Hurricane Maria update

Currently a Category 5, it is predicted to weaken to a strong Category 4 before passing over or near St. Croix (a U.S. Virgin Island) and Puerto Rico. Most likely storm track has shifted northeast, which brings it closer to the San Juan metropolitan area, the most populated area of PR. This will not be good for PR. The last time a Category 4 hurricane made landfall in PR was the San Ciprian hurricane of 1932.

You can virtually visit PR using Google Street View. It looks very rundown, but thankfully nearly all of the buildings there are made from concrete and not wood.

  2. The eye wall of Irma hit St Thomas and St John in the US Virgin Islands but St Croix, which is further South, was not that badly damaged. The current forecast is that the Maria will pass about 10 miles South of St Croix which means it will get hit by the northern eye wall of Maria. Maria is expected to knock out power on St Croix this afternoon and the governor has warned that it may be months before power is back on.
