Acting Prime Minister Dale Marshall issued this statement a few minutes ago as the effects of Tropical Storm Kirk began to take effect.

Another named storm, Leslie, was downgraded to a non-tropical storm Tuesday.

The storm is expected to hit the Leeward Islands later this week.

After being downgraded to a tropical depression earlier this week, the United States-based National Hurricane Center said on Wednesday that Tropical Storm Kirk had reorganized, with maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour as of 2 p.m. AST. In the National Hurricane Center's 8am bulletin the storm was headed towards the northern Windward Islands and expected to approach Barbados tomorrow. The forward speed has decreased to near 16 miles per hour (26 km/h), and this is expected to further decrease over the next few days. On the forecast track, the center will move over the Lesser Antilles within the Tropical Storm Warning area Thursday night.

Kirk became a named storm Saturday and formed the farthest south of any major storm since 2012.

Meanwhile, Kirk has restrengthened into a tropical storm, and tropical storm warnings and watches have been issued for portions of the Lesser Antilles. The system is expected to run into heavy wind shear as it enters the Caribbean Sea, which will likely work to tear it apart. It has a 90 percent chance of development in the next five days.

Wind: Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the warning area by Thursday afternoon, making outside preparations hard or unsafe. Rainfall totals from four to six inches, with isolated totals up to 10 inches, are possible through Friday from Barbados and St. Lucia northward across Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe. These rains may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
