Hurricane Maria
      #1746632 - 09/17/17 06:20 PM (108.45.108.124)

My wife just sadly said Maria's officially a hurricane now. All slates are clean, let's keep our positive thoughts and prayers directed to those we are all thinking about 24/7. God bless them all.

The only positive is that it is still looking like it will be a decent distance from the islands that we're devastated by Irma. And it looks to only be a cat 3. *knock on wood*

A "Hurricane Watch" is now in effect for both the B.V.I and the U.S.V.I. due to Hurricane Maria.

Matt, yes the eye is tracking a little south but Cat3 is Cat 3, quick look at windguru (Which adjusts its numbers frequently)shows St Croix, St John, St Thomas predicted to have seas in low to high 20ft range and winds 70 to over 100+. Tortola not drastically better with winds 60+ and 18 foot seas. They desperately need Maria to push farther south. Then there is Puerto Rico which is the primary relief hub for the islands, go south b**ch!!!!

Something surreal when we refer to a cat 3 as "only a cat 3". But you are right... compared to 185mph this will be a mere windy day. Atleast we all hope and pray that's the case.

Actually they update the old links to new information,
but since I am not part of the private club here, I won't bother you anymore.

Yeah, not that it isn't something to be concerned about or prepare for, but a bit more usual for what the Islands tend to see and are better prepared to handle - when in their undamaged state anyway. Certainly anything hitting the islands that were devastated is a problem.

Looks like it is going to hit the Virgin Islands "only" as a Cat 4 Tuesday p.m. or Wed. a.m. with 12 to 18 inches of rain plus storm surge. No big deal I guess.
