Hurricane Felix continues to strengthen in the Caribbean, passing north of the islands of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao. After a midday eyewall replacement cycle, Felix has become a category 3 hurricane. The A,B,C Islands were spared any strong winds thanks to the compact nature of Felix's wind core, but heavy, localized flooding rain and some coastal flooding from 12-to-16-foot waves will continue over the remainder of today. In the coming days, Felix will bring large waves to the southern coasts of Jamaica and Grand Cayman Island.
If you look carefully at the projected trajectory, Central Belize (Belize City) where I am located lies in the direct pathway of this strengthening hurricane. This is serious folks. We have approximately 65 hours to get prepared as this storm will be upon us by mid-week Wednesday.
Thanks for visiting here and please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I will be back on-line when this one passes through. May God keep and bless us all.
