Does everyone in its path… (ahem)… feel fey?

Dr. Masters got a report from a resident of Vieques that the storm last night was subjectively worse than the reported parameters indicated. Stay safe, Bryan, if you end up in its path Tuesday or Wednesday.

We won’t know much until it starts its turn. So far it is trending to the East, but it is too far out to be sure.
