Wow. OK. I had my doubts there for a second, but I would say that Ian is crossing into the gulf, because I am watching the wind speeds increase right before my eyes. He is coming into the gulf right as the sun rises. Good chance he regains strength quickly.
I believe most of the hunters are following the southern route and staying far from any flood traps. Away from shore. This is representative of the southern track, which keeps it intact in the atlantic in some fashion (possibly reigniting?)
The pros seem to have dialed him in now. They believe he will ride north THROUGH the state. This a decent cane with a lot of potential for water, water, water... and if you are anywhere near that eye when it comes in, plan on 120 winds.
