ODM calls on population to monitor weather reports as disturbance approaches islands

The Department of Disaster Management (ODM) is calling on the population to monitor a Tropical Wave (TW) associated with a Low Pressure system #94, which on Monday has the potential to become a tropical storm within the next 48 hours.


The National Hurricane Center out of Miami says that interests in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of the disturbance which is forecasted to reach the Leeward Islands on Wednesday.

The system on Monday afternoon was located approximately over 1000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles out in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean.

The disturbance is moving very fast at 20 to 25 miles per hour.

The ODM will be closely monitoring this system for possible further development.
