Kennedy was the President of the United States…1961.  The time before that Benjamin Harrison was in the White House…1892.  The ten islands that make up the Cape Verdes are located very close to a hurricane breeding ground, but you may find it a little surprising that the island country off the coast of West Africa doesn’t get many hurricanes.  Detailed 7 Day  » Current Conditions » Radar » Severe Weather » Closings » Signup for Alerts & Closings » ReportIt! » Severe Weather » Ocean » “Fred”…
