Re: Cat 5 Maria Nearing the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico [Re: cieldumort]

NWS Radar in San Juan was taken out around 6:30 AM ET which is pretty close to the time of land fall on the other side of the island. A family member near San Juan is giving me reports. The conditions are severe at the moment. He is in a concrete structure and the winds are shaking it.

The eye of Maria shifted west over the middle of the island, now seems to be bringing the eyewall to ALL of Puerto rico. Comms are out in a lot of the areas, raindfall rates of 5-8 inches/hour. Wind, rain, and surge damage is widespread. It'll take a while to get a good idea exactly what happened.

Maria's eye is clearing out again, but the mountains of Puerto Rico did disrupt it, but did not destroy it, it's likely to restrengthen some (probably not to cat 5 again as it'll be going over the waters stirred up by Irma) It may get very close or the western side to the Turks and Caicos, but the NHC's track seems good. It's very likely to stay well east of Florida.

Puerto Rico was absolutely devistated though, and it's still raining in parts that flooded (and flooded well beyond record flood levels)

Last recon pass had Maria up to 962, which means its weakened a bit more, although it appears the windfield has expanded a lot. It'll be interesting to see how it unfolds from here.

Most recent recon pass is finding that Maria may be strengthening, with one minute averaged SFMR surface wind values running about 125 MPH, although pressures are still fairly steady to declining only slowly at this time.
