We’ve all prepared. We’ve said our prayers and made peace, contacting everyone we’ve ever done wrong by. Hurricane Fay is coming.
All joking aside, it’s actually Tropical Storm Fay, but by landfall tomorrow it is expected to have become a Category 1 hurricane. According to MarketWatch.com:
Fay is expected to become a hurricane as it nears the southwestern Florida coast on Tuesday, NHC said in an advisory issued at 11 a.m. Eastern.
Fay’s maximum sustained winds are near 60 miles an hour with higher gusts, and some strengthening is forecast during the next 24 hours.
Atilus’ offices are directly centered around the spaghetti lines and in the middle of the cone of uncertainty. Check out the picture below to see exactly where we are in relation to where the storm is supposed to go:
We are the red dot with a white border.
Having personally been through Hurricane Charlie and the other storms during that crazy 2004 season I am not too worried, but definitely prepared. Atilus will be closed tomorrow because of the storm and we are expecting to open up again first thing on Wednesday. We will all be working from home though so should you need to contact us email would be best.
A quick note though, on doing just a little bit of research for this post I stumbled upon MyFoxHurricane, a very intense site dedicated to tracking hurricanes. Although it is targeted around the Tampa Bay area it has valuable information for anyone watching this or other storms. And… it also offers live chat, if you’re so inclined.
