    It was the second fastest intensification ever from Tropical Depression to Hurricane!

    Hurricanes dont "hover" (well Wilma did, but typically they don't). They move along a path, the exact path is hard to predict this far out. How long any effects last depends on how fast the storm is moving and how close we are to the centre.

    This thread is in the locals forum, so most of us are stuck with it whatever happens since we live here. Here's the similar thread with more tourist input:
    Temptation Resort Cancun Forum | Cancuncare Forum

    Still too early to say exactly what might happen. If it's a direct hit the hotel may well be evacuated, and that wont be much fun at all. But let's not think about that at this stage. Hope you have a fab time with or without Rina.

    The info in the graphics for this storm looks like a Cat 1 now, increasing to Cat 3 by later tonight or tomorrow morning and then back down to a Cat 2 when it goes past Cozumel and up the coast towards Cancun. Gone by late Friday night. Of course I hope this plays out this way. But you can never tell and the computer models have this all over the area.
    Can we start a Hurrican Rina Go away chant now and keep it going till Friday?
