Tried to get some flying in before the storm came through...only made it up for about 30 minutes. Then the fun started :) ...enjoy







Nice hook echo right over my house!...apparently a tornado touched down about a mile away at a gas station...YIKES

As far as the rain goes it seems to have really died down. I am down here in Stuart, and we had a couple tornado warnings and TONS and TONS of rain from about 4AM to about 11...now its just a little windy with some periods of rain. It is slow indeed though! Are you from FL originally? If so, you know this is most certainly NOT the sunshine state!:p

well the little line on TV goes straight over my house. It's just windy (kinda) with intermittent rain.
The largest trailer park in the US, Barefoot Bay, got hit by a tornado. A couple injuries and some homes uninhabitable.


Luckily, it's not as strong as it could have been.


Hope everyone stays safe.

I'm in St. Pete and we haven't gotten as much as a drop of rain. Kinda crazy considering they closed the schools, I got the day off of work, and they had originally evacuated low lying areas.

I flew right over the eye yesterday over Cuba. Twice. Going down to MBJ and coming back. Wasn't that bad of a ride, just some light chop. Had a nice conversation with a hurricane hunter that was out punching holes in it. Tried to get a picture of the eye wall, but it didn't turn out. It was a pretty cool sight.

I have heard that the actual amount of turbulence within the concentrated center of a hurricane is relatively minimal. It's the surface that you want to stay away from!

Here are some shots from KCRG today.





If you look closely you can see whats left of a hangar. As the hangar departed it left a nice Cherokee in place and didn't seem to damage it at all.
