My Apologies Haiti !
I myself am daunted about 'reporting'.
As what was free, clinical, life-saving data 
is now a rare and costly occurrence.
Secondly the youths are not taking up the baton.
The truth is twisted to make money.


The graphic speaks for itself with a visible centre of circulation.
Thank GOD! The winds are less than 25 mph.

- TW in 36 hrs. -

Dominica and Barbados,
all People of Paradise,

A Tropical Wave is at 55W approaching in 36 hours.

Winds are 15 - 20 mph.
Waves are going to be greater than three (03') feet.
Precipitation is hard to predict at this time but 
more than one inch in Barbados.

The Windshear is to the West of the Eastern Caribbean.
It's difficult to get a current SAL Map.

without Drama


There was a 7.0 earthquake south of Panama with Moderate Damage!!

People of Paradise,

This Webpage is Free! By any Definition, ... !
With Freedom. Comes Responsibility.
In this Case, over (life & death) Emergencies, ...
Taking action on just One view on a Low Pressure System,
is as silly, as it sounds.
Leaving everything upon the Gov't and Authorities.


There are two Tropical Waves (TWs) approaching at just after
30W and 40W respectively, ... !! Battling SAL and losing !
They are also two low in Latitude to be Perilous.
The Bad News:
Any TW in Climate Change has 'Erika' Potential.

God Bless

Beloved People of Paradise,

I am solely posting a PHOTO.

(Only because Trinidad (and Tobago) is 
the day-before weather for other territories).
Recall: A key point in an emergency is "Don't Panic!"

The photo can be comic or serious.
It can be mildly informative or precautionary.

Here goes, . . .

God! Please Bless

Exert Vigilance. As a typical Climate Change Tropical Wave
that is leaving part of south Trinidad and the entire North West
is heading a little more vigorously in your direction, ... !!

We had 3.42 ins of rain.

God Bless

Good morning folks.

I trust that everything is ok with Barbados and St Vincent. Hope that no damage has been done through the passing of hurricane Elsa. Lots of rain Trinidad which began during the night and lasted throughout the morning. Reports of flooding in the southern part of the island. No wind is present at this time.

Best Regards,
Michael Abouhamad

- (Sigh) - Here's to an Overactive 2021

"Would someone please let the pressure out of the 'Steamer'?"
Hello, July 2021
Hello, People of Paradise!

Before I wrote this Post. I was Reading.
I was Reading and Researching, 
capturing images and reading some more, ...
(Started off with Dr. Jeff Masters, by the way!)

Before I was 'Reading', I was 'thinking and praying'.
Enhanced by the river in front of me in the gallery.
Giving it an aspect of 'Unitarian Meditation'?

Anyway, I was more than thinking. I was saying to myself.
"If just south of Barbados is The 1st. Impact Point.
Then why is there no talk of Grenada and Tobago 
getting 20mph (+) plus winds?"
Which science leads me to say. That winds will play 
an equal part to water in this one.

Even though it's 50 West and Designated
My take is: LET'S WAIT on The HURRICANE HUNTERS, ... ?

That way,
"We'll be waiting for an Update!!! Not a downscale".

God Bless

It's 12:45pm.
I'm Now Doing Morning Chores and Prayers.

So! I'll be Short, ... , and standing by !!!!

There is a ?TW? approaching and to some have reached!
It is VERY Difficult to Analyse. I have Nothing to Add.

Obey the Authorities !

Don't Criticize or Complain. C O M P L Y !

If you want 'My Take'? They have it Right, . . . .

Obey the Authorities, . . . .

and "Yes!" Dominica:
These simple Tropical Waves have 'Erika' potential, . . .

Standing By

- 40 West & African TW's
  • By Ian Martin Borde <readkrox51 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Fri, 11 Jun 2021 11:35:37 -0400
Good Day, Good Everything,
People of Paradise

The 1st. (of Significance) Tropical Wave coming from Africa
is medium-large BUT embedded in the ITCZ
with Nascent Circulation.

My Take:
Good News first,I don't see it exiting the ITCZ before 50 West.
Bad News! Because of its size,
When it reaches it will be more than 50% Hazardous.

Trinidad had I believe 3 instances of minor floods already.

BIG Public Shoutout to Isabel. I don't know 'bout you?
But Isabel keeps me Sane and even Calm during Emergencies.

GOD Bless Isabel and all Correspondents, ...

Happy May Flowers,
People of Paradise !

While surrounded by more than a Hint of Wet Season.
Let's remember today as 26 days (less than 4 weeks)
before the Official Start of The Storm / Hurricane Season.

There are ssooo many topics to talk about, . . . .
I had to come out from;
Hibernation/Self Isolation,
Scientific and Rescue Sabbatical. 

Since 2010 and the Haitian Earthquake and Tsunamis

Ok, Then !
There's, ... , COVID,
There's, ... , Vaccinations,
There's, ... , Safe Haven Tourism.

There's Earthquakes, Volcanos, Evacuations, Emigrations.
There's Smoke, Dust, Ash, Lava, Old Craters and New Vents,
There's Poisonous Gases, Liquids and Materials. Water Scarcity.
There's Communications, Security, Solidarity, Relief and Rescue.

To stop! (Distressing, what is Stressful!!!!!)
There's more than one inch of rain, floods, rough seas, rip tides

Thank GOD, nobody reported HIGH WIND, . . . ?

PS. Volcanic Ash is the Best-Known Fertilizer, ....

May God show us the Good in this.
