ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The National Hurricane Centre continues to monitor the remnants of Tropical Storm Kirk as it is showing signs of redevelopment.

This, according to a statement issued by the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) today, September, 25, 2018, which indicated that the remnants of ‘Kirk’ are located approximately 1100 miles east of the Windward Islands moving West at 25 mph.

According to the DDM’s missive, the system “is showing signs of redevelopment with heavy shower and thunderstorm activity in addition to gusty winds in the northern quadrant.

The National Hurricane Centre has since indicated that the weather system demonstrates a 60 per cent chance of redevelopment in 48 hours.

DDM said forecasters’ think the system will produce gusty winds and heavy showers and thunderstorms to the Leeward Islands and Windward Islands as it moves across the area.

Forecasters now believe that the system will have minimal effects on the Virgin Islands but will continue to monitor its progression.

Meanwhile, providing an update on the remnants of Tropical Depression 11, DDM said, conditions exist to produce showers and thunderstorms today.

    We just have to keep praying daily to prevent any storms from coming our way.
    We cannot afford any right now or for the next 20 yrs or so to come.

      Next 20yrs is every ones wish.. Having said that the recovery process may then move from slow marching to crawling... Maybe the Potential of a storm would speed out the recovery process.. I just heard on the news from down island talking about the slow recovery in the BVI.. Elm o Stoutt high and Buloo store are 2 two of the biggest soars in Town... How would they cope under a minor storm.. God forbid we get a major One..
