Hurricane Irma appears to be headed straight for Florida, and will turn to run directly from south to north right up the length of the peninsula. The devastation will be indescribable, far worse than anything in living memory. The damage will run into the trillions of $ and many areas will never completely recover. The shock to the US economy will make 2008 or 1929 look like a day at the beach.

It will be a week before they have any idea where the storm is going to hit and then they won't be sure until it actually hits.

Its all bs these ppl live in flood plains and decide flood insurance is not needed then cry about not getting help from government .

I personally lived in flood plain i moved instead of paying for insurance .

Why 85% of Houston homeowners have no flood insurance

Flooding isn't generally a problem in Florida. It can be in some places. Storm surges from hurricanes will flood the Keys, but the mainland generally doesn't flood. The homes should do ok, also. For decades the building code has required poured block with rebar on solid slabs. There would be damage, but not like you see in Houston or New Orleans. Wilma was a cat 4 when it hit SoFlo and most of the damage was to roofs and infrastructure.

The latest GFS model shows the storm coming dangerously close to Miami and the surrounding towns, then running right up the coast all the way to where the coast angles out to the northeast. There the storm intersects the coast, making a landfall at or near Charleston SC. It will either be another Andrew or another Hugo, a Hugdrew if you will.

It's a massive, powerful and well formed storm. We will definitely be headed inland to a friend's house if it comes up the east coast of Fl. My family in the Keys is already boarded up and pulling out this morning. This storm is no joke.

One thing, ignore the shit about 50 foot waves. Those will never reach shore. Talking about them is merely for dramatic purposes. 50 waves are fairly common but as the water gets shallower they get smaller. You can't have 50' waves in shallow water. The size of the waves is limited by the depth of water. The bigger the waves the more water you need. Even during hurricane Wilma, which was a cat 4, the waves at the beach were only about 15'.
