Hi everybody,
we're living in Germany, but we own a house in Cape Coral. Currently nobody's telling us what has happened. We're in South West, close to the fire station and the Publix supermarket. If anybody has any information on the general situation (hey, is the tikki hut o.k.?), we'd be more than grateful.
Kind regards to everybody in the Cape, and we're really with you with our thoughts!

We survived better than Charley. 80-100 mph wind gusts some pool cage damage but not too widespread (I don't think) lots of foliage debris all over. But the good thing is its 67 degrees and the humidity has been swept down into the Carribean Smile

It seems as though there has been less damage than Charley in this area of SW Cape near beach and agualinda. Some trees blown over and some minor shingle/soffit damage.

We had little damage to our house. Some shingles blew off from the north side when the wind was pounding from the north/northwest. We also had a 25' coconut palm snap at the base which is laying in the front yard. I have included a raw data file from October 24th where you can view the data we recorded through the storm. The highest wind gust we recorded was 69mph, which was reached on several occasions. Just shy of hurricane force but still powerful. Shocked

Is there water and electricity there? How is the gasoline situation in Cape Coral? I haven't seen any posts and I'm wondering if anyone is able to post, or if (fortunately) there is just no bad weather to talk about.

I think only a very small portion of the Cape is powerless. I don't think gasoline is in that much of a shortage. I did see gas stations in fort myers with gas. It seems to be spotty but should get better. City utilities never went down so anyone on city water/sewer is fine.

I spoke with my brother earlier today who is located off Rose Garden Road and he is still without power from down power lines. I believe that whole section from El Dorado south between Skyline and Pelican is affected. LCEC is still unsure when it will be fixed.

This information came from capecoral.net Mad

Debris Removal Plan

Debris Removal

The City will begin its debris removal program beginning on Monday, October 31. TAG Grinding, Inc. will have 10 crews in Cape Coral for the first pass, focusing mostly in the southeast Cape initially and then the southwest and north.

NOTE: Waste Management will suspend all horticulture pickup this week and until further notice. There will be no yard waste pickup this Friday/Saturday.

Residents must separate their debris into two piles: Construction/Demolition and Horticulture. Debris can be stacked or placed in containers or bags. Do not commingle regular garbage with the storm debris.

Keep all debris away from mailboxes and other yard ornaments to avoid damage.

The City also will open a debris dropoff site for residents who prefer not to wait for the contractor pickup. The site will be located at Pine Island Road and Andalusia (north on Andalusia to NE 7th Street, east to NE 10th Ave, south to dropoff entry). The site is for Cape Coral residents only, and the site will be monitored. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. daily until further notice. Click here for a map to the site.

The City also will have a debris information line for citizens to call to report canal debris and any damage caused by the contractor. The number is 573-3111.

Well, the weather has been just about perfect since Wilma left but I suspect the lack of posts has more to do with folks being busy cleaning up than anything else.

Jeff, do you think the reason the wind speeds were so high were due to the high and low pressures colliding like the picture below? This is quoted from a website I found.

Quote:
The closer the high and low pressure areas are together, the stronger the "pressure gradient", and the stronger the winds. On weather maps, lines of constant pressure are drawn (as in the example, below) which are called "isobars". These isobars are usually labeled with their pressure value in millibars (mb). The closer these lines are together, the stronger the wind. The curvature of the isobars is also important to the wind speed. Given the same pressure gradient (isobar spacing), if they are curved anticyclonically (around the high pressure in the below example) the wind will be stronger. If the isobars are curved cyclonically (around the low pressure in the example above) the wind will be weaker.
