Cayman urged to watch Tropical Storm Isaac as path waivers

The forecast track for Tropical Storm Isaac at 11 a.m

Tropical storm watches are in effect for Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Antigua, and Saba and St. Eustatius. Maximum sustained winds Friday morning were near 35 miles per hour with higher gusts. The winds of Isaac are not expected to affect the Virgin Islands.

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service said Tropical Storm Isaac is moving away from Lesser Antilles and eastward into the Caribbean Sea.

Florence is expected to make landfall late Thursday night or early Friday morning, Mountain Time, somewhere between Atlantic Beach, NC and Savannah, GA.

All of the islands under watch were significantly impacted by Hurricanes Maria or Irma last September, with some of them still trying to rebuild. The storm had also picked up considerable speed and was racing west at 21 miles per hour toward the Lesser Antilles. "Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves", the NHC added.


Helene is now in the Atlantic Ocean following behind Hurricane Florence, which was expected to hit the eastern coast of the U.S. late Thursday or early Friday.

Isaac, along with Florence, Helene and two other systems increasingly likely to form, have set a hectic pace for the Atlantic - even busier than past year when Harvey, Isaac and Maria made landfall within three weeks of each other. There are 5.25 million people under hurricane warnings and watches and another 4.89 million under tropical storm watches and warnings. The upper level winds are light, meaning the storm is likely to maintain intensity, or even strengthen a bit before making landfall. "On the forecast track, the center of Florence will approach the coasts of North and SC later tonight, then move near or over the coast of southern North Carolina and northeastern SC in the hurricane warning area on Friday", the briefing said. Isaac is expected to dissipate within the next few days.

Some coastal flooding is possible in areas of onshore winds. "Persons located within these areas should take all necessary actions to protect life and property from rising water and the potential for other unsafe conditions", the hurricane center briefing said.
