According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC) report, the Barbados Meteorological Service issued a warning about the strengthening of the meteorological phenomenon also for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Likewise, entities from Santa Lucía welcomed the alert after verifying that Elsa has gained in organization and intensity, notably improving its cloudy pattern.

In hurricane watch these are parts of southern Haiti from Port-au-Prince to the south, bordering the Dominican Republic.

The center of Elsa was estimated at 13.1 degrees North latitude and 60.1 degrees West longitude, a position that placed it about 65 kilometers (km) southeast of Barbados, in the Lesser Antilles arc.

The central pressure dropped to 995 hectoPascal as it moved rapidly west-northwest at 44 kilometers per hour.

Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 35 kilometers from central winds and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 220 km.

Barbados recently reported sustained winds of 119 km / h and a wind gust of 138 km / h.

Elsa will pass near or over the Windward Islands or south of the Leeward Islands this morning, moving across the eastern Caribbean Sea in the afternoon today and tonight. Then it will enter the eastern Caribbean Sea to travel through the seas to the south of Puerto Rico and Hispaniola on Saturday morning.

For Sunday it is forecast to move near Jamaica and eastern Cuba. The intensity of the rains, the strength of the winds and the effects of the sea on this territory will be closely related to its evolution and future trajectory, the meteorological reports indicate.
