"Best Case" Scenario a Cat 4

Dereck Ortt, the PNJ's new "hurricane expert" blogs today that "the best case scenario" for Pensacola "appears to be a repeat of Hurricane Ivan..." with "tidal surges of up to 10-12 feet along the beaches and the bays." If the storm comes ashore anywhere east of Mobile, he says, "then conditions would be significantly worse."

The worst case scenario he's talking about is "145 m.p.h. sustained winds, wind excess of 170 m.p.h. and tidal surges on the beaches and bays... approaching or exceeding 20 feet."
