Y'all stay safe. All of my family in Cocoa, Viera, and Merrit Island are bunkering down. Depending on how everything goes I may PM you guys to do a drive by if I lose contact with them. Mainly my sister and mom's house in Cocoa.

Everyone here is in a panic even after we've been downgraded to 30 mile an hour winds and rain.

Best of luck to anyone down in Florida. Stay safe!

I'm up in Gainesville, my truck is on a lift in the dodge dealership where my buddy works, still trying to find a rear diff housing. Fortunately he was cool enough to loan me his 97 GT mustang convertable but that isn't much of a deep water driver. lol Best of luck to the rest of you florida guys that are near the coast.

Flagler Beach here. We're under "mandatory" evacuation as of this morning and curfew at 7pm tonight. Since Irma now tracking west, the expected forecast winds for this area are a max of about 45 knots and gusts to about 60. So, we're sliding out shutters closed tonight and will just hunker down in place. Our house is a block from A1A and 22 feet above sea level, so we should be fine.

Everyone out there affected, be careful, stay safe and remember the old rule of thumb: Hide from the wind, but run from the water.

Get those trucks on high jacks/bricks just in case water rises several feet.

Stay safe everyone in Florida.

Everybody make it through OK? I sure hope so, it was pretty nasty up here. We just got power back this morning after losing it late Sunday night. No damage to life or property, very thankful for that. Lots a trees down in my area and all around NE FL.

Finally got power, cable and internet back within minutes of each other. That being said, about 1/3 of our island is still under water, though it is receding. At least 1/2 the homes took some damage. Many will be total losses that got flooded along the intracoastal and low-lying parts of the island.

My home is on the highest part of Flagler Beach, and I rode out Irma here. I figured the house withstood Matthew with no issues, so I closed my shutters and hunkered down for Irma. It was a sleepless night, all the noise and banging. I could hear my neighbors back porch flying apart. But, thankfully I took no damage to the house or my detached garage and zero flooding. My only casualties were a chain-link fence and the wind/sand sandblasted the paint off the trim of my house.

All in all, glad we made it, but a lot of people have no homes to live in, here and throughout Florida, to say nothing of other areas Irma hit before it came to the U.S.

On a lighter note, while we still had no power and the heat was oppressive, the fire department went around in a service truck and handed out free ice cream sandwiches and freeze pops to people working outside cleaning up debris. ::smile::

Kudos to Flagler Beach police, fire and Flagler County sheriff as well as FPL for getting the lights on so quickly (5 days).
