As Irma has skittered westward 100 miles or so from the previous track the maximum wind speeds for my area of the East coast are predicted to be in the 75 mph range with gusts up to 100 mph.

Already feeder bands of heavy rain and 40 mph gusts are coming through this area which is about 120 miles north of Miami.

The hot topic on the news is the discovery of a number of pets abandoned by their owners.

The power will probably go out during the night so I'll say adieu and wish me luck

They are from the government's official national weather service site. They have one for each radar installation.

They actually have a webpage to go around each graphic, but the webpage doesn't really do anything besides hold the graphic in place. I used to have dialup until fairly recently, and downloading the graphic directly was a lot faster than downloading the entire webpage, especially if a storm was coming and I just wanted a quick look at the radar before shutting down the computer. I've had the links for the local radars in Michigan bookmarked for as long as I can remember.

All I did was look up the codes for the Florida radar sites on this map and then substitute those codes into the links I use for my local radars:

@ehBeth,
Sarasota got pummeled. In fact , I had no desire to head West towards the eye of the storm.

Miraculous survival describes how I feel this am.
If you've never watched trees bend in 125 mph wind as I did last night on my back porch, it's ...I'm at a loss for words.
My power and internet are still on. Kudos to Florida Power & Light and Comcast.
All in all I am very thankful .

We were in an emergency shelter from Saturday night at midnight until Monday morning at about 7 AM. We lived on a blanket on the floor of a 2nd grade class room together with several other families. The Red Cross was superb and the other guests were all exquisitely polite. There was no damage to our condo, although I saw many downed trees withing a mile of my home. The power in our home came back on Tuesday morning at about 5:30 AM. Many of the people I work with still don't have power. Now I just have to figure out what to do with all of those batteries and candles.
