Hurricanes

We're supposed to arrive on Saturday but worried about Irma.

Any news on the hurricane or how well the island is for adapting to hurricanes?

Keep tracking via news reports. As of today, Cayman Islands are not in the zone.

Which airport are you flying through? If it's Miami you may be more impacted by that than conditions on the island.

Right now the predictions are showing that there is about a 10% chance of Grand Cayman getting tropical storm force winds.

Irma is not a threat to the Cayman Islands.

You can track Irma (and any other hurricane/Tropical Storm) at the following websites:

http://stormcarib.com

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov

wwww.wunderground.com

If you study the data you find there you'll know as much or more than anybody about the storms.

Thank you all for your replies.

I feel better all ready!

We are flying out of Charlotte so that's good.

We are scheduled to fly in Saturday afternoon. Worried as well. Airlines has yet to cancel. So hoping that's a good sign.

We are supposed to be arriving on Sunday, going through Atlanta. Not sure what to do at this point.

Airline will determine status if Atlanta is to be affected.

If you are arriving on Sunday, personally, I think you will be fine. Also lucky that you are coming through Atlanta and not Miami as it is forecasted to be hitting Miami over the weekend. The forecast doesn't look like it will be affecting Georgia on Sunday.
