The eye of Hurricane Dorian passed over St Thomas (USVI) approximately 22 miles away as a category 1 hurricane yesterday at 2pm with 77mph sustained winds and gusts as high as 97mph. It battered the BVI with heavy rain and strong tropical force, perhaps hurricane strength, winds.
None of the boats at Nanny Cay, on or off the water, suffered any issues. The property came through unscathed as well.
This was the first storm since since 2017’s Hurricane Irma and a little reminder that you can never over-prepare for, or under-estimate, the direction and strength of developing tropical systems: until very late in the day Dorian was destined to pass 70 miles south of St Croix as a small tropical storm.
