    But I'm not sure these curfews are strictly enforced or observed, based on personal experience in SWFL with Irma last year.

      I have a feeling that one's skin tone might influence one's experience in that regard

        Sounds like it's weakened a little:
        Data from the aircraft and Doppler weather radars indicate that
        maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 105 mph (165 km/h)
        with higher gusts. Little change in strength is expected before the
        center reaches the coast, with weakening expected after the center
        moves inland.

          Wasn't enforced much. Cars still going up and down at 11.30

            Rain just started. Heavy.

                  It's important to know that you need to use a club with less loft.

                        There's already some hefty flooding in AHC's neck of the woods. This is all storm surge - no serious rain or wind in these shots

                        Stay safe out there.

                          Raining now. Power down. Flo is knocking at the door.

                            Good luck. Batten down the hatches.

                              There are a lot of pictures of flooding in New Bern in the Guardian live blog. Hope you're OK Ahc.

                                Looking pretty grim for the Philippines too.

                                  Wind isn't really the issue with Hurricane Florence, it's the 15-20 inches of rain that is forecast to fall in the next 48 hours that's going to be the problem.

                                    There was a clip from this camera that went viral of the wind tearing the flag in half. They predictably got a lot of abuse on Twitter from people furious that no one rushed out 34 miles off the coast in a hurricane to take a flag down.

                                      'Kevin the flag' as I think it became known.

                                        That typhoon (Mangkhut/Ompong, not sure what the dual naming is about), which is hitting the very northern end of the Philippines right now as I type, must be unimaginably violent. It's the most ferocious cyclone anywhere in the world this year. Check out the degree of it on this global wind map, compared to other cyclones:

                                          Downgraded to a tropical storm:

                                          Really good news for people on the east coast of the United States as Hurricane Florence is downgraded to a tropical storm. The winds may well weaken but it is the rainfall which is the killer. Good luck everyone and stay safe.

                                            Ompong - local name; Mangkhut - international name. There are two different agencies that name the typhoons and the internal Philippines one has different naming customs than the one based in Hawaii.

                                              The footage coming out of North Carolina is incredible. I hope AHC and anyone else on here who lives down there is somewhere safe and dry.
