Hurricane Maria Local Statement Advisory Number 6...CORRECTED
National Weather Service San Juan PR AL152017
645 PM AST Sun Sep 17 2017

This product covers THE US VIRGIN ISLANDS

**MARIA BECOMES A HURRICANE**

NEW INFORMATION
---------------

* CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
- A Hurricane Watch has been issued for St Croix and
St.Thomas...St. John...and Adjacent Islands

* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
- A Hurricane Watch is in effect for St Croix and St.Thomas...St.
John...and Adjacent Islands

* STORM INFORMATION:
- About 590 miles east-southeast of Saint Thomas VI or about 550
miles east-southeast of Saint Croix VI
- 13.8N 57.5W
- Storm Intensity 75 mph
- Movement West-northwest or 285 degrees at 15 mph

SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

At 5 PM AST Maria was upgraded to a hurricane and a hurricane watch
was declared for the U.S. Virgin Islands, the outer Atlantic waters,
the outer Caribbean waters and the waters surrounding the northern U.S.
Virgin Islands. This means that hurricane condtions are expected in
the southeasternmost portion of these areas within 48 hours. Winds of
64 knots or more with higher gusts may be expected as early as this
time Tuesday afternoon. Maria is expected to cross near Saint Croix and
across Puerto Rico during the next 48 to 72 hours.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* WIND:
Prepare for life-threatening wind having possible devastating impacts
across U.S. Virgin Islands. Potential impacts in this area include:
- Structural damage to sturdy buildings, some with complete roof
and wall failures. Complete destruction of mobile homes. Damage
greatly accentuated by large airborne projectiles. Locations
may be uninhabitable for weeks or months.
- Numerous large trees snapped or uprooted along with fences and
roadway signs blown over.
- Many roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
or heavily wooded places. Many bridges, causeways, and access
routes impassable.
- Widespread power and communications outages.


* FLOODING RAIN:
Prepare for life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible
devastating impacts across PUERTO RICO AND THE US VIRGIN ISLANDS.
Potential impacts include:
- Guts may overwhelmingly overflow their banks in many places with
deep moving water. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and
ditches may become raging rivers. In mountain areas, deadly
runoff may rage down valleys while increasing susceptibility to
rockslides and mudslides. Flood control systems and barriers may
become stressed.
- Flood waters can enter numerous structures within multiple
communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or washed
away. Numerous places where flood waters may cover escape
routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of raging water
with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions become very
dangerous. Numerous road and bridge closures with some weakened
or washed out.

* SURGE:
Surge of 4 to 6 feet is expected--mainly on the southern coasts.

* TORNADOES:
Prepare for a dangerous tornado event having possible significant
impacts. Potential impacts include:
- The occurrence of scattered tornadoes can hinder the execution
of emergency plans during tropical events.
- Several places may experience tornado damage with a few spots
of considerable damage, power loss, and communications failures.
- Locations could realize roofs torn off frame houses, mobile
homes demolished, boxcars overturned, large trees snapped or
uprooted, vehicles tumbled, and small boats tossed about.
Dangerous projectiles can add to the toll.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

* EVACUATIONS:
For those under evacuation orders, leave as soon as practical with a
destination in mind. Gas up your vehicle well ahead of time. Be sure
that you take all essential materials from your emergency supplies kit.
Let others know where you are going and when you intend to arrive.

If evacuating the area, stick to prescribed evacuation routes. Look
for additional traffic information on roadway smart signs and listen to
select radio channels for further travel instructions. Drivers should
not use cell phones while operating vehicles.

For those not under evacuation orders, understand that there are
inherent risks to evacuation (such as traffic congestion, accidents,
and driving in bad weather), so evacuate only if necessary. Help keep
roadways open for those that are under evacuation orders.

If you are exceptionally vulnerable to wind or water hazards from
tropical systems, consider voluntary evacuation, especially if being
officially recommended. Relocate to a predetermined shelter or safe
destination.

If evacuating away from the area or relocating to a nearby shelter,
leave early before weather conditions become hazardous.

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:
Now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your Emergency
Supplies Kit is stocked and ready.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the
exact forecast track as there are inherent forecast uncertainties
which must be taken into account.

If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind,
such as a mobile home, an upper floor of a high rise building, or on
a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you
and your family for several days.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large inland lake, in a low lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

Visitors to the area should become familiar with nearby surroundings.
If you are a visitor, know the name of the county or parish in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
onsite disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.

* ADDITIONAL SOURCES OF INFORMATION:
- For information on appropriate preparations see ready.gov
- For information on creating an emergency plan see getagameplan.org
- For additional disaster preparedness information see redcross.org

NEXT UPDATE
-----------

The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather
Service in San Juan PR around 8:30 PM AST, or sooner if conditions
warrant.

I doubt you remember me Cyclone, we had some doozy conversations after Katrina... been S2K since 2005, but a lot of issues kept me away for a while... just saying wishing everything turns out okay for you and for the Islands. Always being prepared is so important. Good luck!

A special shout out to my friends, Cycloneye and Gustywind.
Be ready for this one. Hoping you do well and stay dry and safe.
and best wishes to all others in our neighboring islands who may be affected by Maria.
We are hoping in St Maarten that we only get tropical storm force winds. Still, we prepare for everything.
Good luck to all! Hoping fair weather is just around the corner!

Hopefully they take this as an opportunity to rebuild it stronger and better. If on top of that AEE will start maintaining their net we would be better off.

Stay safe!

Most of the Dominica station are down.... Antigua is getting reports from Dominica via WhatsApp and callers from Dominica and people who have relatives on Dominica:

Antigua Observer 91.1 is on with excellent coverage and they are still to get a bit of Maria http://radio.garden/live/saint-johns/antiguaobserver/ It is also on Tune- in app...


DBS is down... the newsroom has collapsed. Wice Q95.5 is running out of Dubai by a resident from Dominica....

I highly reccomend the Tune-In app... it is free on android and iOS... Go to Browse North America, Caribbean islands, Antigua/Barbuda.

good morning from St Maarten. wind is picking up a lot. its getting stronger as I type. Not much rain though. We are under a strict curfew as we wait out Maria.
Shelters are open.
We will be OK.
There is a lot of zinc lying around though, so with tropical storm force winds there could be zinc flying through the ar.
Reports we are hearing out of Dominica this morning are devastating.
I have many friends on SXM who have family in Dominica. They are desperately trying to get word of their families.
Gustywind, I hope you are OK. Report in when you can.
Cycloneye and those of you in VI and PR, please be safe.

I didn't imagine that I was going to make another post like this one but we are in record territory wih Irma and Maria being cat 5's almost in the same area.I guess this time I will be without power for a longer period of time as it will be a direct hit.Hopefully things are not too bad but is a cat 4-5 so let's hope for the best.See all soon.

I just got off the phone with my dad in Aguirre, he is staying in his home. He is about 1.5 miles from the ocean. He did not want to leave. He might go to his neighbor across the street. It will be a very worrisome time for all the family not in PR worrying about all of you in PR. My stomach is in knots over this storm. Sending prayers to everyone in Puerto Rico, hope she doesn't destroy too much of our beautiful island. Stay safe Cycloneye and check in when you can.

LUIS do not let guard down, MARIA is a monter WIND CANE pretty amazing, take it seriously because of Guadeloupe have been HIT POUND seriously!
I'm tired 2 hours of sleep only, but i can assume that all who are in the path of MARIA to be EXTREMELY VIGILANT, some people of Guadeloupe said that winds were like reactor of a plane and i can personnaly tell you that winds are tremendous, rainfall had been extreme in some areas like Saint-Claude with 459 millimeters :eek: :eek: :eek: BE PREPARED PR GOD WILL BLESS YOU AS THE OTHERS NEIGHBOURS i hope sincerely!
By the way i have no water in my locality, no TV, the satellite on the top of the building had been swept by the strong winds this morning as i'm in front of the sea only 20 meters from my balcon.
REGARDS
Gustywind very worry and sad of the others neighbours! This stuff is insane, nasty and unrealistic! :cry: :cry: :( :(
