Tropical Storm Jeanne: Virgin Islands now under Hurricane Warning!

The US Virgin Islands is now under a Hurricane Warning!

AT 5 PM AST...2100Z...A HURRICANE WARNING HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR PUERTO
RICO AND THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS.
A meteorologist out of Puerto Rico's National Weather Service office just said that soon to be Hurricane Jeanne will pass just south of St. Croix but that he expects that the wind shouldn't get much past 70 mph in gusts...But we know how that goes. Expect Hurricane conditions as per the Hurricane Warning the NWS placed us under at 5:00 pm .

Here's a webcam maintained by GoToStCroix.com that's focused on the boardwalk and harbour at Christiansted.

Providing the power and/or net connection doesn't go down, there should be lights all night and It could get interesting even though the town is on the leeward (north) side.

Here are some local streaming radio links:
WSTA 1340khz AM - St. Thomas.
ZBVI Radio - 780Khz. AM - Tortola.


As much as I love this island, St. Croix - as usual - just can't seem get it together to have radio streaming on the net.

Anyway, if anyone can point me toward a link to a St. Croix radio station with a working stream, please leave the URL in the comments section and I'll post it if I still have a connection to the net. Otherwise it'll just be there in the comments I guess.
