It was declared a 4 by the time the news came on here at 5. 8 your time?
Haven't heard anymore but at the rate it was moving, wouldn't be surprised
if it didn't hit a 5.
I'm not trusting the models since they were already wrong twice which is 3
times too many for me! And telling people that were further north to wait
until the folks further south were evacuated just makes absolutely NO sense
to me at all.
