POND ISLAND-The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is closely monitoring the progress of Tropical Storm Beryl.

It is forecast to encounter the wind shear and deplete near the eastern islands of the Caribbean before reaching land.

This is the second named storm of the 2018 hurricane season. "It would be best if they are completed by June 1st at the start of hurricane season. But, quiet times like this where there are no storms threatening the Gulf Coast are also great times to prepare in a stress-free environment".
