BERMUDA TROPICAL Wx UPDATE- CATEGORY 3 Hurricane Gonzalo

Now would be the time to move you and your family to a three story or elevated steel reinforced concrete structure. This one if for real. My hunch is that the island could be without power for up to a month so make sure you have plenty of cash on hand. Let me know if you have any questions.Winds will be Tropical Storm force this morning becoming Storm and then quickly becoming hurricane force this afternoon. Seas will rapidly build to 35-40 feet. Heavy surge will accompany high tide around 5PM. Structurally this is on the large side for a Category 3 storm. It is moving NNE @15 so there is not a lot of time left to get to a safe shelter before movement will not be possible without risk of severe injury or death from flying debris. I expect the next advisory will maintain the intensity (Roughly) but change the trajectory to more NE. Bermuda lies in the NE quadrant of the storm which is the worst place to be. Good luck to all on the island. You are always welcomed to call or text me to get eyes on the storm from the outside for as long as you have the ability to communicate. +1 562-773-0552

Going to be a tough night there. High tide will be very close to the approach of the eyewall. Storm surge will be fierce. Bermuda Gonzalo.jpg

Merde beat me to it. Merde hits the fan in Bermuda.

data from the weather buoy at Esso Pier...this does not match up with the live video steam at all. I'm saying at least 50 there at the Ireland Island Ferry terminal (where this particular webcam lives).

Pity that Fay took down most of the other webcams!

Just getting into the worst of it now. Check the little map just below the WebCam window and turn on the wind bars.
