    ...Depression in the eastern Caribbean Sea strengthens into Tropical Storm Omar...

    a tropical storm watch is in effect for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands...the British Virgin Islands...and the extreme eastern portion of the Dominican Republic from Isla Saona to Cabo engano.

    A tropical storm watch may be required later this afternoon for the islands of St. Martin...St. Eustatius...and Saba.

    For storm information specific to your area...including possible inland watches and warnings...please monitor products issued by your local weather office.

    At 1100 am AST...1500z...the center of Tropical Storm Omar was located by satellite and radar data from Curacao to be near latitude 14.0 north...longitude 69.0 west or about 355 miles...570 km... south-southwest of San Juan Puerto Rico and about 125 miles... 200 km...north of Curacao.

Rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches with maximum amounts of 6 inches are possible across extreme northwestern and north central Venezuela and the northern Guajira Peninsula. These rains could produce life-threatening flash floods and mud slides.

    Thank you, Arubalisa. My friend, who lives in Puerto Rico, is scheduled to leave there tomorrow for the Eastern Coast of the U.S. He says depending on Omar's status for PR., he will either have to postpone his trip...or, hopefully, may still be able to fly out. Hope he does arrive safe here.

    Yah, we're here now. And it. is. quite. suckole.

    We had dinner at Simply Fish last night at 6:30pm and around 8:00pm as we were finished we saw the storm clouds coming and by 8:10pm it was pouring like I have never seen rain pour down before. It rained pretty much all night, and by the time we were ready for bed, around midnight, the wind was so fierce that it was knocking on our sliding glass door, and blowing the porch chairs all over the place. We're staying at the Divi Phoenix, and outside it is totally flooded. The waves, yes, I said that right... WAVES are huge for Aruba and blowing all the sea crap ontothe beach. Oh, the beach is flooded up to the palapas, in places.

    As of now, at 6:45pm it is still raining heavily and is still windy as anything. Some people say it's going to be gone by tomorrow morning, some say by tonight, some people have said it's going to be like this for 4 days. I don't know who to believe.

    We have a wedding tomorrow morning, on the beach. I am so hoping it's going to be good, for them. Aruba hasn't had weather like this for 4 years, and has not had a Tropical Storm hit them since 99.

    Of course right? Because I'm here! Hahha....

    Whatever. A storm here is still better than a storm in Jersey.
