By BBN Staff: This afternoon, a hurricane hunter located the disturbance in the Atlantic and found it to have developed into a tropical storm.
The National Hurricane Center today issued advisories on newly formed Tropical Storm Bret, located just to the southeast of Trinidad.
Tropical Storm Bret is threatening Trinidad and Tobago as well as Grenada.
The system is carrying maximum sustained winds near 40 miles per hour.
Bret is located less than 90 miles southeast of Trinidad and about 225 miles southeast of Grenada at that time, and moving toward the west-northwest near 30 miles per hour. It is expected to continue at a slightly slower speed over the next 48 hours.
The NHC reports that a tropical storm warning is in effect for Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, and parts of Venezuela’s east coast, while a tropical storm watch is in effect for Bonaire, Curacao and Aruba.
Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach portions of the warning area tonight, making outside preparations difficult or dangerous.
