I live in Georgia so we always get Hurricane remnamts. Yall have never seen anything until you have seen trees bending in directions yall have never seen possible. And shingles flying through the air and gutter covers flying off. And cars being knocked around and winds so strong they uproot mighty Oak trees onto freeways.

Along with the heat and humidity we have down here it intensifies the storm to pour down 6 inches of rain in day to make swim ponds in the back yard and streems flowing everywhere.

I've always wanted to witness a hurricane as it hit. That would be awesome! ^o^

It can be weird to watch but its not fun when your lights are knocked out and your basement is being flooded and if yoiu have big trees then they pose a risk of flattening your house.

I don't think Hurricane season is going to be bad as like last year. I would say this I would never want to be in a hurricane they look scary.

hey, i had three hurricanes hit me two years ago, and one just miss last year (with about another 5 in the two years combined that were heading towards me but veered off right at the end).

isn't florida great?

and about hurricane ratings:

everything i hear about all day long is how structures are protected up to 100 mph rating, 75 mph rating, etc, and all the codes have to be up to this to protect us. What most people don't know is that when something has this rating, it means that it only has to last 3 seconds in gusts at that rate. THREE SECONDS!!! that is nothing. People feel so safe that their house has to be 100+ mph protected, but hurricanes last more than 3 seconds, sorry.

and hurricanes are NOT what people expect.

Charlie, which the eye of the hurricane hit about 2-3 miles from my house, only lasted about 30-45 minutes in all. It was a level 4 and my house had sustained winds in the 80+ mph range and gusts above 120.

The other two hurricanes that hit (within 5 weeks time afterwards) were both level 3's just about, but each lasted about two days time. The gusts were only sustained at about 50 mph with gusts above 75.

see, there is a big difference, quick and powerful, slow and destructive.

funny thing, in the three storms combined, NOT EVEN ONE LIGHTNING OR THUNDER! (I know, they don't typical have too many, but normally you'll get some in one of the outer bands - though, we did have a horrible storm front the morning before Charlie with terrible lightning)

now, between the three storms, about 99% of the damage was caused by Charlie.
