Simulation of Miami Flooding If Hurricane #Irma Is A Direct Hit

Right now, category 4 Hurricane Irma is brushing up against Cuba, which should slow it down somewhat. While it’s still forecast to hit FL as a Cat5, a straight shot missing Cuba into the 90 degree waters south of Florida would be a worst case scenario.

And while current forecasts have Irma hitting the southwest region of Florida, continuing up into the Tampa region, the folks at Climate Central have put together a simulation of what Miami would look like on Sunday morning, according to Friday AM storm surge forecasts.

Update: Climate Central has offered this update. Apparently they #FakeNews’d us with an ‘incorrect tidal point reference.’ Still a very interesting simulation.

Wherever Irma hits, it’s not going to be pretty.

    Irma better hit. This has a “do what you are told” feel. Hurricanes in Florida? No way. Impossible. Mommy save us.

    LOL. ClimateCentral.org – less accurate than Al Gore. Here’s their latest headline:

    “Hurricanes and Climate Change: What We Know”

    An appropriate reply from @ChrisStigall:

    “Always amused when those who mock organized religion cling steadfastly to their witchraft-like belief that humans control the weather.”
