Tropical Storm Ida Fizzles As T.D. 9 Dies


MIAMI – Tropical Storm Ida remains very far away in the Central Atlantic Ocean. Tropical Depression 9, meanwhile, has dissipated to a remnant low.

Ida may strengthen a bit through the next few days as it moves a little.

We’re also watching a low off the coast of the Carolinas that’s moving away from the coast.

None of the systems are a threat to land.

John McCarthy

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
