No active routers and no active sessions = no net.
Good news that Staniel Cay Yacht Club is still standing and they are starting to clean up.
Found this youtube of 6:30 AM today in Nassau. At the time of shooting this video it was 2 hr before the eye's passing.
It's not looking good for Eleuthera or the Abacos
Cut from Chris Parker's WX Update
Exumas: Conditions in StanielCay &amp;amp; G'twn have increased in the past couple hours as squall bands arrived. Peak conditions may increase a bit more overnight (backing NE-N-NNW@50-80k sustained, with some higher gusts). Peak conditions should persist from now thru midnight in G'twn / mostly overnight in StanielCay. Thereafter...winds should begin to decrease as they back from NNW-W-SW, probably near 50k sustained (gusting 65k) for a few hours, before SW winds decrease further. G'twn should subside to SW 50k-or-less by Dawn / StanielCay SW-WSW@50k-or-less by late morning Thu25. Cat &amp;amp; Eluthera: Areas W of Irene's center (some of Eluthera but not any of Cat) should see backing NE-N-NNW@80-100k sustained, with some higher gusts until Irene's center passes (tomorrow morning for Eluthera)...then backing W-SW under 80k sustained, with higher gusts.
For us here in S Florida? A bit rainy and breezy, but okay. Maybe more wind later today and tonight, but not much.
The folks in North Carolina are bracing for a blow as Irene's taking aim at Cape Fear and on up the east coast.
That's all we know for now.
