Hello Luís!

Nice list and nice world of cactaceae. I have only one cactus, supposedly Cereus jamacaru. Which cactuses are you cultivating here in Portugal.

Regards,

João
Hi! Jamaracu is really great, i don't have it. I have two species that i lost the lable. I hace cereus peruvianus, orange and red prickly pear and pitaya.

I would like to move to Portugal in Cascais or a little further South in the Algarve. It's very nice there, my friends live there.
Yes, it's great here!   ;D

Another indication of just how powerful Sally has become is the fact that it has sucked the water (almost) out of Mobile Bay. DO NOT go out into the bay as this will quickly rise once the storm leaves.

TWC says up to 3 feet possible in Pensacola…

969mb now!


@webberweather

Seeing inbound velocities on the Mobile, AL radar of up to 110-115 knots about 3,500 ft AGL in the NE quad of #Sally’s eyewall atm. Standard reduction + gusting places #Sally’s current intensity ~95-100 kts, & potentially supports an upgrade to a category 3, major hurricane.

@JackSillin
Storm surge from #Sally has exceeded three feet at Shell Beach #LAwx.

The window for safe preparations along the LA/#MSwx/#ALwx/#FLwx coastline isn't going to last much longer, and with surge flooding now underway, some evacuation routes may no longer be passable.

Flood waters continue to rise in Bay St Louis MS well ahead of #HurricaneSally. We are getting out while we can to reposition east toward the Biloxi area

@Dave_Nussbaum

#UPDATE: #Sally will now be a Cat. 2 with 105 mph winds later today and Tuesday. There is a chance it could be even stronger (Cat. 3 starts at 111 mph). Landfall will be around midnight Wednesday along the MS Coast. #BeOn4 @WWLTV

Mobile, Al is under Hurricane Warning

@JackSillin
The most notable change with overnight forecasts from NHC and model guidance is a shift east in the storm's expected track.

The threat to #NewOrleans is no longer quite as high as it was yesterday.

The threat to places like #Biloxi #MSwx and #Mobile #ALwx has increased.
