My sense is that it may even be a bit stronger by the time it gets there, if it slows down at all. This is not a good situation as this will be the most densely populated coastal area to get hit since Andrew, I think, by a major hurricane.
BTW...TWC just showed vid of a sweet "waterspout" on Sanibel Island (actually was more of a tornado as it was on the beach)...very dust-devilly in appearance...transparent, multiple vortex, and seriously annoying a flock of birds!! They're also showing vid of a nice Bonnie-spawned tornado from Jacksonville, FL...no mention of injuries, probably about F1 from the damage reports.
There was no 20ft storm surge... Looks like NHC got a little too excited with that recon report as winds on the ground were only in the 110mph range (not that "only" is a good word but MUCH less damage than at 145!)
