Hurricane Beryl has made landfall on the Carriacou Island near Grenada as a powerful Category 4 hurricane

Hurricane Beryl has made landfall on the Carriacou Island near Grenada as a powerful Category 4 hurricane, bringing with it life-threatening winds and storm surge conditions. The storm made landfall on Monday morning, with maximum sustained winds of 150mph and a pressure of 950 millibars.


Impact

The National Hurricane Center has warned of a life-threatening situation, with potentially catastrophic hurricane-force winds, a life-threatening storm surge, and damaging waves. The storm is expected to bring significant rainfall to the Windward Islands, with maximum rainfall of up to 10 inches possible in St. Vincent and the Grenadine Islands and up to 6 inches across Barbados.


Evacuations and Preparations

Thousands of people have been evacuated to hurricane shelters in Barbados, and airports in Barbados, Grenada, and Saint Lucia have closed. Residents in the Grenadine Islands and Carriacou Island have been advised not to leave their shelters as winds will rapidly increase within the eyewall of Beryl.


Record-Breaking Storm

Hurricane Beryl is the earliest Category 4 storm on record, and it has shattered records by rapidly intensifying from a tropical depression to a Category 3 storm in just 42 hours. This is the sixth time in Atlantic hurricane history that a storm has achieved this feat, and the earliest date this has happened before was September 1.
