Right now, off in the distance on the webcam, you can see waves crashing up 20 feet high, it looks like!

Saw a video on Facebook of the terrible flooding on Saba. Water cascading down the roads. Hope it's not that bad on SXM.

Carol - yep, I saw that too. Crazy...

And JetBlue 787 ran low on fuel, and had to go to St Lucia. Not sure why, because St. Lucia is pretty far away from SXM....

All flights are landing right now. The rain has eased up a lot.

JetBlue may have gone to St Lucia because they have regularly scheduled service there. I'm not sure about the other islands between there and SXM. I think PR is their normal choice, but that's obviously not an option today. Air France landed with plenty of visibility minutes after 787 declared they were diverting.

Was finally able to connect to sunset beach bar webcam but I'm not seeing any rains now.
Which cam were you able to see the 20 ft waves on?

Maho Beach Cam was showing those waves, occasionally crashing up by RI, way off in the distance, depending on where the camera was aimed. That was the link in the original post.

Crazy, crazy weather this evening! Lots of wind, rain and thunder/lightening. For several hours. Had to get a ride home from Yacht Club from someone with a big car. Mullet totally flooded with cars stranded in the middle.

KLM was wobbling right after take off.

Since it was a Dutch government Facebook page I doubt it.

Weather today should improve with the hurricane moving away from SXM...

One lane cautiously being used in Mullet this morning. Left our car at YC last night but can't retrieve it yet.
