Hurricane Lee Will Not Directly Impact TT On Its Present Tract

Hurricane Lee is not expected to directly impact Trinidad and Tobago on its present tract as it moves north of the northern Leeward Islands during the next few days.

The Met Service says Lee is moving west-northwest near 24 km/h and this motion is expected to continue through Friday, with a slower motion over the weekend.

At 11 a.m. Thursday morning, the centre of Hurricane Lee was located about 1405km E of the northern Leeward Islands.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 165 km/h with higher gusts.

The National Hurricane Center forecasts Lee to become a major hurricane later today.

Interests in the northern Leeward Islands should monitor the progress of Lee.

The Met Service says this system poses no immediate threat to Trinidad, Tobago, Grenada and its Dependencies.

There are currently no alerts, watches or warnings in effect for Trinidad and Tobago.

This is the last Official Statement on Hurricane Lee.
