    Maria was expected to hit the U.S. Virgin Islands by Tuesday afternoon and Puerto Rico late Tuesday into early Wednesday, with conditions appearing favorable for "additional rapid strengthening for the next 24 hours and possibly longer."

    President Trump declared states of emergency in Puerto Rico and in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where Gov. Kenneth Mapp suspended all Irma recovery efforts to shift the focus to preparing for Maria.

    The Coast Guard said it was moving personnel, cutters and aircraft in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico to protect them from Maria and to position them for quick search-and-rescue missions.

    Windy.com can give a basic forecast:

    Looks like Jose pushes Maria out to sea after it leaves the Bahamas? I can't believe Jose will still be hanging around the Northeast until late this weekend.

    Oh MaryG12, anyone could easily understand why you feel that way! You've just got your power back on after a long, long week.

    You're hearing that song in your head.

    I'm hearing this one, 'My Maria​' by Brooks & Dunn...

    I don't think though she is going to be the 'sunlight when the skies are gray.'

    This is really devastating and 3 series of hurricanes keep coming into different places. I hope people are getting ready for it and not take this lightly. I also suggest checking out your water restoration if possible for floods will be first cautionary.

    I'm really speechless.

    I have to say that when I was watching Windy during Irma I looked at Jose long range and it had Jose come up the same path as it is now. I am a fan now of Windy. I don't doubt Windy's forecast with Jose and Maria merging.

    I'm hearing "How do You Solve a Problem Like Maria" From The Sound of Music.

    How do you solve a problem like Maria?
    How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?

    How do you find the word that means Maria?
    A flibbertijibbet! A will-o'-the wisp! A clown!

    Many a thing you know you'd like to tell her
    Many a thing she ought to understand
    But how do you make her stay and listen to all you say
    How do you keep a wave upon the sand?

    Oh, how do you solve a problem like Maria?
    How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?


    When I'm with her I'm confused, out of focus and bemused
    And I never know exactly where I am

    Unpredictable as weather, she's as flighty as a feather
    She's a darling! She's a demon! She's a lamb!

    She'd out pester any pest, drive a hornet from its nest
    She could throw a whirling dervish out of whirl

    She is gentle! She is wild! She's a riddle! She's a child!
    She's a headache! She's an angel! She's a girl!


    Relevant lines BBM. Although I really hope she doesn't stay and keep the waves upon the sand!

    Dominica to suffer direct hit tonight.

    I've been there. Its a lovely island. Reminded me of the island they used in the King Kong movie with Jessica Lange. Its mountainous and gives an alure of the jungle. Can't imagine what it will look like tomorrow.... Sad

    sad is putting it rather mildly ... I am terrified for our WS friend, Archangel. Prayers and a glimmer of hope.

    Category 5 Maria Threatens Catastrophic Damage in the Caribbean
    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/weather...ibbean-n802511

    "Maria blew up from a tropical storm into a major Category 5 hurricane in barely more than a day, bearing down on Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands with catastrophic winds so strong that some areas could be uninhabitable for months, forecasters warned Monday night."

    From the Guardian. OMG

    Hurricane Maria: Dominica 'brutalised' by new category five storm – live: https://www.theguardian.com/world/li...orm-live#img-1

    From the story:

    "The prime minister of Dominica has used Facebook to describe in harrowing detail – and in real time – his own rescue from the destruction of Hurricane Maria.

    "The category five storm passed directly over the island nation of Dominica on Monday night local time. Amid gusts of wind up to 260kmh (160mph) the country’s long-serving leader, Roosevelt Skerrit, rode out the storm from his home.

    “The winds are merciless!” wrote 45-year-old Skerrit on Facebook. “We shall survive by the grace of God!”

    From the Guardian link above:

    "And it is not yet over warns the Trinidad and Tobago weather centre, which says the outer bands of Hurricane Maria will continue to move over the island overnight, 'exacerbating the devastating flooding situation'"

    From The NY Times:

    “None of this is unusual in terms of the number; we are in the peak week of the peak month in what was forecast to be an active season,” said Dennis Feltgen, an agency spokesman. “What is horrific is the succession of Category 4 Harvey, Category 4 and 5 Irma and now” Category 5 Maria.

    "A typical season has 12 named storms, six of which become hurricanes, with three of those becoming major hurricanes. So far this season, which is more than halfway through, there have been 13 named storms, including seven hurricanes, four which have been major."
