SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------
THE TROPICAL SYSTEM OVER THE SOUTHERN GULF OF MEXICO HAS STRENGTHENED
INTO TROPICAL STORM HERMINE WITH MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS OF 40 MPH.
ADDITIONAL STRENGTHENING IS EXPECTED TODAY. HERMINE WILL BEGIN
MOVING NORTHEAST LATER TONIGHT AND INCREASE IN FORWARD SPEED AND
APPROACH THE FLORIDA BIG BEND AND PANHANDLE COASTLINE THURSDAY EVENING.
THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY ON THE INTENSITY FORECAST AND
COULD BECOME A HURRICANE PRIOR TO LANDFALL. THEREFORE, HURRICANE
WATCHES REMAIN IN EFFECT FOR THE OFFSHORE WATERS AND COASTAL
SECTIONS OF THE FLORIDA BIG BEND.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* WIND:
PROTECT AGAINST DANGEROUS WIND HAVING POSSIBLE SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS
ACROSS 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:
PROTECT AGAINST LIFE-THREATENING SURGE HAVING POSSIBLE SIGNIFICANT
IMPACTS ACROSS THE FLORIDA BIG BEND AND APALACHEE BAY. POTENTIAL
IMPACTS IN THIS AREA INCLUDE:
- AREAS OF INUNDATION FROM STORM SURGE FLOODING, COMPOUNDED BY
HIGHER WAVES. NON-ELEVATED HOMES AND BUSINESSES ALONG THE COAST
WILL BE SUBJECT TO FLOODING PRIMARILY ON THE GROUND FLOOR.
- SECTIONS OF COASTAL HIGHWAYS AND ACCESS ROADS WILL BE FLOODED
WITH PORTIONS WASHED OUT, ISOLATING AFFECTED COASTAL
COMMUNITIES.
- MODERATE BEACH EROSION WITH DAMAGE TO THE DUNE LINE.
- MODERATE DAMAGE TO MARINAS, DOCKS, AND PIERS. SMALL CRAFT NOT
SECURED PRIOR TO THE STORM WILL BREAK AWAY FROM MOORINGS.

* FLOODING RAIN:
PROTECT AGAINST DANGEROUS RAINFALL FLOODING HAVING POSSIBLE
SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS ACROSS THE FLORIDA BIG BEND AND SOUTH
CENTRAL GEORGIA.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS INCLUDE:
- MODERATE FLOODING FROM RAINFALL WILL PROMPT EXTRA PREPARATION
TO PROTECT PROPERTY FROM FLOODING IN LOW LYING AREAS. ISOLATED
EVACUATIONS MAY BECOME NECESSARY.
- RIVERS AND ASSOCIATED TRIBUTARY CREEKS AND STREAMS WILL RISE TO
BANKFULL LEVELS AND POSSIBLY REACH FLOOD STAGE. RUNOFF WILL
FILL AREA HOLDING PONDS AND DRAINAGE DITCHES, INCREASING THE
POTENTIAL FOR URBAN FLOODING WITH ADDITIONAL RAINFALL.
- FLOOD WATERS WILL APPROACH STRUCTURES IN LOW LYING AREAS. URBAN
FLOODING WILL RESULT IN ISOLATED ROAD CLOSURES. DANGEROUS
DRIVING CONDITIONS.

* TORNADOES:
PROTECT AGAINST A TORNADO EVENT HAVING POSSIBLE LIMITED IMPACTS
ACROSS THE FLORIDA BIG BEND.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS INCLUDE:
- ISOLATED TORNADOES ARE EXPECTED, RESULTING IN A NOTABLE IMPACT
TO AFFECTED COMMUNITIES.
- ISOLATED AREAS AFFECTED BY TORNADOES WILL EXPERIENCE MINOR
DAMAGE, INCLUDING SOME DAMAGE TO STRUCTURES AND SPORADIC POWER
AND COMMUNICATION OUTAGES.
- A FEW STRUCTURES WILL BE DAMAGED BY TORNADOES, MAINLY WITH LOSS
OF SHINGLES OR SIDING. SOME MOBILE HOMES WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY
DAMAGED, ESPECIALLY THOSE UNANCHORED. LARGE TREES WILL BE
SNAPPED OR UPROOTED.

ELSEWHERE ACROSS EASTERN FLORIDA PANHANDLE...FLORIDA BIG
BEND...SOUTHEASTERN ALABAMA AND SOUTHWESTERN GEORGIA, LITTLE TO NO
IMPACT IS ANTICIPATED.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

NOW IS THE TIME TO BRING TO COMPLETION ALL PREPARATIONS TO PROTECT
LIFE AND PROPERTY IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR EMERGENCY PLAN.

OUTSIDE PREPARATIONS SHOULD BE WRAPPED UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BEFORE
WEATHER CONDITIONS COMPLETELY DETERIORATE. ANY REMAINING EVACUATIONS
AND RELOCATIONS SHOULD BE EXPEDITED BEFORE THE ONSET OF TROPICAL
STORM FORCE WIND.

IF YOU ARE RELOCATING TO SAFE SHELTER, LEAVE AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE. IF
HEADING TO A COMMUNITY SHELTER, BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE SHELTER
RULES BEFORE ARRIVAL, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS OR OWN A
PET. TAKE ESSENTIAL ITEMS WITH YOU FROM YOUR EMERGENCY SUPPLIES KIT.
CHECK THE LATEST WEATHER FORECAST BEFORE DEPARTING.

FAILURE TO ADEQUATELY SHELTER MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR LOSS OF
LIFE. ALWAYS HEED THE ADVICE OF LOCAL OFFICIALS AND COMPLY WITH ANY
ORDERS THAT ARE ISSUED. REMEMBER, DURING THE STORM 9 1 1 EMERGENCY
SERVICES MAY NOT BE ABLE TO IMMEDIATELY RESPOND IF CONDITIONS ARE
UNSAFE. THIS SHOULD BE A BIG FACTOR IN YOUR DECISION MAKING.

KEEP CELL PHONES WELL CHARGED AND HANDY. ALSO, CELL PHONE CHARGERS
FOR AUTOMOBILES CAN BE HELPFUL AFTER THE STORM. LOCATE YOUR CHARGERS
AND KEEP THEM WITH YOUR CELL PHONE.

CLOSELY MONITOR NOAA WEATHER RADIO OR OTHER LOCAL NEWS OUTLETS FOR
OFFICIAL STORM INFORMATION. BE READY TO ADAPT TO POSSIBLE CHANGES TO
THE FORECAST.

RISE AND APPROACH BANKFULL LEVELS. RUNOFF WILL INCREASE
WATER LEVELS IN AREA HOLDING PONDS AND DRAINAGE DITCHES,
REDUCING STORAGE CAPACITY TO ABSORB FUTURE RAINFALL.
