    This thing is turning into a monster.

    If any inmates need some help after the storm passes post up here. I’ve made a lot of friends along the panhandle and one thing I’ve learned is they are always ready to lend a hand. Be safe you FF’s.

    This could potentially be your “Andrew” so please stay safe specially after the storm, as many life power lines will be on the ground as well as other crap.

    @Ogre_fl looks like it’s currently blowing at Cat2/3 level winds at your place. Holler if you need anything

    We use to ride down to Mexico Beach before poverty riders intl the few years I was there. Sadly, it looks like not much will be left of that area. I hope the best for everyone, and likely will be help there to help afterwards.

    I love Mex Beach, and hope it’s still there after this is over.
    Yessir and the worst is still yet to come. I’ve got a Bad Feeling about this. The Panhandle hasn’t seen anything like it in recorded history. Y’all stay safe!

    Wow. My family has a house on St. George Island. Built in the 50's on the ground. It has survived this long. Worried now that we'll be shoveling sand out of it in a week or two. (again...)

    Hope everyone makes it through ok, storm looks nasty.

    Mexico Beach is getting the eastern edge of the eye wall. Couldn't be much worse.

    Tyndall had gust of 132. All buoys and reporting stations along coast and in St Marks went dark about 90 min ago. Last tide reporting in Apalichicola showed 8 ft above normal.

    Hope everyone hangs tight. Wind constantly sounds like I’m on a flight line
    Interwebs is out, and cell is sketchy.
