    Hurricane Dennis

    Hurricane Dennis is now up to sustained winds of 150 mph.

    Landfall expected Sunday, most likely in the western Florida panhandle.

    Winds are now at 150 MPH with wind gusts up to 185 MPH. This is a killer storm. Here is the latest projection map:

    I thought any storm that big had to carry a female name?

    Re: Hurricane Dennis

    My daughter is scheduled to return from a missions trip to Panama. She's currently scheduled to fly into Miami on Sunday with a connection to Cincinnati that evening.

    Dennis is worrying me that her flights will be all messed up.

    Before when a Hurricance would hit somewhere, I'd be pretty ambivilant. Paid a bit more attention when I lived in Texas, but not too much.

    Now that I have concerns and worries, I've got a much keener sense of anxiety in relation to this hurricane. I can't even fathom how I'd feel if I lived in the path of it.

    For all our members and readers in FL... My thoughts are with you.

    Hope it doesn't hit New Orleans head on. That would be a worst case scenario.

    Interesting to note that the projected path has it over Cincinnati Wednesday. What type of winds and rain will accompany it that far north?

    A squadron of F-15C out of Eglin were at Wright-Patterson flying around all day today.

    If you are in the Dayton area, you get a free preview of the airshow a week early.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Not much by then. To my knowledge hurricanes and tropical storms lose a significant amount of force by the time they get that far inland.

    Re: Hurricane Dennis

    Depends on the forward speed and intensity of the hurricane.

    I lived in just outside of Charlotte, NC when Hugo came through. When it made landfall in Charleston, SC it had top sustained winds of 128MPH (some new estimates are indicating that wind speeds are not being measured properly and Hugo was stronger than 128). When it hit Charlotte, which is over 200 miles away, Hugo was still classified as a hurricane. Charlotte was devistated, btw.

    A few years later, I lived in Cary, NC which is just south of Raleigh. Hurricane Fran made landfall at Wilmington and was still a hurricane when it passed over Cary more than 130 miles later. They were burning debris at several different dump sites for over a year in the Raleigh area after that.

    Neither of the two hurricanes I encountered were nearly as intense as Dennis is at this moment. Dennis is likely to undergo some fluctuation before landfall, but will probably be a major hurricane at that point.

    The comforting news is that Cincinnati is considerably further away from possible landfall positions than the cities I lived in. Dennis is not moving fast enough to maintain his intensity for a long period of time once he makes landfall.

    However, anyone living within 200 miles of the coast should not take landfalling hurricanes lightly. You'll be unpleasantly surprised.

    It will produce plenty of rain, something like 4-5 inches at least. Not too much wind by the time it get all the way up there.

    Re: Hurricane Dennis

    Thanks GAC - the eye is, as of right now, supposed to hit about 85-100 miles away from me (Pensacola/Alabama border) so that should mean strong winds and lots of rain, but thats it.

    However, if it shifts just a smidge eastward, well, I am gonna be evacuated. Which sucks, cause I don't feel like fighting the traffic. But we shall see I guess.
