Tropical Storm Chris

Postby KarenS » Tue Aug 01, 2006 1:54 pm

Tropical Storm Chris, the third named storm of the 2006 Atlantic hurricane season, developed early Tuesday near the Leeward Islands, forecasters said.
Chris had sustained winds near 40 mph, just above the threshold for a tropical storm, according to the National Hurricane Center.
A tropical storm warning was posted for the islands of Antigua, Barbuda, Anguilla, St. Kitts, Nevis, Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Barthelemy and St. Martin. A tropical storm watch was issued for Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands.

A very useful website for storms passing over the Caribbean Islands is
http:stormcarib.com

Locals post frequent updates from their home islands and , in fact, there is a post, as of 16:00 hours today about the eye of the storm being about 11 miles NE of Anguilla but the report from the hurricane hunter aircraft announcing the strongest winds were 10 miles from the center which means it is more than breezy right now on the island.

This website was invaluable in past years during hurricane season providing accurate reports and helping people find relatives, friends etc and exactly what conditions were like on the ground. It is "grass roots" person to person but what was accomplished in getting aid there was outstanding.
