|Extra-tropical Storm Surge Predicted for Solomon's Maryland|
While it will be a good ways offshore here, the storm is wide enough that we are expected to experience near hurricane force winds, 3-6 inches of rain, localized flooding, downed trees and limbs and storm surges of at least 1 feet above normal. This picture should update itself as the storm approaches and passes, courtesy of NOAA. Elsewhere on the coast, extreme storm surges are being predicted.
With luck, the marina will get my boat out of the water before it all starts, which will relieve me of that worry. If wind predictions are severe enough, we'll board up the front windows.
All in all, I expect a tough day, but hopefully, with good preparations and a little luck, no particularly onerous consequences. Others who take a more direct hit from this extremely powerful storm are unlikely to fare as well.
