Tropical Storm Warning In Florida

The National Hurricane Center has issued tropical storm warnings across the southern half of the Florida Peninsula and the Keys.

Tropical Storm Alex or a tropical depression is expected to bring heavy rain and gusty winds to those areas into the weekend.

“The system is expected to develop a well-defined center and become a tropical storm later today, and some slight strengthening is possible while it approaches Florida” on Friday and Friday night, the hurricane center said.

A tropical storm warning is in effect Friday morning for the entire southern half of the Florida Peninsula, including Miami, Sarasota, the Florida Keys, West Palm Beach, Melbourne, Dry Tortuga, Florida Bay and Lake Okeechobee, as well as along Florida’s west coast, south of the middle of Longboat Key to Englewood, and the state’s east coast, south of the Volusia-Brevard county line to Card Sound Bridge.

Tropical storm warnings have also been issued in western Cuba and the northwestern Bahamas.

Due to forecasted tropical depression in Florida, Delta Airlines issued a travel waiver for its passengers who may be impacted on travels scheduled for June 3 and 4.

With this, the fare difference for customers will be waived when rebooked travel occurs on or before June 7, the same cabin of service as originally booked, Delta said in a press release.

If travel is rebooked after June 7, any difference in fare between the original ticket and the new ticket will be collected at the time of booking.

Elevate Outdoor Recalls Backcountry Access Avalanche Transceivers

Elevate Outdoor Collective has recalled about 9,000 Backcountry Access Avalanche Transceivers due to risk of loss of emergency communications.

According to Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website, the toggle switch can separate from the transceiver, and prevent the transceiver from switching to search mode, making it difficult to locate a skier in an avalanche, which can result in severe bodily harm or death if a skier is buried under snow.

The recall involves the Backcountry Access Tracker4 Avalanche Transceiver sold in yellow and black. The transceiver has a digital screen on the front and is about five inches long and three inches wide. Only the transceivers with serial numbers beginning with 21H05 or 21H06 are affected by this recall.

The recalled products were sold at REI, Evo, Cripple Creek Backcountry and other specialty stores nationwide and online at,,, and specialty websites from July 2021 through February 2022 for about $390.

The company said it has received 14 reports of broken toggle switches, however, no injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Tracker4 Avalanche Transceiver and contact Backcountry Access to receive a prepaid shipping label to return the recalled transceiver for a free replacement transceiver.

Oil Futures Settle Sharply Higher Despite OPEC+ Output Increase

Crude oil prices climbed higher on Friday amid expectations of increased demand even as the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies decided to increase output.

Data showing a stronger than expected increase in U.S. non-farm payroll employment in the month of May also contributed to the increase in oil prices.

West Texas Intermediate Crude oil futures for July ended higher by $2.00 or about 1.7% at $118.87 a barrel.

Brent crude futures were up $2.72 or 2.3% at $120.33 a barrel a little while ago.

Saudi Arabia and other OPEC+ states agreed to increase oil production to offset Russian output losses because of Western sanctions.

The oil exporters’ cartel said on Thursday that it would increase supply by 648,000 barrels per day in July and August, over 200,000 barrels per day more than scheduled under a supply agreement with other producers, including Russia, known as OPEC+.

Analysts are of the view that OPEC+ is still likely to supply considerably less oil to the market than agreed.

Data from U.S. Energy Information Administration on Thursday showed crude stockpiles fell by 5.1 million barrels last week. Gasoline inventories also feel last week.

Meanwhile, the overall U.S. rig count remained unchanged at 727 this week, according to the latest tally from Baker Hughes Co.
