What a stupid move by the VIPA. Don't they pay any attention to the weather reports?

VIPA doesn't issue port closings, USCG does.

If you noticed, many of the cruise ships changed their itineraries prior to port closings. A couple rescheduled for Friday but that will probably change again due to TS Erika' s approach.
