    Since our power never went off we still have all of ours ready to go. I just hate it though for those who have already suffered so much from hurricanes this year. So many are still trying to recover and are still traumatized by Irma and Harvey.
    Thanks for asking. I lost power for about 48 hours, which was miserable. I wasn't in an area of extensive flooding, but the road a block down was underwater. I don't know how much rain I got but I had measured 12 inches from the nor'easter before Irma arrived.

    My screened-in porch flooded and I was worried it would get in the house, but it didn't. Have a couple of trees down, but they only damaged the privacy fence.

    Over all, I was extremely lucky! So many thousands of people are still suffering...

    Maria's forecast track through the islands has only changed slightly. Expecting rapid intensification on Tuesday.

    Eastern US coast should continue to watch and be prepared. No consistency in the models concerning US landfall. Jose may have a significant impact on Maria's path.

    Reminder: we have been at this same spot with the Irma forecast. Instead of going up the East coast, she decided to do her own thing. Hoping Maria follows Jose out to sea.

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-maria-hurricane-caribbean-20170917-story.html

    The islands of the eastern Caribbean prepared Sunday to face another potential disaster, with forecasters saying newly formed and likely to strengthen Hurricane Maria was headed for a hit on the Leeward Islands by Monday night.


    Hurricane or tropical storm warnings were posted for many of the islands already coping with the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma, including St. Barts and Antigua and Barbuda.


    The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Maria was expected to gain power and could be near major hurricane strength while crossing through the Leeward Islands late Monday on a path aiming toward Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
    The storm had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph late Sunday afternoon. It was centered about 275 miles east-southeast of Dominica and heading west-northwest at 15 mph.


    The hurricane center said hurricane conditions should begin to affect parts of the Leeward Islands by Monday night, with storm surge raising water levels by 4 to 6 feet near the storm's center. The storm was predicted to bring 6 to 12 inches of rain across the islands, with more in isolated areas.


    It could make a direct hit on Puerto Rico, which was spared the full brunt of Irma, though power was knocked out to much of the island.

    Thank you.

    Well I really should have said Mt. Pleasant to be specific but they always just say Charleston because a lot of people don't recognize MP as well as they do Charleston.

    I just hope both Jose and Maria doesn't come close to the east coast but I am afraid Maria will.

    So many already have been hit in the recent years by strong hurricanes and have to be so tense when closely watching the paths of these hurricanes.

    After work everyday this week my hubby has come in and has been working on all the huge limbs that were down. There was many more than we first thought. He worked on it yesterday from 6:30 to 6 in the evening so most of it has been cleared by now. He went and help a close friend of ours last Monday who had a huge oak tree fall close to their home. It must have been at least 300 years old ...it was massive in height and girth.

    Our landline didn't come back up until the tele tech came out and they couldn't even get to it until this past Thursday. We told them we didn't mind waiting because we both have cell phones.

    The insurance adjuster came out about our gazebo roof and hubby and friends will erect a new roof. It was wood and shingles before the storm and he is going to put an insulated dark gray metal roof on it this time.

    Do we still have any posters who haven't posted since the hurricanes?

    Hurricane Maria will strike the Leeward Islands later Monday, then will intensify and take aim on the storm-weary Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, and other parts of the northeast Caribbean still recovering from a devastating hit from Hurricane Irma less than two weeks ago.

    Maria is currently located about 85 miles east of Martinique and is moving west-northwest at 10 to 15 mph.



    A hurricane warning is now in effect for Guadeloupe, Dominica, St. Kitts, Nevis, Montserrat, Martinique and St. Lucia. A tropical storm warning has been issued for Antigua and Barbuda, St. Maarten Saba and St. Eustatius.

    Hurricane watches have been extended to include Puerto Rico, Vieques and Culebra, and remain in effect for the U.S. Virgin Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy and Anguilla.

    Tropical storm watches have been posted for Barbados, St. Vincent and the Grenadines.



    Maria is gaining strength and will likely become a major hurricane (Category 3 or stronger) soon as it passes through the northeast Caribbean Islands due to a combination of low wind shear, a moist atmosphere and warm ocean temperatures.

    The NHC 5 a.m. Monday forecast discussion noted "considerable lightning occurring" in the convection near the center, a sign of the potential for rapid intensification.



    Whether Maria will ever pose an East Coast threat will depend on steering currents in the upper atmosphere over the western Atlantic Ocean and the eastern United States that cannot be pinned down more than a week in advance.

    Interestingly, the potential for Jose to stall off the Northeast coast this weekend could play some role in determining Maria's long-term future path.

    Also, if Maria interacts with the higher terrain of Puerto Rico and/or Hispaņola, that could also affect its future track and intensity.

    If Maria would strike the U.S., and again, that is not by any means a certainty, that would not happen until early next week.

    For now, all residents along the East Coast and Gulf Coast should monitor the progress of Maria.

    Maria is expected to have 140 mph winds as she approaches Puerto Rico. 12-18 inches of water are also expected over the island.
    Its still too early to tell where she might go.
    EURO and GFS predict it will follow Jose out to sea.
    Canadians see a path more like Matthew....skirt the Florida coast and landfall Charleston, SC.
    Too early to tell...not packing my bags yet.

    You have an amazing DH, OBE. That is a lot of work done in a relatively short span of time. I am glad for you to get everything back together so quickly. sigh... hearing about losing such an old tree (300 years ... imagine the stories that tree had) sort of hurts a bit. Now is time for a rebirth of nature's glorious wonders. Wishing the storms away .... though not all that successful, am I?


    The only member I haven't seen an update from is KindredSpirit. I do hope she is doing all right.

    I live further from the coast than your daughter....Goose Creek. About 40 minutes from her. I'm at the backside of the evacuation zone. We stayed for Matthew. But packing my bags for cat3 or higher.

    Didn't realize you had so many limbs and trees down in your area. We had that for Matthew. The metal roof should hold up better and look really good.

    Spellbound has a list on the Irma thread...I think we are still waiting on a few more.

    Oh Henry...., I sure hope you don't have to pack your bags and leave us for any time. you have been such a help here. be well, be prepared, and do what you must.

    I am concerned about our Puerto Rico friend here .... think about Archangel every day now. Grateful to have this place to keep track of what is happening.

    Thanks a ton Spell- I worry for our Puerto Rican friend too. Not a good situation.

    A positive thing....the GFS and Canadian models shifted the eye North of the islands. So a slight jog one way or the other can help tremendously.

    Hurricane Maria Takes Aim at Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands
    by Tim Stelloh, Jason Cumming and Rachel Elbaum

    A hurricane watch was issued for Puerto Rico early Monday as Maria left residents of Irma-battered Caribbean islands racing to prepare for yet another potentially powerful storm.

    Maria was about 85 miles east of Martinique at 8 a.m. ET, according to the National Hurricane Center. It had maximum sustained winds of 110 mph and could develop into a major hurricane by Monday night or early Tuesday, it added...
