Glad cranky saw it too cause I was about to say I swear it looks like its tracking WSW on the last few frames of satellite. But like he says may just be a wobble. 

I really do fear for the coast of Florida right now.

Listening to Eric's voice when he said "...the pressure is STILL falling!", you know this is something rare. You could also hear the urgency in Ken's voice as he gave out information. I would think that everyone there is pretty frantic right now, and they have everyone and their brother working on this.

I’ve been watching this through this page and twitter and am frankly horrified by what the Bahamas are about to endure.  I’m pray it turns earlier so Florida is spared, but it feels like that is looking less likely.  Thanks for keeping us updated.

It is not going to be good AT ALL.

I as Pastor, had special prayer for the Bahama’s at our church this morning. Mercy is the only thing now that will help them. Too late for anything else. Since Camille I have not sensed such dread And horror.  Katrina was a total different monster

Maria in Puerto Rico 2 years ago is probably the worst devastation I've ever seen and this one I fear may be worse with the way it is still rapidly strengthening on approach. I just pray that as many people as possible were able to get out of there before the airport shutdown.
