It looks like Ivan might be traveling a similar path to Charley. Just read that folks in the Florida Keys were told to evacuate.Areas of Florida are still in such terrible shape from Charley and Frances and will be for quite a while. Now Ivan?

Sympathy and prayers for all the residents of Grenada- just read that this island was devastated by Ivan.

Let's just pray for a miracle- that Ivan weakens and doesn't cause any further devastation.

A Mandatory Evacuation has been ordered for The Keys, and the residents are taking this storm VERY seriously. Many of the residents, in the past, have ignored the warnings, boarded up, and stayed in their homes, to weather out the worst. This time is quite different. Even thought the storm, if it does come, is 3-5 days away, Key's residents are leaving, in droves. Even the old Key West "Conchs" are packing up and shipping out.

This is causing some traffic problems... There is only one road in to, and out of, The Keys, U.S. 1 ("The Overseas Highway"). Worse yet, it only has two lanes, one northbound and one southbound. When there's an evacuation, both lanes are designated northbound. But, still, two lanes to evacuate thousands of residents is totally inadequate.
