Hard to believe that when we talk about this season's strongest storm se won't be talking about Irma!

Reports out of Puerto Rico...

Quote
San Juan, Puerto Rico (CNN)Hurricane Maria pummeled Puerto Rico on Wednesday morning, ripping trees out of the ground and hammering two-thirds of the island with hurricane-force winds.

"This is total devastation," said Carlos Mercader, a spokesman for Puerto Rico's governor. "Puerto Rico, in terms of the infrastructure, will not be the same. ... This is something of historic proportions."

What GFS are you looking at lol?



When the GFS, almost all its ensembles, the euro and almost all its ensembles show no US hit while the CMC does...

That being said let's hope for a fish storm.

Isn't it also supposed to weaken a lot? So even if it hits land it wont be to strong.

Puerto Rico is apparently in pretty bad shape. Reports are that power could be out for several months. In addition to the destruction from the winds, heavy rains have continued to batter the island even after the eye has moved well off shore, exasperating the situation with severe flooding.

Mother Nature has not been happy! So much devastation this summer! Hopefully fall will be calmer! Prayers for all who have been effected! :-\

In a telephone interview from San Juan with CNBC on Thursday, Rep. Jenniffer Gonzalez-Colon provided a first-hand account of the devastation from Hurricane Maria.

"This is not the same island," the Republican congresswoman told "Squawk Box." "There are no trees. There are no palm trees."

"Most of the houses lost part of the windows [and] doors," she added. "People with wooden houses, of course, didn't resist it this type of environment like never before."

Less than two weeks after getting sideswiped by Hurricane Irma, Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico Wednesday as a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 155 mph.

Complete tragedy in Puerto Rico thanks to Maria, and now a dam is failing and thousands having to evacuate and get to higher ground.  After Irma and Maria, many of the Caribbean islands will not be the same--at least for a generation or two.

I follow sewxalerts on Facebook and they've been saying for a couple of days now that they see a continuing westward shift to Maria and are concerned about a direct hit to the outer banks of NC.  I'm not seeing any discussion of this anywhere else, but the site is usually pretty reliable.  Has anybody seen other sources talking about this possibility?

The outer cone of uncertainty for the extended does include the Outer Banks, but the best guess forecast is still off shore. But, I would say E NC is within the realm of possibility if some model ensembles are trending that way.

Not to stray from the topic, but there's another storm developing at 30N & 50W. Would this help weaken Maria?
