Storm possibly forming…
An area of disturbance way north of the Caribbean (northeast of the Bahamas) was showing signs of developing during the last few days. The NHC (National Hurricane Center) gave this system a 20-30% chance to develop within the next 5 days; however certain conditions may NOT allow further development to take place.
If it does develop (against all odds) into a tropical (or sub-tropical) storm, it will be named Arlene. This system, however, will NOT affect the SSS Islands or the rest of the Caribbean.
Note: It is NOT a tropical storm or hurricane as yet.
Prepare your families, homes, and properties well in advance of the upcoming Hurricane Season — Don’t get caught off-guard.
