Tropical Storm Dorian is moving west onto Caribbean waters. The National Hurricane Center does not has it with hurricane status when it crosses by Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic by its eastern coast. Stormy weather is expected as of Thursday, 29 August 2019 on the island. The National Meteorological Office (Onamet) is calling for all to closely monitor the storm as it moves west.
This is a time to complete pre hurricane preparations. Reports on DR1 Weather & Beyond Forum’s “2019 Hurricane Season” thread indicate that this could be an intense September and October for the Dominican Republic. Preparations for a major storm should be underway. End of August and September is the peak time for hurricanes in the Caribbean.
