My Family In Florida - ***Updated 9-30*** Mom is okay!
My Mom, Grandmother and Uncle all live in Between Tampa and Ft. Meyers, right on the water and Ian is bearing down on them directly, the outer whips lashing their homes and boards are flying off as we speak.

Water is coming through one front door, (My Mom's) and no way to the roof, and would probably blow away even if they could get up there.

The worst is yet to come.

Please pray for EVERYONE at Peril on the Gulf Coast.

I fear it may be a long while before I can establish whether or not they made it through once comm goes all the way down, which I suspect will be sooner not later :(

Dark times. All directed, positive energies mental and spiritual much appreciated.

My 26 year old daughter is in Brandon, just east of Tampa. She stayed because her boss was gonna make them work today, then closed at the last minute so she's stuck. She is alone and scared but in a 3rd floor apartment and has the necessary stuff. Its hard to sit here in Virginia and feel helpless to stop what's coming at her. So far she says, it's just some wind and rain. Not too bad. Praying over the state of Florida and everyone in Ian's path.

Thanks, if I get to speak to my Mom again, or my Grandmother, I'll let them know that it's all a joke as the water enters their homes.

Thanks for the positive energy.

I think that at first everyone expected the storm to go towards Louisiana or Texas like it usually does.

Or, once going over Cuba it would lose steam, as it usually does.

Finally, in my fam's particular case, nowhere to go, not a lot of income, this sort of thing. In my Mom's case, her husband is kind of infirm and hard to drag anywhere...

There's a whole senior thing in Florida that kind of limits options.

I regret that I didn't pay much attention or take it seriously until 2 days ago, or I would've flown my Mom up here but I'm not sure the logistics of how that would've worked with her husband and his condition(s) anyway.

Okay kids if you turn on each other you won’t have energy to handle the issue. Prayers for those who have elderly and infirm family in Florida. My relative won’t leave his house for any reason. Some elderly are just like that. Let’s practice inclusiveness and be helpful not infighting. Sheesh.

Prayers to your family, I'm nearby in SWFL and the wind is bad, and we got a while to go. Lost one moringa tree and a piece of fence. Sure more to come. My elderly neighbor though thought they might be picking up the yard trash and put his cans out. haha I'm sure that trash is gone now. Pray for me as well!
