Did Irma get to Fort Myers? What’s its strength right now?
I’m very worried. It’s a lot harder to accept when it’s a place you know well.
It hit Cuba yesterday. Looks like it’s right off the coast. It’s a Category 4 right now, and it looks like it’s going to go right up the west coast of Florida. It’s due to hit in Florida around tomorrow morning.
Right, it’s got to be there on Sunday. This is the worst kind of suspense.
Agreed. I have relatives around Tampa and I don’t know if they’re evacuating or not. It’s awful.
The suspense is what is so awful. Waiting for damage. Back when insurance still worked for hurricanes it was a lot less stressful.
Irma is Category 3 now, they say it might pick up strength again, who knows.
It’s not going to reach the Fort Myers area until late Sunday night and it’s going to go right over my area very early Monday morning. The concern is not so much for being in the direct part as for the storm surge. So far in my county they’ve issued mandatory evacuation orders for zones A &B. I’m in Zone C.

Good luck! Please let me know on Monday how it goes. I’m worried, even though you are in zone C.
Yeah, Shakti, you and your family take care!
On deciding to ride out the storm:
“Yeah, we’re sticking it out.
Beer’s in the ‘fridge, hotdogs are in the freezer, buns are on the counter, the grill’s in the living room.
We’re gonna PAR-R-R-R-R-TEE-E-E!!!!!!!!!”
