Invest 98L Could Be A Real Problem For Southwest Florida Next Week

Invest 98L isn’t a problem -yet. But it is something we definitely need to be watching here in Southwest Florida.

The big news going on right now is Hurricane Fiona. As of this morning’s update, it’s a Category 4 Hurricane with sustained winds of 130 mph. The truth is, Hurricane Fiona and Tropical Storm Gaston pose no threat to us here in Florida. It’s the next one we’re watching. Here’s the official report from NOAA:

“A tropical wave is producing shower and thunderstorm activity a couple hundred miles east of the southern Windward Islands. The system continues to show signs of organization, and it will likely become a tropical depression within the next couple of days. The disturbance is forecast to move west-northwestward across the southern Windward Islands today and then move toward the central Caribbean Sea later this week. Interests in the Windward Islands should closely monitor the progress of this system as heavy rainfall and gusty winds are affecting these islands. Regardless of development, heavy rainfall is forecast to affect northwestern Venezuela, northeastern Colombia, and the ABC island chain later this week. * Formation chance through 48 hours…high…70 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days…high…90 percent.”

Invest 98L is Likely To Become A Strong Storm

It’s still too far out to make determinations, but we are definitely in the concern phase for the possibility of something mid next week. Last year’s season was nothing, so it’s easy to get complacent. Here’s our Hurricane Guide for you to look over. Don’t start putting up your shutters or filling up gas cans just yet. We’re not at that point.

  • This morning's model runs

    The black line is the ‘mean’ or average. Currently, that’s us.

  • Here's what the radar would look like if the model runs come true

    So what do we know about projected strength? The number over the L is millibars. And there’s a chart for that.

  • Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale

    Category Wind speed Storm surge (height above normal) Atmospheric pressure (millibars) Damage
    1 74–95 mph
    (119–153 kph)
    4–5 ft
    (1.2–1.5 m)
    >979 Minimal: No real damage to buildings. Damage to unanchored mobile homes. Some damage to poorly constructed signs. Some coastal flooding and minor pier damage.
    Examples: Cindy and Ophelia (2005)
    2 96–110 mph
    (154–177 kph)
    6–8 ft
    (1.8–2.4 m)
    965–979 Moderate: Some damage to building roofs, doors, and windows. Considerable damage to mobile homes. Damage to piers from flooding. Small craft in unprotected moorings may break their moorings. Some trees blown down. Evacuation of some shoreline residences and low-lying areas required.
    Example: The Perfect Storm (1991), Hurricane Isabel (2003)
    3 111–130 mph
    (178–209 kph)
    9–12 ft
    (3–4 m)
    945–964 Extensive: Some structural damage to small residences and utility buildings. Large trees blown down. Mobile homes and poorly built signs destroyed. Flooding near the coast destroys smaller structures with larger structures damaged by floating debris. Terrain may be flooded well inland. Evacuation of low-lying residences within several blocks of the shoreline may be required.
    Examples: Dennis, Katrina, Rita, and Wilma (2005)
    4 131–155 mph
    (210–249 kph)
    13–18 ft
    (4–5.5 m)
    920–944 Extreme: More extensive failure on non-bearing, exterior walls with some complete roof structure failure on small residences. Major erosion of beach areas. Terrain may be flooded well inland. Massive evacuation of residential areas as far inland as 6 mi (10 km) may be required.
    Example: Galveston Hurricane of 1900
    5 >155 mph
    (249 kph)
    >18 ft
    (5.5 m)
    <920 Catastrophic: Complete roof failure on many residences and industrial buildings. Some complete building failures with small utility buildings blown over or away. Flooding causes major damage to lower floors of all structures near the shoreline. Massive evacuation of residential areas on low ground within 5 to10 mi (8 to 16 km) of the shoreline may be required.
    Example: Andrew (1992)
  • Can someone just explain this in an easy to understand way?

    This guy does an amazing job.

  • What to do now?

    Nothing, really. The storm is still developing and there’s a lot of factors at play. Especially that cold front that Mike talks about in the video. I actually began my prep last night by buying dog food and vodka. Now we just wait to see what happens.

  • Here's our guide, just in case

    2022 Hurricane Central - Preparedness Guide

    Gavins Ace Hardware Log0  sean king     powerhouse

    Hurricane Central – Preparedness Guide gives you the updated information you may need in the event of a hurricane. Just because 2021 was a quiet year for storms doesn’t mean we can ever let our guard down. This guide is sponsored by local businesses here in SWFL. Gavin’s Ace Hardware, Sean King Law, and Powerhouse Home Services.

    • Know where to go. If you are ordered to evacuate, know the local hurricane evacuation route(s) to take and have a plan for where you can stay. Contact your local emergency management agency for more information.
    • Put together a go-bag: disaster supply kit, including a flashlight, batteries, cash, first aid supplies, medications, and copies of your critical information if you need to evacuate
    • If you are not in an area that is advised to evacuate and you decide to stay in your home, plan for adequate supplies in case you lose power and water for several days and you are not able to leave due to flooding or blocked roads.
    • Make a family emergency communication plan.
    • Many communities have text or email alerting systems for emergency notifications. To find out what alerts are available in your area, search the Internet with your town, city, or county name and the word “alerts.”

    • Preparing Your Home

      • Hurricane winds can cause trees and branches to fall, so before hurricane season trim or remove damaged trees and limbs to keep you and your property safe.
      • Secure loose rain gutters and downspouts and clear any clogged areas or debris to prevent water damage to your property.
      • Reduce property damage by retrofitting to secure and reinforce the roof, windows and doors, including the garage doors.
      • Purchase a portable generator or install a generator for use during power outages. Remember to keep generators and other alternate power/heat sources outside, at least 20 feet away from windows and doors and protected from moisture; and NEVER try to power the house wiring by plugging a generator into a wall outlet.
      • Consider building a FEMA safe room or ICC 500 storm shelter designed for protection from high-winds and in locations above flooding levels.

    • Terminology - Hurricane Watch

      Hurricane watch = conditions possible within the next 48 hrs.

      Steps to take:

    • Terminology - Hurricane Warning

      Hurricane warning = conditions are expected within 36 hrs.

      Steps to take:

      • Follow evacuation orders from local officials, if given.
      • Check-in with family and friends by texting or using social media.

      Follow the hurricane timeline preparedness checklist, depending on when the storm is anticipated to hit and the impact that is projected for your location.

      • Bookmark your city or county website for quick access to storm updates and emergency instructions.
      • Bring loose, lightweight objects inside that could become projectiles in high winds (e.g., patio furniture, garbage cans); anchor objects that would be unsafe to bring inside (e.g., propane tanks); and trim or remove trees close enough to fall on the building.
      • Cover all of your home’s windows. Permanent storm shutters offer the best protection for windows. A second option is to board up windows with 5/8” exterior grade or marine plywood, cut to fit and ready to install.

      • Turn on your TV or radio in order to get the latest weather updates and emergency instructions.
      • Build or restock your emergency preparedness kit. Include food and water sufficient for at least three days, medications, a flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.
      • Plan how to communicate with family members if you lose power. For example, you can call, text, email or use social media. Remember that during disasters, sending text messages is usually reliable and faster than making phone calls because phone lines are often overloaded.
      • Review your evacuation plan with your family. You may have to leave quickly so plan ahead.
      • Keep your car in good working condition, and keep the gas tank full; stock your vehicle with emergency supplies and a change of clothes.
    • After The Hurricane

      • Listen to local officials for updates and instructions.
      • Check-in with family and friends by texting or using social media.
      • Return home only when authorities indicate it is safe.
      • Watch out for debris and downed power lines.
      • Avoid walking or driving through flood waters. Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and one foot of fast-moving water can sweep your vehicle away.
      • Avoid flood water as it may be electrically charged from underground or downed power lines and may hide dangerous debris or places where the ground is washed away.
      • Photograph the damage to your property in order to assist in filing an insurance claim.
      • Do what you can to prevent further damage to your property, (e.g., putting a tarp on a damaged roof), as insurance may not cover additional damage that occurs after the storm.

HOW TO ENTER: There are three (3) ways to enter. Contestants may enter online, via mobile app entry or by text as follows:

To participate in the Promotion, Station listeners will need to listen to a participating Station each weekday during the Promotion Period at 8am, 10am, 12pm, 3pm, 5pm ET or 5am, 7am, 9am, 12pm, 2pm PT, when at each time a Cue will be announced. The Cue will include a unique Key Word. Upon hearing the Cue, enter by entering the Key Word on a Station’s mobile app, entering online at a Station’s website or by texting the Key Word to 45911 no later than fifteen (15) minutes after the start of the hour during which the Cue is announced to be entered for a chance to win a $1000 cash prize.

On each weekday throughout the Promotion, five (5) potential nationwide prize winners will be randomly selected –

one (1) between the hours of 5:00 a.m. PT / 8:00 a.m. ET and 5:15 a.m. PT / 8:15 a.m. ET. (ii) one (1) between the hours of 7:00 a.m. PT / 10:00 a.m. ET and 7:15 a.m. PT / 10:15 a.m. ET.

(v) one (1) between the hours of 2 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET and 2:15 p.m. PT / 5:15 p.m. ET.

 

A total of one hundred fifty (150) Prizes will be awarded in the Promotion. Stations may also announce exact times that future Cues will be played. Station listeners will be entering along with listeners from other stations around the country who will also receive the Key Word announcements at similar times and will be entering before the same Entry Period deadline for each Cue.

Each entry window shall close at the start of the fifteenth (15th) minute after the top of the hour in which the Cue is announced, regardless of when the Cue airs (each, an “Entry Period”). Each participating station reserves the right to announce the Cue between the first one (1) and fifteen (15) minutes of the hour. Following each Entry Period, Beasley Media will conduct a random drawing from among all mobile app, online and text entrants who provided the correct Key Word nationwide during that Entry Period (the “Entry Period Pool”), and one (1) potential nationwide $1000 cash prize winner will be randomly selected and called by Beasley Media promptly following his/her selection. Only one (1) entry per person, per Cue is permitted regardless of the method of entry. The randomly selected Contestant must be available at the time of Beasley Media’s call to be eligible to win the prize. Once reached by phone, the randomly selected Contestant will be deemed the potential $1000 cash prize winner (upon confirmation of eligibility). At the time of the call, the potential prize winner will be required to provide all information requested to verify eligibility. Information requested includes their full name, complete address (including zip code), day and evening phone numbers and date of birth. Beasley Media will attempt to call the randomly selected entrant four (4) times shortly following the random drawing for the applicable Entry Period. No voicemail message will be left. If the potential prize winner fails to answer the calls or is disconnected or is otherwise found to be ineligible, the prize will be forfeited and the Station will randomly select another entrant from the same Entry Period Pool to be the potential $1000 prize winner. This will continue until the $1000 prize is awarded in that hour (time permitting). By participating in the Promotion entrants consent to Beasley Media contacting them by phone at the telephone number from which the mobile entry was received or as indicated by the entrant on the online entry form. Any and all fees arising out of the transmission of or receipt of a mobile call shall solely be the responsibility of the entrant. Message and data rates may apply per the entrant’s carrier. Beasley Media does not guarantee, and shall not be responsible for, the connection or timeliness of any such entries.

Promotion Entities are not responsible for any fees or charges incurred for and associated with mobile entries.

Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same email address. Online entries submitted may not be acknowledged or returned.

To enter via Mobile Phone/Device: To enter by mobile phone, upon hearing the Cue, text the Key Word to 45911 during the Cue’s Entry Period. Message and data rates may apply. Promotion Entities are not responsible for any fees or charges incurred for and associated with mobile entries. The text message entry method is designed to work with most of the major wireless carriers in the United States, but the Promotion Entities make no guarantee that any particular wireless service provider will participate. Entrants should check their phone’s features to see if they have that capability. Entrants should consult their wireless service provider’s pricing plan for details. Entry by text message will not improve your chance of winning.

By initiating a text message to the Station in this contest, you also expressly consent to the receipt of a reply message confirming your entry. Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same phone number.

 

Entrants may enter only once per Entry Period, regardless of the method of entry (i.e., only one (1) entry per person per Cue). Additional entries will be disqualified by the Promotion Entities solely at their discretion. A listener may only win one $1000 cash prize during the Promotion, and only one $1000 cash prize winner per household is permitted during the Promotion Period. For this Promotion only, restrictions that would prevent a listener from winning if he/she had won another recent Beasley Media station contest or promotion will not apply. Use of any device to automate entry is prohibited. Proof of submission of an entry shall not be deemed proof of receipt by Beasley Media. Beasley Media’s computer is the official time keeping device for the Promotion. Any attempt by any Contestant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different identities, registrations or any other methods will void that participant’s entries and that Contestant may be disqualified.

In the event of an equipment malfunction, Beasley Media reserves the right to award prize to a randomly selected entrant from the immediately prior Entry Period pool, except that any such Contestant who was awarded the prize for such Entry Period will be excluded. Given the volume of participation, Contestants may experience an inability to access website to enter.

Online listeners to streamed broadcasts may experience a lag in transmissions due to buffering limitations. Entrants should not rely on streamed broadcasts to participate in any contest as they may be disadvantaged when participating in on-air contests. Entrants are encouraged to listen to the Station for the Cues on-air. The Promotion Entities are not responsible for online streaming delays or outages.

PRIZES: No more than the advertised number of prizes shall be awarded. A prize may not be sold, traded, or commissioned, and is not exchangeable, transferable, or redeemable for cash except in the Promotion Entities’ sole discretion. Prize details and availability are subject to change. There are no substitutions unless specified by Beasley Media and Beasley Media reserves the right to substitute any prize (or prize component) with another prize (or prize component) of equal or greater value at its sole discretion. Prizing may be fulfilled by a third party fulfillment company. The Promotion Entities are not in any way responsible or liable for damages resulting from shipping and handling, loss, use or misuse of any prize awarded in this contest. The prize is awarded if properly claimed according to the Rules and if there are sufficient eligible entries. All other costs and expenses related to prize acceptance and use not specified herein as being provided are the sole responsibility of winner(s). If the winner is disqualified or is found to be ineligible for the contest, Beasley Media reserves the right to determine an alternate winner or not to award the prize, at its sole discretion. Each prize is $1000 cash (in the form of a check made payable to the prize winner upon confirmation of his/her eligibility).  The Station may award up to one hundred fifty (150) total $1000 prizes for an approximate total retail value for the Promotion of $150,000. Each cash prize will be issued as a check payable to the order of the prize winner upon verification of eligibility and upon timely receipt of all completed prize winner paperwork. Checks will be processed and mailed within four to eight weeks upon verification of eligibility and receipt of all completed prize winner paperwork. All taxes, including but not limited to, federal, state, and local taxes, and any other costs and expenses associated with the acceptance and use of a prize are solely the responsibility of the winner. The prize winners will each be issued an IRS Form 1099 for the value of their respective prize(s).

WINNER SELECTION: Potential $1000 cash prize winners will be determined as described above and will be notified by telephone beginning approximately fifteen (15) minutes following each Entry Period. Listeners from approximately fifty-one (51) radio stations in multiple radio markets across the United States will be participating at the same time(s). Odds of being selected as a $1000 cash prize winner depend on the combined number of entries received from all markets. Decisions of Beasley Media with respect to the Promotion are final.

WINNER NOTIFICATION: Beasley Media may notify potential prize winners by telephone with follow up correspondence by email, U.S. Mail and/or courier. Winners must execute and return any required affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release within five (5) days of notification attempt or prize will be forfeited. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the required affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release within the required time period, or if a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize.
