    TOTALS OF 3 TO 5 INCHES ARE EXPECTED OVER PORTIONS OF THE
    BAHAMAS...WITH ISOLATED MAXIMUM AMOUNTS OF 12 INCHES. RAINFALL
    TOTALS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE FLORIDA KEYS INTO

    STORM SURGE...THE COMBINATION OF A DANGEROUS STORM SURGE AND THE

    Randymon, how did the resorts fair out? I expect CSS & CTI were most effected based on the path. We hope all the wonderful staff and their families are OK.
