As of this morning, the storm has slowed down, which is not good. It has also weakened slightly, but has plenty of room to strengthen at it's slower speed. This is a large storm, which will bring 10-20 inches of rain over about two days. Take into account our above average August rainfall(at least here in the southwest portion of the state) and flooding may occur. There's also the possibility of tornadoes on all over the state, so that sucks. Now it's not predicted to hit land until late Saturday, so we are just waiting for the inevitable.

Frances is definitely bad news. Try to stay safe, you guys. It's really wet and rainy here in Birmingham, but at least there's not any strong wind.

Best of luck to you in the path....we've never experienced anything like that here, just a few tremblers and fires but never storms of that caliber.....be safe!

We're having thunderstorms in Birmingham right now, really bad ones. It's a spin-off from the hurricane. Whew! How scary!!

I hope you guys don't get it! And I hope the remnants don't come up to VA and flood us here like has been happening. I am so sick of rain and mud. My nephew was stuck in the Gaston flood in his car up to his neck! He got out but it ruined his expensive satellite radio system. I have so many awful hurricane stories, I do not want anymore! For anybody! Go away Frances!

The winds are already high here in Tampa. I am so worried for the people in South Fla right now!

I think we're getting on of our first squalls right now, not too bad yet, very breezy. The weather guy just said gusts to 24 currently. Over 10 inches of rain expected.

I'm worried for the other coast too The thing has just been moving so slow, there's probably going to be a lot of flooding

I just saw on one of the local stations a video of a surfer on the east coast jumping off a pier into these huge waves!

AMEN TO THAT!


The worst part of Frances has been the waiting. At least with Charley the storm came and went within a matter of hours. It's been about 24 hours now that we've been getting really high winds and driving rain from the feeder bands coming across the state.


to everyone just waiting and watching to see what this storm does.

My parents returned to Pompano Beach this morning about 9 am. Their apt. didn't have any damage, and they never lost their power, according to neighbors who'd stayed there.

I hope others have the same good fortune.

Our rec center is a "shelter", but basically it's just open so the Fire department can eat somewhere. I worked 2 hours Saturday night, all day yesterday, and am here again today It's just as well though, the power has been out at my house since about 1 p.m. yesterday.

A lovely Labor Day weekend
