At 9pm, on the advice given by the Forecasters at the Meteorological Office at the Maurice Bishop International Airport, the National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA) has issued the ALL CLEAR for the activation to Tropical Storm Karen.
At 8pm, the center of Tropical Storm Karen was located near latitude 12.9 North, longitude 63.0 West. Karen is moving generally toward the west-northwest near 13 mph (20 km/h). A turn toward the northwest is forecast to occur later tonight or on Monday, followed by a turn toward the north on Tuesday.
On the forecast track, the center of Karen will continue to move away from Grenada and the Windward Islands tonight.
On Tuesday, Karen is expected to pass near or over Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
