Weather Report: Tropical Storm Isaac still expected to affect Barbados

Weather Report: Tropical Storm Isaac still expected to affect Barbados”

Threatening the Caribbean islands, Tropical Storm Isaac is moving west toward the Lesser Antilles by Thursday.

But Isaac, which at one point was one of a trio of hurricanes swirling in the Atlantic alongside killer storm Hurricane Florence, and Hurricane Helene, is not completely done.

The centre of Isaac passed between Martinique and Dominica with maximum sustained winds of about 45 miles per hour.

Storm Surge Inundation: Up to 2 to 4 feet of inundation is possible in portions of the Storm Surge Watch area Friday into Saturday.

"We do not anticipate experiencing any tropical storm or hurricane force winds, but we could experience rain and will be placed under a flash flood watch", said Governor Kenneth Mapp in a release issued late Thursday.

The public is encouraged to continue monitoring the Met Office via its social media accounts and website at www.metoffice.gov.tt for updates.

At 2:00 pm, today, Thursday, September 13, Isaac was located at 14.9N 62.5W or about 80 miles or 130 km West-South-West of Dominica or about 240 miles or 385 km South-East of St. Croix. It will continue to move to the west and away from the V.I. during the overnight hours.

This week marks the midway point of the Atlantic hurricane season, when storm activity has historically peaked.

"According to the IPMA's forecast, it is likely that the western islands [Flores and Corvo] should begin to feel the effects of the storm from Saturday afternoon". Gradual weakening is forecast during the next few days.

STORM SURGE: The combination of a risky storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline.

States of emergency were declared in the Carolinas; Virginia; Washington, DC; and Maryland, where some coastal areas are still recovering from summer storms. Heavy rain and winds from Olivia downed trees, knocked out power and prompted evacuations of several homes on Hawaii's Maui island but spared the state widespread damage Wednesday.
