- Beryl shows its tail

Good morning to all,

at the time when Beryl was supposed to be nearest to Barbados yesterday there was not one leave shaking on the trees and no rain whatsoever. We had a few showers in the morning before Beryl was forecasted to get close, but according to satellite photos at that time they were not related to Beryl, just the usual rain. Now, since 3:00am today I am hearing thunder in the distance, some rare lightning going with it lately and the rain is coming down lightly with that constant sound that it may never end doing so. Just now as I am writing this heavy lightning and thunder is repeatedly occurring, 20 seconds between lightning and thunder, meaning it happened about 6+ kilometres away from my location (see below). I am assuming to the north from here. Rain still falling constantly but lightly.

I am just hoping that Dominica was spared from the worst, because they really did not need another disaster for sure!

Everyone may be prepared and stay safe.

Best regards to all.
