All I can say to you is mentally get ready but know theres still so much time for changes. What would be most destructive there? Wind damage or flooding?

Btw... worth the mention again...from Washington Post

It is still absolutely worth mentioning that these model solutions are not official forecasts. No one (or no model) can tell us exactly where Irma will go.
However, we can start to look at the trends from each model and ensemble run to get a better idea of how the situation might play out early next week. It is safe to say that the situation has become slightly more concerning for East Coast residents

At this point both, normally its just the rain this far inland. But with a GFS or euro track then windspeed is a problem with torn off roofs and tons of downed trees. Im going out today supply shopping for sure, 2 days from now if this keeps its track then **** will hit the fan and gl finding anything.

If you saw the euro track you would need to get ready also, this landfalls in the carolinas then rides the easy coast.

I wish i didnt vote now, it wont be till another 2-4 days before we can say with some certainty it will hit the US. Then another 5-6 days before we figure out who gets hit. Then not untill the last 12-24 hours can we put our finger on where the eye comes ashore...

I went for North Carolina, but I would guess anywhere between Florida and North Carolina is possible.

My guess is that will have a very close brush with Florida but remain off shore and then recurve into New Jersey slightly south of where Sandy made landfall.

Stay out to sea and then hit Nova Scotia or Newfoundland as a weakened tropical storm.
