    Comments should be closed for this Weather column. They obviously are being ignored and are becoming more and more unrelated to the current subject.

    My comment dates from six days ago and refers to a weather map that at the time was posted in error, I assume by the Dominica Meteorological Service .

    The weather has moved on since then.

    The image that illustrates this news release is of Tropical Storm Marco, which is currently heading towards the Gulf of Mexico, and not Tropical Storm Laura which is currently off the Dominican Republic.

      Roger, my information is that Marco is no more, but Laura will make land fall tomorrow night on the Louisiana -Texas border with hurricane force winds. Evacuation is in place for Galveston and part Arthur.
      This rain in Dominica is from some other weather activity/system.

        We must be a little more supportive and fair in our comments. How is “de mete office making it worst”
        The met office is doing a great job. They have no satellite or drone to locate weather systems and they a like 99% in their predictions.
        They are doing a fantastic job.

      Hey Roger, Laura made landfall on the coast of Louisiana last night. There are all kinds of reports on ABC 13 tv about death and destruction. Just thought you might want to know.
