I'm trying to manage my workgroup in my boss's absence (about 57 people) - a workgroup that is taking a "couldn't care less" attitude. We're beginning our Alert status work, anchoring down things that could move easily, and relocating blowable stuffs to indoors. We're all trying to get serious, because if it heads Hurricane, and aims this-a-way, we won't have much time to prepare & run.

Currently, the NOAA "off the books" word we're hearing is Brownsville to Port Mansfield, 30-40mph winds near Seadrift (work).

My colleagues tell me I'm far enough inland that it'll seem like "a bad storm with some wind", but nothing more.

She's strengthening, and aiming a bit further south, towards Brownsville.

Well, Hello Dolly! She's now at hurricane status and expected to strengthen as she slows forward speed... BIG storm, lots of rain.

AngelSong...well you won't have to worry about the storm surge but your co-workers are downplaying the danger to property. I live in CT because of Hurricane Wilma.

Wilma hit Cozumel as a CAT 5 (winds of 150mph) then hit the west coast of Florida as a CAT 3 and was still a CAT 3 when it came over us on the other side of the state a mile from the beach in northern Palm Beach County. The year before we had the eye of two CAT 3's come over us from the Atlantic. My house survived those but did not survive Wilma which had travelled at least 100 miles over land (that storm had a huge eye...it took almost an hour for it to pass over, the backside was the worst..that is when I could hear my roof peeling off).

Bring on the Rain. First wave of storms hit our area around 4:30am. More to come, I'm sure.

I'll dig up the NOAA update shortly.
