      Air Force Reconnaissance Plane Reported 884 Mb...the Lowest
      Minimum Pressure Ever Measured In A Hurricane In The Atlantic
      Basin...this Value Should Be Used With Caution Until Calibrated...

      A Hurricane Watch Is In Effect For The East Coast Of The Yucatan
      Peninsula From Cabo Catoche To Punta Gruesa.

      A Hurricane Watch Remains In Effect In Cuba For The Provinces Of
      Matanzas Westward Through Pinar Del Rio...and For The Isle Of
      Youth. A Hurricane Watch Means That Hurricane Conditions Are
      Possible Within The Watch Area...generally Within 36 Hours.

      A Tropical Storm Warning Remains In Effect For Honduras From The
      Honduras/nicaragua Border Westward To Cabo Camaron.

      A Tropical Storm Warning And A Hurricane Watch Remain In Effect For
      The Cayman Islands.

      All Interests In The Florida Keys And The Florida Peninsula Should
      Closely Monitor The Progress Of Extremely Dangerous Hurricane Wilma.

      For Storm Information Specific To Your Area...including Possible
      Inland Watches And Warnings...please Monitor Products Issued
      By Your Local Weather Office.

      At 5 Am Edt...0900z...the Center Of Hurricane Wilma Was Located Near
      Latitude 17.2 North...longitude 82.5 West Or About 170 Miles...
      270 Km...south-southwest Of Grand Cayman And About 365 Miles...
      590 Km...southeast Of Cozumel Mexico.

      Wilma Is Moving Toward The West-northwest Near 8 Mph...13 Km/hr. A
      Turn Toward The Northwest Is Expected During The Next 24 Hours.

      Maximum Sustained Winds Are Near 175 Mph...280 Km/hr...with Higher
      Gusts. Wilma Is A Catastrophic Category Five Hurricane On The
      Saffir-simpson Scale. Some Fluctuations In Intensity Are Expected
      During The Next 24 Hours.

      Hurricane Force Winds Extend Outward Up To 15 Miles... 30 Km...
      From The Center...and Tropical Storm Force Winds Extend Outward Up
      To 160 Miles...260 Km.

      An Air Force Plane Just Measured A Minimum Central Pressure Of 884
      Mb...26.10 Inches. This Is The Lowest Pressure Ever Recorded In A
      Hurricane In The Atlantic Basin. However...this Pressure Value
      Should Be Used With Caution Until It Is Fully Calibrated.

      Wilma Is Expected To Produce Storm Total Accumulations Of 10 To 15
      Inches...with Local Amounts Near 25 Inches In Mountainous Terrain
      Across Cuba Through Friday. Additional Rainfall Accumulations Of 5
      To 10 Inches...with Local Amounts Of 15 Inches...are Possible
      Across The Cayman Islands...swan Island...and Jamaica Through
      Thursday. Storm Total Accumulations Of 4 To 6 Inches...with
      Isolated Amounts Of 8 To 12 Inches...are Possible From Honduras
      Northward To The Yucatan Peninsula Of Mexico Through Thursday.

      Repeating The 5 Am Edt Position...17.2 N... 82.5 W. Movement
      Toward...west-northwest Near 8 Mph. Maximum Sustained Winds...175
      Mph. Minimum Central Pressure... 884 Mb.

      An Intermediate Advisory Will Be Issued By The National Hurricane
      Center At 8 Am Edt Followed By The Next Complete Advisory At 11 Am
      Edt.

        Wind Gusts are reported at 215 MPH!

        Anybody in Florida should prepare NOW...
        GET GAS....

        Stay ahead of others mass evacuating, safely carry extra fuel, food, water and emergency supplies with you if you are leaving by car, expect a major gas shortage as soon as the general public is warned.
        If you are planning a visit to Florida be prepared for anything, if possible STAY at a Disney Resort, they have proven to be the safest and most reliable place to ride out a storm.

        If possible postpone any travel to Florida or the SE United States through the weekend.
        Wilma may turn NE or fizzle out near the Yucatan.

            It's expected to weaken to a CAT 3 by the time it actually hits FL though. Still strong, but it's not expected to hit FL as a record Cat 5.

              Is it just me or does it suck even more than usual to be a Cuban this year?
              (I mean, beyond the repression, near-starvation, etc. that already goes on... they're getting pieces of every hurricane to come along!)

              Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

                It also sucks to be a Coastie this hurricane season. Also on that note why can't they hit during the week? OH well... C'est la vie, n'est pas?

                  Right now, the forecasters have NO real clue as to where/when Wilma will impact Florida and to what degree. Most forecasters in Orlando are predicting showers increasing over the weekend with winds possibly to 40-50 MPH.

                  In other words, no biggie here.

                  I'm a bit more concerned about my home in Broward County though!

                    Can someone give my parents that memo?

                      Thats all... man.. you need to think about the curve it is taking.. if it takes it wider it can be more north.. but think about it.. when it crosses the state it gets weaker anyways... and most homes in eastern FLA can hold up...

                      western however.. depends where it strikes...
