Looks like Irma is headed for Key West. At least that's where most of the models put it. Storm surge of 11-13 feet.

Problem is that Key West has only 7 feet of elevation at it's highest. So the surge will put water over the entire island, plus the waves on top of that water.

Everyone should evacuate and don't expect any structure to be standing when they come back. If they CAN come back. Bridges between keys may be down for months. I wouldn't be too surprised if they have to survey the whole island to find out were the old parcel boundaries are.

Don't try to ride this one out. Key West will not be survivable if Irma doesn't turn away. All evacuation hold-outs will be dead.

Now the models predict it goes up the east coast of Florida. Even if it does that, Key West may not survive. Pack up anything you want to keep and head north, before it's too late. The bridges out the Keys probably won't all survive, and if just one gives out you're stuck there. If you are in a car on the Keys when Irma goes by, you WILL drown.

I'm not even sure where you can go: All of Southern Florida is pretty damned flat and pretty damned low. People will have plenty of opportunity to drown if they are stuck in traffic jams while evacuating in Southern Florida. Even when you get further North, the land is flat you could be flooded out from the rain.

Get ready for some major chuckles:

Rush Says Irma is a Big Conspiracy to Sell Batteries and Bottled Water

Of course he also blames Liberals because they need big hurricanes to sell their Climate Change nonsense.

Rush lives in and broadcasts from Palm Beach.

Floods are pretty common here, almost an annual event. I figure it would take a real humdinger of a storm to actually flood my house.
Trouble is...this is one real humdinger of a storm.
