I'm in TCI and no choice but to batten down..which I've been doing. Almost impossible to get flights now. Once we get through this...I will pull the trigger on getting my family off-island earlier I tell you. This place is not Grenada.....we're flat as a pancake. Didn't have to deal with flooding back home.

'Hurricane Irma has been upgraded to a category five - the highest category - making it "extremely dangerous" as it crosses the Caribbean. It has sustained winds of up to 280km/h (175mph), the US National Hurricane Center (NHC) said, advising islands in its path to speed up preparations. It is projected to bring storm surges, life-threatening winds and torrential rainfall to the Leeward Islands....Irma, which has been moving at a speed of 22km/h (14mph), is set to reach the Leeward Islands, east of Puerto Rico, within the next 24 hours, the centre added. It issued a hurricane warning for the following islands: Antigua, Barbuda, Anguilla, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis; Saba, St Eustatius and Sint Maarten; Saint Martin and Saint Barthelemy; The British Virgin Islands; The US Virgin Islands; Puerto Rico, Vieques and Culebra.'

Max Winds reported @ 185MPH strongest on record for N. Leewards for sure.

Losses will be catastrophic

About to check maritime buoys near Atlantic to get better assessment. Will report shortly....
