SOURCE: NOAA – (500 AM AST, Friday, June 23, 2023) – Tropical Storm Cindy continues to gain strength as it moves across the Atlantic Ocean.
The latest updates indicate that Cindy’s center is located at approximately latitude 12.1 North and longitude 46.9 West, which places it about 990 miles (1595 km) east of the Lesser Antilles.
With maximum sustained winds of 45 mph (75 km/h) and a minimum central pressure of 1005 mb (29.68 inches), Cindy is gradually intensifying.
The storm is currently moving in a west-northwest direction at a speed of 15 mph (24 km/h). This general motion is expected to persist over the next few days.
No coastal watches or warnings are currently in effect, alleviating concerns for residents in the affected areas.
However, it is important to remain vigilant as Cindy progresses.
The forecast track predicts that the system will remain well east and northeast of the northern Leeward Islands in the coming days.
This trajectory minimizes the immediate threat to these islands until early next week.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the center of the storm, which is a significant area of influence.
Experts anticipate further strengthening of Tropical Storm Cindy in the next couple of days, emphasizing the need for ongoing monitoring and preparation.
Residents in the potential path of the storm are advised to stay informed about the latest updates from local authorities and follow any precautionary measures recommended for their safety.
As the situation develops, it is crucial for individuals and communities to remain aware and prepared, taking necessary actions to safeguard lives and property in the face of this evolving weather system.
