INVEST 99L EAST NORTH EAST OF THE VIRGIN ISLANDS

August 10, 2017553Views

The Antigua & Barbuda Meteorological Services and the Department of Disaster Management is monitoring the tropical wave (Invest 99L).

Invest 99L is located a few hundred miles north east of the Virgin Islands. The system is showing slight signs of development which is expected to increase once it reaches in the vicinity of the Greater Antilles.

The system has the potential to create low level moisture across the area tonight and into the upcoming weekend. This may result in frequent passing showers as well as thunderstorm development.

The Territory is still already saturated from the previous rains and any addition could potentially worsen the conditions on the ground.

Road crews from the Public Works Department and crews from the BVI Electricity Corporation continue to work tediously to clear roadways and restore electricity across the Territory.

The DDM will continue to monitor these weather systems and provide updates when they become available.

Please continue to monitor local media stations, DDM’s website (bviddm.com) and Facebook at BVIDDM for regular updates.
