Storm Michael

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

The storm is passing by  here, the center way way to the west of us that are out on the peninsula of Pinellas County Fl.

It will soon hit hard though into the panhandle and then evidently remain a severe storm-hurricane all the way up into Georgia and South Carolina. What happens from there I haven't seen  mentioned. Will it go  into the Atlantic and then away,  or up again as a large storm into New York - New England?

It is going to be absolutely devastating if it continues at 145MPH into the panhandle along with the 12 foot storm surge. The surge will swing both  east and west,  having a  lesser affect here with only a 2 to 4 foot surge of water, but just north of here my own relatives will likely have water go through their home yet again.

I am so thankful the storm is way west of here, even though we are getting storms  and have possibility of  tornadoes from the outer bands.  

I am also  in prayer for all those not so fortunate today. May all have  left the areas of danger. May the many thousands of individuals that are ready to come in and rebuild infrastructure after the storm passes be safe in their travel and heavy work to come.

The economic impact will be severe, insurance companies once again will start to bail out of florida I suppose, and cost of living here will  be going up.  Even stonger building standards will be coming, all that stuff will be affecting  us way after the storm is a distant memory.

All of which is strong reminder that all we cherish in the way  of gathered things of afluence are just a puff away from  disappearing  without even a remnant left behind.

Our security is in our Lord and savior Jesus, today as everyday is a day to share of His sacrifice made for us that we may have eternal life with Him.

 

Praise God for the sacrifice made willing by His Son that we may have security beyond that which we build of sticks stones blocks and paper money.

We have had rain. 2 days so far as a result of the coming hurricane. 

I pray that all get out who are in its path. 

I mean no disrespect when I say I just dont understand the mentality if those who chose to live in an area prone to so many disasters. I just don't get it!

Praying for all those being affected by this storm. Looks like landfall will be just east of Panama City. Here's the latest update.

12:00 PM CDT Wed Oct 10
Location: 29.9°N 85.7°W
Moving: NNE at 14 mph
Min pressure: 919 mb
Max sustained: 150 mph

Latest Satellite

The pressure of 919mb will make this the 3rd strongest hurricane ever to hit the US mainland and the strongest ever to hit the Florida panhandle. The wind speed of 150mph puts in the top four tied with several others and the strongest ever to hit the Florida Panhandle wind-wise.

Here is the update on landfall. The wind speed increased to 155 mph which puts this storm alone at the number 4 spot for winds. The damage will no doubt be catastrophic in many places especially in the eastern side of the storm. Very sad to see a hurricane this strong making landfall.

Yes, if I lived in these areas I'd be praying asking God where He wanted to direct me to. The Bible says there will be mega storms so these are going to get more powerful and more deadly. But unfortunately the world governments will inflict climate change laws & regulations instead of heeding the warnings that God is sending imo as I read the Bible.

My father taught us from childhood (the 60's) to consider carefully where we choose to live. He warned against flood plains, hurricane alleys, tornado alleys, etc. Our family ended up in a wooded area near Seattle that was high ground relative to anything around it. 

Meanwhile my wife and I moved to some acreage in Kentucky that puts us on a knob with the valley 80 feet below and a couple of our own streams coming off the plateau. I'd never consider living in hurricane territory unless in an attractive bunker type structure able to withstand at least a 20' tsunami/surge without damage. Building a house there is like building a sand castle on the lower beach during low tide. But with the houses the wave only comes every year or six, rather than every day. It WILL almost certainly be destroyed, though.  

Then again, if you build the sand castle out of concrete, and on a rock, it will be fine.

I've seen areal photos of the mississippi river flooding where there will be the home here and there that was built on built up land. Everything is flooded except these homes are on big dry "raised pads" of dirt and unharmed - though you need a boat to get to them. 

People need to think before they build.

When I was doing my 2 year research as to where to move; Bern nc was on my long list. 

I never felt settled in that decision. I actually got a nervous check in my spirit when I would refocus on it. 

Look at what happened a few weeks ago. Bern was entirely under water. As much as I dream about living near or on water again; I aint stupid Any longer. Gid gave me wisdom. LOL

The beach makes fir a dreamy vacation. That's it!

It sounds like your father was a wise man who gave his kids sound advice.

I hear ya! IMHO Its no coincidence the correlation between some disasters and what is happening in the world.Some.

God promised to not wipe us out with water. He didn't say he wouldnt use water to put the fear of God in some to get them on their knees. 

Half joking with the last thought. :24:
