The early maps showed the storm going to the west side of the island. This radar shows a direct hit. The road from Samana to Las Galeras and Playa Grande has finally been paved and is in perfect condition. I hope it is the same tomorrow morning.Yep, there are always crazy people who need to do a extra party/Teteo during harsh times, but i give a fu.ck on such stupids.
The harsh part of rain portions is over us tonight and tomorrow all will calm down.
Who thinks he needs to drive his car to somewhere under such aforehand predicted conditions in such area, well, you fu.cked yourself and i wish you that your car insurer does not pay a dime for it.
We finished our BD BBQ 30 minutes ago and timing been perfect, as since 10 minutes we have a constant soft rain on here.
Tonight will be rainy over most of DR territory, again, when living in the well known vulnerable areas, stay the heck at home, have fun with your wife or watch a movie and enjoy a good bottle of rum or two.
Who is out there and loosing anything while driving his chatarra through flooded streets, well, i will not move my dry home to go out and help you with anything.
Watching all those videos show me nothing else than very stupid people trying to be the big heroes driving through those conditions.
The reality, I see each of those only as a stupid mofo who does not deserve any better.
We had today, as awaited and forecasted, a day of strong rains flooding the well known flood prone areas.
This will stay on during tonight and the calm down tomorrow. By tomorrow afternoon most will be gone.

The Center of the "storm" which never became one, dissipated over SE Cuba a long time ago.The early maps showed the storm going to the west side of the island. This radar shows a direct hit. The road from Samana to Las Galeras and Playa Grande has finally been paved and is in perfect condition. I hope it is the same tomorrow morning.
That's how our tropical weather goes, sometimes very isolated areas involved.With that big, red blob right on top of PC in your post #545, it's hard to believe you didn't get much rain(?).
That happens a lot here in Cabarete. Just the other day it was raining fairly hard in town but just a mile and a half down the road it was bone dry. I didn't mean exactly where you are, but no hard rains reported anywhere in the PC/Bavaro area?That's how our tropical weather goes, sometimes very isolated areas involved.
My Entrance to the Finca is a 2 kilometers dirt track.
Sometimes I leave the Finca to get something right there at the main road i the lil Village, leave the Finca with the solar Pump running, all nice sunny and completely dry, but hitting the Mainroad it is full wet and rain coming down there or vice versa.
