Travel, Storms, etc

Heading to Mississppi tomorrow. Will probably be there for Arlene. Expected to hit Mississippi on Sunday.

June 9, 2005 | MIAMI -- Tropical Storm Arlene developed Thursday in the northwest Caribbean Sea, edging closer to western Cuba as the Atlantic hurricane season's first named storm.

Arlene strengthened from a tropical depression that formed Wednesday. By Thursday morning, it had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph.

At 8 a.m. EDT, the storm's center was about 190 miles south-southeast of the western tip of Cuba. It was moving north at about 8 mph, and this motion could bring the storm's center near western Cuba as early as Thursday night, forecasters said.

The Cuban government has issued a tropical storm watch for the western province of Pinar Del Rio to the capital of Havana.
