Dear Lord, help all of these people to escape safely.

Irma is probably the strongest hurricane I've seen on this side of the world.

I've been watching it on and off throughout the day and the track has shifted slightly west.

It hit Cuba yesterday and has weakened some because of that. But, they're still expecting a turn north and re-strengthen some. If they keep shifting the track west, then we'll have to watch it.
Every once in a while, hurricanes will come over Arkansas. We can get gusty winds, heavy rain, and occasionally we'll get tornado warnings.

I'm glad the hurricanes weaken by the time they reach you, Tim.

It appears the storm did re-strengthen to a Category 4 and made landfall in the Florida keys. It looks like it may make another landfall sometime today.

They really were earning their paycheck!
Many without power and the electric company says it will take weeks to restore power.
Oh, a reporter interviewed a homeless man...he and other homeless were taking shelter in a parking structure!

Yeah, I watched live coverage also. The reporters on the weather channel sure took a beating from the wind and rain.
An elevated concrete parking garage would probably be the best place to go to shelter from a hurricane. But, even there you would have to careful. As you go up in elevation, the winds get higher and with the different floors (assuming their open to the outside), the wind can get constricted causing it to speed up even more.
We're suppose to get some rain tomorrow and actually think it's going to be from the hurricane!

Our weather is cloudy today and raining occasionally from the tropical system (no longer a hurricane).

We didn't get any rain or tornado warnings today from the tropical system. It felt like regular rainy\cloudy day. In fact, it was very cool today and felt like late Fall instead of late Summer\Early Fall. I don't think it hit 70 today. It probably was steady around 65. It's suppose to warm back up though into the upper 80s and lower 90s.

Hearing about some deaths in FL due to the heat at a nursing home. Also, someone's generator's fumes seeped into the home and killed the family....awful.

There's a lot of devastation in Florida (and Texas as well). The clouds and rain cleared out early this morning here. Then, the sun popped out and it heated up to about 85 degrees.
