    i think Mike is in Germany now --
    he said he would stay on the hurricane watch but only for emergency type situations.

    Don't call me -- I'll call you
    type of scenario

    Or as Neil Simon would say
    Same Time Next Year

    Still early days for Beryl, I'm sure if she develops more beyond Sunday (which is unlikely), Mike will be on the case.

    From the National hurricane Centre :

    Hurricane Beryl Advisory Number 4
    NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL022018
    500 AM AST Fri Jul 06 2018

    ...TINY BERYL BECOMES THE FIRST HURRICANE OF THE 2018 ATLANTIC
    HURRICANE SEASON...


    SUMMARY OF 500 AM AST...0900 UTC...INFORMATION
    ----------------------------------------------
    LOCATION...10.6N 45.1W
    ABOUT 1140 MI...1830 KM ESE OF THE LESSER ANTILLES
    MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...75 MPH...120 KM/H
    PRESENT MOVEMENT...W OR 275 DEGREES AT 14 MPH...22 KM/H
    MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...995 MB...29.39 INCHES



    DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
    ----------------------
    At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Beryl was located
    near latitude 10.6 North, longitude 45.1 West. Beryl is moving
    toward the west near 14 mph (22 km/h). A faster west-northwestward
    motion is expected through the weekend. On the forecast track, the
    center of Beryl will remain east of the Lesser Antilles through
    early Sunday.

    Satellite data indicate the maximum sustained winds have
    increased to near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher gusts. Some
    additional strengthening is forecast today. Beryl is forecast to
    quickly weaken by late Saturday and become a tropical storm or
    degenerate into a strong open trough near the Lesser Antilles late
    Sunday or Monday.

    Beryl is a very compact hurricane. Hurricane-force winds extend
    outward up to 10 miles (20 km) from the center and
    tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles
    (55 km).

    The estimated minimum central pressure is 995 mb (29.39 inches).

    Beryl is a Tropical Cyclone, max powers would be a short lived status as a Hurricane.
    our Island/Caribbean protecting conditions East of the Islands are nicely up as our protection shield.
    the last almost 1000 miles towards the Island Belt are actually strong enough to knock down any Hurricane Formation that would close in on our Tropical Highway from our East towards the Caribbean, so nothing to fear out there at this point.
    the máximum powers this Tropical Cyclone Beryl could have, when entering the Eastern Caribbean Sea, is as a simple Tropical Wave.
    while I watch all upcoming and of course active stormy áreas, even now that i am for 2months on vacation in Europe,
    my detailed Observations, Reports and Warnings will be published only for Systems/Storms which could become dangerous for our Island.
    this Beryl i do not give a chance to become dangerous for teh Island.
    we keep an eye on it of course, as you never know,
    but by now nothing out there looks any dangerous for the Island Hispañola.
    by now, all significant factors/conditions call for several more danger-free weeks ahead of us.
    the over all long range Outlook(of course with all it's known uncertanties) looks great for this season.
    Happy Travels to All

    In its weather report for Friday, 6 July, Onamet, the local weather service states: "This last system [Beryl] does not represent a danger for the Dominican Republic.

    Of course, as all weather people will tell you, and experience shows, any storm in our area needs to be closely followed.

    Regardless, this is the time to complete preparations for a strong hurricane. We are on the hurricane path of the Caribbean and this means that at any time the island could be hit by a big storm. It is best to always be prepared.

    Preparations include checking that what we have in place to protect our property is in working conditions. Just do a mental check and think if the storm would be coming tomorrow, what you would need to keep safe.

    And... always keep in mind to be always prepared for an earthquake. That means, among other preventions, simple things such as screwing armoires and shelving to the wall, so if the land shakes all that is inside doesn't fall out.

    Haiti in the cross-hairs again, but really too early to call what will happen.

    I do not understand as that there are postings in the last hours that state yes be concerned, and others that state no do not be concerned. Your graphic cone shows the RD right within this cyclonic event.
