Trying to get a boat together to move back to the Virgin Islands. My mooring tackle, in Elephant Bay, would be holding a boat if I were more organized. What a mess this IRMA, with JOSE hot on her panties is going to be. Cat 5, sustained winds reaching 180mph, will be about 25 miles N of St. Thomas at 6 PM tomorrow night (wednesday). This one is the biggest, cleanest, most devastating monster I've seen. My phone keeps dinging with texts from the DR, PR, V.I. and Vieques. They're all very, very concerned.

Barbuda just got smoked by Cat 5, Anguilla, SXM and St. Barth's are dead in the path. Anegada will get devastated. Tortola, STJ and STT next. Crap.

Irma was a gigantic tornado - 185 mph winds - leaving almost complete devastation to parts of the Caribbean.

We in Central and North Florida feel very lucky the way the storm track moved Easterly away from the Coast and lost energy over land. At one point, we were expecting a CAT 3 here in Tampa and instead it was barely a 1. There are still many without power - we're 4 blocks from the Bay near downtown and never lost power. Just after the storm, news reports were that 1.1 million in Tampa Bay and 44% of the State were without power.

The images of acres of muddy bottom land as Northerly winds pushed all the water out of Hillsborough Bay in Tampa was the opposite of what we were expecting. They had predicted up to 8' to 10' storm surge in downtown a few days earlier. The Keys and S. Florida bore the brunt of the damage...
