Its been raining here since about 1:25.
Based on the latest satellite image, we should expect heavy downpours later in the evening going into the night.
Also hurricane hunters recorded winds between 40-50 knots; 12 N-12.5 N so even if the storm continues to move WNW, we could be affect by light to moderate winds.

Greetings All,

I have not posted here since the start of the season, but with the looming threat of  Kirk ahead, I  have decided to resume with my updates here as it relates to Kirk and the potential impact on SVG, this is what I know right now : 

  1.  All schools accross the country will remain closed tomorrow in anticipation of the passage of Tropical Storm Kirk
  2. Tropical Storm Kirk is expected to pass 80-100 Miles to the north of SVG late tomorrow (Thursday)

  3. Tropical storm force winds extend up 115 miles from the center , so it is quite possible that we may experience winds up to tropical storm force expecially in the northern portions of mainland St Vincent as the storm passes by.
  4. A decision has not been made yet regarding public servants and work for tomorrow.

Using the "Closest point of approach" tool available on this site which uses the projected points from the NHC official forecast here is what it says : 

Results for St.Vincent (13.13N, 61.2W):
The approximate Closest Point of Approach (CPA) is located near 14.6N, 60.7W or about 103.3 miles (166.3 km) from your location. The estimated time of when the center of the storm will be at that location is in about 24 hours and 60 minutes from now (Thursday, September 27 at 7:48PM AST)

I will continue to post on this page with conditions on the ground and photos if possible as the system passes.

Stay dry all!
