What is the prediction for Maria?

Poor TCI (as well as so many other Caribbean islands and my beloved Mexico). Can someone keep us up to date on Maria? Thanks.

Hi, we arrived here at the Bavaro Princess Resort on Tuesday and the heavy winds and rain started early Wednesday. Last night was pretty amazing to watch how powerful this storm was. Considering it was 50 miles off shore, it still did some damage here. I watched from my terrace most of the evening as huge trees came crashing down. Fortunately minimal structural damage as most trees missed the buildings and the workers here have been excellent at clearing the pathways - the Police Department have just arrived to help with the clear up. Staff have all been very helpful and made the stay as comfortable as possible given the circumstances.

Light rain and winds now...hoping for some sunshine later in the week/next week.

If you want to see any footage, I pretty much vlogged the whole evening and then the aftermath this morning. You can go on to my facebook page and watch it here if you want...


Good luck on your travels wherever you go.

The Bavaro Princess Resort is in the DR....so not TCI.

Anyway....looks like the storm is passing about 50 miles east of Grand Turk which turns out to be great for the islands and especially Provo.

This will allow the islands to escape any major issues.

When I first read post 3, I caught myself wondering is there a new resort on Provo. Then I read tcimike's post.

Perhaps Maria blew them from the DR forum to the TC forum.

Who knows?

Have fun in DR.
