Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Depression Nine is becoming better organized and is
expected to become a tropical storm today. This system will
continue moving northwest with a turn toward the north expected
on later today and towards the northeast on Thursday. On its
current track, this system will approach the Florida Big Bend on
Thursday. There is still some uncertainty on the track and
intensity of this system and it could possibly become a hurricane
prior to making landfall across northern Florida.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* surge:
prepare for life-threatening surge having possible
significant impacts across the Florida Big Bend and Florida Big
Bend. The greatest risk for storm surge surge flooding is in
Apalachee Bay... where storm surge of 2 to 4 feet above ground
level and up to 5 feet is possible in marshy areas along the coast
beginning on Thursday morning. Potential impacts in this area include:
     - areas of inundation from storm surge flooding, compounded
       by higher waves. Non- elevated homes and businesses along
       the coast will be subject to flooding primarily on the
       ground floor.
     - Sections of coastal highways and access roads will be flooded
       with portions washed out, isolating affected coastal communities.
     - Moderate beach erosion with damage to the dune line.
     - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, and piers. Small craft not
       secured prior to the storm will break away from moorings.


* Wind:
prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
the Florida Big Bend. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - moderate damage to frame built homes, primarily due to the loss
      of roofing and siding materials, along with damage to porches,
      awnings, carports, and sheds. Some windows and garage doors may
      fail. Mobile homes damaged, some significantly if unanchored.
      Unsecured lightweight objects become projectiles.
    - Several large trees uprooted; some snapped. Some large roadway
      signs blown over.
    - A few primary and some secondary roads are impassible due to
      debris.
    - Scattered power and communication outages; some locally
      significant, lasting for days.

Also, prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts
across the rest of the Florida Panhandle as well as southwest Georgia
and parts of southeast Alabama.

* Flooding rain:
prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant
impacts across the Florida Big Bend. Potential impacts include:
    - moderate flooding from rainfall will prompt extra preparation
      to protect property from flooding in low lying areas. Isolated
      evacuations may become necessary.
    - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and streams will rise to
      bankfull levels and possibly reach flood stage. Runoff will
      fill area holding ponds and drainage ditches, increasing the
      potential for urban flooding with additional rainfall.
    - Flood waters will approach structures in low lying areas. Urban
      flooding will result in isolated Road closures. Dangerous
      driving conditions.

Prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across parts of the Florida Big Bend and southwest
Georgia.

* Tornadoes:
prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts across the
Florida Big Bend. Potential impacts include:
    - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable impact
      to affected communities.
    - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor
      damage, including some damage to structures and sporadic power
      and communication outages.
    - A few structures will be damaged by tornadoes, mainly with loss
      of shingles or siding. Some Mobile homes will be significantly
      damaged, especially those unanchored. Large trees will be
      snapped or uprooted.

* Other coastal hazards:
an increased risk of rip currents is possible across the Florida Panhandle
and bid Bend beaches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

Now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your emergency
supplies kit is stocked and ready.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the
exact forecast track as there are inherent forecast uncertainties
which must be taken into account.

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

Visitors to the area should become familiar with nearby surroundings.
If you are a visitor, know the name of the County or Parish in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
onsite disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.

    - latest local forecast: equivalent tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 35-45 mph with gusts to 65 mph
        - window for tropical storm force winds: Thursday afternoon
          until early Friday morning

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency planning should include a reasonable threat for
          strong tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant wind impacts. Efforts should now be underway to
          secure all properties.
        - Dangerous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in serious injury, or in some cases loss of life.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - moderate damage to frame built homes, primarily due to the
          loss of roofing and siding materials, along with damage to
          porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. Some windows and
          garage doors may fail. Mobile homes damaged, some

          life. Leave if evacuation orders are given for your area.
          Consider voluntary evacuation if recommended. Poor
          decisions may needlessly risk lives.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - areas of inundation from storm surge flooding, compounded
          by higher waves. Non-elevated homes and businesses along
          the coast will be subject to flooding primarily on the
          ground floor.
        - Sections of coastal highways and access roads will be
          flooded with portions washed out, isolating affected
          coastal communities.
        - Moderate beach erosion with damage to the dune line.
        - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, and piers. Small craft
          not secured prior to the storm will break away from
          moorings.

          previous assessment.
        - Emergency planning should include a reasonable threat for
          isolated tornadoes, mostly with shorter and narrower damage
          paths.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited tornado
          impacts.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. Be ready to
          shelter quickly if a tornado approaches.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable
          impact to affected communities.
        - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor
          damage, including some damage to structures and sporadic
          power and communication outages.
        - A few structures will be damaged by tornadoes, mainly with
          loss of shingles or siding. Some Mobile homes will be
          significantly damaged, especially those unanchored. Large
          trees will be snapped or uprooted.

        - window for tropical storm force winds: Thursday afternoon
          until early Friday morning

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency planning should include a reasonable threat for
          strong tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant wind impacts. Efforts should now be underway to
          secure all properties.
        - Dangerous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in serious injury, or in some cases loss of life.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - moderate damage to frame built homes, primarily due to the
          loss of roofing and siding materials, along with damage to
          porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. Some windows and
          garage doors may fail. Mobile homes damaged, some
          significantly if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight objects
          become projectiles.
        - Several large trees uprooted; some snapped. Some large
          roadway signs blown over.
        - A few primary and some secondary roads are impassible due
          to debris.
        - Scattered power and communication outages; some locally
          significant, lasting for days.

* Storm surge
    - latest local forecast: life-threatening storm surge possible
        - peak storm surge inundation: the potential for 2-4 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - window of concern: early Wednesday afternoon until early
          Friday evening

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          dangerous storm surge flooding of greater than 3 feet above
          ground.
        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant storm surge flooding impacts. Evacuation
          efforts should now be brought to completion. Evacuations
          must be complete before driving conditions become unsafe.
        - Life threatening inundation is possible. Failure to heed
          evacuation orders may result in serious injury or loss of
          life. Leave if evacuation orders are given for your area.
          Consider voluntary evacuation if recommended. Poor
          decisions may needlessly risk lives.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - areas of inundation from storm surge flooding, compounded
          by higher waves. Non-elevated homes and businesses along
          the coast will be subject to flooding primarily on the
          ground floor.
        - Sections of coastal highways and access roads will be
          flooded with portions washed out, isolating affected
          coastal communities.
        - Moderate beach erosion with damage to the dune line.
        - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, and piers. Small craft
          not secured prior to the storm will break away from
          moorings.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast:
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 4-8 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency planning should include a reasonable threat for
          minor flooding where peak rainfall totals are near amounts
          conducive for localized flash flooding and rapid inundation.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited flooding
          rain impacts.
        - Localized flooding is possible. If flood related watches
          and warnings are issued, heed recommended actions.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized heavy rainfall may result in flooding of low
          lying areas, necessitating basic precautions to protect
          vulnerable structures.
        - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and streams will
          rise and approach bankfull levels. Runoff will increase
          water levels in area holding ponds and drainage ditches,
          reducing storage capacity to absorb future rainfall.
        - Isolated flooding in low lying areas will make driving
          difficult. Ponding of water in low lying areas may result
          in brief Road closures.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency planning should include a reasonable threat for
          isolated tornadoes, mostly with shorter and narrower damage
          paths.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited tornado
          impacts.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. Be ready to
          shelter quickly if a tornado approaches.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable
          impact to affected communities.
        - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor
          damage, including some damage to structures and sporadic
          power and communication outages.
        - A few structures will be damaged by tornadoes, mainly with
          loss of shingles or siding. Some Mobile homes will be
          significantly damaged, especially those unanchored. Large
          trees will be snapped or uprooted.
