  Here's the webcam LINK, which also has time lapse of the past 24 hours.

It's still too early to tell whether 95L will travel west toward the Lesser Antilles & the Caribbean or go north into the Atlantic. There's a discussion here that begins at 12:50 on the video.

    I'll add the midday C-19 report after it's published.  

 Today the municipality of Isla Mujeres reports six more cases for a total of 177, with 12 deaths and 123 recovered.
On the state Geoportal for 9/11, 26 active cases by colonia are reported as: La Gloria-6, Salina Chica-3, Caridad del Cobre-3, Guadalupana-3, Ampl la Gloria-2, Mireaflores-2, Canotal-2, Sac Bajo-2, 23 de Noviembre-1, Downtown-1, Talleres-1, and none on the mainland
    On the national map for 9/11, the municipality reports 15 suspicious and 73 negatives (and 171 confirmed with 12 deaths).

National Manatee Day was commemorated September 7th, and the state Week of the Manatee continues until the 14th. This year, activities are limited to social media where informational notes have been published about the species, to raise awareness about the importance of its protection and conservation. The municipal Director of the Environment and Ecology, Carlos Barranco Garcia, toured Dolphin Discovery of Isla Mujeres and presented a certificate recognizing their work in preserving this endangered species. (Normally, local schoolchildren take field trips to the facility to learn about manatees.)

       Reception event at Playa Centro of a beach sweeper for the ZOFEMAT (Federal Zone agency) crew, which was attended by Enrique Flores Morado the state Sargasso Strategist, by the Mayor, by (Naval) Contralmirante Enrique Flores Morado, and by the state liaison Mariana García Pérez.

       Implementing various cleaning and maintenance activities in the streets of the municipality. 2nd Informe (governmental report by the Mayor) for 2018-2021.

Turtles continue nesting in September. They nest along the eastern beaches. Tortugranja staff and volunteers gather the eggs and incubate them in the sand in a pen outside the facility. Three species nest annually in Isla Mujeres, Greens, Loggerheads, and Hawksbills.

Swimming with the whale sharks ends in mid-September. They congregate and feed on a 'buffet' of plankton and fish eggs from a type of tuna. Rays are also attracted to the feeding areas.  Photo by Tony Garcia

Wednesday, Sept. 16--Independence Day  (The Grito is read by the Mayor each year on the night of the 15th, which will presumably be done virtually this year.)
