    You sound as set up as possible.......good luck.

    I know what you mean about steep mountains. Japan is very advanced in protection against this sort of stuff, (and earthquakes), but the mountains are really steep. When there are deaths here it's often through slips. A big typhoon will normally cut quite a few roads at least, but it's possible to get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time as well. There's a big one heading for Tokyo right now actually, although they're on flat ground so it shouldn't be a problem over there.

    Let's hope the damage isn't too bad down your way. Keep us posted.

    acutally the other one probably should have been deleted, or been renamed "I92: the tropical wave that fizzled" or something...

    anyway, from wunder blog today:

    Looking at the projected paths it is clear it will hit land long before it gets to the Bay islands. That always slow them down and it is already gone down to a cat4, so it looks like that info as well as that previously posted, it sounds like it might just fall into a tropical depresion and spare a bunch of folks, a bunch of grief. Wet for sure, but spared from the wicked winds. I am hoping at least that it will happen this way. Good luck to all of those in it's path, where ever it wanders.

    Yeah, it looks like the Mayan populations of the Miskito Islands, Corn Islands, and the Cape Delta are going to take the brunt force. They probly do not have contact with the outside world, but then probly have their own ways of knowing. Hope they have ways to survive the flood and winds.

    Funny that there is not so much interest in this storm than the one that went through all the big name locations, not a troll, but simply an observation.

    Yeah, I guess it's just "not as close to home" since very few of us here know anyone or anything about where it is now. Looks like it's probly gonna break up and dump itself...

    yeah. good, that it hit a relatively unpopulated area. bad, that the people it did hit probably don't have a lot of resources to rebuild...

    Not many people dive around the Corn islands, or the east coast of Honduras Nicaragua etc....too hard to get too....

    Well, this is a diving board and there aren't many dive destinations in Nicaragua. It's true though...and perhaps selfish or just survival....once we knew it wasn't going to hit here, it's a big relief and you put it behind you and move on.
