    All I can find is old reports about the water levels rising, or the same old hurricane videos. Jim Cantore is there. That's all I saw.

    My brother and I were discussing the effect this hurricane would have on the sinkholes.
    I guess that answers that...

    Wondering about Key West, (heard Snappers on Key Largo is no more), and how are homes fairing near the beach, in Naples, (a couple blocks from gulf), any word on Naple's Pier, and how are Tampa Hospitals holding up. Thanks for any input. I appreciate it. Stay safe Fla. Keeping ya'll close in thought.

    Awwww! Adorable! :) It says "Beaumont, Texas" on the video, though, so that would've been hurricane Harvey, not Irma.

    EDIT: I was commenting on the Dog Rescue video... I don't know how the tree one ended up attached here?

    You're right - "Snappers" is completely demolished.

    I'd think part of it is because so many in FL are w/o power and a lot of the damage is unknown (and still happening) at this point. My sister and family lost their power around 6pm in Deltona (Volusia Co). With the winds I'm sure they're staying inside and hopefully sleeping. Other than on here I'm getting very little info about what's going on down there (again no tv). Just started getting the first outer bands here in WNC - gentle but lived in FL so long that it's easy to recognize the smell, sound and feel... Dreading what daylight will show and hoping the damage isn't as bad as I'm afraid it will be... Stay safe everyone.

    There are hours of gusts still to come if you look at how big the 3 in the afternoon to 9 in the evening is although dry there is a lot of circular motion that still has to come up from below Orlando

    in a way its like a small earthquake rumbling sound that starts first lasts for about 5 seconds then you hear the wind swish and feel like vibration .

    Duration on the wind swoosh varies but when they go on for a long peroid of time they build up - like a crescendo

    new videos emerging -- its bad , very Charlie like -- tons of foilage all over the place

    after Charlie they had to set up special giant wood chipper centers --over all the whole mess chipper stuff took half a year to get through it all

    and that was horrid for the power truck parades cause the streets had to get the stuff off the actual road first .

    there were piles of trees that was like 4-5 feet high on the sides of roads all over neighborhood block after block after block
