Probably....depending upon when/where/if Irma turns northward to follow the current computer model track.

if you look up hurricane/typhoon/cyclone tracks for the various oceans, you can see there are specific areas where they tend to develop, and common tracks most of them follow.

I'm not sure why they develop... I guess it's a factor of winds/continents/currents in or around those parts of the oceans. seems like it's only going to get worse, since "hurricane fuel" is warm water, and we're warming the oceans, along with the rest of the planet.

time to move near the center of the continent.

Forgot about typhoons, which is just another name for the same weather phenomenon. Its ironic that the states which contain the highest percentage of climate-change deniers, are also the most vulnerable, and ground zero for the negative effect/impact that it will have in the coming decades.

Read that MI will be one of the best states to live in, when it really begins to become catastrophic on a global scale. But if so, I won't still be around by then.

I am 45 minutes north of there. It could run straight up the coast and be a 3 or 4 when it hits Daytona.

in terms of planning, this site may be extremely useful for you: space city weather.

they cover houston weather, but also give forecasts for bigger storms / hurricanes. it's just a blog, but the guys who run it are meteorologists for oil companies. they know their business. a lot of info on current projections for Irma there & updated multiple times a day.

sounds like you have a couple days to prepare at least. good luck!

at least you're not evacuating from a major city. apparently when Houston tried that for Hurricane Rita, it jammed all the roads out so bad, more people ended up dying in their cars in the massive 12+ hour traffic jam than in the actual hurricane. That's why they didn't order an evacuation for Harvey.

I'd also download ways or make sure you can view traffic on your way out.

also fill up gas tanks all the way whenever you can, and get a spare couple gallons in a can if possible. Harvey was over a week ago, and there are still gas stations from here to Dallas that don't have gas for sale.

Augusta is over 100 miles from the coast... you'll be fine, unless it stalls overhead and dumps 50+ inches of water on you. that far inland, Hurricanes are just big thunderstorms, basically.


while in Augusta, visit the James Brown memorial. that's what I would do.
