Couple Storms We Are Watching

August 28, 2012

Good morning everyone, Bob The Parrot here, thanks for checking in. Joey and I are watching two different storms today, Isaac continues to move thru the Gulf of Mexico headed for the US Gulf coast, this storm could be a Hurricane when it makes landfall late tonight or early tomorrow. We are also watching a new Tropical Storm named Ileana moving off the Mexican coast, there are no watches or warnings with this storm right now as it is well out to sea. Joey and I will be off to Curacao tomorrow morning so I will be out of touch until next week, remember you can get storm updates on the home page and of course at One Caribbean Television…if your cable operator doesn’t carry OCTV ask them to add it to your lineup so you can watch weather, news, sports and special features and programming all about the Caribbean 24 hours a day. See you soon.

Tripical Storm Isaac

August 22, 2012

Hello everyone, Bob The parrot here with an eye on a new storm called Isaac. Isaac is currently a Tropical Storm but has the potential to become a Hurricane within the next couple days. Numerous watches and warnings have been posted with this storm. Isaac should push through the Lesser Antillies tonight producing heavy rains and work himself into the Northeast Caribbean Sea on Thursday. Areas in Haiti, Cuba and South Florida have the greatest chance of seeing Hurricane conditions as it looks right now but things could chance these storms have a mind of their own so stay tuned to One Caribbean Television for complete updates. Remember if you don’t get One Caribbean Television call your cable provider and ask them to add it to your lineup.

Watching A New Storm

August 21, 2012

Hey everyone, Bob The Parrot here….Joey and I are watching a new storm today in the Atlantic called Tropical Depression #9 which could very well become a Tropical Storm by the end of the day. There have been numerous Tropical Storm Watches and Warnings issued so far. This storm looks like it will reach the Central Lesser Antillies on Wednesday and move into the Caribbean Sea on Thursday. We will be watching this storm closely because it has a good chance of becoming a Hurricane. We will keep you posted but don’t forget you can check the home page of this web sight on the lower right hand side to get the latest info.

Great To Be Back

August 20, 2012

Hey everyone, Bob The Parrot here…it is great to be back after our three week trip back to the Caribbean…we spent time in Puerto Rico, Trinidad, Antigua and Jamaica….it was great to see all our friends and viewers. It was really exciting, we were standing in the street in Kingston with the folks when Usain Bolt won the 100 meters and the crowd went wild!!!! Our first visit to Antigua and Barbuda was just amazing, I want to thank all the nice folks we met who really made us feel welcome. Joey and I will be headed to Curacao for the North Sea Jazz Festival which takes place August 31 and Sept 1st it is always a great time. It’s good to be back everyone, Joey and I missed you.
