...IRMA CONTINUES TO POUND THE NORTH COAST OF CUBA... ...FORECAST TO RESTRENGTHEN WHILE HEADING FOR SOUTH FLORIDA AND THE KEYS...

I really hope you won't regret your decision. Good luck, my friend!
I think we will be safe! Just need to have positive vibes sent my way and I'll keep everyone posted on my well being

Yea the cape is pretty much screwed. I'm in Alva and so far only the south side of the river is evacuated.

May god watch over us all!

This is the National Hurricane Center of the US Government National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration:
National Hurricane Center

This is the interactive map predicting storm surge flooding:
HURRICANE IRMA
Click on on the desired area and zoom in.

vvesto lives inland of Fort Meyers, on the west coast. The potential storm surge flood map of Cape Coral, just across the Caloosahatchee River from Ft. Meyers, looked like this before the hurricane hit, and after. The black is water: the Caloosahatchee River empties into the Gulf of Mexico at the bottom left of the images.

I can't imagine not having flood insurance. I had it even when I lived out in Iowa (I was close to the Missouri River. Sorry to say. I feel sorry for the gulf coast, but the people in those little islands out there! That must be terrible having nowhere to run! It will take Cuba, the Virgin Islands, the Florida Keys a lot of work to get back to liveability.
