Watches & Warnings

Hurricane Statement
Issued: 5:34 AM EDT Aug. 31, 2016 – National Weather Service

This product covers northeast Florida and southeast Georgia

... A tropical storm watch is in effect for areas along and west of
Interstate 75...

New information
---------------


* current watches and warnings:
    - a tropical storm watch is in effect for
      Hamilton... Suwannee... Columbia... Gilchrist... Alachua and Marion

* storm information:
    - about 580 miles southwest of Jacksonville FL or about 580 miles
      southwest of Waycross GA
    - 24.5n 88.1w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement north or 360 degrees at 2 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Depression Nine is continuing to slowly organize across the
southern Gulf of Mexico. The system is expected to strengthen into a
tropical storm today. This system is moving very slowly to the north
and will move at a faster speed to the northeast tonight approaching
the Florida Big Bend or Panhandle coastline Thursday afternoon. This
system could potentially become a hurricane prior to making landfall
across North Florida.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant
impacts across North Florida along and west of Interstate 75. Potential
impacts include:
    - moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and
      rescues.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter
      currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially
      in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals,
      and ditches overflow.
    - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations.
      Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid
      inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as
      storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions
      become hazardous. Some Road and bridge closures.

Prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across the Suwannee Valley... Gainesville and Ocala areas.

* Wind:
prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
northeast Florida and southeast Georgia. Potential impacts include:
    - some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
      objects become dangerous projectiles. Winds and wind gusts will
      be stronger along the banks of large rivers, such as the Saint
      Johns and Brunswick rivers, on high profile bridges and near
      marshes.
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable. Winds and wind gusts will be stronger along
      the banks of large rivers, such as the Saint Johns and
      Brunswick rivers, on high profile bridges and near marshes.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

* Tornadoes:
prepare for a tornado event having possible impacts across
northeast Florida and southeast Georgia. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
      large Tree Tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
      pulled from moorings.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* evacuations: none at this time.

* Other preparedness information:
now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your emergency
supplies kit is stocked and ready.

If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind,
such as a Mobile home, an upper floor of a high rise building, or on
a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you
and your family for several days.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large Inland Lake, in a low lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.

The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather
Service in Jacksonville FL around 1200 PM EDT, or sooner if
conditions warrant.
