Posted in: Regional News by volderine | 12 September 2018 | 3088


    A Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for Dominica, Guadeloupe and Martinique, and a Tropical Storm Watch for Antigua/Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts/Nevis, Saba and St. Eustatius.  However, forecasters say  Tropical Storm Isaac’s maximum sustained winds have decreased from 75 to about 60 mph (95 km/h) and further gradual weakening is expected during the next few days.

    The latest Advisory puts Isaac’s centre at 15.1 North, 55.7 West or 370 miles  East of Dominica. It is moving towards the West at 21 mph (28 km/h) and this path should take it across the island chain and into the Caribbean sea on Thursday.

    Forecasters expect Isaac to produce between two and four inches of rainfall across Dominica, Martinique and Guadeloupe and up to one inch in the remaining Windward and the Leeward Islands. The rainfall may cause flash flooding.
