TS Kirk drops heavy rain across eastern Caribbean | Columbus Ledger-Enquirer

Chances Kirk will redevelop increase, tropical depression possible off North Carolina

UPDATE [11:00 am]: All may seem clear and sunny in some areas of Barbados, but citizens of the Lesser Antilles are being urged to stay on guard as hurricane hunters record higher wind speeds than first predicted.

The information above is provided for guidance only and should not be used to make life or death decisions or decisions relating to property.

The NHC said there were no coastal watches or warnings in effect as the region continues to monitor a busy 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season that has already registered five hurricanes so far. As the center of the system moves away from Barbados, wind-speeds of to 20 to 30 miles per hour (32 to 48 km/h) with occasional higher gusts will persist across the island during the afternoon and into tonight.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward of up to 140 miles primarily to the east of Kirk's center, NHC adds.

Tropical Storm 27W is forecast to strengthen but become extratropical in the next 24 hours.

Bills trade OT Marshall Newhouse to the Panthers
Originally signed by the Chargers in 2014 as an undrafted rookie, Sirles was traded to Minnesota for a sixth-round pick in 2016. Newhouse has played in all three of Buffalo's games this season, though he didn't start in any of them.

The Barbados Meteorological Services cautions citizens not to let down their guard even as Tropical Storm Kirk continues to move west-northwestward, away from Barbados still under a storm warning. Gradual weakening is forecast as the system moves into the Eastern Caribbean Sea.

Another named storm, Leslie, was downgraded to a post tropical storm earlier this week. This storm does not pose a threat to Florida.

The reconstituted storm could threaten flash flooding and rough seas on Thursday and Friday as it heads toward smaller island chains among the Lesser Antilles.

There is the additional rainfall hazard, with up to 10 inches of rainfall possible across Martinique and Dominica.

Across eastern Puerto Rico, Kirk will likely bring 2 to 4 inches of rain with isolated 6 inches by Friday and Saturday.
