Comments: Now the winds have picked up somewhat here but still nothing to serious at my location in St Lucia. However the Marin bay in South Martinique I have first hand report of winds in excess of 50 knots. (as reported by fm4qh via vhf). Portsmouth Dominica reported 51 mph wind gusts earlier. Here right now raining steadily with occasional heavy showers. Wind is in gusts somewhere in the region of 40 mph I think. ( not measured)
