I know it is too early too know much right now but we fly out tomorrow am. Do they evacuate playa for a category 1 hurricane or tropical storm. We are staying in a condo at xaman ha. We plan to just ride out a cat 1 at the condo but that being said we are from wv and have never even seen a tropical storm in real life. Is this a dangerous plan for us with 2 kids? Thanks. Sorry I realize it is too early to plan much but just want to know if staying put at the condo in cat 1 hurricane is possible. If not where do we go to ride it out. I know it is strange but we are a little excited to see and be a part of a real "small" hurricane if it is safe but have no problem high tailing out of there if this is a dangerous idea.
Specifically are xaman ha condos safe for this size storm. Just want to have a pan in mind and cover all bases. We have flash lights candles and card games. Any other things needed to ride it out.
I think that I will shut all of mine tomorrow or Monday
