WEATHER UPDATE: Irma remains a powerful Category two hurricane

At 5 am today, Hurricane Irma was located near latitude 19.0 degrees north and longitude 41.8 degrees west or about 1320 miles east of the Leeward Islands and is moving towards the west near 14mph. Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 110mph making Irma a powerful category two hurricane.

The center of Hurricane Irma is projected to move just northeast of the area by Tuesday into Wednesday of next week.

Interests in Dominica are advised to monitor the progress of this system and to make all the necessary preparations as Irma continues to move towards the Lesser Antilles.

    The impact of Hurricane Irma on the islands north of Dominica could be a blessing for Dominica since all those cruise ships going to the USVI, BVI, St Maarten, Antigua will be diverted to Dominica. While these countries will be getting a doze of wind, rain and rough sea… we in Dominica will be getting a doze of Uncle Sam :lol: :lol: :lol:

      @ Johnny come lately, What a sad thought. Just be reminded that love for people is more valuable than money. So let us all just pray that none of the islands experiences tropical storm or hurricane Irma.
