific Season

    Can't blame the NHC as it was an extremely difficult forecast with Mario so close by, but what an insane track change with Lorena in just one advisory.

    Big ridge on euro but trough coming across the central conus will eventually turn it. Also notably weakens TD 10 as it approaches the Bahamas.

    Fun conditions at this Buoy! 39ft wave height earlier this morning. https://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=44011

    Posted this over in the Dorian thread but figured I'd post it up here as well. Some wild footage from Hope Town via Jim Edds. Canada sure looks like it's going to get whacked. Quite the impressive structure for where Dorian is in the Atlantic. I'll probably take a drive up to Salisbury beach tomorrow to at least check out the surf.

    Jim Edds just put out some footage from Hope Town.

    According to James Reynolds he probably didn't. If I recall correctly they have been on some chases together in the WPAC so it's about as a reliable source we can get at this point.

    Aerial footage coming out of Abaco now is pretty unreal.

    Dorian racking up the ACE for the Atlantic and still has a way to go. Should join the pretty exclusive list of Hurricanes producing more then 40 ACE.

    Ya it would have been close I think. Plenty of videos out there that seem to show a 20ft plus storm surge and thats what the NHC put out in there warnings as well. Hopefully he checks in at some point today. Here's the map I pulled the elevation from.

    Here is the location on google maps if I'm right. https://www.google.com/maps/place/26°32'23.0"N+77°04'47.0"W/@26.5402011,-77.0780259,2958m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d26.5397222!4d-77.0797222

    From what I've gathered this is where he was located. Roughly ~25ft ASL. Looks like a solid structure but appears like its only 1 story tall. He's on this persons search listed as not found but who knows who reported that. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1M9wVx_Krgzb2cycTOGF4ZsS5JDrvRGwggCblUGtq6II/mobilebasic "Morgerman, Josh (Central Abaco Primary School, Marsh Harbour, @iCyclone)" I'd take it with a grain of salt for now. Josh knows what he is doing and like you said in previous extreme storms he's gone days without contact.

    Unfortunate news out of Abaco with 5 deaths being reported now. Hopefully that number doesn’t rise any further. Looks like US Coast Guard is helping out flying out the injured in helicopters as well. https://mobile.twitter.com/ZNSBahamas242/status/1168635282427715584 https://mobile.twitter.com/ZNSBahamas242/status/1168636172140261377

    http://moe.met.fsu.edu/~mnissenbaum/RadarArchive/KAMX/loop.html Too soon to say, but looks like it has almost completely stalled out hopefully sparing the most densely populated areas of Grand Bahama.
