THE FLORIDA BIG BEND. POTENTIAL IMPACTS IN THIS AREA INCLUDE:
- MODERATE DAMAGE TO FRAME BUILT HOMES, PRIMARILY DUE TO THE LOSS
OF ROOFING AND SIDING MATERIALS, ALONG WITH DAMAGE TO PORCHES,
AWNINGS, CARPORTS, AND SHEDS. SOME WINDOWS AND GARAGE DOORS MAY
FAIL. MOBILE HOMES DAMAGED, SOME SIGNIFICANTLY IF UNANCHORED.
UNSECURED LIGHTWEIGHT OBJECTS BECOME PROJECTILES.
- SEVERAL LARGE TREES UPROOTED; SOME SNAPPED. SOME LARGE ROADWAY
SIGNS BLOWN OVER.
- A FEW PRIMARY AND SOME SECONDARY ROADS ARE IMPASSIBLE DUE TO
DEBRIS.
- SCATTERED POWER AND COMMUNICATION OUTAGES; SOME LOCALLY
SIGNIFICANT, LASTING FOR DAYS.

* SURGE:
PREPARE FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF STORM SURGE FLOODING IN THE FLORIDA
BIG BEND AND FLORIDA PANHANDLE. THE GREATEST RISK FOR STORM SURGE
SURGE FLOODING IS IN APALACHEE BAY...WHERE STORM SURGE OF 2 TO 4
FEET ABOVE GROUND LEVEL IS POSSIBLE BEGINNING ON THURSDAY MORNING.

FLOODING WILL RESULT IN ISOLATED ROAD CLOSURES. DANGEROUS
DRIVING CONDITIONS.
