Up to 2 feet of rain, 50K lightning strikes per hour overnight. Tornado warnings. Schools closed, NAS closed, ECAT out of service… It’s headed your way, Jacksonville, so take your kayak to work with you.
Mr. Floppy wasn’t happy, is hiding under the bed or the desk, but we’re ok and the house is secure. Emergency Operations for the County has been activated. Duffy’s boss and another employee went down last night and cut off the power at the facility, then had to swim out, the water was at least 2 feet deep. They spent most of the night in a Waffle House. Big Boss was interviewed by the tv station, but I haven’t seen it yet. There is one bus out right now, picking up people to take them to shelters. Quite a few roads washed out. Worst of it SEEMS to be over…but the closed roads, standing water, and washed out areas make travel in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties dangerous.
I’ll see if I can find a picture…
Ain’t no fun. Duffy’s just left for work, hope he can make it there safely…read more about it at the Pensacola News Journal.
Take heed, Jacksonville – it’s heading your way…so take your kayak to work! Be safe, and thanks for stopping by!
