Beryl is expected to be an extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane when it reaches the Windward Islands.

This is a very dangerous situation and residents in these areas should listen to local government and emergency management officials for any preparedness and/or evacuation orders.

All preparations should be rushed to completion today.
Potentially catastrophic hurricane-force winds, a life-threatening storm surge, and damaging waves are expected when Beryl passes over portions of the Windward Islands with the highest risk of the core in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Grenada beginning early Monday morning.
Hurricane Warnings are in effect for much of the Windward Islands.
Heavy rainfall and localized flooding are expected across the Windward Islands through Monday.
Beryl is expected to remain a powerful hurricane as it moves across the Caribbean Sea later this week and interests in Hispaniola, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and the remainder of the northwestern Caribbean should monitor its progress, There is large forecast uncertainty at days 4 and 5 and users should not focus on the specific details of the track or intensity forecast.
