  1. Named Storm: 'Paloma'

    Tropical Storm Paloma developed over the past 36 hours from a tropical depression in the western Caribbean. The storm is forecast to make Hurricane status sometime on Friday. The storm will cross central Cuba to the northeast on Sunday and Monday and will also affect the Bahamas and south Florida.

    Persons in the Florida Keys and the southern counties in Florida are being asked to watch the progress of this storm carefully. We will post additional information as it becomes available.

  2. Hurricane Paloma Update 07 Nov 2008, 06:00 Hrs CST USA.

    Paloma reached hurricane status as predicted and is heading for the Cayman Islands today with Catagory 1 winds (80 MPH at this time) and is expected to reach Catagory 3 levels on Saturday before a south central Cuba landfall. As the storm crosses the mountains of Cuba, it will dimminish in intensity to a Tropical Storm and will then affect the Bahamas with heavy rains, high Tropical Storm force winds and storm surges of 2 to 5 feet. The track of Paloma will be affected by a strong cold front moving easterly over the US in the next two days and will most likely miss southern Florida. Some rain bands might be seen in extreme south Florida and the Florida Keys. This may be our last Hurricane Paloma advisory because of the very low USA landfall potential. If the track or any significant details change, we will post as needed. Persons who may be vacationing in the Bahamas over the next week are being asked to call ahead to verify flight schedules and Cruise Line operations.
