    Hurricane Matthew. Stay safe, be prepared

    To thise already in its path, my prayers are with you. Stay safe.

    For those of playing the waiting game, please get prepared, especially water, flashlights, your meds, etc.

    Be sure to have a plan in place for whatever it is you need to do. Those winds can get very ugly.

    We prayer for the best scenerio, but prepare for the worst.

    Blessings out to all.

    Yes, please, better safe then sorry. I heard the storm surge was due to be pretty bad for the Bahamas so I assume that will be the case for the coasts, particularly if it is a slow moving storm.

      I just notice you are listed as Orlando. What are they saying for your area? I have relatives down there.

        Really will not know until tomorrow. But for sure the winds will be bad. I am in East Orlando. Our boss expects to send us home early Thursday and for us to stay home Friday. Time will tell is what we need to do. I am as prepared as I can be. My one daughter will need to stay at the hospital ER overnight a night or two. She is on the A team which menas during the storm she has to be there ready to work. She is an RN. The other daughter in Sarasota is the B team and she has to be ready to stay at the hospital after the storm is gone and be there to take care of the heavy influx of patients after the storm. I was here for Charlie and the other two. What an experience. Scarry. But everyone comes together and helps each other.

            I live in Jacksonville, NC (just above Wilmington, NC on the tracking map.) Presently I'm in Wisconsin due to leave Friday for Chicago. Steve and I thought about packing up and doing the 20+ hour drive home. But we know if the eye tracks east of us it won't be too severe. And it seems the colder it is in Chicago the further the storm tracks into the ocean. I'm sure the neighbors will contact us if things get damaged.

            Now those in Florida are most at risk. Hope things go well for them ... being prepared is most important! Hope everyone can check back after the storm passes and let us know all is well.

                Most of us are just waiting to see what happens after it clears Cuba. Storms have been known to change direction after Cuba,usually to the west. 2/3's of the state has tropical storm warnings up. Supposedly, Governor has told south east coast areas of state to evacuate. Yesterday, we had a terrible rain storm 7" in 5hrs, many streets, low areas etc badly flooded, next county north of us is worse.
                So here we sit and wait. I'm retired from Public health as a nurse. used to do shelter duty. Another agency runs the shelters now. Three members of family are law enforcement.
                Thanks for the prayers ya'all. Judy stay in Chicago even if it's cold. ga'nite Kathy

                    I am also adding my prayers that you are all safe. Those in the path, let us know, when you can, that all is well.

                      I checked the weather updates when I got up early this morning. Doesn't look so good for you down there. I had also been watching it for New Jersey. I had lived in the area that Sandy had done so much damage so I was hoping they would be spared the bad effects of Matthew. Looks like they will be dodging the Matthew bullet, at least I hope so. Please keep up posted Karen.

                        We've been watching too. We didn't have any damage during Sandy but there was much damage and flooding on the other side of the highway, we were without power for almost a week. We packed up and drove to PA, got off at first exit and stayed at a motel for a few days. It felt strange to see everyone going about their everyday lives.

                          MayinJersey, we grew up in Jersey, lots of relatives are still there. Our "go to" place was Sandy Hook growing up as kids and we lived across the river. Seeing what was done to Sandy Hook was heartbreaking. As a child I often had nightmares about the ocean devastating Sandy Hook and was very aware of how dangerous the ocean and mother nature could be. It was like having my nightmares come true. I saw pictures of the apartments I had lived in when I first got married and they were destroyed. My apartment had been maybe 25 feet from the seawall. Yikes! And of course any of the beach clubs I had gone to growing up were. devastated or gone.

                            While I love storms immensely, I would not want to be in the path of a hurricane I'm sure. I hope you all can stay safe and secure. Will be thinking of you all in the next few days and hoping you stay out of harms way. xox

                              Carlie, Sandy Hook was the beach we went to most. DS#1 was a lifeguard at some beach clubs in that area when he was in college. He was the one who made me aware of the dangers of living along The Shore. Driving along the ocean and bay towns you see such strange landscape with some empty lots where homes used to be and other homes rebuilt ten feet higher. Even stranger, the homes on either side made it through Sandy with little damage except flooding. Glad all we may get this time is rain, that we can live with.
