Update on Grace Other Developments in The Tropics

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 08 Sept 2015 – Finally in news an update on Grace, now considered a Tropical Depression…that will weaken as she heads for the Lesser Antilles. That is what weather experts are predicting as the storm continues moving west over the Atlantic at 18 miles per hour…packing winds up to 45 miles per hour.Elsewhere, there are two areas of disturbance over the Atlantic. A weak area of low pressure is located over the Northeastern Gulf of Mexico, that’s about 70 miles Southwest of Cedar Key, Florida. That system is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. This system has a near, 0% chance of formation over the next 48 hours. Also, a concentrated area of cloudiness and showers has developed over the central Atlantic about 250 miles east-southeast of Bermuda. This system has a low, 10% chance of formation. Though we have seen the formation of several storms, one after the other in recent weeks, forecasters maintain that this is a below average Hurricane season. Still, local emergency officials remind residents to be prepared, this as the country marked the seventh year anniversary of the passing of Hurricane Ike on Sunday September 6th.

The ordinance considers residents to be living in their vehicle if they use it for things like sleeping, bathing or preparing meals.The Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods Committee approved the proposal last month, sending it to the city council for a final decision.It’s a restoration of a law that was previously in place,  replacing a nearly 36-year-old ban that the council unanimously voted to repeal in February. The city had not enforced the old ban since last year, when a federal judge issued an injunction because the ban was unconstitutionally vague in how the city defined a person as living in a car.Council members and community members in favor of the revised ban said San Diego recently has been flooded with homeless. They emphasized that the goal is to encourage residents living in their vehicles to use monitored parking lots where residents can safely sleep overnight and access job training and housing assistance services.There are four safe parking lots open in the city, with a fifth set to open in June. There also are 2,700 government-funded shelter beds available. Critics say the new law unnecessarily criminalizes homeless people.The council approved the new law 6-3 after more than three hours of debate and public testimony Tuesday at City Hall. Dissenting votes were cast by Council President Georgette Gomez and members Monica Montgomery and Chris Ward.Taking effect immediately, the law was approved as an emergency ordinance.
