    Things in Bani are normal. Went to the supermarket this morning and the shelves are fully stocked. Peravia is in red alert but I am assuming probably due to chances of flooding? I hope.

    Irma will wobble because it's circulation is interaction with land permanently.
    the Storm has several small Landmasses in the way of it's surface circulation all the time since last night and now the big Storm Enemy Puerto Rico is already in the TS-Force Windshield.
    looking on PR Radar the Eye of Irma has the size of the whole DR Eastshores to fit in at once.
    Barbuda got a full walk over with the SE Wall in the middle of the Isle.
    Anguilla been walked over on the SE and it looks like they hit the toughest Nortehrn Eyewall.
    we have to hold all thumbs for jstarebel, Jungles adventures in the Mangove channel aren't any fun these days.
    St Thomas and neighbours are on their turn as we speak.
    St Maarten looks very bad.
    don't get any of your guards down due any light shift North shown this morning.
    Irma shifts all the time.
    expect Hurricane Force Winds from the Eastern Cape(PC Airport) Northwards and over Samana and along all the Northshores to Monte Cristi. be ready to take that and we all will be fine and chatting again once Claro wakes back up again.
    the SW Wall will pass very close to the PR NE Tip off Fajardo.
    the Storm hopefully shows the typical bounce back then, with its counterclock wise rotating winds crashing from N to S into the PR Mountains. it is a usual effect that Storms shift North due that when coming too close, and Irma should be there very very close.
    we never in history had a machine like Irma ner the PR or DR Mountains, so we don't know how the effect works on 300kmphr powers. let those mountains kick azz and move the biach a few extra miles northwards, every darn Mile North counts for a million.
    i am confidend that we all will stay fine, but it is too focking close to feel fine.

    sorry, forgot the link for the ones who may not have it stored on their 'puter.
    the only eye in the Sky we have to watch Irma real live is the PR Radar.
    once it is over the Mona Channel we will be blind, as the DR is too stupid to see the need for a Radar station.
    I always wondered why Rainieri never mounted one with public data access here on the Cape, the perfect location to cover the Island and specially everything wandering in from the East.

    It was a small Southern wobble in front of PR. I just watched it 5 times on The Weather Channel.

    Uggh...

    Hurricane Jose right behind and on a similar path:

    With all eyes on Irma, named the strongest Atlantic Hurricane in NHC records, Tropical Storm José is formed much along the same path. The storm is expected to reach hurricane strength as early as Thursday, 7 September 2017. It will bring intense winds and rains to many of the same territories already battered by Irma.

    Virgin Gorda and the BVIs about to take a direct eye wall hit. Brutal.
