Sept. 4, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! The most interesting thing that happened this morning didn’t come from the sky, but was under our feet. We had a 4.7 earthquake that rattled our windows here on Jonesville Point. This one was about as close as I can remember an earthquake. Several have occurred northeast of Guanaja, but this is the first one I’ve experienced northwest of Guanaja.

Now that we’ve gotten the quake out of the way, we can talk about the weather. There’s an area of rain and clouds near Puerto Cortes, but that is to our west and not headed this way. We will continue to have partly cloudy skies and mild winds out of the east at 10 mph. We have 2 foot seas (.6 meters) on the south side this morning. Those should calm even more tomorrow to around 1 foot and 5-10 mph winds. This week will be calm and fairly dry, with only a small chance of a passing shower, so perfect beach and sea weather. Have a great Sunday!
