Tropical Storm 'Dennis' has been born.
Just to the west of Tobago ... 2005.07.05.
I think I will call him 'Dirty Den' in recognition of the sleepless nights he has given me as I have tracked him over the last 8 days since Wave formation off the west Coast of Africa and the havoc he has caused over Tobago, Barbados, Grenada and the Dutch Antilles in the last few days ...
... not to mention the havoc he could cause around Jamaica and Cuba towards the weekend.
Dirty Den needs watching ... this could be the first significant hurricane of the season.
Also note that this is the earliest point in any season in recorded history when as many as 4 Tropical Waves have been active in and around the Caribbean at the same time ...
Let us hope that this trend does not continue.
