TROPICAL WAVE EAST-SOUTHEAST OF THE WINDWARD ISLANDS SHOWS SIGNS OF DEVELOPMENT

September 26, 20161578Views

The Department of Disaster Management (DDM) is monitoring a tropical wave located 950 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands.

As of 2:00p.m. Forecasters have said showers and thunderstorms associated with the tropical wave have increased and have become slightly better organised since yesterday.

Environmental conditions remain conducive for development, and a tropical depression is likely to form during the next day or two while the system moves westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph.

At its present location, the tropical wave does not pose any significant threat to the British Virgin Islands (BVI). However, residents should continue to monitor the development of the system for any sudden change in movement and be ready to make preparations in the event the Virgin Islands were to be affected.

The Department of Disaster Management will continue to monitor the systems and advise the public accordingly. Please visit our websiteatwww.bviddm.com and subscribe for updates or join us on Facebookatwww.facebook.com/bvi.ddm/
