GOOD NEWS: “Grand Cayman has escaped what was feared might be a direct hit from Hurricane Dean as the category 4 storm passed some 100 miles to the south of the island on Monday morning.” Things don’t look so good for Mexico, though.

UPDATE: InstaPundit’s Cayman Islands correspondent John Thompson emails: “We’re getting some strong winds and gusts right now, but that’s about it. Little rain, if any. I think we will be all right.”
