At 6pm GMT today, the tropical cyclone in the Caribbean was found to be a tropical storm (Gustav), with winds of 60 mph. The storm will head northwest towards Haiti, and make landfall on the southwestern peninsula as a category 1 hurricane, with winds of at least 75 mph.

  1. So this is what hurricane season is!

  2. Those people in Cuba & Haiti really get slammed!  I bet they don't know that we don't get hurricanes in Washington.  Linda
