Problem is, the winds are strongest to the north of the center, not necessarily in the center. The more south it goes, the more wind and rain we will get.

Probably the worst will be when we're in that NW quadrant as winds from the open sea slam into the mountains.

NWS San Juan reports on what is happening in San Juan, Puerto Rico as of Jul 29 10:45AM: "Showers are affecting the islands with moderate rainfall and gusty winds. The frequency of the showers will increase as the day progresses."

Here in Santo Domingo there are gusty winds. Santo Domingo is not on the present track for a hard hit by the tropical storm.

We are in the neighborhood, so all preparations should have been completed to prepare for a storm. The experience living in this country is that storms can change their mind.

Every year come June is the time to get prepared for any storm. It comes with living in the Caribbean.

Correct. Attached a screenshot from windy.com, the reddish area shows the part with highest wind speeds, so it's quite a bit north from the core. The reddish part looks to be coming close to NC at the moment...

Interesting regional perspectives.
Currently here in Bayahibe, it is partly cloudy, with a slight breeze. Nothing equating to windy conditions, and actually a bit less than what is considered to be normal. Perhaps the calm before the storm?

In regards to rainfall amounts NHC above is calling for.......

"Across the Dominican Republic, northern Haiti, and Turks and Caicos:
3 to 6 inches, with isolated maximum totals of 8 inches."

CycloforumsPR forecasts on Twitter there will be flooding today in the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and the DR. By Thursday, storm conditions will be felt in the East of the DR and in the evening in the rest of the island, including Haiti. The size of the storm has it swallowing the island of Hispaniola as it moves West with a slight northern inclination. Lots of rain, gusty winds and flooding are forecast.

It says the good news is that the US Hurricane Hunter crews report the storm has not consolidated. Bottom line, so far most of the rain will be felt late this evening and through the early morning and morning of Thursday. Local weather forecasters say the entire country should prepare for the storm.

MODS: Can I suggest that when a hurricane is coming, you ask people to keep their posts "noise free", ie. no chat or jokes, just posts that people need to know relating to the hurricane. I think this has been the case in previous years. Plenty of other forums on DR1 where people can joke IMO.

Caucedo is next to Boca Chica, so it looks like the majority of Santo Domingo is on the green.
