Hurricane hunters have found Tammy stronger than expected. Likely to become a hurricane soon.

Stay Safe and stay indoors till the storm passes. Now is a good time to get food and bottle water.

Elaine--I'm sure that's true with regard to locals, but not visitors. Hopefully this will be just a rain event, although the winds seem to be amping up a lot. Best wishes. Stay safe!

So Sxmmartini when I posted about 94L my post was not that much of a crap,
like you stated.May be because as a local I have, unfortunately, acquired some knowledge, and I could see that L94, now Tammy has gormed more or less where Luis did.

They closed the airport for 1 day when Philippe passed through. I wonder if the airport will be closed on Saturday?

Look not sure what your point is but whether a local or a tourist does not matter. If anyone is on SXM during a storm and not checking the NHC which I am sure they are not this will gives them a heads up to prepare.

My point is that before you label anybody post "CRAP" try to read it, as my objective was exactly to inform people, either be tourists or locals, that there might have been a chance of sxm getting hit or brushed by what was, almost a week ago, 94L.

As if I wasn't nervous enough about flying I'm reading all these reports about Tammy. We are suppose to arrive from NY on Saturday.

Sunday would be a better day to travel. It is worth your frequent flier miles or fee to change your ticket now before they close the airport and all flights get backed up. IMHO

Yes, I would check to see if you can switch to a Sunday arrival.

Here is the latest from Storm Carib, as far as closest point of approach.


"Results for St.Maarten/St.Martin (18.05N, 63.12W):
The approximate Closest Point of Approach (CPA) is located near 18.3N, 62.5W or about 45.8 miles (73.8 km) from your location. The estimated time of when the center of the storm will be at that location is in about 53 hours and 1 minute from now (Saturday, October 21 at 5:36PM AST)."

Thank you Sxmmartini, no problem. As per regard of Fabila's trip unless there is a sudden change of directions regarding Tammy, I see it very difficultthat PJIA will be open saturday.

Not understanding why you would want to be in SXM if you could avoid it? Maybe check flights to Miami or Puerto Rico on Saturday, enjoy a day there and fly out Sunday.
