Looks like once it clears out Florida Irma will be on a reverse Sherman's March. This looks very very bad.
I updated my brother... looks like he will be okay in Sarasota. The expanding eye wall will put him in Cat 1 or lower winds, which he should be able to ride out no problem.
The issue is also going to be flooding. Florida exited the drought it was having and has now had an excess of rain. At my parent's place in Naples, the retaining ponds are at the highest they have been in years. Add 7 inches of rain in 24 hours and there will be major flooding issues on top of the winds.
