Just using familiar landmarks as reference points, here are the official forecasts for Busch Gardens
and Magic Kingdom
. For both locations, the strongest winds are going to occur between 9PM Sunday night and 6AM Monday morning.
Orlando's going to have some problems from this, with 60-80 MPH winds. That'll do widespread minor damage, probably a few more significant issues here and there, though far from a major disaster. Newer, well-built homes should withstand it fine.
For Tampa, and especially areas along the coast? It just isn't good news, not with the potential for gusts exceeding 100 MPH. Expect more significant structural damage and probably some lengthy power outages (not to mention water issues in coastal/bayfront areas). And not that theme parks are the most important thing in the world, but don't expect BGT to open right back up.
Of course, if anyone has any interests in the lower keys, it's as bad of news as it gets. They're within a few hours of a direct hit.
But I can't end this post without some
levity, so please laugh at this idiot
earlier Saturday in Key West.
