Looks like the place I stayed at in Cuba (northeast of Holguin) the previous two times could take quite a beating. Ike is on a direct course. It's like the resort has a red bulls eye on it. <br><br> I'm also concerned for the Cayos along the north shore. Even if the winds don't get them, storm surge might. I was there when Hurricane Lily passed to the south side of Cuba. It was really wild out there. The ocean level rose significantly and came very close to topping the sand dunes and swooshing into my hotel room. Lily was 250 km away. Ike will be half that distance. <br><br><br><br>
They are gonna get clobbered. About 90% of their tourism is along that north shore. If Cuba gets nailed I hope they can get fixed up before tourist season gets in full swing. <br><br>They don't have a local Home Depot to run to for supplies. <br><br>
