Manditory evacuation of Florida Keys (including Key West)

The National Weather Service in Miami issued a new advisory for people in the Keys and the Dry Tortugas late this afternoon.

...Mandatory Evacutaion of ALL Visitors and Non-Residents..

...Mandatory Evacuation of ALL Recreational Vehicles...

...A Mandatory Evacuation may be required for ALL residents in the Florida Keys and Flamingo Friday Morning at 7:00 AM...

...Residents that wish to leave today are encouraged to do so...
83,000 people. One way in. One way out.

Sounds like a trailer for a movie. But it's real.

HurricaneCity has started feeding audio from the shortwave radio Hurricane Watch Net. The audio is not the best, but you can hear from the hams in the affected region.

The local Miami news radio station is WIOD, and their signal is streamed regularly.
