The category 1 Hurricane Maria is forecast to rapidly intensify into a major category 4 hurricane during the next 48 hours, posing the most danger to the recently battered Caribbean Islands. According to the latest update, NHC says Maria has maximum sustained winds of 90mph (150 km/h).

A hurricane warning is in effect for Martinique, Guadeloupe, Dominica, St. Kitts, Nevis and Montserrat. A tropical storm warning for Antigua and Barbuda, Saba, St. Eustatius and St. Lucia. A hurricane watch is now in effect for Puerto Rico, the US and British Virgin Islands, St Martin, St Barths, Saba, St Eustatius and Anguilla, many of which are still recovering after being severely damaged by Irma.

Maria is expected to produce a total accumulation of 6 to 12 inches of rain, with isolated maximums of 20 inches. Rainfall of this extent could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.

Concordia’s experienced Global CAT response team is on standby to provide assistance as required, working closely with our Associates in Caribbean.
