News Americas, MIAMI, FL, Tues, Oct. 6, 2020: Hurricane Delta spared the Cayman Islands today but now moves on towards the Yucatan Peninsula as a category four hurricane.

The National Hazard Management Council in CI officially issued the all-clear for all three of the Cayman Islands at 2:30 p.m. today.

Hurricane Delta strengthened to a Category 4 storm Tuesday morning and passed closest to Cayman between 8 am and 9 am.
