Not sure if this is the appropriate place for this post, but ...

The island of Jamaica could take a direct hit from Hurricane Dean in less than 24 hours, according to the latest advisory from the National Hurricane Center. Dean is forecast to be close to Category 5 strength as it nears the island. There is a large Jamaican population in Broward County and throughout South Florida, and many of the Jamaicans here have relatives back home. I'm keeping them in my thoughts and prayers and hoping others do the same.

It will pass south of Jamaica. Unfortunately they will get plenty of damage. Hopefully they are taking this seriously.

If it goes a little north of its forcasted track and hits Kingston with the eye it will be a major disaster.

Go to Google Earth and check out Kingston. The international airport would be under water with a direct hit.

Doesn't have to be a direct hit - looks like Jamaica will be on the bad side of the storm - they could get as much damage as a direct hit. Not good either way.
