Comments: I was getting automated notifications of about an inch an hour of rainfall, and it looks like that rainfall rate is continuing (hmm, maybe a rainfall graph....). Wind speed seems to have peaked around 4AM at just over 70MPH. Provo's a bit closer to the eye, so they probably got a bit more. The sun is just coming up now, and I'm not seeing any significant vegetation damage or storm surge, though the worst of the wind-driven storm surge is probably still to come as the wind comes around to the south and piles the water up on the bank. -Report from blogger on stormcarib.com
