Posted in: Regional News by volderine | 26 September 2018 | 2432


    Barbados, Saint Lucia, Dominica, Martinique and Guadeloupe are under a Tropical Storm Warning and St. Vincent and the Grenadines under a Tropical Storm Watch as Tropical Storm Kirk churns its way towards the Eastern Caribbean.

    Kirk which was earlier this week downgraded to a Tropical depression has regained strength and is currently packing winds of 45 miles-per-hour (75 km/h). At 11:00 a.m. it was located near 12.1 North, 54.3 West or 360 miles (575 km) East of Barbados.

    Forecasters expect Kirk to follow a westward to west-north-westward direction, and on this track it will pass Barbados and the northern Windward Islands by Thursday afternoon and into the Caribbean sea by Friday morning.
