first_img Share Share LifestyleLocalNews Tropical Wave Expected from Tonight Followed by Second Saharan Dust Cloud by: – June 24, 2020 Sharing is caring! Tweetcenter_img Just as the skies over Dominica clear from a cloud of Saharan dust, the meteorological service here has said that a tropical wave inclusive of thunderstorms will drench the island from this evening into tomorrow and will be followed by a second plume of dust.The more southern islands of the Lesser Antilles are predicted to get most of the rain with a gradual clearing by late Friday.Senior Meteorological Officer, Marshall Alexander says the return of the dust haze from the largest subtropical desert on earth will come on the heels of the tropical wave.It will be accompanied by increased wind and rough sea conditions, particularly on the east coast.Normally, hundreds of millions of tons of dust are picked up from the deserts of Africa and blown across the Atlantic Ocean each year. That dust helps build beaches in the Caribbean and fertilizes soils in the Amazon. It can also affect air quality in north and South America.The air quality and visibility will be poor when the second dust cloud enters the local atmosphere and individuals with sensitivities should stay inside as much as possible.Seafarers without GPS equipment should keep boats docked.An alert from the Health Promotion Unit on Monday advised people with respiratory illnesses to take the necessary precautions to minimize complications:The Unit encourages the use of face masks, frequent cleaning of surface areas with a wet cloth, and adequate water consumption.Meanwhile, the fourth named storm of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season, Tropical Storm Dolly, formed over the north Atlantic yesterday but this system does not pose any threat to Dominica. 3242 Views   no discussions Sharelast_img read more

Buffon confident he can still make difference as Juventus draw with AC Milan

first_img Loading… “The reason I am still playing is that I believe I can perform at a high level,” he told Rai Sport after last night’s 1-1 Coppa Italia first-leg draw at AC Milan. “There are situations, such as this return to Juve, that give me even more motivation, because there are interpersonal relationships that make my responsibility and determination feel even stronger. “I liked our passing, as we rediscovered the fluidity in our movement, but didn’t create as much in the final third. The 1-1 draw is a good result, considering how things were going, even if it’s not a scoreline that allows you to rest easy for the second leg.”Advertisement Gigi Buffon is confident he can still make a difference at Juventus. The 42-year-old goalkeeper has seen plenty of first-team action this season.center_img He continued: “Ronaldo is incredible. I will admit, one of the reasons I returned to Juventus was the opportunity to play and train with Cristiano Ronaldo and every day is a revelation.” As a sign of his longevity, Buffon left San Siro with Daniel Maldini’s jersey.
