SEEING THE BACK OF HURRICANE JOAQUIN: LATEST UPDATE OCT 3
Since my post yesterday HERE confirming evidence that Joaquin was hooking out into the Atlantic and away from northern Bahamas, the storm has picked up speed as it now heads for Bermuda. It is also on a direct route to Ireland and the UK, but is already weakening. With the storm now reduced to a Cat. 3, a continuing lessening of intensity is predicted.
In this second – and, I hope, final – post of the hurricane season, the images below show the current state of play early today. I’ll repeat the weather watch links at the end.

Oh I hope the intensity continues to lessen, my best wishes to you, RH, for safety and ease. VERY cool to have a photo from Astronaut Kelly at the Space Station.

So glad that you drove Joaquin away and no major damage sustained. Tad Fyock >
Lucky for N Bahamas – dodged the bullet. Not so much for Central Bahamas, unfortunately – they took the hit… RH
