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. Because hurricane preparedness activities become hard once winds reach tropical storm force, the Warning is issued 36 hours in advance of the onset of tropical storm force winds. On the forecast track, the center will move over the Lesser Antilles within the Tropical Storm Warning area Thursday night.

Maximum sustained winds are near 60 miles per hour (95 km/h) with higher gusts.

Another named storm, Leslie, was downgraded to a non-tropical storm Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles mainly to the north and east of the center.

Tropical Storm Kirk is expected to make landfall in the Lesser Antilles Thursday evening, bringing 50 miles per hour winds and the threat of flooding and mudslides.

"Gusty winds and locally heavy rains are likely for the Windward and Leeward islands over the next couple of days", the report said.

In its discussion of the storm, the agency said Kirk "is predicted to dissipate due to the strong shear over the Caribbean Sea in about 5 days, and several of the reliable global models show this occurring even sooner". This system has a very high chance of redevelopment. Acting Prime Minister Dale Marshall issued this statement a few minutes ago as the effects of Tropical Storm Kirk began to take effect. Weakening is expected on Friday and this weekend after the storm enters the Caribbean. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by Thursday afternoon. These rains may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides on the islands.
