TROPICAL STORM WATCH HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED…REMNANTS OF BERYL MOVES INTO THE EASTERN CARIBBEAN SEA…THIS WILL BE THE LAST ADVISORY

 

At 11pm, the remnants of Beryl were located near latitude 15.8 degrees north and longitude 62.4 degrees west or about 80 miles west north west of Dominica. The remnants are moving west north westward at 26mph (42km/h) away from the island with maximum sustained winds near 40mph or 65km/h with higher gusts.

 

The remnants of Beryl will continue to generate periods of moderate to heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms which could result in flooding as soils are already saturated. Gusty winds will persist during tonight, particularly across the northern section of the island.   

 

The FLOOD WARNING will remain in effect up to 6am Monday July 9, 2018. People in areas prone to flooding, landslides and falling rocks are advised to be vigilant and to exercise caution.

 

Very rough seas are expected to continue affecting Dominica tonight into tomorrow, Monday.

A High-Surf Advisory and Small-Craft Warning are in effect up to 12pm Monday July 9, 2018. Large waves and dangerous rip-currents will create unsafe conditions for small-craft operators. Sea-bathers should stay out of the water.

 

 

This is the final bulletin on the remnants of Beryl by the Meteorological Service.
