Tropical storm warning expanded to US northeast

Tropical storm warning expanded to US northeast”

In their 11 a.m. It had winds of 160 miles per hour. Top of my list is the intensity forecast because following the path of Irma the cooler water underneath has come up so it may be good to reduce some warmer water from helping maintain Maria; however, it's not clear how much of a factor this may be.

Dominican Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit warned residents to be especially cautious.

What else should I know about the hurricane? Parts of Puerto Rico could see up to 25 inches (64 cm) of rain, it said. It was at Category 3 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale and is expected to strengthen later Monday. Meanwhile, a hurricane warning has been sent out to people living in Dominica and Guadeloupe.

In Puerto Rico, about 46,000 people were without electricity and 6,000 were without drinking water from Hurricane Irma, which passed near the island but did not make direct landfall.

The supplies are scheduled to arrive in Puerto Rico when the port reopens after the storm hits, but more supplies may be needed once the damaged is assessed.

Dominica is a small island with a population of almost 74,000 about halfway between Puerto Rico and Trinidad and Tobago, according to the CIA World Factbook.

This storm has rapidly intensified which is a potentially disastrous scenario for the islands it will sweep across. The storm is likely to hit the island directly on Wednesday morning, as a Category 4 or Category 5 storm.

The governor ordered evacuations ahead of deteriorating conditions. Gov. Ricardo Rossello has been leading preparations in the US territory. There are still almost 200 people in shelters from Hurricane Irma. A tropical storm watch means tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, within 48 hours.

"We have a culture of risk, we know what needs to be done", she said. "This is going to be a catastrophic event".

Forecasts said Maria could bring up to 18 inches of rain to Puerto Rico.

"It is time to seek refuge with a family member, friend, or move to a state shelter because rescuers will not go out and risk their lives once winds reach 50 miles per hour".

He said: "everyone in Florida should take a few minutes today to plan JUST IN CASE find ourselves with threat from a Hurricane Maria later this week".

East Island Excursions, which takes people on snorkeling trips, has made about 40 trips in the past week, taking residents of St. John to Puerto Rico.

Lee, the third storm in the Atlantic, fizzled from a tropical storm to a tropical depression Sunday, the hurricane center said.

By Monday night or Tuesday, Hurricane Maria may affect Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts, Nevis, Montserrat, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Maarten, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy and Anguilla, according to the NHC.

The French government issued a Hurricane Warning for Martinique.
