Tropical storm force winds remain possible
Some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight objects become dangerous projectiles.
Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several fences and roadway signs blown over.
Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access routes impassable.
Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent in areas with above ground lines.
Peak Wind Forecast: 25-35 mph with gusts to 50 mph
THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for wind 58 to 73 mph
The wind threat has increased from the previous assessment.
PLAN: Plan for dangerous wind of equivalent strong tropical storm force.
PREPARE: Remaining efforts to protect life and property should be completed as soon as possible. Prepare for significant wind damage.
ACT: Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes hazardous.
Localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become swollen and overflow in spots.
Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief road and bridge closures.
Peak Rainfall Amounts: Additional around 1 inch
THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for localized flooding rain
The flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from the previous assessment.
PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for localized flooding from heavy rain.
PREPARE: Consider protective actions if you are in an area vulnerable to flooding.
ACT: Heed any flood watches and warnings.
The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution of emergency plans during tropical events.
A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power and communications disruptions.
Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned, large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and boats pulled from moorings.
Situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes
THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for a few tornadoes
The tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the previous assessment.
PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for a few tornadoes.
PREPARE: If your shelter is particularly vulnerable to tornadoes, prepare to relocate to safe shelter before hazardous weather arrives.
ACT: If a tornado warning is issued, be ready to shelter quickly.
