Hi RailDawg, thank you for sharing your insights. It sounds like you went through a lot and I'm glad you got home safe and sound. There was chaser video from a Panama City garage on youtube. Was this what your experience looked like?

Hey thanks for this!

I was right there and can in fact see Big Truck lol.

I don’t do pictures or videos but count on others.

This is really appreciated.

Although I have been a hurricane forecaster since 1980 that only means I've been wrong lots of times.

I hope the reanalysis provides greater insight into Michael's nearly unprecedented intensification right up through landfall. When I look at Camille, Michael and Charley -- all intensifying major hurricanes approaching the eastern or northern gulf coast -- a couple things jump out:

- They were all relatively small cyclones. An argument is made that a smaller circulation is less prone to entrainment of continental air on approach.
- They all had not peaked in intensity in the days or hours preceding landfall.
- They all were moving at a decent clip which mitigated the relatively shallow depths of OHC near the coast.

Things that were unique to Michael:

- Complete eyewall formation was stunted until the last day or so before landfall, and yet the storm continued to slowly intensify throughout.
- Favorable trough interaction on the last day seemed to play a big role in helping to storm organize. Seem to recall something similar with Charley as well.
- Re: the last point, not sure if that trough was also responsible for moistening the entire column in Michael's vicinity near the coast. There was plenty of dry air over the Western Gulf during Michael's trek, and maybe this was responsible for the delayed eyewall development.

Needless to say, reanalysis should be fascinating.

Just wanted to post this while it's still available--the eerie data vacancy after Michael went through, where instruments either lost power or were blown apart.

Mexico Beach destruction on Google Street View. Really brings it home more so than flyovers and photographs. :eek:

Article on F-22s at Tyndall

Interesting excerpt:

As Hurricane Michael passed overhead, Tyndall’s own weather monitoring facilities registered wind gusts up to nearly 130 miles per hour. Holmes said that, based on other data, the actual peak speed was closer to 172 miles per hour.

Damage video from Panama City some may not have seen yet. Pretty dramatic.

Another sobering damage video. This one has gotten more exposure, although I hadn't seen it before.
