TS Isaac less organised; Governments call off Storm Warnings, Watches

TS Isaac less organised; Governments call off Storm Warnings, Watches

"We do not anticipate experiencing any tropical storm or hurricane force winds, but we could experience rain and will be placed under a flash flood watch", said Governor Kenneth Mapp in a release issued late Thursday.

The Portuguese weather service said that wind gusts of up to 74 mph are possible by the weekend in the Azores, an island chain about 850 miles west of Portugal. It is expected to continue on a westward path toward the islands.

Isaac is forecast to move across the central Lesser Antilles and into the eastern Caribbean Sea Thursday, and then move across the eastern and central Caribbean Sea through Saturday.

The cloud system associated with Isaac remains poorly organized and Saint Lucia fell between the rain bands of Isaac, hence the island has thus far not received the expected rainfall.

All of the islands under watch were significantly impacted by Hurricanes Maria or Irma last September, with some of them still trying to rebuild.

Surf swells generated by Isaac are affecting portions of the Lesser Antilles. "Life-threatening storm surge and rainfall expected". And the timing couldn't be more apt: Monday was the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season, when storm activity has historically been at its highest.

The turbulent weather is coming off the back of one of number of major storms now raging in the Atlantic, another of which, Hurricane Florence, has caused mass evacuations on the east coast of United States this week.

Hurricane Warnings are in effect from the South Santee River in SC to Duck, North Carolina.

Emma Smith, meteorologist with the Exeter-based Met Office, said more details would emerge within the next day over what impact the storm might have.

Isaac became the fifth hurricane of the season late Sunday and was initially expected to strengthen, potentially becoming a Cat 2 storm with 100 miles per hour winds, as it crossed warm ocean waters.

Some coastal flooding is possible in areas of onshore winds.

A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area. There are 5.25 million people under hurricane warnings and watches and another 4.89 million under tropical storm watches and warnings. "Persons located within these areas should take all necessary actions to protect life and property from rising water and the potential for other risky conditions", the hurricane center briefing said.
