Good day to all.

I wish to share some information about Hurricane Tammy.

At this time, Tammy is forecast to pass to the east of our islands late tomorrow or Sunday, but at a close enough distance that we may experience some gusty winds and showers throughout the weekend. Already, the seas are rough and we are under a high surf advisory due to the risk of high surf and rip currents.
