The possibility for severe storms capable of producing isolated damaging wind gusts and large hail will exist for today and Wednesday across a large portion of the forecast area. The greatest risk for storm activity will be later in the afternoon to evening hours today.
Just having enough supplies to make it through a hurricane isn’t enough. You need plenty to make it through what could be a long recovery period too. Prepare for AT LEAST three days, but @FLSERT officials recommend seven days is best. #HurricanePrep #HurricaneStrong
5/11/21 3:50 PM EDT Showers to our east. More organized storms developing to our west are expected to impact the Tri-State area later this evening. A few of these western storms could become strong to severe, with damaging winds as the primary threat. #ALwx #FLwx #GAwx
5/12/21 - The potential for isolated severe storms exists for the 3rd straight day as a slow-moving cold front sags into our area. The main threats are damaging wind gusts, small hail, pockets of heavy rain, and lightning. Localized flash flooding may occur. ⛈️ #FLwx #GAwx #ALwx
When tropical systems near, we're all in this together! Check on your neighbors, and remember that other folks around you are also preparing for the storm. #HurricaneStrong #HurricaneSeason2021 #HurricanePreparednessWeek #HurricanePrep
5/14/21 10:45pm ET - Cloud-free skies have allowed us to capture a great view of the waxing crescent moon tonight looking west from the office. We wish there was less lighting but this image will have to make due. Feel free to share your pics here to compare! 🌙📸
8am Intermediate Advisory from upgrades into a cate #HurricaneMichaelory 2 hurricane. Keep in mind, wind (which the categories are based on) will NOT be the only impacts with this storm. Expect life-threatening storm surge along much of the Gulf Coast, and more.
Did you see it? A meteor was caught on GOES Lightning Mapper (GLM) around 3:52Z or 11:52 PM ET!
If you live along the coast and were told to evacuate...this is YOUR LAST CHANCE. Hurricane Michael is an unprecedented event and cannot be compared to any of our previous events. Do not risk your life, leave NOW if you were told to do so.
We want to highlight something we saw on our survey of tornado damage this morn. Notice these pieces of debris, and the relative ease it had in piercing these walls/roof. One reason of many why we urge folks to find the most interior room of your house on the lowest floor! #GAwx
5AM EDT update: This is as SERIOUS as it gets gets. Major #HurricaneMichael has continued to intensify over the Gulf of Mexico. We want everyone to know this is an EXTREMELY dangerous storm and unfortunately the time for preparation is ending!
Update - Everyone @NWSTallahassee is okay! 😊 The tornado 🌪 occurred at the TLH airport. Our office is northeast of the airport on the campus of FSU and was not affected. Technicians are at the radar and report no damage. The radar 📡 remains down due to a communications issue.
An extreme wind warning is currently in effect for locations between Laguna Beach and Eastpoint until 2:15PM ET. Wind gusts in excess of 130 mph are expected. Shelter in place IMMEDIATELY! #HurricaneMichael
For those of you returning to your homes after #HurricaneMichael please check out the attached graphic with some tips to keep in mind.
#Michael is steadily moving towards the coast, landfall is expected later this morning to early this afternoon. Conditions will deteriorate quickly, so stay put and find your safest location possible! #HurricaneMichael
