+1 on this, especially the margin for error inherent in these models! The higher wind and surge zone is on the "right" side, which is a bad place to be - at least in this hemisphere.

So one person we know is safe. I hope the rest are OK down there. It could be a long night for some...

Re: Watch out for Patricia

Fingers crossed for Solitary Bird.

I can't imagine what havoc such winds and storm surge might wreak upon a marina packed full of boats. . . . Lines snapping, pilings underwater, hulls rolling, etc.

No real news on wind or storm surge damage as yet.

Looking for another pretty place to work on the boat.

Re: Watch out for Patricia

german news only has the relief message and that it was less bad than anticipated for beeing the strongest Hurricane ever recorded.

Zeehag, if there is enough infrastructure to get online, let us know how you fared.

You've been in our thoughts and prayers.

Re: Watch out for Patricia

Zee saw Solitary Bird afloat and marina looking okay. Guessing Barra saw more like cat one mostly for wind. narrow radius of highest winds plus terrain likely made a big difference.
