As you can see from the picture above, Hurricane Irma is a force unlike any other in history. The size, the intensity, the damage are unprecedented. All of Florida is in it’s path. Whether it veer right or left makes little difference. The picture above puts hurricane Irma in perspective about how it will affect Florida.
Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Lake Worth and West Palm Beach are in it’s projected path. I live in Villaggio which is in the 55+ corridor in Palm Beach County. It is likely that all of this area will be in the NE quadrant which is where the winds are the most dangerous.
We are all shuttered up, have a good water supply and I got lucky today, I went to Publix and they had JUST received a shipment of D size batteries (for flashlights). They were all gone within the hour. Water, gasoline and batteries have been extremely hard to find.
The prediction is that the power in some places could be out for weeks and maybe even months. Durring Hurricane Wilma in 2005, we were without power for 7 days. Lots of bar be cues were used at that time. Neighbors helping neighbors and food sharing. That was the good part, (if there was one). The rest was extremely hard.
I’ll write another post after it passes. Stay Tuned
