    Welcome back. Our first hurricane of the 2015 season has emerged.

    Hurricane Danny has jumped up as a small, unpredictable, but fairly strong (for the moment) Category 2 hurricane. It has been called mini, micro, and a tiny hurricane, but the small size also makes it more difficult than normal to apply the tracking models to it.

    Let’s keep our many friends, family, and patients in mind in the Caribbean as they prepare for a potentially messy week. A small but wet storm will actually be welcome in the islands as many have been suffering drought conditions this year, particularly Puerto Rico. The Virgin Islands will be first up, and we will be thinking of our colleagues at Schneider Regional Hospital in St. Thomas.

    Predictions are that this small storm is likely to weaken over the next few days, and may drop below hurricane strength over the weekend. I expect it not to be a factor for us here in South Florida, but they call it unpredictable for a reason. As the first storm of another quiet season, the media attention will be heightened, and unnecessarily increase anxiety in the community.

    Review your plans for both work and home, but expect it to be business as usual for Baptist Health South Florida.
