Hurricane Hurricane Michael

I've watched Brett Adair's video numerous times now. It is by the Grace of God that he is alive. I've seen plenty of people be ultra-critical of him, but Brett wasn't just doing it to get a shot, in my opinion. I think that the surge just came in so quick that before they had time to think after finding the road blocked, the surge had them trapped.

The Mexico Beach Police Department's Facebook page is heartbreaking... So many people are posting names and addresses of people they haven't heard from and want someone to check on. MANY of them are elderly (80s and 90s), have medical issues, and live in mobile homes. I fear the death toll will go way up in the coming days.

Bad stuff. Mexico Beach certainly looks like what a Cat 5 can do. Thank God the surge appears to have been about half of what was predicted or we'd be looking at sand, dirt, and a few pieces of wood.

Obviously I could be wrong, but I think post-analysis will make Michael a Cat 5. That's not what is important right now but this is a very impressive comparison. Michael wasn't a large Hurricane like Maria or even Irma but he was INTENSE. Doubt many of us will ever see one that intense landfall in the Gulf in our lifetimes. Heck, perhaps not in CONUS.

I think it will attain Cat 5 after reanalysis as well. That said Im sure we will see another hurricane rivaling Michael in our lifetimes. It probably wont be in the GOM but its been 26 years since our last Cat 5, so hopefully many of us will be alive in 30 years.
