Invest 98L has been upgraded to Tropical Depression 13 and will likely arrive near or just north of St. John early Saturday morning, with sustained winds of 50-60 miles per hour. It is expected to be named Tropical Storm Laura later today.
Forecasters anticipate that we will receive 1 to 3 inches of water from the storm, with up to 5 inches in some isolated areas, which most of us will happily accept on behalf of our empty cisterns!
Please keep a close eye on this storm, as they can escalate very quickly.
At this time, our airport and ferries remain open.

Thinking of you and wishing for a good outcome from “Laura”.
Now [Fri noon] projected to pass south of STT/STJ
Curious how they came up with the name ‘invest 98L’.
where do they take the ferry boats during storms when they are not at Cruz Bay Dock?
How’s the weather?
