* locations affected
    - Apalachicola
    - Eastpoint
    - Carrabelle
    - Alligator Point

* wind
    - latest local forecast: equivalent tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 45-55 mph with gusts to 65 mph
        - window for tropical storm force winds: Thursday afternoon
          until Friday morning

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          strong tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant wind impacts. Remaining efforts to secure
          properties should now be brought to completion.
        - Dangerous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in serious injury, or in some cases loss of
          life. Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes
          hazardous.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - moderate damage to frame built homes, primarily due to the
          loss of roofing and siding materials, along with damage to
          porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. Some windows and
          garage doors may fail. Mobile homes damaged, some
          significantly if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight objects
          become projectiles.
        - Several large trees uprooted; some snapped. Some large
          roadway signs blown over.
        - A few primary and some secondary roads are impassible due
          to debris.
        - Scattered power and communication outages; some locally
          significant, lasting for days.

* Storm surge
    - latest local forecast: life-threatening storm surge possible
        - peak storm surge inundation: the potential for 2-4 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - window of concern: through Saturday morning

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          dangerous storm surge flooding of greater than 3 feet above
          ground.
        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant storm surge flooding impacts. Evacuation
          efforts should now be brought to completion. Evacuations
          must be complete before driving conditions become unsafe.
        - Life threatening inundation is possible. Failure to heed
          evacuation orders may result in serious injury or loss of
          life. Leave if evacuation orders are given for your area.
          Consider voluntary evacuation if recommended. Poor
          decisions may needlessly risk lives.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - areas of inundation from storm surge flooding, compounded
          by higher waves. Non-elevated homes and businesses along
          the coast will be subject to flooding primarily on the
          ground floor.
        - Sections of coastal highways and access roads will be
          flooded with portions washed out, isolating affected
          coastal communities.
        - Moderate beach erosion with damage to the dune line.
        - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, and piers. Small craft
          not secured prior to the storm will break away from
          moorings.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 8-12 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: high
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          major flooding where peak rainfall totals well exceed
          amounts conducive for flash flooding and rapid inundation.
          Rescues and emergency evacuations are likely.
        - To be safe, aggressively prepare for the potential of
          extensive flooding rain impacts.
        - Life threatening flooding is possible. Failure to take
          action may result in serious injury or significant loss of
          life. If flood related watches and warnings are issued,
          heed recommended actions. Poor decisions may result in
          being cut off or needlessly risk lives. If vulnerable,
          relocate to safe shelter on higher ground before flood
          waters arrive.

    - Potential impacts: extensive
        - major flooding from rainfall will prompt evacuations in
          flood prone areas. Those not heeding evacuations in these
          locations face serious injury or death.
        - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and stream will rise
          and overflow into the flood plain. Runoff will put stress
          on area holding ponds and drainage ditches, increasing the
          likelihood of widespread urban flooding.
        - Flood waters will impact structures in low lying areas, as
          well as those in the flood plain, possibly entering
          buildings. Urban flooding will result in several Road
          closures and some washouts. A few overpasses may be
          weakened by fast moving flood waters. Driving conditions
          are very dangerous.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - When implementing emergency plans, include a reasonable
          threat for isolated tornadoes.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited tornado
          impacts.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. Be ready to
          shelter quickly if a tornado approaches.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable
          impact to affected communities.
        - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor
          damage, including some damage to structures and sporadic
          power and communication outages.
        - A few structures will be damaged by tornadoes, mainly with
          loss of shingles or siding. Some Mobile homes will be
          significantly damaged, especially those unanchored. Large
          trees will be snapped or uprooted.

... Hurricane Watch remains in effect...

* locations affected
    - Apalachicola
    - Eastpoint
    - Carrabelle
    - Alligator Point

* wind
    - latest local forecast: equivalent tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 45-55 mph with gusts to 65 mph
        - window for tropical storm force winds: Thursday afternoon
          until Friday afternoon

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          strong tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant wind impacts. Remaining efforts to secure
          properties should now be brought to completion.
        - Dangerous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in serious injury, or in some cases loss of
          life. Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes
          hazardous.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - moderate damage to frame built homes, primarily due to the
          loss of roofing and siding materials, along with damage to
          porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. Some windows and
          garage doors may fail. Mobile homes damaged, some
          significantly if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight objects
          become projectiles.
        - Several large trees uprooted; some snapped. Some large
          roadway signs blown over.
        - A few primary and some secondary roads are impassible due
          to debris.
        - Scattered power and communication outages; some locally
          significant, lasting for days.

* Storm surge
    - latest local forecast: not available at this time. To be
      updated shortly.

    - Threat to life and property: not available at this time. To be
      updated shortly.

    - Potential impacts: not available at this time. To be updated
      shortly.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 8-12 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: high
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          major flooding where peak rainfall totals well exceed
          amounts conducive for flash flooding and rapid inundation.
          Rescues and emergency evacuations are likely.
        - To be safe, aggressively prepare for the potential of
          extensive flooding rain impacts.
        - Life threatening flooding is possible. Failure to take
          action may result in serious injury or significant loss of
          life. If flood related watches and warnings are issued,
          heed recommended actions. Poor decisions may result in
          being cut off or needlessly risk lives. If vulnerable,
          relocate to safe shelter on higher ground before flood
          waters arrive.

    - Potential impacts: extensive
        - major flooding from rainfall will prompt evacuations in
          flood prone areas. Those not heeding evacuations in these
          locations face serious injury or death.
        - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and stream will rise
          and overflow into the flood plain. Runoff will put stress
          on area holding ponds and drainage ditches, increasing the
          likelihood of widespread urban flooding.
        - Flood waters will impact structures in low lying areas, as
          well as those in the flood plain, possibly entering
          buildings. Urban flooding will result in several Road
          closures and some washouts. A few overpasses may be
          weakened by fast moving flood waters. Driving conditions
          are very dangerous.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - When implementing emergency plans, include a reasonable
          threat for isolated tornadoes.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited tornado
          impacts.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. Be ready to
          shelter quickly if a tornado approaches.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable
          impact to affected communities.
        - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - moderate flooding from rainfall will prompt extra
          preparation to protect property from flooding in low lying
          areas. Isolated evacuations may become necessary.
        - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and streams will
          rise to bankfull levels and possibly reach flood stage.
          Runoff will fill area holding ponds and drainage ditches,
          increasing the potential for urban flooding with additional
          rainfall.
        - Flood waters will approach structures in low lying areas.
          Urban flooding will result in isolated Road closures.
          Dangerous driving conditions.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - When implementing emergency plans, include a reasonable
          threat for isolated tornadoes.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited tornado
          impacts.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. Be ready to
          shelter quickly if a tornado approaches.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable
          impact to affected communities.
        - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor
          damage, including some damage to structures and sporadic
          power and communication outages.
        - A few structures will be damaged by tornadoes, mainly with
          loss of shingles or siding. Some Mobile homes will be
          significantly damaged, especially those unanchored. Large

    - latest local forecast: equivalent tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 40-50 mph with gusts to 60 mph
        - window for tropical storm force winds: Thursday afternoon
          until early Friday morning

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          strong tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant wind impacts. Remaining efforts to secure
          properties should now be brought to completion.
        - Dangerous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter

          life. Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes
          hazardous.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - moderate damage to frame built homes, primarily due to the
          loss of roofing and siding materials, along with damage to
          porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. Some windows and
          garage doors may fail. Mobile homes damaged, some
          significantly if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight objects
          become projectiles.
        - Several large trees uprooted; some snapped. Some large
          roadway signs blown over.
        - A few primary and some secondary roads are impassible due
          to debris.
        - Scattered power and communication outages; some locally
          significant, lasting for days.

* Storm surge
    - latest local forecast: localized storm surge possible
        - peak storm surge inundation: the potential for 1-3 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - window of concern: early Thursday morning until early
          Friday evening

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for peak
          storm surge flooding of greater than 1 foot above ground.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited storm
          surge flooding impacts. Efforts should now be brought to
          completion before conditions deteriorate.
        - Localized inundation is possible. Follow the instructions
          of local officials. Consider voluntary evacuation if
          recommended. Leave immediately if evacuation orders are
          issued.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized inundation with storm surge flooding, mainly
          along the immediate coast or in low lying areas just
          inland. Higher waves may locally increase area of flooding.
        - Isolated sections of coastal highways and access roads
          flooded, making traveling in these areas dangerous due to
          flood waters.
        - Moderate beach erosion. Large breakers will will erode
          dunes in more vulnerable locations.
        - Minor damage to marinas, docks, and piers. A few small
          craft not secured prior to the storm will break away from
          moorings.
