Barbados, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines bracing for Tropical Storm Kirk

Barbados and Saint Lucia are this morning under a Tropical Storm Warning and St. Vincent and the Grenadines under a Tropical Storm Watch as Tropical Storm Kirk churns its way towards the Eastern Caribbean.

Kirk which was earlier this week downgraded to a Tropical depression has regained strength and is currently packing winds of 45 miles-per-hour (75 km/h). At 5:00 a.m. it was located at 11.8 North, 52.7 West or 470 miles (755 km) East of Barbados.

Forecasters expect Kirk to follow a westward to west-north-westward direction, and on this track it will pass Barbados and the northern Windward Islands by Thursday afternoon and into the Caribbean sea by Friday morning.
