Hurricane Maria Following The Path Of Irma – Why Cabrera Should Escape A Direct Hit

It has been quite a hurricane season in the Caribbean. First we dodged most of Hurricane Irma here on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic and hopefully we will miss most of Hurricane Maria. As you will see in this video, since 1851 when they started keeping records, the Dominican Republic has been hit by several hurricanes over the decades. In fact, historically, we average about one hit every 10 years or so. It turns out that most of the hard hits tend to be on the southern coast of the DR. The two biggest hurricanes to cause significant damage in the DR were the 1930 hurricane and Hurricane Georges in 1998.

In some ways we are pretty lucky in the village of Cabrera up on the North Coast. We tend to be somewhat sheltered by the mountains of Puerto Rico and several mountain ranges of the DR. It looks like Hurricane Maria will follow a very similar path and spare Cabrera from the worst of the impact.
