You are not kidding about it moving water. San Luis Pass where I like to fish is already getting extra high tidal movements. Everyone in the path of this storm hoping you stay safe and please give updates after it passes.

We have had some much needed rain, about 2-1/2 inches today. Storm is already in Geogia and some of the strongest winds we have seen just now. Gusts to 30-35 maybe. Nothing too bad and we still have power.

Now the folks on the river are getting hit by the storm surge which looks like 6 ft - 8 ft or so along with a 4 ft high tide. River Road is under water out to the West near the boat ramp. All in all not bad at all. Steinhatchee lucked out again.

Regards
Tom in Steinhatchee

Hi Tom
Do you know if the tide was high enough to come inside the store at Sea Hag Marina ?

That is some good news. Good to hear you guys are ok Tom.

Still wishing and hoping the best for the rest in the path of this beast.

On the coast of Georgia we have had heavy rain and some wind, but nothing too serious. We are experiencing some higher than normal tides as well. The causeway to St. Simons Island was closed tonight as a precaution. Tornado watches are in effect. Tonight and tomorrow should be windy as well, but we are not expected really to get the type of wind we got last year during Irma and Mathew.

My thoughts are with those in the Panhandle that bore the brunt of the storm.

My thoughts and prayers for the people that Michael hammered. We are getting a ton of rain this morning.
They cancelled school because of tornado warnings in the area.
