Probably great for wind claims.  Not so much for storm surge   I don’t recall the last time we had 7 foot surge into the bay

After the debacle in Fort Myers last year surrounding late ordered evacuations, Tampa metro has to be very concerned about storm track and surge threat. Weren’t Zone A and B evacuated last year before Ian took a more southerly track? Tough decisions ahead.

Yes Ian evacs were issued for most TB coastal counties on 9/26.  
 

Really surprised Pinellas County hasn’t pulled the trigger yet, lots of folks at high risk even with current track.  MacDill AFB just went mandatory so would expect Hills and Pinellas to follow soon for Zone A.

 Hurricane Easy in 1950 (first landfall Cedar Key) produced a 6.5 foot TB surge, the largest since the 10.5 feet of 1921. At that landfall, Easy was a 958 mb cat 3 with 120 mph highest winds and was just crawling.

 Since 1950, highest surge I could find was 5 feet from H Gladys in 1968. It was a 100 mph cat 2 at landfall, which was 60 miles N of Tampa moving NE

Oh, it is going to happen soon. I just had lunch on the water at a Marina in South Pinellas County and even though pleasant right now, everybody knows we will not be eating lunch anywhere in the area tomorrow. ;)

Agnes in 1972, I was 11 and this was my second hurricane experience. I remember our favorite seafood restaurant was destroyed on Treasure Island. We had 5ft breaker waves in our driveway in the Pink Streets of St Petersburg after my Mom decided not to evacuate for some small storm. I remember the news calling it a 10ft storm surge.

What pilot wants to land in TS strength winds plus turbulence flying through bands?

 

Probably more than you'd think. But airlines don't cancel flights in situations like this only for safety. It's also to prevent planes from getting stuck there and messing up the rest of their network.

Hurricane models held landfall intensity at 12Z from strong Cat 3 to low-end Cat 4 tracking toward Big Bend

Last year on the morning Ian hit Florida Tampa Bay was in the center of the cone. Folks in Sanibel Island and Ft. Myers were relaxing thinking it was going to miss them to the west.
