Your so right... the weather channel just shows where the storm is. but no talk of the leeward Islands...Just worried about the U.S. This is so sad. as far as any type of recovery? No electic, no water, can do nothing for a long time... My husband will of cource want to see the damage of our home, but realizes its a total waste to go on Island until things are up and running... We went through luis, and it took almost 2 weeks before we could fly in. Very hard to be so far away, but probably worse for those that reside there... May be too late for prayers...

If it hasn't been mentioned, you can follow or view a general search for Irma on Twitter and this provides a lot of up to date information and visuals.

Thoughts and prayers to all beings and creatures on the island, nearby islands, anywhere in the path of this storm, and to all who love the island and watch closely from afar as the storm develops.

Edited to add - since it is Twitter, you will see some silliness, but the informative outweighs the nonsense and the NASA graphics are especially something to see.

Yes, the animals and helpless creatures as well. The butterfly farm...some of those species rely on the special items they are fed, and will not live once released.
The Parotteville birds. Though I had asked them, and they had plans to move them to a safer location.
Horses.
The Zoo.

Since 7:16am the storm eye, by my unofficial plots/estimates, has made a bit of a right turn of about 5 to 7 degrees to the north. Wish I could master the picture posting ability to show what I'm doing.

Again, listen to the experts. Not me.

How does what you're seeing on your model compare to http://stormcarib.com/closest.cgi ?
Thanks

Sending our prayers to the people of SXM and all those in Irma's path.

Not a model, I'm plotting actuals and measuring distance. It has turned a further couple of degrees again more towards Sxm. Be nice if it did a 180.

I think all the modelers have a duty to be safer than sorry and they all seem to slant towards hitting land than open sea.......which is what you want to get people not to ignore. Storm Carib takes that likely plot and then measures distance.

I'm sure they are as good as anybody.

I will stop complaining about our 28 degree nights here in Michigan and my thoughts will be on the the folks at the Royal Palm. Carol It would be comforting to all if you could continue your updates as the storm progresses.. thanks so much
