Default Matthew

Anyone in the SE of USA being impacted by Hurricane Matthew? it is looking nasty and is going to make landfall on Flordia this afternoon/evening. Latest radar reports look nasty. I hope none of the LPF folks are near there and if so be careful!

I've been keeping up on it somewhat and heard that it devastated the island nation of Haiti leaving tons of chaos and 23 people dead(as of this monring's broadcast). Best of luck to the people of Florida!

Going to have a listen and see if I can hear the Hurricane nets on the amateur radio bands. 14.325MHz and 7.268MHz IIRC for anyone interested. Hopefully it doesn't cause too much damage

Lost my power for a few hours. Winds weren't above 30mph. Got the generator going and within 30 minutes the power came back on. Sitting comfy waiting for the chaos to hit. Beach access is blocked off from Stuart to Fprt Pierce. Bullshi ted with the cops for a few but they wouldnt let me down the causeway.

Edit: literally heading right at me!

“He who believes in Him is not condemned;

And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

Default Re: Matthew

Several chaser friends of mine drove down from VA to intercept it. If I get any interesting photos back I'll post them!

Radar indicated winds even 100 nautical miles out are over 100 knots - once it comes into better range of the Melbourne radar we should get an unprecedented dual-radar look at an intense hurricane. At the time of the last significant landfall, most radars have 1/8 of the resolution we now have.

The Melbourne NWS office hurricane outlook was pretty chilling:

Code:
SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------
DANGEROUS HURRICANE MATTHEW CONTINUES TO MOVE NORTHWESTWARD OVER
THE NORTHERN BAHAMAS AND IS FORECAST TO MOVE VERY NEAR OR OVER THE
EAST CENTRAL COAST OF FLORIDA LATE TONIGHT AND INTO FRIDAY.

CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO DETERIORATE THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE
EVENING AND ESPECIALLY OVERNIGHT AS THE OUTER RAINBANDS FROM MATTHEW
CONTINUE TO INCREASE IN BOTH NUMBER AND INTENSITY. EXTREMELY
DANGEROUS, LIFE-THREATENING WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE FORECAST IN THE
NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS. THE CENTER OF HURRICANE MATTHEW CONTAINING THE
STRONGEST WIND GUSTS, STORM SURGE AND HEAVY RAIN SQUALLS WILL MOVE
VERY NEAR OR OVER PORTIONS OF THE EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA COASTLINE VERY
EARLY FRIDAY MORNING AND INTO THE AFTERNOON.

WIDESPREAD EXTENSIVE TO DEVASTATING WIND IMPACTS WILL BE FELT.
AIRBORNE DEBRIS LOFTED BY EXTREME WINDS WILL BE CAPABLE OF BREACHING
STRUCTURES, UNPROTECTED WINDOWS AND VEHICLES. EFFECTS SUCH AS THESE
HAVE NOT BEEN EXPERIENCED IN CENTRAL FLORIDA IN DECADES. LOCAL
CONDITIONS WILL LIKELY EXCEED WHAT OCCURRED DURING THE HURRICANES OF
2004. EXPECT WIDESPREAD POWER OUTAGES.

INLAND FROM THE COASTLINE, THE THREAT IS HIGH FOR SUSTAINED HURRICANE
FORCE WINDS FOR A PERIOD OF TIME FRIDAY MORNING WITH A HIGH THREAT FOR
STRONG TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS FARTHER INLAND OVER LAKE COUNTY.

WITH AN EXPECTED TRACK CLOSE TO THE COASTLINE, THE POTENTIAL FOR LIFE
THREATENING STORM SURGE FLOODING IS HIGH TO EXTREME. STORM SURGE
FLOODING OF 7 TO 11 FEET IS EXPECTED ALONG THE BARRIER ISLANDS OF
VOLUSIA AND BREVARD COUNTIES, WITH 4 TO 7 FEET OF INUNDATION EXPECTED
OVER INDIAN RIVER, MARTIN, AND SAINT LUCIE COUNTY BARRIER ISLANDS.

LARGE BREAKING WAVES ALONG BEACHES WILL PEAK BETWEEN 12 TO 18 FEET AND
PRODUCE ROUGH, POUNDING SURF RESULTING IN A SIGNIFICANT HAZARD OF
COASTAL FLOODING FROM DUNE BREACHING, ALONG WITH VERY SEVERE BEACH
SCOURING AND SAND DUNE EROSION.

SIGNIFICANT DOWNWIND PILING AND SURGING OF WATER WILL OCCUR WITHIN THE
INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY, LAGOONS, AND INLETS. THE CLOSE APPROACH OF
MATTHEW`S EYE TO THE EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA COAST MEANS PROPERTIES
FACING EAST AND WEST ALONG THE INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY WILL BE
SUSCEPTIBLE TO WIND DRIVEN PILING OF WATER. ADDITIONALLY, WIND DRIVEN
PILING OF WATER WILL BE POSSIBLE ALONG THE BANKS OF THE SAINT JOHNS
RIVER IN LAKE AND VOLUSIA COUNTIES.

HEAVY RAIN, ESPECIALLY IN SQUALLS, WILL INCREASE IN COVERAGE AND
FREQUENCY ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY. WIDESPREAD
RAINFALL TOTALS OF 5 TO 8 INCHES ARE EXPECTED WITH LOCALLY HIGHER
AMOUNTS, ESPECIALLY ALONG THE COAST. SATURATED SOILS IN MANY AREAS
FROM HEAVY SEPTEMBER AND EARLY OCTOBER RAINFALL WILL HOLD VERY LITTLE
ADDITIONAL WATER BEFORE WATER QUICKLY BEGINS TO POND, ESPECIALLY IN
LOW LYING AND URBAN AREAS. STANDING WATER WILL BE CAPABLE OF QUICKLY
RISING, ESPECIALLY IN FLOOD PRONE AREAS, AND COULD ENTER HOMES AND
BUSINESSES DURING MATTHEW`S PASSAGE.

RESIDENTS AND VISITORS TO EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED
TO MONITOR THE LATEST TRACK AND INTENSITY FORECASTS FROM THE NATIONAL
HURRICANE CENTER. ENSURE FINAL PREPARATIONS ACCORDING TO YOUR
READINESS PLANS HAVE BEEN COMPLETED.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* WIND:
PROTECT AGAINST LIFE-THREATENING WIND HAVING POSSIBLE DEVASTATING
IMPACTS ACROSS THE COASTAL COUNTIES OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.
POTENTIAL IMPACTS IN THIS AREA INCLUDE:
    - STRUCTURAL DAMAGE TO STURDY BUILDINGS, SOME WITH COMPLETE ROOF
      AND WALL FAILURES. COMPLETE DESTRUCTION OF MOBILE HOMES. DAMAGE
      GREATLY ACCENTUATED BY LARGE AIRBORNE PROJECTILES. LOCATIONS
      MAY BE UNINHABITABLE FOR WEEKS OR MONTHS.
    - NUMEROUS LARGE TREES SNAPPED OR UPROOTED ALONG WITH FENCES AND
      ROADWAY SIGNS BLOWN OVER.
    - MANY ROADS IMPASSABLE FROM LARGE DEBRIS, AND MORE WITHIN URBAN
      OR HEAVILY WOODED PLACES. MANY BRIDGES, CAUSEWAYS, AND ACCESS
      ROUTES IMPASSABLE.
    - WIDESPREAD POWER AND COMMUNICATIONS OUTAGES.

* SURGE:
PROTECT AGAINST LIFE-THREATENING SURGE HAVING POSSIBLE DEVASTATING
IMPACTS ACROSS COASTAL AREAS OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. POTENTIAL IMPACTS
IN THIS AREA INCLUDE:
    - WIDESPREAD DEEP INUNDATION, WITH STORM SURGE FLOODING GREATLY
      ACCENTUATED BY POWERFUL BATTERING WAVES. STRUCTURAL DAMAGE TO
      BUILDINGS, WITH MANY WASHING AWAY. DAMAGE GREATLY COMPOUNDED
      FROM CONSIDERABLE FLOATING DEBRIS. LOCATIONS MAY BE
      UNINHABITABLE FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD.
    - NEAR-SHORE ESCAPE ROUTES AND SECONDARY ROADS WILL BE WASHED OUT
      OR SEVERELY FLOODED. FLOOD CONTROL SYSTEMS AND BARRIERS MAY
      BECOME STRESSED.
    - EXTREME BEACH EROSION. NEW SHORELINE CUTS POSSIBLE.
    - MASSIVE DAMAGE TO MARINAS, DOCKS, BOARDWALKS, PIERS, AND OTHER
      COASTAL STRUCTURES. NUMEROUS SMALL CRAFT BROKEN AWAY FROM
      MOORINGS WITH MANY LIFTED ONSHORE AND STRANDED.

* FLOODING RAIN:
PROTECT AGAINST LIFE-THREATENING RAINFALL FLOODING HAVING POSSIBLE
EXTENSIVE IMPACTS ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. POTENTIAL
IMPACTS INCLUDE:
    - MAJOR RAINFALL FLOODING MAY PROMPT MANY EVACUATIONS AND RESCUES.
    - RIVERS AND TRIBUTARIES MAY RAPIDLY OVERFLOW THEIR BANKS IN
      MULTIPLE PLACES. SMALL STREAMS, CREEKS, CANALS, AND DITCHES MAY
      BECOME DANGEROUS RIVERS. FLOOD CONTROL SYSTEMS AND BARRIERS MAY
      BECOME STRESSED.
    - FLOOD WATERS CAN ENTER MANY STRUCTURES WITHIN MULTIPLE
      COMMUNITIES, SOME STRUCTURES BECOMING UNINHABITABLE OR WASHED
      AWAY. MANY PLACES WHERE FLOOD WATERS MAY COVER ESCAPE ROUTES.
      STREETS AND PARKING LOTS BECOME RIVERS OF MOVING WATER WITH
      UNDERPASSES SUBMERGED. DRIVING CONDITIONS BECOME DANGEROUS.
      MANY ROAD AND BRIDGE CLOSURES WITH SOME WEAKENED OR WASHED OUT.

* TORNADOES:
PROTECT AGAINST A DANGEROUS TORNADO EVENT HAVING POSSIBLE SIGNIFICANT
IMPACTS ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. POTENTIAL IMPACTS
INCLUDE:
    - THE OCCURRENCE OF ISOLATED TORNADOES CAN HINDER
      THE EXECUTION OF EMERGENCY PLANS DURING TROPICAL EVENTS.
    - SEVERAL PLACES MAY EXPERIENCE TORNADO DAMAGE WITH A FEW
      LOCATIONS SEEING CONSIDERABLE DAMAGE, POWER LOSS, AND
      COMMUNICATIONS FAILURES.
    - LOCATIONS COULD REALIZE ROOFS TORN OFF FRAME HOUSES, MOBILE
      HOMES DEMOLISHED, BOXCARS OVERTURNED, LARGE TREES SNAPPED OR
      UPROOTED, VEHICLES TUMBLED, AND SMALL BOATS TOSSED ABOUT.
      DANGEROUS PROJECTILES CAN ADD TO THE TOLL.
...crazy.

The Melbourne radar finally cooperated and I was able to run a dual-Doppler analysis on Matthew. As of 1:41 UTC, winds are ~108kts max aloft.

It's looking like the landfall solution was the correct one. Going to be a rough night in central Florida!

I saw a quick overview of it's predicted path and it looks like it will climb to the Northern coast of South Carolina and will finally start to drop off back into the Atlantic with calming winds. However, it's path looks to go into the Atlantic but then fall back down toward the Caribbean area which is not good!

Hopefully this ends soon :/

One thing is for certain, it will eventually end. The most important thing that is uncertain though, is how much damage will occur during the storm. My thoughts are with the Caribbean and Eastern USA right now.
