A tropical depression located east of Dominica and the Windward Islands could become a tropical storm later on Friday, the Dominica Met Office has said.

At 5 am the center of Tropical Depression Seven was located near latitude 13.6 north…longitude 47.2 west or about 930 miles or 1,495 km east of the Windward Islands.

The depression is moving toward the west near 20 mph or 32 km/h and this general motion is expected to continue for the next 48 hours.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph or 55 km/h with higher gusts. Some strengthening is expected during the next 48 hours.

Interests in Dominica and the rest of the Windward Islands should monitor the progress of this system as it is expected to approach the Lesser Antilles by late Saturday into Sunday, the Met Office said.

      If God is in control, perhaps he could stop sending them in the first place ?

    That’s the only time we know God. In times of storms, hurricanes and most of all when something bad is happening to us or when we are in a bad situation. Thats shouldn’t be we must always call upon him in good or bad.

    send the hurricane to wash away the evil from this land… the people of Dominica are so corrupt and in time of danger always easy to call upon god!! no one can escape the wrath of god and its time we dominicans need to start fearing god everyday instead of a day when a storm forms!!

      When the hurricane come to wash away evil…it can wash away people and homes…why would one wish for such, and then talk about God at the same time…how about offering up a prayer for the country.

      Let he who is without sin cast the first stone my friend. If we believe our friends, neighbors, countryment are corrupt, let us put an arm around their shoulder and say brother (or sister), I love you. God loves us both even more. Let us do him proud.’ Let us then be a follower of theSaviour who first loved us, an example of forgiveness, virtue, charity instead of fault-finding, bickering and backbiting. One Love. Peace to all my neighbors, even those who do not care for me.
