I have talked with friends and family back home(Bermuda) and it is the typical drill...could be hit or miss. Hoping it goes to the south.

I think it shifted within the last 24 hours. The news this morning said it won't make landfall at all.

I just heard on 12 noon news, it's going to pound down on Bermuda.
Oh God, I hate those words. I pray not.
The waters have to be warm for it to escalate. I hope it's SNOWING!!!!!

Okay, I blame both my lack of geography and my local news. Their map didn't have Bermuda on it and he only talked about the contiguous US states. You're absolutely right that it's heading straight for Bermuda, but it can still miss it if it continues to hook the way it is.

Bermuda is about 900 miles east of Charleston, South
Carolina.

You would think my local guy would have mentioned Bermuda in that case since it is summer and people travel. From his description it was just out in open waters with nothing in its path.

Isabel was a Cat. 2 when she came ashore in N.C., but by the time she got to VA, she had weakened to a Cat. 1. We lived through Isabel, too, but DH used to teach Earth science and a neighbor of ours is a geology professor and both said if we're in the path of a hurricane again, even a Cat. 1, we're outa here.

I couldn't believe how many trees were knocked down by Isabel. That sort of thing is where the real danger is, I think. A lot of the newer homes in Chesapeake and Va. Beach were damaged or destroyed when trees fell on them, and if people were home, they often didn't fare well.

quicksilver ~ nothing I've found says Florida is at risk. Bermuda, sure, but not Florida. Looks like you have nothing to worry about.
