Here's as good a thread as any to check in on Jose.

Jose's path has shifted west, and he's now within striking distance of North Carolina (Cape Hatteras and environs are at highest risk of TS-force winds at 22 percent probability, most likely Monday or Tuesday).

Ugh. Probably best not to vacation on the Atlantic coast of North America, much less the Caribbean.

I hear Acapulco's nice. Let's see how things are doing on Mexico's Pacific...

...ay dios mio.

A lot of boats inland in the Keys.

Got a nice close view of my apartment complex.  Looks like half-flooded and several trees down.  But the parking lot in front of my apartment is clear so I might have not gotten flooded!  Roof looks fine as well.

Going back down there early next week.  Watching FPL's website as they restore power to the county.

I feel a lot better!

this sort of thing is probably actually boats intentionally tied to mangroves as storm prep.

in other words, survivors and they are supposed to be there

Just found parent's house on Sugarloaf - and it is surprisingly ok looking. Granted, I'm looking from a few hundred feed directly above, but have forwarded the pics to mom and pop. Map was just updated this morning to include their house - hooray for technology!

Totally agree with your assessment. I seriously worry about those folks. A lot of them live on those boats and I don't know if they have the means or will to leave. I'm guessing not a lot of those craft have the right insurance coverage so many could be SOL. Truly wishing them the best.

Just had lunch with my old man to help him prep for his return. Apparently water is on twice a day but is not potable. He's also telling me he's not sure if the aqueduct is flowing all the way down yet. How far down are you? Also, good luck!

It's because they are aircraft flights, not satellite images

I'm in Naples.  Thanks for the good wishes.  My realtor says there's a gas shortage and long lines.  Yes, the county has a boil water order out.  I WISH I could get updates from my leasing office but they are busy texting free hotdog lunches and not answering their phones.  Sigh...

Looks a lot better than I thought it would. Seems like a few houses got some damage and boats didn't fare too well but other than that mostly just messed up landscaping.

My sister's retirement house on the right. I don't know where she got the picture, but I bet she was really excited. Glad she wasn't ready to retire

That sucks; I'm sorry.

Unfortunately, I want to use your pic there as an example.  Those houses are manufactured housing. The kind you see on the Interstate highway cut in half being delivered. They are really just basically one step up from being a doublewide.

Monroe county talks about its strict building codes, but these "houses" are common, if not absolutely prevalent on the Keys.  

The county needs to require actual strong site-built structures designed to handle the weather, the way California requires everything to stand up to earthquakes.
