ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – The National Hurricane Centre’s (NHC) latest advisory, has reduced the strength of Hurricane ‘Florence’ while two Disturbances in the Eastern Atlantic continue to develop.

As such, residents and visitors are being advised to monitor both systems (Disturbance 1 and 2) as both have the potential of reaching the Caribbean.

This, according to a public statement, released today, September 7, 2018, by the Virgin Islands' (VI) Department of Disaster Management (DDM)

‘Florence,’ according to NHC was at 5:00 AM today, approximately 930 miles East North East of the VI.

Meanwhile, as it relates to the tropical disturbances being monitored, DDM, notes the first of weather systems being monitored has demonstrated a 90 percent chance of development.

Forecasters continue to predict that if it did reach the eastern Caribbean, it would not do so until late next week.

The second weather system—Disturbance 2—is also forecast at a 90 percent chance of development. Forecasters predict that this system however, may become a tropical storm by the time it moves over the southern Cape Verde Islands, on Sunday morning—September 9, 2018

    I love the Good Book - always speak the truth - Matthew 24: 7, 8. What has been prophesied will without fail take place.
