Boy, that was fast. This morning RINA was just a tropical storm south of us. This afternoon it had become a CAT 1 Hurricane! The water temps are so hot in that area that there is plenty of fuel to feed this beast. The hot water goes down deep so even as it churns up the deeper water it is still HOT enough to add fuel to the fire. The big question is: WHERE is it going? The computer models are unclear. It will be a few days before it becomes clear how much strength it will have and where it will hit. It is already nipping at Cancun, a popular tourist destination. In fact the President of my condo association is on a cruise ship that is probably getting hit by winds from RINA right now. Stay tuned…Stay prepared.
