Vast, you get out and do what you have to. Don't be brave (now is not the time and no surfing)
Thanks for the advice. I gave Vo the link. Didn't expect it to see it here. But, it is nice that we are being thought of elsewhere.
This could be ripper if it keeps going. Cat5 is the biggest they come. We have never had one down this far before, so it is in unchartered waters if it gets here.
We are starting to think about what we get together and where we will go if it hits. We live about 200 yards from the waters edge. So the storm surge is a real threat. It just so happens that it is also a full moon with King tides as well. So that should make it interesting. We have a double story hose with the living quarters upstairs. This will help.
A Cat5 cyclone(Tornado) has wind speeds over (+280km)150mph. Cat4 has winds between 225kph-280kph.
Will keep you informed as we get closer.
Thanks once again.
Vast
