Aah Jim, Coastal Storm Expert in Disaster Recovery, Wednesday 7am update on Hurricane Dorian

Aah Jim is a local coastal storm expert in disaster recovery who researches the hurricanes and gives no nonsense reporting about them in plain language. Read his prior updates for important info about how hurricanes work, i.e. “It doesn’t matter what the top windspeed of a storm is if it stays out in the Atlantic. it does not matter what the wind speed of the narrow eastern eyewall of Dorian is doing if that eyewall is not expected to come close to Florida. No matter how big a hurricane is, once it drives completely up on land it dramatically weakens, it needs to hit a warm open body of water again before it can pose a major threat. “

Jim writes:  Good Morning Friends and Neighbors, this is the Dont Panic Weather Service giving you the 7am EDT update for Wed: If you are out there still waiting for the other shoe to drop, know this, the worst of the storm is past for all but Daytona and Jacksonville. When the winds are out of the West in your area the storm is off shore with its most powerful winds already past you. When the winds are out of the SW the storm is already North of you. Jacksonville and our neighbors on the st Johns River are the only ones I still have concerns for. The North and NW winds that did not produce much in the way of storm surge on the Ocean is backing up the flow of the St Johns River causing 2-3 ft floods above normal high water levels.

The bad news is the prevailing winds will likely keep the river high all day today and only relieve some pressure tonight and then fully relieve the pressure tomorrow morning and afternoon. Any rainfall will add to the woes. My heart goes out to you and to the devastated people in the Bahamas. If your heart is full of gladness for having dodged a potential bullet consider contributing to relief efforts with a reputable charity in the Bahamas. I will not recommend any, I want it to be clear I am not affiliated with any profit or charity organization, I do this out of love and concern for my friends and neighbors. But I must admit the outpouring of appreciation and love I have gotten in this event has been a most generous compensation for my efforts! May we all be as well paid in Love!

Except for the St Johns River, our neighbors in Florida are out of harms way so this may be my last update for this event, there are other disasters that need my attention. None of the other weather systems in the gulf or the Atlantic pose much of a threat to us at this point. However rest assured that the next time powerful forces threaten your family and your home, and all around you are panicking, including your major sources of information, the Don’t Panic Weather Service will be there for you, with all of the facts and none of the spin. Enjoy the day my friends, hug your dear ones and tell them how much they are loved and no matter what the world throws at you, Don’t Panic! We will get through it together!
