destroyer if history. the ship was built in main man and will make its way to its home port in san diego. you have to be careful there. have you $4 billion extra lying around. i'm guessing for a $4 billion ship the winds and waves probably if the a big deal but either way much smoother sailing than we had last weekend when we had hermine making around onshore winds today. yesterday we had offshore winds and it was hot even at the beaches. today on shore wind so 7 at the immediate coastline. generally a cloudy day with peeks of sunshine. can't entirely rule out a spotty shower. the bulk of the day will be high. you can get out and enjoy maybe sit and relax on the beep and again winds and waves much better than when we had hermine hanging around just a week ago. now out in the tropics actually three areas that hurricane centers keep an eye on. one over the straits of florida, another one passing over puerto rico headed toward hispaniola. hurricane center says little to know chance that either of those will develop.
