    Yes prayers for everyone in the Florida & Georgia area where evacuations have been ordered. I have an aunt and cousins living in Florida who were evacuating yesterday. This is a huge hurricane!

    The National Weather Service has issued an evacuation order for all of Key West, Florida so if you know anyone there, spread the word as soon as possible.

    My mom & her husband have evacuated from coastal GA.

    Waiting to see the projected path/strength for the Carolinas.

    The one last year messed up our area pretty bad and roads & places are still closed. They actually had to build a lot of new access to points that were cut off.

    My freaking skylight flew off in the middle of the last storm and I had to go outside, get it, bring it inside, balance on the top floor handrail and push it back out somehow and like bungee it down somehow, while balancing and not breaking my neck. Had no choice, rain & debris were pouring in.

    Good luck everyone!

    Prayers continue for everyone in the path. I'm praying it will change course
    or get smaller.

    So many prayers for Houston, Irma hitting, and all the fires out west. Just tragic.

    Have a daughter in east central GA...So far she doesn't seem to be in the path....but she has people in Atlanta she could go stay with.....if the path changes. And who knows about the path. Just glad Irmas has downgraded a bit. Still is horrible.

    Weather channel just showed impact of path on whether it hits the east or west coast of Florida. It turns out the projected west path will be more destructive in Georgia than Florida especially now that is a Cat 4 again.. And still the fires ravage thousands of miles of forested area. Sad.

    A cousin, her children and nieces/nephews finally decided to evacuate the Keys last evening. Most of us were exasperated at their stance to 'wait it out' so we are all relieved. Of course there were no flights out, no gas for travel, and so they went to a shelter. Still, that is much better than staying at your beach front home!!

    Looks like there will be no big deal here. Just waiting for the projected heavy rain.

    Stay safe everyone!

    Tough day in Tallahassee, but sunshine is promised for tomorrow. No Days today with all the wind and power outages.

    Truly pray all our friends & family in the storm ravaged areas are safe. The cleanup begins, and so many have lost so much. Irma has moved Harvey off the news fronts, but have not forgotten those affected there either. Pray for them all.

    Let's not forget the Caribbean as well. Some islands have been absolutely devastated such as Barbuda, St. Martin, the Virgin Islands. Others like Turks and Caicos and Cuba had bad damage too.

    I'm also keeping my eye on Hurricane Jose which is still lingering in the Atlantic but could also potentially hit all the same places as Irma. Hopefully he will be the last for now.

    We have not heard from my cousin & family in the Keys yet. Prayers continue.

    And please remember all those affected by the devastating fires in the west!
