When you hear the wind and all you can do is sit and wait, is not a nice feeling. Please guys in the way, do everything possible to stay safe.

Dominica images today and the system is 100s of miles away...
This will hit Antigua and Barbuda (especially) very hard.

long night and next 24hr for N. Leewards.

Official now what I posted earlier:

I truly hope this hurricane suddenly changes course, misses land completely, and there is minimal damage.

Hoping and praying for the best possible outcome. Thoughts and prayers are with anyone in the path of this system

Dominica will get rain and wave swell, but is out of the path.

The following will get hit the hardest: Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda Virgin Islands
Note: Barbuda will be a DIRECT HIT so too Anguilla

St. Kitts and Nevis will suffer heavy winds and rains but will be spared a direct hit.

Please inform any parties in the path to FILL the tub with fresh water, keep a few ounces of chlorine nearby. Store long term medications and personal documents in ziplock bags.

Keep a "life pack" of basic (tin) foods and supplies + meds + docs + dry clothes in a single grab and go backpack.

I know but dat storm surge will do major damage to key installations in Dominica.

St. Maarteen and Anegada will also get direct or near direct hits. And dere isn't a hill in sight in Anegada. I can only hope for the best for them

Damn stay safe bros.

Bret just gave us a 'lil' 40mph winds in Trinidad and that was extremely terrifying for most of us who felt it.

I am looking at Irma's eye on Google Earth with the weather overlay on. A sight to behold but oh so dangerous. A large circular eye and the pressure dropping again.

pressure dropping again
Yup!
The single most important indicator in storm strength is the decrease in pressure. less is worse.

Unbelievable organization and eye-wall structure.

Devastation over the next 24 onward

Irma is now joint second with Wilma (2005), Gilbert - 1988 and a 1935 storm and only behind Allen's 190 mph (1980) but is probably the first to attain such speed so early in its formation
