Coastal Flooding and Dangerous Waves Expected as Tammy Nears Leeward Islands


5pm UPDATE: Hurricane conditions are expected in portions of the Leeward Islands by late tonight through Saturday.

Tropical storm conditions are expected to begin in portions of the Lesser Antilles within the warning area this evening or overnight.

Heavy rains from Tammy will begin to affect the Leeward and northern Windward Islands tonight and Saturday spreading into the British and U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico as early as Sunday.

This rainfall may produce isolated flash and urban flooding, along with isolated mudslides in areas of higher terrain.

A storm surge could produce coastal flooding in areas of onshore winds as the center of Tammy moves near or over the Leeward Islands.

Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and dangerous waves.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
