Has anyone heard anything about how Ocho Rios fared from the hurricane? Thank God Jamaica dodged a direct hit! Royal Caribbean posted a change in itineraries but Princess has not posted anything on their website. Thanks.

I don't have any direct reports, but O. Rios and Montego Bay are on the northern side of the island and should be fine. The southern side got basically the effects of a strong tropical storm with lots of rain and some roofs blown off, but not as bad as it could have been that's for sure.

It looks like Cozumel will be spared too, so that is good for the cruise lines.

114+ MPH sustained winds on the Southern coast are a bit more than tropical storm force winds. We have seen some reports here in Miami but not a lot of video yet. I have heard reports of some destroyed homes. I have not talked to any friends from there yet.
