A weakening tropical storm Isaac was inching towards the Lesser Antilles as hurricane watches were lifted for a number of Caribbean countries.

The Miami-based National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said that Isaac is expected to continue weakening over the next few days as it makes its way across the eastern Caribbean Sea.

In its latest bulletin, the NHC said that the storm, which at one time was described as the fifth hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season, was located 500 miles east of the French island of Martinique.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe, while a tropical storm watch has been issued for Antigua, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saba and St. Eustatius.

The NHC said that the storm is located near latitude 14.5 North, longitude 53.5 West and is moving towards the west near 16 miles per hour.

  • Remember
    Remember me when I am gone away, Gone far away into the silent land; When you can go no more hold me by the hand, Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay. Remember me when no more day by day You tell me of our future that you planned: Only remember me; you understand It will be late to counsel then or pray. Yet if you should forget me for a while And afterwards remember, do not grieve: For if the darkness and corruption leave A vestige of the thoughts that once I had, Better by far you should forget and smile Than that you should remember and be sad.
