(CMR) The Cayman Islands Government has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the Cayman Islands as of 4:00 PM today, 30 October 2022. The Tropical Storm Watch currently applies to all three islands as Potential Tropical Cyclone 15 continues to develop. Further updates will be issued to the public.
A tropical storm ‘watch’ means that the Cayman Islands could begin to experience tropical storm conditions within the next 48 hours. Deputy Governor and Chair of the Hazard Management Council, Hon Franz Manderson, encouraged the community to closely monitor the ongoing developments of this system and stressed the need for preparation.
“Though this system is still evolving, it is with an abundance of caution that we have issued this Tropical Storm Watch. We continue to monitor Potential Tropical Cyclone 15 to ensure that both the Government and the public are able to respond quickly and appropriately to keep the preservation of life at the forefront of our planned response. I encourage everyone to stay abreast of official updates and to action your preparation plans accordingly.”
At 4:00 PM, the center of Potential Tropical Cyclone 15 was located near latitude 15.7 ° north and longitude 73.6° west. On the current forecast track, potential tropical cyclone fifteen is expected to pass 130 miles south of Grand Cayman.
