So, this is a long way from home, but nevertheless it's quite terrifying, currently it's joint 2nd (out of 4) for the fastest ever recorded windspeed in a hurricane at 185mph. There has been some speculation that given its current progress it could break the current record and reach 195mph.
It looks set to make landfall on the US as a category 5 hurricane. Two major hurricanes hitting the US in the same year is rare, especially so close to each other (and another storm on track to be declared a hurricane any time now.)
Yet in the middle of all this, there are people standing on their balconies, in the middle of 100mph winds and livestreaming this on their mobile phones. In a way it's incredibly surreal.
