direct hit... not good. No way, will this not cause destruction... How much? We that own or live there will know for sure... Others will just be troubled by vacations.. I wish I could feel bad but right now, I feel bad for property owners and residents...

I've been watching this for days and now I'm really worried for SXM. It's up to a Cat 4 with sustained winds predicted to be 150mph. Please folks, listen to the warnings and take shelter. This thing is getting close.

The Prime Minister of Sint Maarten had 2 meetings uploaded on YouTube where he talks about preparedness, etc

We are watching the track also. New Orleans could very well be in the "line of fire". However, right now our hopes and Prayers are with those of you on SXM and nearby.

I am so ready for hurricane season to be over - first Harvey, here in Texas where we live, now Irma heading to St. Martin, our favorite vacation spot & where we have many friends, then it looks like Irma may head to Florida, where our son lives in Tampa - will it ever end!!

Know all about that - lived in South Florida for quite a few years & have been through 2 hurricanes - still want it to be over - as much as I like summer, I hate hurricane season!

Have to agree!!!! All it takes is one big one to shut everything down, and cause major destruction... this does not look good at all. God watch over my friends and please watch over our home...

Tampa hasn't had a direct hurricane hit since 1921. I hope that doesn't mean we're due.

I'm looking at projected tracks and intensities around the area, and I'm reminded of Luis. Hopefully, if Irma is that close, she'll have more forward speed and not linger over the island.
