ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) is currently monitoring four disturbances in the Atlantic.

Disturbance 1 and 2 are located east of the Lesser Antilles; disturbance 3 is just east of Belize and disturbance 4 is southeast of Bermuda.

According to the Department of Disaster Management (DDM), all are showing signs of development.

It said Disturbance 1 may develop into a depression possibly within the next 48 hours and disturbance 2 as it stands has the possibility to develop into a depression in about 5 days.

Another disturbance, according to the DDM, is expected to move off the Coast of West Africa and when this occurs, forecast models are indicating the possibility for rapid development.

No threat to VI @ this point- DDM

“At this point none of the disturbances are a threat to the British Virgin Islands; however, there continues to be a high level of uncertainty in the track of these disturbances and for this reason we should continue to monitor them closely.”

The NHC and other forecasting agencies have also indicated that going forward we will see an increase in the number of disturbances moving off the African coast with development potential.

The DDM said it will continue to monitor the disturbances and provide updates accordingly.

    The forecast tracks of these disturbances go nowhere near us. Stop trying to stir up fear.
