unless she changes course significantly. If you are traveling to/from the USVI this week, better watch the weather! http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

11am tracking brings Erika CLOSE, possibly between STX and STT. Keep a close watch and get prepared!

Great graphic, Michael -- thanks for sharing. And of course the irony is that today is one of the clearest days in a long time -- I can see St. Croix in detail from my window right now....

So back in the states on the Virginia coast us crazy people all went to the beach to watch the storm roll in if it was a Cat 1 or less. I was thinking of checking it out if it is only a tropical storm. I missed Omar because I was in the states. I am a storm junkie.

UPDATE....................................

To all,

Please be advised that the Ports of St. Thomas and St. John will remain open. The ports of St. Thomas and St. John should fall back to port condition X-RAY.

Port condition X-ray means:

The port is open to inbound and outbound vessels. Facilities can continue cargo operations. All vessels over 200GT shall remain vigilant and be prepared to get underway in case the storm track shifts and/or intensifies. If vessels over 200 GT wish to remain in port they must be prepared to submit a Safe Mooring Plan to USCG St. Thomas for further vetting and approval by USCG in Puerto Rico.

Ferry Services between St. John/St. Thomas and St. Thomas and the BVI can operate as scheduled.

Ferry Boat operators are advised to continue to use good marine practices when determining sea state as it relates to passenger and vessel safety.

The Port of St. Croix remains in Port Condition Yankee.

Very Respectfully,

LCDR Timothy J. Grant
