That's because there is no Cat 6 listing.

Just another reason fakebook is next to worthless ( it's not completely worthless, it can always serve as a bad example )

Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale

Quote:
he Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale is a 1 to 5 rating based on a hurricane's sustained wind speed. This scale estimates potential property damage. Hurricanes reaching Category 3 and higher are considered major hurricanes because of their potential for significant loss of life and damage. Category 1 and 2 storms are still dangerous, however, and require preventative measures. In the western North Pacific, the term "super typhoon" is used for tropical cyclones with sustained winds exceeding 150 mph.

Category Sustained Winds Types of Damage Due to Hurricane Winds
1 74-95 mph
64-82 kt
119-153 km/h Very dangerous winds will produce some damage: Well-constructed frame homes could have damage to roof, shingles, vinyl siding and gutters. Large branches of trees will snap and shallowly rooted trees may be toppled. Extensive damage to power lines and poles likely will result in power outages that could last a few to several days.
2 96-110 mph
83-95 kt
154-177 km/h Extremely dangerous winds will cause extensive damage: Well-constructed frame homes could sustain major roof and siding damage. Many shallowly rooted trees will be snapped or uprooted and block numerous roads. Near-total power loss is expected with outages that could last from several days to weeks.
3
(major) 111-129 mph
96-112 kt
178-208 km/h Devastating damage will occur: Well-built framed homes may incur major damage or removal of roof decking and gable ends. Many trees will be snapped or uprooted, blocking numerous roads. Electricity and water will be unavailable for several days to weeks after the storm passes.
4
(major) 130-156 mph
113-136 kt
209-251 km/h Catastrophic damage will occur: Well-built framed homes can sustain severe damage with loss of most of the roof structure and/or some exterior walls. Most trees will be snapped or uprooted and power poles downed. Fallen trees and power poles will isolate residential areas. Power outages will last weeks to possibly months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months.
5
(major) 157 mph or higher
137 kt or higher
252 km/h or higher Catastrophic damage will occur: A high percentage of framed homes will be destroyed, with total roof failure and wall collapse. Fallen trees and power poles will isolate residential areas. Power outages will last for weeks to possibly months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months.

I live on a lake in Northeast Florida, about 70 miles in from the shore. The water is in my yard now. It is about 5 to 2 1/2 feet above normal. I am really concerned about that. We have had depressions go over and fill my yard but it has not come close to the house.

Just a tropical depression is scary as hell we are on the southwest shore and there are no trees blocking the wind over this 700 acre lake. Wind comes screaming across.

Very nervous right now.

I went out the other day and picked up a few extra supplies. I will go get some more stuff today and tomorrow. We have food now for about 1 week so I'll get 1-2 more weeks of non perishable food. I'll also get the big camping cooler out and ready for ice later in the week.

If the track keeps moving closer to FL ( and more estimates are showing it will hit us) I will get the shutters out and start setting up Thursday or Friday.

I have 15 gallons of gas for the generator plus the 3 gallons in it now.

We are inland of I95 in St Lucie county right where I95 goes the furthest west. My big concern is the drainage for the neighborhood. We are near the high point in the county so most of the water should drain. But shit happens.


I have two water bobs so we will have 200 Gallons of drinking water available.

We arrived on Amelia Island yesterday. Drove the Vette down from STL. The plan was to fly home Wed and leave the vet at the house (in our garage) until I come down for good in four weeks. Now looking at options. Thinking about driving it to Jax airport and parking in the garage there on an upper floor. Since we will be flying out Wed AM there should still be room there. I really don't want to drive it another 1100 miles home only to turn around and do that again in 4 weeks. Any other suggestions?

Sounds like a very good idea to me. Get the car to high ground.

I'd also put as much up as high as possible in the house just in case.

We have no furniture in the house except for two folding lawn chairs we brought down in the car. We are actually sleeping in a hotel. This trip was just to check on status after tenants moved out and to meet with some contractors who are supposed to do some work on the house between now and when we move.

Are you located on high ground in Fernandina? You could go into callahan for a storage unit.

the euro model is all over the map. Our local station is now saying south Florida looks possible. Unless it goes up the atlantic coast, that would be good for me but bad for the south. Hope the best for all.

Yes. Last year when we bought the house we connected with a local handyman who has done a number of projects around the house for us. He has a key to the house and has been working on some projects since the tenants moved out on the 31st. I talked to him this AM and if it looks like like its needed he will put the shutters up. He is a good guy but I know he has a not so good driving record so I prefer not to leave the Vette in his care
