5am-- Delta rapidly intensified into a Category 2 Hurricane. Extremely Dangerous Hurricane Conditions are expected for the northeastern Yucatan Peninsula starting early Wednesday & we are under a Hurricane Warning. Delta is moving WNW at nearly 15mph. On the forecast track, the center is expected to pass SW of the Cayman Islands this morning and move over the NE portion of the Yucatan Peninsula early Wednesday, then move over the southern Gulf on Wednesday afternoon. Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicates maximum sustained winds have increased to near 100 mph with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours and Delta is expected to be a major hurricane over the Yucatan Peninsula Wednesday and over the Gulf through Thursday. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the center and Tropical Storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles. An extremely dangerous storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 6 to 9 feet above normal tide levels along the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula within the Hurricane Warning area, near and to the right of where the center makes landfall. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and dangerous waves. In the Yucatan Peninsula, Hurricane conditions are expected in the warning area early Wednesday, with Tropical Storm conditions expected later today. Delta is expected to produce 4 to 6 inches of rain with isolated maximum totals of 10 inches, across portions of the northern Yucatan Peninsula through midweek, which may result in areas of significant flash flooding. The intensity forecast has been raised to 130 mph near Yucatan landfall.
The Vehicle Ferry to Punta Sam was suspended and a notice was published that the passenger ferry to Puerto Juarez will run until conditions require suspension.

Oct. 6-10, -Draconid meteors, peaking on evening of Oct. 7, but should be worth watching on the night before and after, also This is an evening meteor shower, that you don't have to stay up late to watch...look before the waning moon rises in mid-to-late evening. It is usually a slow shower with a meteor every 10-15 minutes. But it is known for having 'bursts" of hundreds or thousands of meteors in occasional years, which aren't predicted with any certainty. "Meteor showers are like fishing. You go, and sometimes you catch something."
20-21-22-Orionid meteors peak in the early morning hours. There's more
activity after midnight and the maximum amount in the pre-dawn hours of

& occur from early October to early November as the earth passes
thru its debris.
