Irma

We are getting torrential rain here in part of Jamaica due to the far outer band of Irma. This rain is the very edge of the storm. If you are in it's path...(remember I am in Jamaica and the Storm is North of Cuba... and that is very far away) be very alert. It will bring flood rain... even at the very edges. If you go to Boatus.com and follow the storm, you can see how large it is that me, who is about five miles above Kingston am experiencing thunderstorm and heavy rain.

Jamaica is way down at the bottom of the image... just above the word 'color'... and it is raining like Noah should be coming. If this is what we are getting at the edge... what about those in the middle?

I hope you are safe! I've been seeing so many pictures of destruction in your place and in other places as well. Even have before and after pics to show how bad everything is.

Jamaica is far to the South of Cuba and Irma is running on the North Coast of Cuba. The storm is so big that edges of it reach Jamaica.
