Looks like Tampa may now get the worst of this; Stay safe
The Weather Channel is reporting that the eye crossed Naples about an hour ago, and is headed due north. I figure Tampa is about 130 air miles from Naples, and if Irma continues at 12 mph, it means the eye arrives about 3:00 am ET, early Monday morning.

I wish the best for our USF friends and anyone else in Florida, especially on the west coast now.

Stay safe...

Received notification Naval Air Station Key West is completely demolished. My unit will be bringing engineering support as soon as the storm is passed and it's safe to travel.

Prayers for our UCF and USF friends.

This storm pales into comparison to what it could have been had Cuba not weakened it. If it didn't ride along the Cuban coast, it would have been a cat.5 before final landfall, devastating Key West, Miami and Naples.

I'm told by folks on scene that Key West took an incredible beating. Storm surge and cat 4 winds ripped the place apart.

The thanks are appreciated but honestly unnecessary. I'm privileged to have a fine crew that's chomping at the bit to get down there. I'm very thankful for them.

Irma took another jog slightly east and mostly north, and the eye is headed more toward Orlando now, but almost the whole state is getting hammered. At least that path will weaken the storm as it moves on.

Having experience a historical storm here in Houston I can imagine what they're going through right about now.

Prayers to all USF, UCF fans and their families here in this board.
