Right when it seemed like hurricane season was about to end with no major systems hitting Saint Martin, it appears that a late-season storm is tracking towards the island.
Tropical Storm Tammy is currently moving west at 23 miles per hour, a pretty quick pace that may help lessen damage to the islands if it continues. The latest report from the National Hurricane Center is measuring maximum sustained winds at 40 mph.
For now, this is a heads-up for those on the island, heading to the island (like the guy I ran into today in the Seattle airport with an SXM hat on), or with loved ones on the island. This isn’t anything close to a major hurricane, but it is something to be aware of and continue monitoring.
