I know it's come down from a Cat 5 to a Cat 3 so it's less wild than originally thought, but the forecast in Blackpool is for roughly similar wind speeds overnight!

I've just looked and our forecast had been downgraded too! We're down to about 28mph overnight

I see Naples downtown is getting over 90mph gusts currently
update, make that 94mph gusts there now (downtown!)
update now 104mph gusts!
945hpa barometer
that will do damage!
@ Chris we actually got 67mph gusts here yesterday in spring gales ;)

check out the storm surge developing in Naples right now
https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/map/index.shtml?type=active&region=Florida

(the water level was actually lower there as the wind was offshore but now its onshore wind more and the water is flowing back)
update: water level now 6ft above normal in Naples, thats likely to cause coast inundation

Bob, JaxWeather (Jacksonville) lost power about 10:30 last night (sunday). There are 250,000 customers without power in the city so I imagine it will be a while before he's powered up again  :(

ouse survived as did my weather station. Just a little damage on my house but others in the neighborhood didn't far as well. I have no power so can't extract data from the logger. Should be interesting to see what it holds since the eye passed maybe 30 miles away at most. Will post info once I'm able to get the data. Do

Is it a VP2 logger at one minute intervals so approx 42 hours of storage? Has the console been running on batteries since so continuing to store data?

good to hear your house and weather station are OK
was there much flooding in your area?
