I would think a condo would get less destruction than a private house, could be wrong... We have a new roof, solor panels that could be destroyed. we do have hurricane shutters on most windows, but the ones that do not? yukkkkk

Well they probably could drop a thermo nuclear bomb into the eye of the hurricane, that would probably break it up,
but then the radioactive fallout would be worse than the hurricane!

I believe they would stop the flights when the storm hits. they are saying leeward Islands Tuesday eve. or early wednsday... When it gets real close, They may cancel flights as early as tomorrow.. If a flight comes in, they want to know they can get out. So as a precaution they would just cancel... I could be off track, but my guess is they will watch the storm carefully... Yes they will cancel if this storm hits land...

Oh boy, new ownership! What floor is the condo on Kim? I would worry about storm surge, unless you are up on the cliff.
Does the unit have hurricane shutters? The caretakers have most certainly pulled everything in off the balconies.

Since this one is already long, will close this one here and start a new thread with the hurricane WARNING.
