    This is likely wrong. It's an event that looking at history without any consideration for events in the recent past (last ~5-10 years) or changes expected in the future was deemed to have a 1/1,000 chance of occurring in a given year. Given recent history (3 500 year floods in the last 3 years) as well as future expectations for change, it's probably more like 50-100 year event. Odds of 3 500 year events in 3 years are 1:125M, is Houston that unlucky, or is the classification of a 500 yr event wrong?

          If you can find a collection read Molly Ivins' early reporting on the TX state leg. Those guys are spectacular.

          The stories she took to her grave must have been amazing.

            The Canadian's (CMC) model has this tracking directly over my house in SWFL 10 days out. Plus that puts it in the Gulf which could mean more devastation on top of the devastation. Fortunately these models are terribly inaccurate that far out as you can see by the spread. Just hope it tracks a bit North, because hugging the Antilles means warm water and more energy and much greater likelihood of major impact. No offense to my NE coastie friends, and it might seem selfish, but I'd rather they took a hit from a Cat 1 or Tropical Storm than me and the Gulf States both getting hit from a Cat 4 or 5.

            Next week everybody get an electric fan and point it East.

              Does anyone know a good place to view all of the model data?

              I've been using College of DuPage's since Weather Underground took a massive **** a few years ago.

              http://weather.cod.edu/

              But the model data still seems very limited compared to what Wunderground used to offer.

                    Mike's Weather Page looks like a holdover web page from the 90's, but it has pretty good information and links.

                    Irma's track has moved slightly North in the last update, which is great. Sometimes these storm tracks just keep moving North every day and end up missing everything.

                      Iirc The latest I saw from GFS had it moving closer to the Carolinas from the Northeast and the European model moved it from the Yucat√°n to closer to Florida.

                          The US MARAD has activated 3 reserve fleet ships to assist FEMA with the recovery efforts. SUNY Maritime's training ship and Massachusetts Maritime ship will be activated to sail within 10 days, 5ish day transit to TX coast.

                          TX A&M (Galveston) ship will stay in home port for same role.

                          These ships will be able to "house", feed etc 1200 workers to free up hotel space for displaced residents. Both are set for 30 day relief missions, with optional 30 days after that, if needed.


                          Well, they'll do it if Irma doesn't sink them on their way first.

                            I for Irma --> In the last 16 years 8 "I" storm names have been retired:

                            Ingrid (2013): Triggered deadly flooding/mudslides (in addition to eastern Pacific Manuel) in Mexico

                            Igor (2010): Most damaging hurricane in recent history for Newfoundland; also struck Bermuda

                            Ike (2008): Massive storm surge on upper Texas, Louisiana coast; high wind event well inland to Ohio Valley, beyond

                            Ivan (2004): Devastated Grand Cayman; 10 to 15 foot surge along U.S. Gulf Coast; 120 tornadoes in U.S.

                            Isabel (2003): One of most significant hurricanes to hit eastern Virginia since Hazel (1954); storm surge up Chesapeake Bay

                            Isidore (2002): Heavy damage to agricultural interests in western Cuba, Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula

                            Iris (2001): Devastated southern Belize as a Category 4 hurricane
