Uh, no. As someone who's been through more than half a dozen hurricanes, that list is extremely accurate 90% of the time.

I'm most concerned for the giant water oak in my back yard. If that thing falls it'll take out the back end of my house.

You should try and anchor that oak away from your house. Buy some large thick rope (pirate ship quality), loop it around some big branches/the base and then tie it off on some anchors. That leverage might be enough to direct it's fall.

This post is missing your personal touch. Where's the step that lays out how to profit from the hurricane by scamming and ripping people off?

Damn, didn't think of that. The tree is in my neighbor's yard but leans over my back yard. Maybe I can get him to do something but I doubt it. He's a real asshole.

Thanks. I'm not near the coast so storm surge isn't a concern. The way the storm is tracking now it looks like the eye will pass south of us which is pretty bad. We'll be getting a shit ton of rain along with some pretty good wind gusts and probably a few tornados.

Stay safe, man. It sounds like you are prepared. How are your neighbors faring?

There are reports that it may linger once it makes landfall, but let's hope it ends up dissipating quickly.
