Late afternoon storm over the Sulphur Springs Valley near Willcox, Cochise County, Arizona.
Hey if anyone who follows me is in Florida. Stay safe, if you couldn't evacuate pls consider going to a local shelter, if you need to go to a shelter bring your medications.
The emergency management department of Tampa has issued the following (paraphrased) statement:
"Be sure where you are going to be by 2pm (landfall) and be there before then."
This monster storm is a category five just about (2mph short of the classification) and they've increased the highest impact of the storm surge to be up to 18 feet with up to 24 inches of rain expected.
Stay out of flood water.
Turn around, don't drown.
Flooding kills more people in a year than tornadoes do in several.
Flood water is disgusting and has dangerous chemicals, bacteria, and possibly snakes and gators in them. Don't play in them after the storm, even a small cut can get infected.
Don't trap yourself in an attic if the water raises, you will possibly get stuck and be unable to escape. If the water starts to rise DO NOT TRAP YOURSELF.
Keep aware for tornado warnings. The entire south side of state is under a tornado watch until 5pm today, but may be extended.
If you have a Twitter, consider following the SPC, NWS hurricane, and your local NWS Twitter with notifications turned on.
