living close to the coast, I have been through quite a few hurricanes in my lifetime, but they still make me nervous. Most of them caused little to no damage to the homes we have lived in. We have had to evacuate for category 3, 4, and and one 5 so far. We don't live in any flood prone area, which I am thankful for .I am praying for everyone in it's path. I know from lots of experience, that they can turn suddenly just hours before landfall, and you never really know for sure what it is going to do until right about that time. they can also increase in intensity just before making landfall, so while they are still saying cat2, I would not be surprised if it became a lower cat3 by the time it makes landfall early Wed. morning. I hope anyone on here that lives in LA, MS, AL. coast, or NW FL…stays safe.
