    Well, hurricane season is June - November, and I can only comment from a Bermuda opinion (way north). The storms can be everywhere from non-existant to *rather* dicey. (Most times, they look worse than they are). Hurricane Fabian hit Bermuda September 2003 and was a disaster. It's hit or miss really. Keep an eye on the Caribbean weather pages, and note what's happening where storm-wise. Also, hurricanes are *very* unpredictable and can move *very* fast (or fizzle out). I guess it's just 'taking the plunge' and hoping for the best! Jeff-

    hi thankyou for your reply , when the hurricuns or storms happen do they last for hours and then move off or do they last all day , if they do last only an hour or so does the weather return to being sunny again or not? thankyou leanne (you have cheered my boyfreind up abit ) also ,if we go to cuba on a gamble , what is the likely hood of the holiday being succesfull (good weather) or is it going to be a storm every day?

    It pretty much depends on the location/severity of the storm/time of day. An Easter storm (2000) moved in and looked horrendous (black skies - severe winds et al) around 11 A. We battened down the hatches, and figured what the hell. It was all over and sunny and warm by 11:45 A. Remember, Cuba, Haiti, and the Windward Islands (I think), are on the front lines for incoming storns). Jeff-

    The chance of winning the lotery is bigger than ending up in a hurricane Cuba is hit by 2 real hurricanes the last 3 years ... before that they didn't get hit for 50 years!!! Go to Cuba and have a great time :)) Anja

    I got back from Cuba a couple of weeks ago, I went in a month with, supposingly, the most rainfall. And guess what, it only rained (actually drizzle) once in the whole week - for less than half an hour. There were some occational thunderstorms, that was it. Most of the time was blue sky. I'd say don't worry and go for it! :)
