Hi! I am new and hoping to get info for a trip we are taking Aug 8/28 to Eastern Caribbean. Any suggestions for how I can track the weather for hurricanes a little easier?

Thx!
Monica

Hi,
If you have internet access it is easy to check out the satellite and updates on the main page of hurricane.com.

You can also follow advisories via rss if you have an rss reader on your phone here: feed://www.hurricane.com/hurricane-advisories/feed/

Probably other things too, were you looking for something specific?

Where are you headed? I was in Tortola and St. Thomas at the end of July 2009 and had a great time.

Thank you! I do not have the ability to ck by phone, but I am using this post. Of course I am trying to learn how to get it on this website too.

I am heading to Bahamas, St Thomas and Virgin Islands Puerto Rio...... We leave on the cruise 8/28 and it lasts a week.

Thx again,
M

Sounds fun!
Many ships also have an internet plan - e.g. you can get 90 minutes or 500 minutes of internet time to use during the week for a certain amount of money. Some just have a computer area, others allow wifi access. So that is an option also.

Hi Monica,
I saw there is a tropical wave in back of Bill but it is still close to the African coast, so that should not be a problem for you. I'm up in New York and am concerned about Bill because the tracks I have seen show it going to Cape Cod, Long Island or out to sea. Since they estimate it will be a MAJOR hurricane by Wednesday, we are all a little concerned.

What do you think hurricane admin? do you think it will go out to sea or come here?

Hi!
The odds are that it will go out to sea. ;-) If it were me (I'm in Florida), I'd do a few things that are beneficial anyway - if I had any branches needing trimming do that, maybe get some extra water etc which you can always use later. Since it is so uncertain though there isn't much extra to do - it seems about 7-10 days away from Cape Cod so that gives plenty of time to watch the projected path.

I agree that as of now it looks fine in the Eastern Caribbean for the next little while. A week out, hard to tell for sure.

Actually I read something recently that said that El Nino is providing enough wind shear that any storms that have formed are effected by that; however, the last two weeks of October that cycle of wind shear will lessen so any storms that form would have more potential or surviving.

It will be interesting to see if that occurs. The 2009 season certainly has been a quiet season - not that those of us in the hurricane impacted areas complain about quiet seasons! (Of course the Philippines has been having a lot of activity the last 10 days.

I have not tried the panels, but Miami-Dade County in Florida does testing. I am reasonably comfortable with their process. The problem is that looking at the vusafe.com website, I don't see that they have been Miami-Dade (or Florida for that matter) tested. Without that I am always a bit reluctant to trust the testing.

After Andrew Miami-Dade really beefed up its standards and the panels we used in Key Largo were Miami-Dade approved.

If the only comparison is to plywood, then I am sure they are preferable - they look easier to install and are no doubt more reliable in comparison to plywood.
