Based on the flight times below. It would appear that the Hurricane Hunters are probably on their way to St Croix, or will be shortly.
(edit: At least one plane was in St Croix yesterday afternoon. So they were waiting on CARCAH's decision to fly tomorrow~danielw)

Wow. Where is everyone? Got TD 16 transitioning on the navy site. I haven't checked in for a while, really thought the season was done. It looks like those warm SST's have one last gasp.
SFWMD now has it as TD-16 expect to issue at 11:00

I was thinking the same thing. I was expecting several pages of posts already, but no one seems to be paying attention.
FWIW I'm a little concered with the lack of predicablity for this storm, but it seems like it will turn, just a matter of how soon and how strong.
