The tropics are beginning to heat up, now that hurricane season is underway.A small but well-defined tropical disturbance is located a few hundred miles east of the southern Caribbean islands. The upper-level winds are said to not be conducive for significant development.However, disorganized disturbances of this type, technically called tropical waves, typically lead to the development of most strong hurricanes later in the storm season.It appears that this particular system will not be able to develop, but will simply become part of a surge in moisture that will affect South Florida early next week.Courtesy: National Hurricane CenterMost June tropical storms, as well as the occasional hurricane, develop in the western Caribbean or in the Gulf of Mexico, where this one is going.A dip in the jet stream is coming along that should prevent any development.That dip will tear apart the disturbance while pulling it north.The resulting moisture is forecast to come over or very near South Florida, leading to more rain in our forecast for early next week.No other tropical development is expected into next week.
Authorities in St. Lucie County have issued a mandate requiring the public to wear face coverings while in public places.The emergency order was established Monday after health officials identified 3,061 cases of COVID-19 in the area.“Our numbers have continually increased,” said Health Director for St. Lucie County Clint Spreber. “Protection increases when all people are wearing face coverings.”Under the order, those in the area are required to wear face coverings in all public buildings and businesses, as well as in outdoor areas when social distancing cannot be observed.Face mask must also be worn at indoor and outdoor restaurants at all times except for when “actively consuming food and beverages.”The mandate does not apply to children under the age of two or to those with severe medical conditions or disabilities that prevent them from wearing a mask.The mandate will remain in place for the next 30 days. Those who do not obey the order will be subjected to fines up to $125.
Submitted by Hoddle & AssociatesRun with a Soldier honors service men and women and was conceived and planned by Olympia native Brian Hoddle.November 8 and 9, 2014 has been declared National Run with A Soldier Day in America, by USA Track and Field, the national governing body for track and field, running and race walking in America. Locally, The Evergreen State College has decided to host a 5K on November 9, 2014 on their Olympia, campus where the public can run/walk right along with soldiers who are active or retired. This is a great event to show our support for our military men and women locally and is just 1 months away. Click here for more information. Bryan Hoddle of Olympia, a Tenino Middle School Teacher, having taught 33 years in the State of Washington, is spearheading the effort as the National Chairman to bring this event, to not only the Olympia area, but also nationwide. Bryan was the 2004 Head Coach for the USA Paralympic Track and Field Team, a 2013 Runners World Hero of the Year and he was also honored by the Washington State House of Representatives on February 11, 2014 for his work with disabled athletes and soldiers returning from combat in the Middle East. He currently serves as Vice Chair for the Invictus Foundation, a foundation to help heal the invisible wounds of war. He has traveled back east 15 times helping our wounded men and women.Our soldiers need our help. Estimates say there are over 350,000 soldiers coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan alone with some form of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), not to mention the soldiers returning as amputees, blind, or paralyzed as well as soldiers dealing with PTSD. We need to be proactive in whatever way we can to help our heroes. Run with a Soldier Day is one huge way to help our soldiers and anyone can join in.For more information contact Cherie Mortensen at [email protected] or 812.360.6533. Or visit Bryan’s web page here.
