Take an umbrella.
« on: July 28, 2020, 11:42:20 AM »
On a Facebook group, made me laugh... “Are the same people posting shit about Covid gonna post about hurricanes?”

I guess so.

North coast has yet to be directly hit by a hurricane and it won’t happen this time either, but... This likely will be a tropical storm as it passes Hispanola and will probably bring some much needed rain.

If 2020 and the "chicken little" types have shown us...If you can go, Go! The following weeks are not promised.
...I'm usually wrong...but that sh!t was great!

There will be a little rain!

An unexpected tropical wave can sometimes dump more rain than a named storm. I would not change plans for this.

I wouldn't let the hurricanes stop you from planning a trip to Sosua

I have been through 2 hurricanes there and neither were a direct hit but one did shut down the POP airport for a few days due to the storm and flooding.

It's really early in the year to be seeing this many storms blowing through.

The north coast rarely gets a direct hit but with how 2020 is panning out perhaps this is the year

I flew into STI the day Maria hit Puerto Rico, September 2017. It freaked the chicas out in Puerto Plata to have the PR devastation footage on repeat, but in Puerto Plata it later amounted to some flooding and hunkering down for a night. If would have taken extra cash just in case, but my thought at the time was that if the flight was going, I was going. And I did, and I had a fantastic trip.

Alot of rain in Sosua is not the ideal trip especially with the curfew and covid, I have been there when they have had off and on down pours, puts a damper on the partying.

So the rain is coming down pretty good.

Today at 5:00pm was the first time that the reporting has suggested that the storm will strengthen to a hurricane by the weekend.

South Florida just announced a storm warning.

Good thing you brought an umbrella for this week, you will need it when you head home.

Heavy rain and flooding in Puerto Rico early this morning but subsided by about 1pm. Winds were that bad. Sosua is getting hit now. Not hearing from expat buddies so I assume power and internet are out. By tomorrow they will be fine. We probably have a bad hurricane season in the Caribbean
