I was planning a honeymoon to St. Thomas in mid-November, but I just realized that it may be hurricane season. Obviously, we won't know until it's too late to know there will be a hurricane or now, so my question is, should I take the risk? What are the chances of a hurricane there during Nov. 17-24th?
Also, my fiance is a Canadian citizen. I'm a US citizen. What do I have to do to be able to fly out of the US to St. Thomas? She has a Canadian passport.
Any help at all would be appreciated. Thanks.
Hurricane season ends November 30th, but St. Thomas experiences most of it's hurricane activity during August and September. Between 1852 and 2005, St Thomas has only been "hit" by hurricanes four times during November (1978, 1942, 1989 & 1999).

Personally, I would take the risk but that's just me because I love the Caribbean.

wow, thank you so much. That helps out a lot. Does anyone have info about flying out of the US with a Canadian passport?
You're most welcome, Syed!
I'm afraid I can't help you with the information since, like you, I'm a US citizen. But I'm sure someone will visit this thread who can offer some advice.
Enjoy your honeymoon!!!
