Cyclone Evan update Dec 12 6AM

Winds are starting to pick up slightly here in Pago Pago harbor.  This photo was taken at 6:30AM on December 12, 2012
 GRIB now shows Pago Pago, American Samoa getting 49.8 knots.  This is average wind speed so we can expect gusts over 50 knots.  That would be 57mph or 92kmh.  Can't wait to see what freeway speeds feel like on a Chris White Atlantic 42 catamaran.

Pago now lies within the 50 knot circle.  Yikes!.   Learn how to read this chart below.
