ROAD TOWN, Tortola VI – The Virgin Islands Department of Disaster Management (DDM) in a September 12, 2020, update says while it is monitoring a number of disturbances in the region, Disturbance 2 is the main focus for the Caribbean at this period.

“Disturbance 2 is located near 12N, 30W or approximately 2327 miles from the British Virgin Islands. It is moving west near 15 mph. The forecast confidence in both the future intensity and track is low due to potential complex interaction with the new disturbance to its east.”

According to the DDM, Forecasters think that the disturbance will track west through about Tuesday or Wednesday. By then, it may decelerate and beyond then, the forecast becomes uncertain.

Chances of development remain High

“It may continue westward or track more to the north. It is too early to determine whether or not it will impact the Caribbean. The chance of development remains very high. However, there is a slight chance that Disturbance 3 could become dominant enough to limit the development potential of Disturbance 2. The chance of development is 90 per cent.”

The DDM says that while the disturbance is no threat to the Virgin Islands at this time, it will continue to monitor and provide updates of any changes.

“Persons are encouraged to have plans ready if needed and continue to monitor the Atlantic as multiple waves will continue to move off the West Coast of Africa for the rest of the season,” the Department said.

      @Jan you must be an idiot. The whole Caribbean is blessed, but nature must take it's course. I pray that the whole region is protected from any type of disasters and from fools like you .in the name of Jesus. Amen..

      I so wish when you blogged it was mandatory to print your full name and a picture so that all BVIslanders and persons from the other islands could see the political affiliate behind these “island people” blogs.

      It’s sad that you are using this to gain power and votes and in the process causing division and hate.

      It’s sickening and your plight needs to stop.

      I call on VINO and all other news sites to ban and no longer publish this “island/down island people” boo tactic being used for political gain.

    Why the cone always looks larger than other weather maps to appear like we would be affected when others show different?
