Tropical Storms – Roundup of Tropical Storms:
In the Eastern Pacific Ocean: Tropical Storm 09e (Howard), located approximately 875 nm south-southeast of San Diego, is tracking northwestward at 12 knots.
Senegal – At least one person was killed and one severely wounded after torrential rain caused intense flooding in Senegal’s capital, Dakar, on Friday. Unusually heavy downpours hit the city for the second time in less than a month, sending brown, knee-deep water gushing down streets and grid-locking traffic. Flooding is a regular occurrence during this period in Dakar, but deaths are relatively rare, particularly in more well-off parts of the capital. Senegal is a semi-arid country where sandy roads and flat-roofed houses are poorly equipped for rain.
