I'll add today's C-19 update when it comes out after midday.

Unfortunately, today the municipality of Isla Mujeres reports another death from C-19 for a total of 11, with a total of 155 positives and 90 recovered.
On the state geoportal reporting active cases by colonia still has the data for 8/31, which I posted yesterday.
On the national map for 8/31, the municipality reports 6 suspicious and 67 negatives (and 155 confirmed with 10 deaths).

Tonight the nearly full moon rises over the Caribbean at 7:06 & the sun sets at 7:02 (over the bay...reflecting off the Caribbean clouds, usually.)


Sunday afternoon on the balcony at MVC watching boats.....this one had dolphins!! 

The Tropical Wave is expected to develop into a Tropical Depression and land downstate tomorrow, but this is subject to change & being monitored. 

The Tropical Wave moving quickly westward across the central Caribbean Sea is associated with a seemingly well-organized cluster of showers & thunderstorms. Environmental conditions are expected to become a little more conductive for development and a Tropical Depression is likely (70% chance w/i 48 hrs) to form before the system reaches Central America tomorrow night. Satellite-derived wind data from a few hours ago again showed that the system has not developed a closed surface wind circulation. However, observations from a ship south of Jamaica indicate winds are reaching gale force, and a warning has been issued accordingly. Interests that should monitor this disturbance include northern Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, and the Yucatan Peninsula.

The Ultramar passenger ferry schedule for Puerto Juarez-Isla Mujeres, starting today.

Police number to receive reports or if you have suspicions:

The municipal government continues with its reforestation campaign, both on the island and in the Continental Zone, to promote environmental protection and conservation. So far, more than 500 plants, including chit palms and coco palms, have been planted, which were provided by hotels as part of the Environmental obligations. Locations where they have been planted on the island include the central medians of Rueda Medina downtown, and in La Gloria at Paseo de las Aves and Isla Contoy Avenue. Pruning and maintenance work is also being done in the green areas throughout the municipality to keep them in optimal condition, said the Director of the municipal Department of the Environment and Ecology, Nivardo Fernandez Martinez. Residents are encouraged to contribute in the care of these plants and to keep the streets clean by avoiding littering and complying with the trash collection schedule.

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.)
