The storm has basically passed Grand Cayman with low winds. However, it's about to slam into Cancun, Cozumel tonight or in the early morning. The winds are about 150mph-Category 4 if it holds together. It will be terrible for those folks. The Cozumel "strip" reminds me of the Ft. Lauderdale Beach area. Our roll call group for our cruise in Oct. has plans to meet a local establishment there. I don't know where the alternative port might be if Cozumel is decimated. That's a long time away, though, and other cruisers who go before us will be able to tell us what's going on.
Grenada is having another tough year. So far, the depression behind Emily isn't too promising, according to our local Tampa weather guys. Lynne
