Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes for our safety. I am just south of Sarasota and, like my fellow Floridians, have prepped for the worst case scenario.

Below is the thread that we used to check in after Hurricane Matthew last year. I know it is not all of our Castle players from Florida, but it is serving me as a reminder of who to look for this time around. I hope it is useful to you all and that another Florida Folks call will be made.

Thanks again for such great friends. And I am adding my own prayers for everyone's safety in this horrible storm

To add insult to injury looks like another hurricane Jose is making a similar track as Irma. Heading over the islands already devastated by Irma.

The preliminary path was that Jose will take a turn and head out to sea (it still might). But it's tracking on the heels of Irma. In case it continues to follower her, my dear Florida friends, be prepared for a one two punch.

I haven't seen a third one on the news in that line. Just Irma (category 5 right now) and behind her is Jose (currently category 3).

If you're thinking of Katia(category 1). She's in the Gulf of Mexico and will be going southwest and impacting eastern Mexico near Tampico.

Looks like Irma is camped on Cuba this morning. I don't know if that will be enough to take some of the power out of the storm, not being over open, warm water, but wow, poor Cuba sure is taking a beating.

Have family in St. Thomas, also in Jupiter, FL. Praying for their safety. I think our Jacksonville family will not be as hard hit. Beautiful place to visit but I think I'll stay in PA. Be safe, Floridians and heed the evacuation warnings.

I am praying for everyone caught in this terrible storm and can only repeat what everyone else has been saying and plead for all our MC friends to keep safe. I will never complain about the weather in Scotland again.
Kindest regards to all

I found a great site with realtime world wind speed graphics. It's earth period nullschool period net.
Also NASA has a great app called EarthNow.

From both, it looks like Jose will follow right in Irma's tracks, & there's an indication of yet another storm beginning to form rotation halfway between South America & Africa.

Barbuda already has 95% of structures destroyed, & now they're in the bullseye again.
It's going to be a long, hard year for the whole Caribbean & Gulf. I feel so bad for all these beautiful paradises being destroyed.

Stay safe friends.

To much devastating news and I am in shock and awe that so many storms are heading to the States and many of my friends on here are in there direct path.
I just heard on our news (Canada) there are THREE huge storms building up behind Irma.
I can not imagine the terror of what everyone in her path and the ones following are feeling all I can do is PLEASE PLEASE be safe and your pets to.
My heart is breaking for you all and all I can do is send you my deepest prayers and holding out my arms to keep you safe .
As others have posted please keep us updated on how you are the MC family can not
be with out you.
GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU SAFE.
Randy

I have taken down my list in preparation of losing power during the hurricane. I am in Ocala, FL and it looks to be going directly over us. Hopefully by then, it should only be a Cat 2 storm. Keeping my fingers crossed. Hope everyone else in FL will be fine also. We are prepared for it, so I'm hoping all goes well.

Near Pensacola. We were told NOT to leave as there is congesting on the roads. Heard that it will not hit us. I hope not but you never know.
