It's likely to be bad. But not really bad.
www.nhc.noaa.gov...


How the hell can a cat 5 hurricane not be considered really bad?

Sorry, I was meaning for Puerto Rico.
I am looking at this:
www.nhc.noaa.gov...

And should have said "maybe."

Gotcha. Either way its fixing to be a very costly year, both in lives lost and local economies.

Lots of concrete homes with flat roofs in Puerto Rico but the power grid has been severely under maintained due to fiscal problems. Maria is tracking too far south and will have too large a wind field for them to recover without international aid.

PR only had 4 category 5 Hurricanes in recorded History that goes back to the 1800s.

The weather channel changed their record on PR hurricanes hit with the right information this time.

The last big Hurricane was Hugo.

My brother is ready they expect the sea to bring 9 feet of water in land in his area.

He is ok he lives in a hill facing the sea.

Yes you are right, my brother said that is too much politics to get anything done with the state of affairs right now.

It took years to recover after Hugo, this time is going to be worst with only one power plant supplying the entire Island with power.

I can see PR filling for bankruptcy for sure.

This is likely to spur some debate about the Paris climate change agreement.



Under pressure from the rich nations, the preamble of the Paris Agreement says the loss and damage mechanism “does not involve or provide a basis for any liability or compensation”.

i live in puerto rico island, irma was stipulated to hit our island and it took an incredible turn and headed northwest to florida. It was supposed to ht us %100 and it only gave us a tropical depression. Maria is apparently going right in the middle of our island an dim just hoping it doesnt wipe us out of the map like irma did to barbudas;

John Kerry is already making news on his clima change this will play well on all those that had invested millions on Clima change scams as usual because somebody needs to make money out of the misery of others and they don't have an inch of compassion they are all driven by profit makings.

Shameful.

The Prime Minister of Dominica is posting about Maria hitting now. He has reportedly been rescued but I can only imagine what people there are going through based on his posts. Wow.

Thanks for sharing that. I hope everyone in Dominica is in a safe location right now. Since they get so many hurricanes, there should be no shortage of shelters there.

This morning it was only predicted to reach category 4....yet now Maria is a Cat-5 in intensity. Looks like the weather prediction models need updating to take into account global warming, eh?

The weather is intensifying around the globe for sure.

Lee was a hurricane that came off the African coast last week. It has died in the eastern atlantic way out there.
Katia went over the Yucatan peninsula as I think a cat one. That was while Irma was wrecking Florida.

I think we've now passed the PEAK of the Hurricane season. Unless something has changed with the air/ocean currents and temps, we should see a reduced number of tropical depressions...and more of them acting like LEE did.
