New storm aims for St. John

Erika Forecasters expect Tropical Storm Erika to arrive in the Virgin Islands tomorrow morning.

The National Weather Service says the storm is more “disorganized” than earlier this week. A storm eye has been formed, but it is weak. 

Maximum winds have decreased to 45 miles and hour with some increase in strength possible in the next 24 hours. 

The forecasters do not expect Erika to turn into a hurricane as it blows over St. John and the other islands.

Erika is, however, expected to bring lots of rain, two to four inches generally, with some places getting as many as six inches.

Here are a few storm information resource links for the storm.  Forecasts and maps are updated as often as every three hours. Keep 'em handy.

  1. If you are looking for summer travel deals, I know that the Caribbean has some great deals for the fall as well. Despite being in hurricane season I saw the other day that the US Virgin Islands has a fantastic flight package. The details were posted on Travelzoo. Having been to the Caribbean I can definitely attest to the beauty of the islands. Hopefully they will be able to stay clear of this one.
