The unit said the location of the quake was Latitude: 15.11north, Longitude: 60.43 west at a depth of 10 kilometers.

Kirk had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) and was located about 230 miles (370 kilometers) south of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The Tropical Storm continues its movement toward the west-northwest near 13 miles per hour (20 km/h), and this motion is expected to continue through Sunday.

The NHC has advised that reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 45 miles per hour (75 km/h) with higher gusts.

Tropical Storm Kirk dropped heavy rain and unleashed flooding as it passed through the eastern Caribbean, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

A tropical storm warning is in effect for the islands of Barbados, St. Lucia, Dominica, Martinique and Guadeloupe.

That jet-stream dip has move on, and the leftover system is expected to redevelop into Subtropical Storm Leslie with wind near hurricane force.

The storm is expected to soon weaken to a tropical depression and degenerate into a low pressure trough by late Saturday.

The Flash Flood warning and Tropical Storm Warning remain until 6:00 am tomorrow and it seems as though that is when further directives will come from the powers that be.

The NHC has advised that these watches and warnings will likely be gradually discontinued later today. Although the organized circulation will die out due to hostile upper-level winds, the moisture surge will bring heavy rain with the risk of flooding to the mountainous islands, including Puerto Rico beginning Friday night.
