The Bahamas Department of Meteorology has issued a severe thunderstorm warning from 11:40am EDT until 2:00pm Tuesday 22nd August 2017.
A severe thunderstorm warning is in effect for Mayaguana, Acklins, Crooked Island, Ragged Island and their adjacent waters.
At 11:40am observation, radar and satellite imagery depicted clusters of thunderstorms associated with the northern portion of a tropical wave that extends across Hispaniola.
Some of these thunderstorms will be severe at times causing strong gusty winds, dangerous lightning, heavy downpours, hail and possible waterspout or tornadic activity.
Boaters in the warning areas should seek safe harbour and residents in the warning areas should stay indoors and away from windows when conditions worsen. Residents should not seek shelter under trees or in water as these can become lightning conductors.
