@Jilly Marie  Your statement is a bit too general. Technically Irma's outer bands has already reached Sarasota f couple of hours ago...if not sooner. There are folks in Sarasota already without power.

 

However, Irma has just begun heading to Key West...and at 6 mph, it will take several hours for Irma's worst to get anywhere near Sarasota.

 

You can also check that by going to the weather channel dot com, and put in the zipcode or just Sarasota. Then click on the hourly forecast. You can then check the wind/rain per hour...winds (mph & direction), inches of rain, etc. When you scroll to the bottom you can click on 'next 8 hours' (3 or 4 times for about 36 hrs total)...HTH Smiley Happy


My source is the NOHA  Hurricane Irma National Hurricane Center -- Warning/Cone Interactive Map.

 

Sorry if you fine it a bit too general but that is what it states.


 

@Jilly Marie  NOAA...and yes, that is one of my sources too...

Anyway, as I said, the very outer edges/bands of Irma arrived in Sarasota hours ago Smiley Happy

Outer bands of Irma.  Eye of Irma is what needs to be watched.  The eye hasn't reached Naples yet.

I know she doesn't post here anymore, but isn't @151949 near Sarasota?

 

I hope she, her husband and their house will be ok.


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

I've thought about her too.  Being that they were selling their camper up in PA, it's possible they went back to FL by now.  I wish she would update us, but then the bullies would come out of the woodwork to say she quit and returned.  Hope you are safe @151949.
