The Bahamas Department Of Meteorology has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning from 7:15am edt until 9am edt Wednesday 09th August 2017.

A severe thunderstorm warning is in effect for Exuma, Cat Island, Rum Cay and their adjacent waters.

At 7:10am observation, radar and satellite imagery depicted a cluster of thunderstorms moving towards the mentioned areas. This weather is associated with an active tropical wave and a mid to upper level low pressure system.

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 area should seek safe Harbour and residents in the warning area 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
