Jime, fortunately for them, Irma mostly skirted the Bahamas and took it out on Cuba instead.
It looks like Irma was never there. Not a single palm frond missing. Amazing!
I mentioned Necker because I read a comment from you yesterday about Branson. Thank heavens for a sturdy wine-cellar.
Yes, Richard Branson updated his blog http://www.virgin.com/richard-branson/hurricane-irma It sounded terrible.
This morning I checked all the relevant cams I could find. Necker has been hit.
The calm before the storm?
No sign of a breeze. It's a beautiful day.

That reads awful. I mentioned to Trix earlier about it being category 5. The amounts of rain mentioned in the link are frightening. Makes me appreciate our boring weather.
Irma is shaping up to be among the largest category 5 Atlantic hurricanes on record. Very scary http://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/04/us/hurricane-irma.html
Hurricane Irma has actually made the UK news. I hope it's not as bad as they say.
The forecast is not looking good for the Bahamas, Caribbean and Florida at the moment http://weather.com/storms/hurricane/news/hurricane-irma-category-4-united-states-hurricane-warning-leeward-islands
Wish I was there right now! So need a vacay.
