Tropical Storm Kirk Revives

Tropical Storm Kirk Revives

"We don't believe Cayman will be impacted with the winds associated with Tropical Storm Kirk, but we do expect moisture", Mr. Miller said.

The Miami-based National Hurricane Centre, in its latest advisory, said the centre of Tropical Storm Kirk was located near latitude 13.6 North, longitude 58.7 West. Kirk was moving west at 18 miles per hour. In the National Hurricane Center's 8am bulletin the storm was headed towards the northern Windward Islands and expected to approach Barbados tomorrow.

A hurricane is a tropical cyclone that has maximum sustained surface winds of 74 miles per hour or greater.

On the forecast track, the center of Kirk will move across the Lesser Antilles within the tropical storm warning area Thursday or Thursday evening. Its maximum sustained winds were 45 miles per hour. Because hurricane preparedness activities become hard once winds reach tropical storm force, the Warning is issued 36 hours in advance of the onset of tropical storm force winds.


Unlike other countries such as Barbados, St Lucia, and St Vincent & the Grenadines, no tropical storm Warnings or Watches has been issued for the BVI.

Hazard Management Cayman Islands tweeted about the storm Wednesday morning, saying it was "currently a low threat" to the Cayman Islands. Hurricane center forecasters are giving it a 50 percent chance of development over the next 48 hours.

The storm is expected to be ripped apart by stronger wind shears in the Caribbean Sea this weekend. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by Thursday afternoon.

Kirk is expected to produce total rainfall of 4 to 6 inches with higher totals of 10 inches across portions of the Lesser Antilles.
