Thank you Bert!Seneca,
I wish you the best through this storm, but I wouldn't worry too much, the winds are in the 60's with some gust up to 70. It is moving pretty fast and that compiled that it will be hitting land mass will keep it from intensifying. In fact, it should start to lose steam. Structures should be fine, maybe some down trees. If you are in a low area, maybe some flooding. I find the worst thing about hurricanes, is the period of time after it. That is the loss of electrical power, cable tv, phone lines and lets not forget the dsl line. That is why I invested in a generator that can power the whole house for at least a week after the storm. No more living out of ice coolers and sleeping in a hot and muggy house.
Again, I only hope you and the rest of Texas the best.
Well we definately need the rain that's for sure.I hope the storm will bring us some much needed rain and a drop in temps. We have too many dying from the heat! :Curved:
During vacation...ohhhh goodness that would be scarey.I had one seeing forming right before my nose during my vacation.Thank God it did not complete and fell apart.Last night we had a serious twister in the north of our country.It ruined a few farms.Moved cars several feet,and ripped trees of.Damage in the millions.No one got hurt.
In France they had a simmilar one.3 people got killed.
The wind is always my concern.We have just had three storms blow through New Zealand. Lots of flooding, lost roofs, downed trees and 11 dead over the past 3 weeks so you have reason to be concerned.
Thank you Greg - :wink:my thoughts are with you guys
hang in there
I will - thanks.Seneca,
Hang on and hope for the best....
Thanks Mike.Seneca, be safe my thoughts are with you folks down in Texas. Mike
I remember this very clearly...it was only a tropical storm....read below....Hey guys, it's just a tropical storm. We need the rain. :wink: :biggrin:
OMGosh...how horrible. Those straight-line winds are bad!At least you get a warning with a hurricane; last night unbelievable storms formed about thirty miles west of Chi-town and WHAM! Roared through here with the actual *storm* moving at 60 MPH, and straight-line winds hitting 90 MPH in places! Half an hour was the most warning that most people had.
Nevertheless, good luck!
