GHMS would like to notify you of a potential storm threat. At this time, the disturbance in the Atlantic is not a named stormed. At anytime it could develop into a tropical depression or storm which will bring some wind and heavy rains to South Florida. We will be monitoring the storm closely over the next few days and communicate any changes. As a precautionary measure, we have already had a staff meeting to go over all hurricane procedures for our properties.
A developing tropical storm, moving just north of the large islands of the Caribbean, will take aim at the Bahamas and southern Florida into this weekend.
The disturbance, currently dubbed 99L, will continue to move along a west-northwest path.
“We expect 99L to become Tropical Depression Eight and then Tropical Storm Hermine at any time over the next few days,” according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski.
The disturbance has produced tropical storm-force wind gusts between 40 and 50 mph in heavy squalls over some of the northern Caribbean islands and surrounding waters since Wednesday. The storm is currently about 750 miles southeast of Miami. In absence of official designation, clusters of intense thunderstorms and rain will continue in the vicinity of 99L.
