  1. Tropical Storm Erika formed in the central Atlantic from a Tropical Depression overnight. The storm is moving generally west northwest at 20 MPH and is currently 830 miles east of the Windward Islands. Very early tracking models are showing a fair chance of strengthening as this storm passes near Puerto Rico on Friday into Saturday. Persons in the Bahamas and Florida should start monitoring the progress of this storm. We are evaluating this storm hourly as well as the remnants of Named Storm Danny that is now just a dissipated low pressure area near Puerto Rico. Updates will be posted as necessary.

  2. Named Storm Erika - Update 27 August 2015 @ 4:30 PM USA EDT

    Based upon our own computer modeling, as well as the information being released by the National Hurricane Center in Florida, we are asking that ALL PERSONS living in or traveling to the Bahamas and Florida closely monitor the progress of this storm. The Bahamas and almost all of the State of Florida are in the "Probability Cone" for the time period late Saturday evening, August 29, to Wednesday, September 02, for the effects of a Hurricane or strong Tropical Storm. The probability cone is the average of all commercial tracking models submitted to the NHC each day. Those models are showing some initial weakening as the storm encounters mountains on Puerto Rico and Hispaniola, but regrouping as it approaches the Bahamas Saturday into Sunday and further strengthening as the storm gets closer to southern Florida early on Monday, August 31. This storm COULD POSSIBLY be rated eventually as a Category 2 Hurricane with winds up to 110 Miles Per Hour near the center IF the mountains do not reduce it's intensity. There are several variables that the NHC and other groups are attempting to sort out regarding track variations, however, if you will be in The Bahamas or anywhere in Florida over the next week or so, please use the National Hurricane Center link supplied below for OFFICIAL updates as well as monitoring your own local media for government announcements.

  3. Official Report Information

    Florida is in a state of emergancy, this storm has caused severe damaged and loss of life in Dominica. Over 20 people have died and has caused the country to fall back years.

    Please continually moniotor official sources for updates. Pastor Gary to follow with further information when he is online, this is his area of expertise.
     
  4. TROPICAL STORM ERIKA - Update - 6 AM USA EDT, 29 August 2015 -

    Tropical Storm Erika has interacted with some of the mountains of The Dominican Republic but not all. The storm has gone through several central low pressure core replacement cycles, which has moved the storm a bit farther to the west and therefore, has pushed the projected track of this storm farther west as well. The CURRENT 6 AM USA EDT 29 August 2015 projections are for the storm to pass over central Cuba early Sunday, August 30, and enter the very warm waters of the southeastern Gulf of Mexico. Warm water is the 'fuel' for Tropical Storms and strengthening is a good possibility. All persons who live in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana should be monitoring the progress of this storm by local media broadcasts and the official advisories coming from the National Hurricane Center in Miami.
