SOURCE: NHC – Tropical Depression Three has formed over the central Atlantic, prompting an advisory for the Lesser Antilles.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has designated it as a tropical depression with the potential to intensify.
The depression is forecast to strengthen and move across the Lesser Antilles as a hurricane on Thursday and Friday, bringing a risk of flooding from heavy rainfall, hurricane-force winds, and dangerous storm surge and waves.
Given the larger than usual uncertainty in the track forecast, it is too early to specify the location and magnitude of where these hazards could occur.
However, everyone in the Lesser Antilles, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands should closely monitor updates to the forecast for this system and have their hurricane plan in place.
Residents are urged to monitor the system closely as it could bring heavy rainfall, gusty winds, and possible storm surge.
Emergency management agencies are activated, and further updates will be provided.
