Sally!

Anyone and their boat in the path?

What's the plan?

Looks like a Cat 2 when it gets there at daylight Tuesday.

Right now looking like to the east of NO and over Lake P.

Biloxi, Mobile, Pensacola now the target area. Up to 30" of rain so far wider spread of flooding.

Sorry, but I can't see that working out well at all if it's in the target area. Where is it? I sure hope they're all fortunate.

Looks like the coordinated work of a group of people who have been doing that for a long long time. I'd be interested to know how far inland that is, looks very protected, wind-wise at least.

Wind will not be their problem but rain and flooding sure may be. All depends on how things end up. There have been forecasts of up to 30" of rain.

Two casinos have broken loose too. There's just no excuse for that. The winds are not strong enough for it to happen. Then the barge into the Pensacola Bay Bridge. Seems like a lot of sloppiness and lack of securing barges.

So far she's just wind in the tops of the trees. We are about forty miles inland from Dauphin Island and eight miles from the MS line.


Earlier, while crossing the Gulf, she wasn't a very tall storm. Wind at high altitudes looked like she wasn't there at all.

Looks like Pensacola got the worst of it. Eye landed in Gulf Shores.

Our power is out. Maybe precautionary. Sightseers get out after sunup and get electrocuted by downed power lines. Then they want to sue.

Still mostly wind here. It's gusty and lower to the ground now. We are on the west side, got lucky.

I've had a map out so I could find various locations people were referring to. I see a Schoolhouse Branch 20 miles or so NW of Mobile.

It appears there are more than a couple Schoolhouse Branch/ Schoolhouse Rivers in and out of Florida.


Just like looking up "Turtle Cay" or Round Island.

Post on FB says all boats remaining at Dauphin Island Marina have sunk. (90 wet slips there). Not confirmed.

I don't know the current rain amounts but when I went to bed last night, Pensacola already had 16" of rain and the storm hadn't arrived yet. 20-30" anticipated.

My brother in Orange Beach suffered some superficial damage to his GB42 (including a cracked center-opening windshield) which is down in a really good hole behind his canal-front house. He has no power/internet.

True, but I went with the clues that he said he was "lucky on the west side," and also I was looking for land/town names not waterways.

Guess we'll find out for sure later.
