Tropical Storm Kirk forms in Atlantic

Projected path of TS Kirk

Tropical Storm Kirk has formed in the Atlantic Ocean.

At 11:00 am the center of Kirk was located near latitude 8.3 North, longitude 23.6 West.

Kirk is moving toward the west near 14 mph (22 km/h) and a westward to west-northwestward motion at a similar forward speed is expected to continue through tonight.

A faster westward motion across the deep tropical Atlantic Ocean is expected Sunday through Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.

Some strengthening is forecast through Sunday, with little change in intensity forecast on Monday and Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km), mainly to the northwest of the center.

Kirk is expected to approach the Lesser Antilles by Thursday next week.

Residents are advised to keep informed of these systems and the Meteorological Services will provide the necessary updates.

    No politician benefitted from the evils of Charles Savarin more than Euginia Charles. Yet, she shipped him to Brussels and finally removed him from her cabinet to the point that she supported Alene Carbon as her successor than Charlo. Yet because Skerrit sold himself to do evil he used his majority in office to make Charlo his president. To show Skerrit that although he has political power he is not God, who has absolute power and reign righteously, two massive and dangerous storms, Erika and Maria came upon us when we least expected. Can you all not see the reason why? Savarin has been connected to all three David, Erika and Maria and yet, Skerrit because he wants to continue to do evil and hide, intends to extend the stay of Savrin in office. Dominicans, God is NOT mocked and Skerrit is not God Lok Proverbs 14:34 warns that it is “Righteousness that exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” No wonder we are a reproach today because we support the evils of Skerrit

    @Pragmatik and others, here are some truths we can’t avoid. I agree we are in the hurricane belt and that puts us a risk. But were we not always in that location over 3,000 years ago? Do you know that before David in 1979, we went over 100 years (1830) destruction free? Let me take you to the famous passage found in 2 Chronicles 7:14. But notice in verse 13, God established the fact that he has absolute power over the rain, storm, hurricane, pestilence, locusts or anything that destroy the land 2 Chr. 7: 13 “If I shut up heaven that there be no rain….”. God could protect us from David, Erika, Maria and those to come, and not our location. Hurricane David came after the then evil Charles Saverin put us under a 48 day strike that caused many of our people to suffer and the removal of PJ, for evils far less than what Skerrit is doing today. As if to announce that he is sold to evil, Skerrit made the evil Charles Savrin president in 2013, which resulted in Erica and Maria. Expect…

    , @Pragmatik, while you are scientifically and geographically correct, I must say that you seem to be very ignorant of the most important aspect. God is rules and controls both science and our geographic location and therefore what has been happening to Dominica, especially lately, is more than just our geographic location. Let me remind you of Hurricane David of August 291979, was projected to hit Barbados and not us. Let’s not forget that David came 3 months after Charles Saverin led a 48 day strike on Dominica which resulted in the removal of the PJ led administration for evils far less than what is taking place today. It came as a reminder to us. Furthermore, I think it was in 1998 during the time of UWP, we were threatened by a Cat 4 storm and I remember how dark Dominica got about 10 am, but we were miraculously spared. As the evil reign of Skerrit continues we are constantly under attack and as a thief in the night Maria came on us. It’s the evil of Skerrit we supporting

    @God is good, I agree with you 100% that God is good and has always be good and has always been good, despite the fact that we we’re destroyed by Erika and Maria of late. Yes, God is good, however our government is EVIL and many Dominicans like yourself are evil and supporting the evils of Skerrit and his government. God was good when he destroyed the entire Earth and spared only Noah and a few, because of the evils and corruption of the people, as we see in the book of Genesis chapter 6. So yes God is good but he will punish evil, especially when evil and wrong doings are blatantly being supported by people that know better.

    Looks like it’s heading straight for Martinique not Dominica. Guadeloupe is the island shaped like a butterfly. We are the first below but the white line passes directly over the second island below. Yes we will get wind and rain but it’s not like the last one.

      I believe it’s a sign for UWP Supporters to do good and not evil. GOD don’t like ugly.

      No you dummy it means that we are in the hurricane belt and given the general trajectory of storms and our position as one of the most easterly islands it means we will always be in the path of the first models forecast until they are updated.
