    Looks to be on the same path as Dean. The first projection you posted looks like it's headed right for Dangriga or central Belize....dead on.

    Yep, too far out to start boarding windows or canceling visits, but possible. Good luck.

    I remember years ago that Windjammer took their little ships to the southern Caribe in "hurricane season" - I was on the Poly during H.Debbi getting rained on everyday around St.Lucia. Have the trends changed in the last 10 years...?

    Well, here it comes now. Looks like Belize will get hit by a Cat3.

    I98 has also spun off of Africa ... Hurricane Gabrielle?

    Last nights news had it a Cat.1 hitting Belize, and it was still unnamed.

    Water temps are warm...
