Hurricane Isaac is forecast to begin affecting the British Virgin Islands on Wednesday and will produce greater impacts on Thursday (September 13), the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) has said.
“It is predicted to pass approximately 206 miles south of the British Virgin Islands as a strong tropical storm,” the DDM said.
“The BVI may see an increase in cloudiness with a high chance of showers from Wednesday. Seas as high seven to 10 feet are also possible,” added the DDM, which also noted that weather predictions are subject to change.
The weather system was located approximately 1469 miles east-southeast of the territory around 5 o’clock Monday morning.
It continues to move westerly with maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour.
Persons are still being urged to continue preparations as they brace for the storm.
