In less than 24, Hurricane Fiona intensified into a Category 1 hurricane before it reached Puerto Rico today.

It seems that not much longer since we breathed a sigh of relief that Hurricane Irma had passed and diverted itself from our shoreline that Hurricane Maria is now close on its heels. Quickly approaching and forecasted to be a much closer impact, we bring you the following news and updates about the storm:
Hurricane Irma will begin in the Leeward Islands and over the next few days make its way to the northern coast of the Dominican Republic. Currently a category 3 hurricane, reports indicate it may increase to a category 4 by tomorrow. Maximum sustained winds have reached 115mph, but could be as much as 140mph by […]
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on newly formed Tropical Depression number seven, which IF she develops into a Tropical Storm, will go by the name of “Grace”.
After a complete an utter lack of tropical depressions, tropical storms, hurricanes and indeed rain throughout this entire hurricane season, we did not see this coming. So it may surprise you to know that Tropical Storm Gonzalo is threatening to bring some rather unpleasant weather to the Dominican Republic by Tuesday/Wednesday.
While it may not have felt like it, the last 6 months has been “hurricane season” in the Dominican Republic, and today Saturday November the 30th marks the official end of this rainy, windy season! Yippeee!

So this morning as we wake up to a serene […]
The “curse” of mid-August strikes again! Every year on the 15th of August (give or take a few days), the “peak” hurricane season gets underway.
