Charley was predicted to hit Tampa but veered inland south near Punta Gorda and came up the middle of the state causing much damage. We had brush piles power line high for months. It took a long time to clean up it was so bad. In some places 4 years later I still see a blue roof once in while.

The projected path should give an idea of the possible path, if you are near the cone be prepared. I will say that taking a proactive approach can prevent many headaches later.

It looks like by the last report I'm seeing that Ike is going to cost the Castro brothers a whole lot more... Just maybe Miami will not even have to close a school. That 5 day cone is looking not the best for LA and the coasts each side of there at the moment though either.

We are keeping an eye on this one, the Florida Panhandle can be affected

Do you suppose that Ike is looking for brother Ivan? I'm watching Ike and I live in the middle central part of the state. I haven't forgot Charley for a minute.

Not really, at least that is what my neighbor tells me and they have lived here for twenty years. I have been here about a year and was scared about Fay and went out and bought all this stuff and nothing happened! But, you never know!
