I haven't been to DA since...but I have a couple Dominican colleagues. I think they have mostly recovered as far as I have heard. Commie could chime in.

Believe it or not Puerto Rico has one of the most fragile electric grids in the region ..when you consider the number of customers they serve.

Sitting here in T&C waiting to see what Fiona throws our way. Most models suggest a glancing blow as a Cat 1...but who knows. I have prepped for worse at home and work.

Yeah. The not so horrible news is that she's projected to pass slightly East of us. Which means we avoid the dreaded North East quadrant. Bermuda may not be so lucky in the days to come though.

Never forget Trump gave his cronies Puerto Rico to buyout and mess up. The chickens are coming home to roost

This should give you an idea of the winds you are likely to experience. You may avoid some of the rain. However she may take a more northerly path.

Nice link.
Still hunkering down here. Pockets of power outages...but very not much major infrastructural damage thus far. Keeping fingers and toes crossed.

Indeed. Thanks.
