Late-Season Tropical Storm Tammy Tracking Towards Leeward Islands, Saint Martin

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.

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited to celebrate my 40th birthday in May of 2009. Since then, I've spent most birthdays there, and have visited countless other times getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website that I started to support humanitarian relief efforts following Hurricane Irma. There was no plan, it just evolved as I witnessed the devastation that Irma caused the island and the huge need to communicate and disseminate information about what had happened and how people could help support this island and its people.
