Tropical Update: Isaac, Joyce, and 97L

Isaac & Joyce

This post will most likely be the last update on Isaac and Joyce, as both systems will no longer be a direct threat to the Bahamas. As I previously mentioned, the seas may be a little rough with Isaac to the west and Joyce to the east. As you are heading to Port Canaveral for today’s 5-Night on the Disney Dream it may be a good idea to stop for some anti-emetics, or Sea-Bands just in case.
