Good evening residents of Saba
As of 8 p.m. this evening, the KNMI placed us under a tropical storm warning. This is based on the advice of the National Hurricane Center in Miami.
A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected within the warning area within 36 hours.
SUMMARY OF 800 PM AST…0000 UTC…INFORMATION
ABOUT 580 MI…935 KM E OF THE LEEWARD ISLANDS
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…35 MPH…55 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT…W OR 275 DEGREES AT 22 MPH…35 KM/H
As I mentioned, earlier tropical depression number 7 has a lot of rain. Although it is still a tropical depression, I would advise you to treat it as if it’s a hurricane. We know from the last years that these systems can develop very quickly.
I don’t want you to panic, but to be prepared and stay prepared.
Tomorrow, Saturday, I will come to you with more updates.
