10:55pm Tuesday Update on Maria

As of 11pm EDT/AST, winds in Maria are 175mph. In mountainous areas and on the higher stories of buildings (i.e., hotels) winds could gust to 190 mph or higher. Severe flash flooding will occur. 

Hurricane force winds are now occurring on St. Croix, US VI. 

Revised time of arrivals: The eye will reach the southeast coast of Puerto Rico between 6:30 and 8am AST ( = EDT). 5:30am and 7am. The eye will reach San Juan about 2 hours later. 

The damage will be catastrophic. Puerto Rico's government declared bankruptcy. I am hoping that will not retard relief efforts.

Here is the radar image as of 10:45pm AST/EDT.
