    Could be some bad flooding tonight/tomorrow

    this thing is hitting in the worst possible spot for Tampa

    Landfall just north of Tampa bay is the worst possible landfall location

    it results in onshore winds forcing water up into the bay. It’s also coinciding with high tide late tonight. So it’s going to flood. Question is how much?

    landfall south of the bay winds force water out of the bay

    12+ hours of a bad thunderstorm and anytime you go more than 30 minutes without power it's miserable.

    They're putting down a new driveway in my front yard currently with pavers all over the place. I pipe broke in my house last week and my kitchen/living room has almost no drywall on the ceiling. My kitchen sink has some massive blockage in it. Hurricane coming through.

    Tampa lucked out again. If this was a cat 2+ we’d be in for a rough night. Think the normal flood areas will get it, hopefully nothing too major

    wind hasn’t been crazy but the flooding seems to be worse than expected so far. Lots of flooding

    Strong gusts in the Heights but no flooding on my immediate block given our elevation. I’m tempted to walk down to the river. The park was underwater a few hours ago.

    If a hurricane took this route in August the city functionally wouldn't exist, it's scary to think about.
