    Hurricane Emily

    Advertisements



    Bonaire is under a tropical storm warning.
    From the Meterological Service of the Netherlands Antilles (www.meteo.an):

    SYSTEM* IDENTIFICATION: Hurricane Emily.


    INTENSITY CATEGORY: Category one hurricane


    CENTER LOCATION: 12.3N 62.3W or 650 km East* of Bonaire



    LOCATION TIME: 5:00 A.M.


    MAX WINDS NEAR CENTER: 80 KTS/ 90 MPH/ 150 KMH.


    PRESENT MOVEMENT: towards the West Northwest or 285 degrees at 16 KTS/ 18 MPH or 30 KM/HR.
    DISCUSSION: During the night Emily has been upgraded to a category one hurricane and is now taking a more West Northwesterly course and the center of Emily
    *is expected to pass North of the ABC Islands during early* Friday morning at a distance of approximately 200 kilometers. Although Emily is now a hurricane, and the ABC islands are expected to remain well out of the area with hurricane winds, they may still be affected by tropical storm conditions. Consequently* a TROPICAL STORM WARNING is now in effect for the ABC islands.
    This scenario would bring tropical storm force winds (force 7 to 9), rough sea conditions and periods with showers and thundershowers.With the present forecast track, these tropical storm conditions could affect the ABC-islands starting late Thursday evening and continuing through the night and Friday morning.

    EFFECT ON LOCAL CONDITIONS:* As Emily is moving* westward, bands with rainshowers are preceding the hurricane and may start to affect our islands early this afternoon (thursday), causing some scattered rainshowers.

    WATCHES/WARNINGS IN EFFECT: A TROPICAL STORM WARNING is in effect as of today (Thursday) 7 A.M. and all interests are advised to be prepared for possible tropical storm force (gale force) winds, rough seas and heavy rainfall tonight and friday morning.
    A Small Craft Warning will be in effect as from this afternoon, advising owners of small boats not to venture from port and secure their vessels properly.
    Interests at coastal facilities should also take appropriate precautionary measures, in relation expected rough sea conditions and possible winds from westerly and southerly directions.
    Local authorities and residents are advised to continue monitoring the further progress of this weather system.
