Wednesday Notes and Updates

Good morning and happy hump day everyone. Well. Joey and I made it back from New York City where we were covering the West Indian American Day Carnival. It was an amazing parade that was viewed by several million people. It was great to see all the people of Caribbean heritage wearing their country’s colors and showing their support. Our hats off to the committee who organized all the activities, you did a great job! Checking the weather today we are watching several areas, we have a Tropical Depression #8 located 220 miles E-SE of Bermuda with winds of 35 mph and is currently stationary, this storm is expected to move north later today. There are no watches or warnings with this system. We have another Tropical Depression named Grace locates approximately 945 miles east of the Lesser Antillies with winds of 30 mph and is moving west at 17 mph. There are no watches or warnings with this storm. Over in the Pacific we have Hurricane Linda located about 405 miles west of the southern tip of Baja, California with winds of 100 mph and moving west at 12 mph. There are no watches or warnings with this storm. In the news, relief continues to pour into Dominica for their storm damage several weeks ago, the Caymen Islands have donated a half million dollars to the effort. A number of countries are stepping up to help. Some 30 people lost their lives in that storm. Dr Keith Riley is the new prime minister of Trinidad and Tobago. Church goers in Cuba are getting ready to greet the Pope when he visits their country Sept 19th. It’s now official, Queen Elizabeth is the longest reining monarch in English historm. as she passed her great great grandmother Queen Victoria for the honor. Well that’s all for now, have a great day everyone, it is great to be back with you.
