  1. Just got an alert to my phone to seek shelter. I live in Port St. Lucie Fl. Skh is blue and I could not even fly s kite if I tried. My dog who knows if it is raininv in Pohokee over one hundred miles away is laying on the patio sunbathing. She senses storms long before they arrive, terrified of thunder and lightning. She knows and is a better indicator of weather locally than ANY weather service. People here are frantic because of the hype from the media. I have slept about ten hours in the last three nights as I have been installing peoples hurricane shutters well into the late evenings and early mornings. I will believe this human skull killer to hit florida when I see it. This is hype. If I turn out to be wrong, I will admit it, will you?

    • I’M IN ST. PETE FLORIDA AND I FEEL THE HYPE FROM OUR LOCAL STATIONS OFTEN SHOWING WORSE GRAPHICS THAN THOSE ON WEATHER UNDERGROUND. BEST OF LUCK. WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO GET MUCH, BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.
