Anybody keeping an eye on Hurricane Charley? It sounds like it slid past they keys causing minimal damage, but is bearing odwn on the Tampa Bay area pretty good.

He has probably evacuated!

Charley is 70 miles south-southwest of Fort Myers right now. It's supposed to make landfall 20-some miles north-northwest of there.

Winds top 145 mph as storm nears Florida

That's not helping the fact that I have family down there <_<

My parents live in Port Orange (near Daytona Beach)
Just talked to them and they are all prepared with water, flashlights, ice....the works. Mom said they are expecting 100 mile an hour winds or more. She cooked some food even made coffee because they expect the power to go out. And they know where the nearest shelter is...hopefully they won't need it

I spoke with my Grandmother who lives pretty close to Tampa. She said it's turning south towards Ft. Myers!

I have a dear friend in Tampa area, she is hiding. She's supposed to come up here next week (thursday). Here's to wishing her a safe hiding place and minimal, if no, damage to her home.

We have been watching Charlie pretty close...and holding our breath. It pretty much missed us (we are south of Naples). Talked to friends down there, very windy & the water is coming up, but they dont expect any major problems. Keeping those in the path of Charlie in our thoughts and prayers....

SOUNDS LIKE THE KEYS SURVIVED. MY INLAWS ARE IN NAPLES AND ARE OK. NO POWER, BUT ALL IS WELL

POINT OF LANDFALL WAS CAPTIVA ISLAND. I JUST HAPPENED TO BOOK A CAPTIVA VACATION THREE DAYS AGO. WE'LL SEE??????????
