"The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Orlene had maximum sustained winds of 80 mph (130 kph) at midafternoon. It was centered about 195 miles (315 kilometers) south-southwest of Cabo Corrientes and moving north at 5 mph (7 kph)."
I prefer hurricanes to be moving North West.
NOAA is using the symbol M (major hurricane) as apposed to the H (normal hurricane)
I don't think we are going to get much damage from
Orlene but I am boarded up anyway, its less stressful to do it than to not. I plan to stay on the beach tonight, the high point will be tomorrow around 10 am with the high tide and the storm directly off shore.
One of these day's we will be able to get accurate predictions for specific GPS concordances. Which will mean the prediction algorithm takes into consideration the way La Manzanilla is protected by Tamarindo etc. and the prediction will be different for La Manzanilla as compared to Boca de Iguanas.
