The surf has been building on Simpson Bay Beach all morning.

This is a cool wind monitoring site. You can see future predictions and past conditions as well.

Overall, if that's the only 'damage', that's a big win.

Dreary morning but weather should be improving with this system moving north.

The extreme lightning in this system caused a fire at the Falmouth Marina building in Antigua! Luckily nobody hurt, but I'll miss the bars that were in there...

Cariblee--two ships in port today. Looking to be a really rough day for people trying to watch planes at Sunset.

I was watching a group walk on the sand just north of where the rocks start and the drop off is significantly over their heads....maybe a 7-8 foot drop

Just finished our walk the length of Simpson Bay. Quite a bit of sargassum. The guys have been hard at work cleaning it up in front of Beachside. Refreshing swim in the pool. All is good.

Boucharda....WOW! 7-8 foot drop! That is impressive.

Do we know if the two ships that are scheduled actually came? They may well have changed their itineraries based on the location of the storm.
