    Congratz 😕
  3. Hoping those in the southeast remain safe this week! Areas along the panhandle of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina are in for a wet and windy next few days. Hurricane Michael made landfall along Mexico Beach, FL with maximum sustained wind (over 10minutes) of 155 mph and a minimum pressure of 919mb. This is 1mph shy of a Cat5 hurricane. To compare pressure, Hurricane Andrew (1992) had a minimum pressure of 922mb. It is now the third strongest hurricane to make landfall in the US by these measurements. I beg those in the "path" to heed warnings and keep yourself informed of hazards by checking www.weather.gov frequently for your area. Just because it's set to be a tropical storm by the time it reaches the SE states does not mean that there are not terrible hazards still possible for us. Florence was a low-grade hurricane when it made landfall on the NC/SC coast and still caused terrible effects for those living there. Rain and wind are never a good mixture. Be wary!

  4. Happy birthday 🙂

    Tutorial on Trading

    I'm in the squad 😛 I don't think sharing every guide for the squads on social media is the swellest idea.. was moreso leaning towards events, group runs, etc. Things that would potentially attract new members if they see a game doing things together as a group.

    Revival of Social Media!

    Hellur folks! We haven't really put a whole lot of love into the various OD social media pages in a bit of time.. I've recently gained access to the Twitter and Facebook pages so we can start getting our name around again outside of the games that we play. If you guys have any events coming up or anything that would attract players to OD, feel free to comment below with the details and I'd love to share it on the social media platforms (that's if you want new people coming in!). Thank youuu 🙂 Twitter: @TeamOverdosed Facebook: Overdosed Gaming Facebook

    Revival of Social Media!

    I just want to provide a little bump to this thread as the social media pages are still alive and in need of some love! Also - note that the link to the Facebook page has changed as the group was remade due to some issues with the prior one. Make sure to like and follow that page! We definitely need some posts for that, so pm me on forums or on the website itself if you'd like something posted. It'd be cool to see some input from all divisions/squads.

      The one good one?

  14. It's been a little while since I've done these and I kind of dropped the ball for Tropical Storm Gordon, but with the Atlantic ramping up in activity, I figured I'd give my two cents again. Keep in mind that this isn't coming out of my rear - I'm currently a senior in Atmospheric Sciences (concentration in Weather Forecasting) and have a massive interest in emergency management in significant weather prone areas. Tropical weather is my love, it's a little unhealthy, but furthermore, I love to make sure people are aware of any impacts and can be kept safe. There is a never-ending learning situation in Meteorology, so I'll share what my professors have briefed us with and my own personal knowledge. Tropical Storm Florence Current Data (as of 5pm AST): Max Winds: 70mph (Tropical Storm) Min Pressure: 989 mb Movement: W at 5mph Current Impacts: There are currently no major impacts to be expected as this system is not interacting with land. Earlier model runs had this storm moving over Bermuda, but this has since been removed from the model tracks. Since the storm is not interacting with land, there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect, but there is a concern for high surf and swells along the east coast of the U.S. and Bermuda. I wouldn't get into the water along the east coast - rip currents are going to be a major threat. Future Impacts: This is where the nitty gritty is going to happen. Earlier this week, Florence had made it to hurricane strength but had been impacted by strong upper-level wind shear (change of wind direction and wind speed with height) and effects from dry air. This activity almost killed the storm, but Florence was strong (lol)! As of now, Florence is recovering slowly from these effects and is moving into warmer waters - this will help with rapid re-intensification, which is starting to show through the convection of the outer bands (thin clouds in the outer bands with persistent deep convection near the center of circulation). Florence is forecast to intensify to a hurricane late tonight or tomorrow morning. This rapid intensification is expected to continue into becoming a major hurricane (category 3+) in the matter of 36-48 hours. Current models have a peak intensity of 125 knots (144mph), which is a category 4 major hurricane. The movement of Florence is very slow.. almost painfully so. The direction of the track is based off of two high pressure systems; one to the northeast and one to the southwest. There is a blocking ridge expected to form off of Bermuda which will help accelerate Florence and keep the track of impact closer to the States. The exact landfall point is still extremely uncertain as it's still a week out and there are still developing ridges that need to be watched to determine the exact path, but the likelihood of a direct impact to the U.S. coast is becoming more and more certain with each run of the models. It's too soon to start giving out numbers in terms of timing, location, and strength, but with the current forecast, I'd rather people be safe than sorry. People along the U.S. east coast should have hurricane plans in place (this includes Florida through North Carolina primarily, for now) and begin carefully watching the progress of this system through the next few days. I'm watching this storm very carefully as I, personally, am living in North Carolina and my family is closer to the coast than I am. It's best to not compare this storm to past storms, every storm is different. If I hear comparisons of Florence to Hugo or Sandy, I'mma be upsetti. Tropical Storm Helene Current Data (as of 8pm AST): Max Winds: 60mph Min Pressure: 998 mb Movement: W at 13mph Current Impacts: Currently, Tropical Storm Helene is located SE of the Cabo Verde Islands. There are hurricane watches in effect for the Cabo Verde islands, as well as tropical storm warnings. Total rain accumulations for these islands are anticipated to be around 3-5 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 8 inches. Rainfall of this magnitude in a short period of time can create flash flooding. Future Impacts: Tropical Storm Helene is anticipated to strengthen to hurricane status in the coming days. The general track is anticipated to continue to the west, with intensification occurring along this path. According to models, the environment that Helene will be located in after 72h will ultimately weaken the system significantly. The motion is anticipated to continue moving W/WNW for the next 3+ days before turning NW due to a subtropical ridge. The model guidance does not expect any interaction with land. Tropical Storm Isaac Current Data (as of 5pm AST): Max Winds: 40mph Min Pressure: 1005 mb Movement: W at 7mph Current Impacts: There are currently no watches or warnings in effect for Tropical Storm Isaac and no hazards affecting land. Future Impacts: Currently, Tropical Storm Isaac is a low-grade tropical storm. Strengthening to hurricane status is expected to occur by Monday. It is extremely far out to say anything final, but this is a storm that Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic should begin keeping an eye on early this week. The track is generally westward with a northern tilt beginning at the end of the 5-d forecast period. **As always, if you have any questions, I am always happy to answer them. I enjoy these little weather briefings and I like sharing my knowledge with people so they are better prepared. Stay safe <3** Tags: @TypeReaL(OD) @Aerineth(OD)

    need guild on wow

    @NekTheSheep currently is leading the squad, to my knowledge. He can typically be found on Discord. No need to make a new one 😛
  17. I do not know if we have OD members in Hawaii.. But please be safe and keep an eye on weather outlets and shelter alerts. Spaghetti models are trending towards a turn and landfall in Hawaii for Hurricane Lane.

    Does it snow as much as people say it does (like 8 months out of the year)?
  19. Happy birthday comp! :3

      Why Thank you Rose!

  20. Heya folks, the long awaited merge event between MHW and FFXIV is officially live on FFXIV! We are able to get new gear (glamours, I'd assume), new minions, and a pretty new mount. If you're interested in playing with us, come check out the OD Discord and poke me! Further reading about the event can be found here: https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/special/monsterhunter/

    Some new glamour purchases I made.. I spent $60 on a few new glamour outfits and some dances. I might have an addiction to looking aesthetically pleasing. Ft. @RaraDeaf (ex-OD member)

    Computer Purchase - Input Needed..

    Hey guys, I am in the process of buying a new computer but I need help from my PC savvy friendos! @CompFreak(OD) had given me a build that would be awesome but most of the parts are out of stock now that I'm ready to individually purchase them, not to mention the fact that the price of the total build has gone up in price. Currently, I've reduced my budget back to what it originally was (around $1000) and am looking at prebuilt to make life a little easier. My friend has gathered some links for me and I'm interested in learning about which is better for the purposes I'm needing it for.. I'm tired of being on laptop life. I'm looking to be able to play games like FFXIV, LoL, Overwatch, and many various mmorpg games that might come out in the future.. the most intensive game graphically that I'm trying to get back into is BDO.. and I'll be investing in MHW when it comes out. Gaming without issue is the overall goal. I have the mouse (razer death adder) and keyboard (razer ornata chroma) all set.. just need the actual PC and a monitor now.
