    This does not look good for either the Bay Islands or Belize.

    Looks like the folks in Roatan will be seeing Felix sometime Tuesday or Wednesday.

    Just checked the beach cam at CocoView Resort. So far, so good. But, I'm sure we will see conditions change as we approach Tuesday.

    CoCo View will be preparing to evacuate on Tues if need be....they are on the leeward side of the island so hopefully they will be spared the most damaging winds....AKR on the other hand will feel the brunt of the storm....

    Since Lamont's thread was about Invest 92 which failed to become a threat, I started a new one on the real Felix, but I see that the two have been joined. Thanks! I Mod a little on a tiny V-board, and have never joined two threads - looks tricky.

    Cozumel looks like it's not in harms way, as this is headed for landfall similar to Dean's - subject to change...?!

    This looks very bad, folks. Potential big time killer, this one.

    This is not looking to be a good hurricane season for all my favorite dive destinations.

    The multi path projection kind of gives the impression that no one really has a clue where this is headed.

    Thanks amigo. I've tied my boat down under my house to all the cement posts, boarded up the windows and plan to ride it out. I'm far enough back from the sea and high enough that the surge won't get me. The house is solid cement and 10 feet off the ground. The adrenaline is pumping though....ya man.
    I'm more worried about Honduras. There's a lot of steep mountains on that north coast and the landslide and flooding could be bad. God help them.
