Tropical storm watch issued for the BVI. Be careful out there, people!

The safest place to be with Phillipe around is the center of whatever track the NHC has published. That storm just is not trainable and refuses to listen. Thankfully it’s staying a TS. Should solve the BVI’s need for water.

There was rain, wind, thunder and lightning all night. Everything is closed and the power is out. When will I learn not to keep the freezer full.

How you guys on Tortola holding up? Seen some brutal flooding pics/videos from Road Town. And a friend at Brewer's said the road is completely washed out.

All appears to be good here North Sound, VG. We have power and I drove down to Lev this morning to check on the bilge pump in my dinghy. No issues to speak of

Cane Garden Bay webcam shows partly sunny skies today. Hope everyone got some water in the cistern but had no damage.

Still pretty choppy at White Bay (Soggy Dollar Cam).

Somebody was a bunch of sea grass to clean up!

St Thomas is currently reporting the wind at 8 knots out of the south. That’s unusual and creates what you see on the webcam. If the wind was blowing the usual 15 knots and from the south White Bay would be quite nasty!
