Re: 185 MPH Severe Hurricane Irma Growing Closer and Larger


I am surprised as well, I thought the mountains of Hispaniola would disrupt the inflow from the south, but so far it has not.

Hispaniola (and mountainous islands in general) tend to not significantly disrupt tropical cyclones that do not pass mostly, let alone directly, over them. This is especially true of larger TCs and Irma is massive.
