There's profit motives to hurricanes now too? The paranoia is real.Any fellow Floridian in the path should rely on the NWS and local authorities for guidance -- TWC, Accuweather, facebook "experts," etc. all derive their information from NWS/NOAA data. And the NWS doesn't have a profit motive or "clout" to consider.
For the Gulf coast and central-west Florida residents, the Tampa Bay Weather Forecasting Office is your local office
For central-east and Atlantic coast residents, the Melbourne office is yours
For South Florida residents, you get Miami
And, of course, the NHC applies to all of us.
