Hurricane Paloma

The majority of the models have Paloma traversing Cuba then tracking Northeast. At this point, we do not see this system being a threat to the United States, other than interests in the Bahamas.

As always, we will monitor this system and update as needed.

Tropical Storm: ‘Paloma’

Tropical Storm Paloma developed over the past 36 hours from a tropical depression in the western Caribbean. The storm is forecast to make Hurricane status sometime on Friday. The storm will cross central Cuba to the northeast on Sunday and Monday and will also affect the Bahamas and south Florida.

Persons in the Florida Keys and the southern counties in Florida or who plan on visiting those areas are being asked to watch the progress of this storm carefully. We will post additional information as it becomes available.
