Are those Tin Roofs? Last time PR got hit with Cat 4 was 1932. Let me guess, for past 80 yrs they didn't think it would happen again so no codes were enforced?

Those Palms sure can take a beating but poor things never seen such strong winds in their lifetime. Which ever survived should be stronger now.

Maria finally pushing offshore after spending the day over Puerto Rico.

Atlantic - Maria forms Sept 16, 2017-img_2274.gif



Cone map brings Maria uncomfortably close to the US coast as a steadily weakening hurricane but most models keep it offshore and out to sea.

Maria, Maria... where will you go.







What's funny is, there's been other years where we've had consistent Atlantic blocking like we have this summer/Fall... but so happens it's happening now with these developed mature hurricanes and there's increased risk for landfalls.


Timing. Timing. Timing of weather patterns and extreme events. Reinforces my passion for weather when you realize this.

Didn't someone post that Maria was a tiny, strong storm?

Yahoo/GMA article describes it as being 450 miles wide. Isn't that bigger than Irma?

Incredible. It couldnt have hit the island more squarely.

Nice map. Thanks for all your posts!

So radar is down but given how humid it is with Maria pulling away there are for sure rain bands continuing to whip in from the south now.

1 river is 20 feet above record stage. 42 foot high when normal I think is like 10. Cant imagine whats going on there.

7 hours of Maria in San Juan

Tidal station on West Coast of PR recorded peak gusts of over 70 knots about 2 hours ago and then stopped all transmission.

Tidal station in San Juan lost wind indicator early.

However pressure survived whole time. Current reading is 999 and lowest was 976.

Still no new data from Airport. They stopped transmitting very early.
