St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN) St Kitts and Nevis has been placed under a Tropical Storm Watch.
A Tropical Storm Watch means that Tropical Storm conditions are possible within the watch area in 48 hours.
A statement from the St Kitts Meteorological Services stated that Potential Tropical Cyclone 7 was located near latitude 15.3 north, longitude 49.3 west at 11 am.
It further stated that PTC 7 “will be a moderate Tropical Storm when it reaches the islands; however, there is the potential for it to impact the area as a strong Tropical Storm. Notwithstanding, there is still enough time for it to shift to the north and spare the islands the worst of its weather.”
Residents are being asked to monitor the system and implement their hurricane season plans for a potentially strong Tropical Storm.
Should Potential Tropical Cyclone 7 develop further, it will become Tropical Storm Grace.
