It's unfortunate that for the third time within 30 days, we have a thread on a hurricane.  

Hurricane Irma caused damage in Puerto Rico, but the island was spared a direct hit.  However, the center of hurricane Maria is on track to smash into Puerto Rico as a category 4 or 5 tomorrow (Wednesday).  The damage is expected to be catastrophic.  Let's keep our TSN friends in Puerto Rico in our thoughts and prayers.

As I type this, the north wall of the eye of Maria is directly over Carolina (eastern edge of San Juan), Puerto Rico, with 145 mph wind shear. Carolina is where our friend Carlos “PePe” Peña resides. PePe loves his boat, which one must assume will be a total loss; I just hope that Pepe found a safe refuge to ride out the storm.

Its just past 9:00 a.m. EDT, and I'm watching the hurricane pummeling the island on The Weather Channel.  It's frightening.  The damage could be horrific.

Prayers up for all my friends on St. Croix USVI. They got a direct hit from Maria, just like Hugo when I lived there. I hope no lives were lost. The damage will be massive. And, as typical, there are not enough people there for the media to provide adequate coverage.

Preliminary reports  are quite troubling.  It's an island of 3.5 million people, and the entire population may have lost power.  Damage appears to be, as expected, catastrophic.  Torrential rains continue through tomorrow, with a risk even more flooding beyond what is occurring already.
