Sort of a combination of sources. I have apps that download the latest GRIB files every 6 hours and follow the EURO models. Also the Weather Channel has some good data mixed with the basics. The spaghetti models don't really show the detail that GRIB forecast do but StormCarib has a neat ap that uses the latest GRIBs to calculate the closes point of approach to any point. You can enter an island (uses airport as locus) or enter a lat/lon and it returns the closest point of approach, distance, time and lat/lon. I plot that on Google Earth and it is easy to see the path shifting south. Right now if you pick the lat/lon of South Sound it says Thorsten's house is toast.

I've shared this site before - free access with a linked in account (which is also free). Really good interactive site.

Glenn
If I wind up with a villa with a wood roof, some siding and no structural failure. I will rebuild. I suspect all the windows will fail as the pressure will cause the window frames to fail. It makes me very sad to see the villa beat up, but that is life.

Thinking of all of you on island and with a stake on land. Praying for good outcomes.

Video from Barbuda, Hurricane Irma.




This is old footage and not from Irma. Shame people have that much time on their hands to simply F with people. I hate the web sometimes.
