Antigua, Other Islands Under Tropical Storm Watch As Jerry Approaches

Several Caribbean Islands including Antigua & Barbuda are under tropical storm watch as Tropical storm Jerry approaches.

Jerry is expected to become a hurricane late Thursday, weather forecasters say.

The storm, which was located East of the Leeward Islands was packing winds of 70 mph.

The system will be considered a Category 1 hurricane when the winds begin blowing at 74 mph.

The Weather Channel’s Domenica Davis said Thursday that Jerry is expected to remain a Category One storm as it passes Puerto Rico and the Bahamas.

“Then it is expected to curve to the right and stay out to sea – so that is the good news with this,” Davis stated.

The weather forecaster announced that storm watches have been issued for Antigua and St Maarten.

MSN News is reporting that in addition to those Islands, storm watches have also been issued for  St. Barthelemy, Saba and St. Eustatius.

However forecasters say it is too early to determine whether the Islands will get a direct hit.
