    Richmond, VA got seriously flooded yesterday from one of the storms travelling up the coast. Maybe it was Gaston.

    Good luck Floridians!

    Gaston it was. Just finished cleaning up about a few inches water from a friend's apartment. Carpet soaked, had to be pulled up and al the padding had to be replaced.

    10 to 14 inches of water in a few hours. Cars found at the bottom of the river. Hell, there was a tractor trailer being swept away. Water pushed cars into a building and knocked it down.

    Yup, it was bad.

    pissedoff Hurricane.

    Anyways, that is definately going to fuck some shit up, when Opal hit us as a category 3, it was a disaster in NW Florida--this one looks like if it stays the same strength, we got another Andrew here.

    Hey man, seriously, if this thing looks like it will be a direct hit, get out of Florida! This is the very last place you should be during 140+ MPH winds, and the likleyhood of you not surviving a cat 4 or 5 is pretty good. Post-Andrew building codes are for 114 MPH wind, this strength wind will put exponentially more force on buildings, and there won't be many left after 140 mph :unsure:

    Sitting down here in Hollywood, FL, and it looks like its coming! It was supposed to take a more northernly track by this morning, but it hasent moved too much yet. They extended the red zone down south more, to the Broward/Dade County line. Hopefully it will turn, but it dosent look good as of yet!

    if my power isn't out I'll post period reviews of the winds and maybe some pictures of me outside, if it's safe.

    Looks like I am going to be eating beans, shiting with no running water, and hiding in my bathroom with my cat for the weekend.

    don't you just love florida, and hurricanes...

    Hey guys, posting here for potentially the last time.......


    wish me luck, this fucker is headed almost straight for me, may I be in all of your prays (hopefully). This fucker is going to hit me very close.

    I am going into a safe shelter on friday with my family and my cat, and hopefully I will post on friday. I hate to sound sceptical but you never know.

    to all of my hondaswap peeps, keep it real, and wish me luck!!!!
