Late night update for the early risers. Home now and watching Category 5 Hurricane Maria make her move on Puerto Rico. St. Croix getting slammed now, bulk of extreme winds sliding close by. We will know in the morning just what really happened. Every jog it takes can be the difference between destruction and devastation and yes there is a difference.

Eye passed just to the South of St. Croix.
A matter of degrees.

People are up watching images.
Loops and Tweets.

Another image of how close the eye came.
Highest winds they had?
Will know more later in the day.

Emergency tweets pleading for help...
.. mixed with analytical discussion.

The devil is in the details.
The drama, death and miracles in the details.

Below is an image of Jose and models.

So far the extreme winds of Jose.....
...spread out are off shore.

Not easy being the NHC.
And that brings up Lee.
Remember I said to watch him...
..he's coming back to life.

Lee needs to be watched.
It may redevelop.
Though it's not moving this way..

Maria is..
.. moving closer to our coast.

Out of respect for the island of Puerto Rico I'm not going to wax poetic on models and speculation for what Maria might do a week away. In the early morning hours as I write this, finally home in Raleigh, I'm watching information come in from the Puerto Rico and praying that as many people as possible were able to find shelter in cement buildings and hide from the wind and run from the water.  Today has been about double trouble in areas not that far from each other. An 7.1 Earthquake hit Mexico City on the anniversary of another earthquake; hours after a yearly earthquake drill held in it's memory to help save lives. Let's hope the drill in the morning helped many get through the 7.1 Quake later in the day. 

What are the chances.

Buildings tumbled down in Mexico.
Buildings are falling apart in PR.

A night we are all humbled... the power of Mother Nature.

In the daylight.
We will learn details.

I'll update after the 8 AM.
And good morning visibles.

Good night...

Stay safe...

Ps... And people are staying up tonight to watch the Euro model come in. People are waiting to see if this run continues a trend of Maria ending up closer to the East Coast that previous runs. The last Euro showed trouble down the road brought to you by Jose still hanging around interacting with Maria. Jose who is now breaking records for days being a hurricane. And, Maria who is making landfall with a lower pressure than Irma did when it had 175 mph winds. Wrap your head around that...
