It is now 5:30am local time and outside does not look pretty. Even though the wind is calm the rain is pouring with thunder and lightning. Will try to keep you updated as long as I have electricity.

My best goes out to you and everybody in Jamaica. My parents called me two days ago when the hurricane passed my island (Curaçao) but luckily there was no real damage done to the island.

Where will Air Jamaica park its aircraft during the storm/hurricane? I assume they will send their aircraft elsewhere to neighbouring islands/ countries?

God speed JMISLANDMAN. Hope to see you again very soon.

I know for a fact as it was a posted in a previous post, that Air Jamaica is flying in or already flew in one of their A340's and some A320 and A321's into FLL.

Best Regards to Everyone in Jamaica! Stay Safe!

Hang in there JMIslandMan. Hope you come through safely.

I am also hoping to hear from my friend on Grand Cayman. He was trying to get a flight off the island. He started medical school there three weeks ago. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for him, and for everyone else in Ivan the Terrible's path.

While listening to liveatc from JFK, the ground controller and a BWIA pilot were having a brief talk about it over the radio, and the pilot said that Grenada had been set back 20 years.  Sad

Hope everything is alright in the Caribbean.

He's in Montego Bay, so he should be expecting the strongest part of the storm right outside of the eye.

Good luck! This one is nasty.

There are reports of near total destruction on the Cayman Islands, it's early days yet but apparently there are floating bodies everywhere  Sad Good luck to everybody and I wish those who have already been hit a quick recovery. It seems like Jamaica was 'lucky' in that Ivan deviated and the eye missed the Islands. It seems the Caymans weren't so lucky and neither will Cuba be. Plus the 'cane' is a category 5!

There is no power in Jamaica so that's why I guess JMISLANDMAN can't respond.
And Leviticus': nice info, thanks and I suggest that in the near future we call one 'Tjap'  Big thumbs up

While Ivan was pounding Jamaica, my thoughts were with the people there, but we were still offline due to Frances. (It's only been yesterday that we got ALL our utilities back.)

Now my thoughts are with all those people on the Caymans, Cuba and probably Yucatan as well.

Ivan does sound like a ferocious one indeed. Hope you make it through safely!

Scientists did predict a bad hurricane season 2004, and I fear Frances and Ivan weren't the last of these buggers.

Be safe!

Cayman Net News has reports of devastation but no deaths. My friend who was at school there evacuated back to the States, thank goodness. No idea when he'll get to go back.

Mitch was retired after the 1998 season, due to the devastation it caused in the Yucatan (especially Honduras.)

Nothing has happened to Florida yet with Ivan. In the meantime, Grenada, Jamaica, and Grand Cayman are devastated. Let's give some thought to them, please.

Well guys its good to be back. We lost power and water on Friday and it returned yesterday. My DSl has been down due to the damaged cables in Cayman. I survived this storm and I must say my heart goes out to those persons who were harshly affected. I did managed to feel what category 4 wind feels like and i also took some pictures which I am having problems uploading ( can anyone help).

And we all wonder why Louisianan's get such a bad rap. They'll be doing a lot of drinking when their city is under 20 feet of water. Regardless I wish everyone in NO the best of luck, hopefully you're on your way out of town.

Looking at Redngold's graphic, I'm ~in the D of day in the 8 PM Thursday label. Looks like we won't have band practice outside on Thursday.

I just wish that it wouldn't rain at the game on Saturday. It's alumni band weekend--250 alumni in their band plus 200 high school prospectives in their band plus us.
