This is a big, well-organized storm. (The Panama City news station that I’m watching has better access than I do, but this image isn’t bad.) Click on the image for a larger version.
If I saw this coming at me, I wouldn’t be sticking around. Even if I had to drive to Chicago to stay with family.
The people who run our satellite services keep trying to hide the satellite data. But I managed to find some. (Most of my hurricane bookmarks are broken just in the past month or 2. Because what would web designers do, if they didn’t change things all the time?)
Update: One of the Panama City news stations I’ve been watching, just lost their feed from downtown Panama City. They heard a loud noise – like a roof collapsing or something – and went off the air.
