A quiet hurricane season ended Monday with 11 named storms for the year, four of which reached hurricane strength. None had major effects on the Cayman Islands.
A tropical wave and the remnants of Tropical Storm Erika combined to produce the stormy weather that hit Grand Cayman Monday night and Tuesday morning.
Hurricane Fred moved through the Cape Verde islands in the Atlantic Ocean on Monday and will continue to affect the nation through early Tuesday morning.
Severe weather is predicted to affect the Cayman Islands over the next
24-36 hours, according to the Cayman Islands National Weather Service.
Tropical Storm Erika is not expected to come near the Cayman Islands, but it could interrupt air travel for those heading to Miami or London through the Bahamas.
