On the forecast track, the center will move over the Lesser Antilles within the Tropical Storm Warning area Thursday night. The main threat for the Carolinas would be high surf along the coast and an increased chance of rip currents.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) from the center.

A subsequent announcement from the Department of Emergency Management supported this initial statement but urged the public to exercise caution and continue to monitor the passage of Tropical Storm Kirk.

Unlike other countries such as Barbados, St Lucia, and St Vincent & the Grenadines, no tropical storm Warnings or Watches has been issued for the BVI. "My staff and I are working closely with our partners at the National Weather Service located in San Juan, PR to ensure we receive real-time updates on the progress of Tropical Storm Kirk", Ms. Barnes said.

The tropical storm was travelling westerly at 18 miles per hour and had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph. The minimum pressure is 1,002 mb.

"Gradual weakening is anticipated during the next couple of days, but Kirk is forecast to move across the Lesser Antilles and into the eastern Caribbean Sea as a tropical storm, " the hurricane center said. It could regain sub-tropical storm status later this week.

NHC predicts Kirk will approach Barbados and the northern Windward Islands Thursday afternoon and move into the eastern Caribbean Sea by Friday morning.

A Hurricane Watch is issued when sustained winds of 74 miles per hour or higher are POSSIBLE within the specified area of the Watch. These rains may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides on the islands.
