Tropical storm Tammy have strengthened overnight.  Tammy could potentially impact the Virgin Islands with heavy rainfall over the weekend.  Rainfall could accumulate up to 4 inches over the period. The rainfall could possible cause flooding in urban areas.

Based on the current forecast, Tammy is expected to pass just east of the Virgin Islands. Nonetheless, there still remains some level of uncertainty as it relates to the intensity and tracking. As a result, the Department of Disaster Management encourages residents to keep monitoring this system as it approaches the territory.
