First Tropical Weather makes Appearance

A tropical low pressure weather system will bring clouds, rain, and strong breezes to the central Southern Islands. The month of May is earlier than typical, but this system will none the less drop welcome rain on the fruit orchards of Pup Town, where the island famous Sunrise Mangos are beginning to ripen. It is not expected to develop into a damaging cyclone at this time. Rainfall has been below average this spring. People have been trucking water to nearly empty cisterns on Marlberry Cay. On Dog Island, the water table is at near record lows, and some homes have not been able to pump from the wells.
