“At this point none of the disturbances are a threat to the British Virgin Islands; however, there continues to be a high level of uncertainty in the track of these disturbances and for this reason we should continue to monitor them closely.”

The NHC and other forecasting agencies have also indicated that going forward we will see an increase in the number of disturbances moving off the African coast with development potential.

The DDM said it will continue to monitor the disturbances and provide updates accordingly.
