Do you bring your outdoor/lanai furniture in the house? We did for Irma but wondered afterward if it was overkill. Also, if you have them do you lower your Bahama shutters?

I stacked my resin furniture and pulled it under my covered patio so the wind wouldn’t knock it over. I’ll do the same with any potted plants, so they don’t blow into the pool.

Hope it doesn't do too much damage. I'm moving to Jax on September 19th.

The last major hurricane to hit Jacksonville happened when I was nine years old. I'm in my mid-60s now. For the time being, it appears that the brunt of the storm will hit the space coast. Not that Jacksonville will be unaffected (hurricanes are several hundred miles wide), but hopefully JAX will be spared the worst of it.

When we lived in Jax, we always put our patio furniture away. Although we lived west of the airport (pretty far away from the coast), we had hurricane shutters, which we installed for Matthew and Irma. I would not take any chances.

We usually turn it upside down and pile it all in a sheltered corner of the lanai.

Anything lighter weight on the walls or plants we bring inside.

Plants in heavy containers we shove into a corner.
