Florida Hurricane Attorney is on watch: According to Weather Underground, "Subtropical Storm Beryl, which has more to do with how the center of the storm is forming, not wind speed, according to Weather Underground's website. It is the second named Atlantic storm of the hurricane season that doesn't officially begin until June 1."
Live Report from Jacksonville Beach 8 PM EST:
"I live here in Jacksonville, so the roads right now are crazy. Get to hear the fire trucks and the ambulances on occasions. Winds are kicking up with gusts at around 70 mph, so borderline for a Cat 1, but it's making landfall, so that is expected to drop. The key for Tropical systems is that when they make landfall, winds push on direction and then as the eye passes, that pressure reverses into the opposite direction. Also, in the wake of the eye passing, you have a high probability of Tornadoes forming. This is not on par with a hurricane, however the centralized pressure is at 992 which has dropped 4 points from the 5:00 PM reports."
"Last, it's expected to meander around our area, turn back around and head up the coast. This storm should be taken very seriously because that meandering could cause the pressure to drop further. Just my opinion with living her most of my life and watching storms." S.S.
