    I know that AKR will move their boats to the south side. I am not overly concerned but I am aware of the possibility. Who knows, it might be more of an adventure than we had planned.

    Ernesto presenta vientos sostenidos de 85Km/h, los cuales se extienden hasta 95Kms hacia el Nororeste de su Centro, por lo que vientos de Tormenta Tropical son estimados a 2,705Kms de Popolnah, Comisaría de Tizimín.

    Followed by Florence.

    Even if he goes that way, he'll be gone by the 8th. Things will be back to normal by then surely.

    Watch Florence tho, in case she veers south.

    We decided to stay with Roatan, but taking ponchos and shoes for walking on muddy streets. Hopefully we can get a day or two of diving in. I did call the dive op. (thanks for the idea) and they said they will move to the south side if they need to.

    The bad news is he's shifted to come straight for you - subject to change.

    The good news is he's losing power. A Tropical Storm is just a blow out with flooding.
