UPDATE: Little change in strength as Isaac heads to Dominica

11:00 am position and projected path of Isaac

At 11:00 am Hurricane Isaac showed little change in strength as it moves westward towards Dominica and Dominicans have been advised to prepare for its arrival.

At 11:00 am, Hurricane Isaac, was located near latitude 14.7 degrees north and longitude 43.9 degrees west or about 1,150 miles east of the Windward Islands.

Isaac is moving west at a forward speed of 14mph (22km/h) with maximum sustained winds at 75 mph or 120 km/h.

Additional strengthening is forecast during the next day or two and Isaac is expected to weaken by the middle of the week on approaching the islands.

On the forecast track, the system is expected to pass over or near to Dominica late Wednesday into Thursday. However, activity associated with the system should begin affecting Dominica by early Wednesday.

Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 10 miles or 20 km from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km).

Residents are advised to keep informed on the progress of this system and to make all necessary preparations to protect life and property.


The next update will be at 5:00 pm.

    When you’re born in this world, you’re given a ticket to the Freak Show. And When you’re born in Dominica you get a front row seat. And some of us get to sit there with notebooks… And I’m a notebook guy.”

    I swear this comment section is as unstable as Charles Manson on an acid trip. How can you talk about Mary like she is a God, seriously?? in this day and age people still going to those pagan temples and praying to a woman’s statue hoping she will carry messages to God?? come on and use your head, read the book where Jesus says “None shall come to the father except through me” then explain to me where their is any instructions in the bible telling us to pray to Mary at all. OMG! YOU DEFENDERS OF THIS PAGAN CATHOLICISMS NEED HELP!! I cant wait for this new hurricane to set the rich like the poor once more so paro can cut vary on allyou again. set of fools.

    People our weather is completley geo engineered by the american military and the rest of the geo engineers all over the earth. They have the technology and they can steer the hurricanes/storms to a specific target. Maria was designed for Dominica and Puerto Rico. Same goes for the other islands like st marten and st Thomas that irma devastated. Harvey was for Houston. They can park the storm/hurricane over the target for hours and hours and hours so it can get flooded and the wind to cause maximum damage. They also put tornadoes in them. They gave us a test run with erica and then KWAVEY us with maria.

    Earth is flat.

    Didn’t they also say the Maria would weaken before reaching the islands?

    @Lover of DA – Intercession of Mary? Huh? What utter nonsense. Which Mary? The mother of Jesus? Why all you continue to willfully meddle in these false heretical doctrines dere nuh?

    Please be guided by God’s word as follows:

    1 Timothy 2:5 – For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (KJV)

    Simple, straight forward English – the verse explains itself.

      You should go say these precise prayers. All that is happening is a result of all of these fly by night religions with no solid foundation and adherents who are just malingva show. God can’t be taken for a pappyshow. I am telling you frankly you can’t accept me and curse and denigrate my mother.

    This is a frightening phenomenon. The storms seem to be directly targeting Dominica. I don’t believe , as many have opined, it’s because of evil doings. It’s more because of geographic location. Let’s all hope that Hurricane Isaac wind speed will be drastically reduced by the time it makes landfall. May God look on these our chain of islands favorably. After this storm passes, let’s hope that Dominica’s troubles be less and blessings be more. Try your best to kept safe my people

      Geographical location? Whappen, Dominica just move to this location a few years ago man? hahaha You right the first time, it is because of all the nonsense that going on. You cross the floor and weaken Dominicans hope? Well cross over Dominica now and weaken it more! Nobody not asking themselves a question, or we as a nation realize what is reallllyyyyyyy happening? NO, most waiting to go and beg for taupaulien because they yet to cover properly since they can’t afford, and then get disrespected over again and still go and jump in the costume band… this time they will name the sections Sot, Dumb, Blind and Retarded. They will still participate. I good with allu as a people, ya’ll rather stay and suffer all type of mal than take a risk and fix the country how it should be. I will survive no matter what tho.

        Geek, cross the floor? What are you really trying to relay? It’s just coincidental that these things are happening. I’m not caught up in any religious fanaticism. The forces of nature don’t target any particular country, they are not biased.

      Allu like to talk about god, but the scientific study says the storm may weaken because of wind shear… Isaac is a very compact storm and can be easily reap apart by one of those… The only problem is the hot weather we having lately in the Caribbean can cause it to rapidly intensify. May the winds sway in our favor :oops:

    Almighty and Nerciful God

    Through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother Mary please protect Dominica and all the other islands from all hurricanes.

    I thank you Mother Mary, thank you Mighty God

      Clearly you have no idea how nature works.

      Were the dinosaurs spared when a meteor slammed into the earth?
      What about the Tsunami in India?
      or the volcano eruption in guatemala the other day?
      Or the Typhoon that hit Japan?
      What about the earth quake in hati?
      And the flooding in Bangladesh?

      To become a Type I or even Type II Civilization what we need to do is start controlling and harnessing these storms, not praying to “Mary”

    Not surprising…not surprising at all.
    I will say what I said on my Facebook page, and I quote,

    “Take heed Dominicans and the rest of the Caribbean. Turn away from your wicked and ignorant ways. Do you want the face the wrath of God? Do not put the Lord your God to the test. Pray and pray hard that you do not suffer God’s wrath. After God sent Maria you have yet to turn back to God and insist on rebelling against him. Do-not-test-God. God has sent me the message that because you have refused to change away from your evil ways, Dominica shall suffer a Hurricane on the same level as Maria, and possible even worst. Your punishment shall be imminent unless you cast away your wicked, foolish, ignorant and evil ways and turn back to him.

    Dominicans…and the rest of the Caribbean…You have been warned.”

      Keep on disliking my post if you will. But God’s plan is clear and he has sent me many messages. And when he executes his judgment you all shall remember the messages I have written. But alas, it will be too late by then. I don’t know when God’s next wrath will come. But one thing is certain… Unless you don’t turn towards him our punishment WILL BE Imminent. And this not only goes for Dominica, but the rest of the Caribbean as well. I have warned. The Lord didn’t say Honourable Roosevelt Skerrit is Wicked and Evil and that’s why he’ll punish the country. He didn’t say Honourable Roosevelt Skerrit didn’t change his ways and thus, that’s why he’ll send another much worst. No…he siad it’s THE PEOPLE. And you know yourselves. Turn away from your evil, ignorant, rebellious and reckless ways that you and the rest of the country shall be spared…

      That…or suffer the Wrath of God, for he is not only a Loving, Patient and All-Seeing God, but a Vengeful one as well. And we WILL be Judged fairly by him.
