Tropical storm advisories issued in Bahamas, Cuba


Oct. 27 (UPI) — A tropical disturbance off the coast of Honduras is likely to strengthen into a tropical storm Friday or Saturday, prompting the Bahamas and Cuba to issue advisories, the National Hurricane Center said.

The storm was located about 290 miles south-southwest of the Isle of Youth, Cuba, and 380 miles south-southwest of Havana as of the NHC’s 8 p.m. EDT advisory.

It was moving north-northwest at 6 mph and had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph.

There was a tropical storm warning in effect for the Isle of Youth (Isla de la Juventud), Havana, Matanzas, Cienfuegos and Villa Clara, Cuba, and the Northwestern Bahamas.

There was a tropical storm watch for the Central Bahamas, and the NHC said residents in the Cayman Islands, South Florida and the Florida Keys should monitor the storm.

“On the forecast track, the system will move across western Cuba late Saturday and move through the northwestern Bahamas Saturday night and early Sunday,” the NHC said.

The NHC forecasted rainfall for northern Honduras (1-3 inches); Cayman Islands, western and central Cuba and Northwestern Bahamas (4-8 inches with maximum 10 inches possible); and South Florida and Florida Keys (3-5 inches with maximum 8 inches possible).
