Storm brewing in eastern Atlantic, say experts

| 24/07/2013

(CNS): A tropical depression some 310 miles off the coast of the Cape Verde Islands is very likely to become a tropical storm by this evening or early tomorrow hurricane experts in Miami said Wednesday. The National Hurricane Centre issued a bulletin on Wednesday morning advising that the depression which is moving at around 20 mph towards the west-north-west was likely to strengthen as it travels across the ocean towards the region. With maximum sustained winds already at 35 mph the weather system could pose a threat to this side of the Atlantic in the coming week. Meanwhile, according to the local weather service and the Kearney Gomez radar, Cayman would enjoy light easterly winds and no organized rainfall across the area.

    Please stop pandering the "name everything after someone brigade" and just call it the Cayman Islands Radar.

      Why would anyone want a radar named after them anyway?  I would prefer a tree or an orchid- but a blinking radar!!

    By no means am I an expert, but I've done a little bit of stocking up and preparing just in case. It's September through November that usually concerns me. Here are four really handy tips.

    1. Make sure you ride out the storm in a strong, high and dry building away from the ocean.

    2. Have plenty of water and some waterproof snacks.

    3. Waterproof bag for your key documents.

    4. Avoid booze (until all clear). 

    Good luck to everyone.
