Just saw an NHC discussion saying a warm eddy broke off into the path of the storm, making it intensifying into a hurricane a high probability.We're trying to decide when to leave for Austin. Maybe tomorrow night, but maybe earlier.
My wife went to the store this morning, and got even more bottled water. Weird our local supermarket isn't out when everyone else seems to be. My mom called and strongly suggested we evacuate. The worst case scenario for us is that we get water in the house. We've had two 100-year flood events in the last two years, and both of those the street flooded enough that there was water in my yard scarily close to the foundation. If we were to get water in the house, that would really suck.eta: One of those two was actually a 500-year event according to the flood gauge closest to me (there's an inch difference in creek elevation from a 100 to a 500 year event)
Category 3 now. 120 mph winds.
