We had 'Georges' go through in 1997 (or was it '98?) but that kept pretty much to the south cpast & then came up via Haiti missing the Puerto Plata area except from a bit of high wind. Get the 'Missus' to check the hurricane historical charts & she will see most 'miss' us by quite a few miles out to sea or blow themselves out with the mountain ranges that surround the inner coastal area. Rains we DO get pretty hard at times, but the majority of 'HOT AIR' which causes ME havoc, comes from a lady I love dearly!!
