Storm Downgraded

September 6, 2001
Cruisers heading out this weekend for sea voyages: there’s good news. Tropical Storm Erin has been downgraded to a tropical depression (wind speeds around 35 m.p.h.) and the National Weather Service is no longer monitoring the storm. Still, it might be a good idea to pack a couple of sea sickness remedies -- even 35 m.p.h. winds can make for a rocky sailing. Ironically, this season, with no hurricanes yet in the Atlantic, is the 4th latest start in 50 years.
