Adjusting the Plan

As Hurricane Irma thrashes on westward in the Caribbean, cruise lines have spent their night and today trying to decide when the storm will make its northward turn and then decide what to do with the ships.

Throughout the night and today, each update of the computer models and each update of the National Hurricane Center's prediction has moved Irma's track a little farther east after its northward turn, so that the eye now appears to be going up the east coast of Florida until it gets to Florida's northeast corner.

Details appeared in the September 6 edition of Cruise News Daily.
