At 985 km northwest of Port au Prince (612 miles) with sustained winds (maximum) of 65 km/h (40 mph). Emily is currently moving at 22 km/h (14 mph) along a trajectory West and could hit the Dominican Republic and Haiti in the next 24 to 48 hours [Thursday for Haiti if the speed is maintained]. 10 of the 12 forecast models plan the passage of Emily on Haiti.

  • Stay tuned to weather reports
  • Put out of water all the thing that can be damaged by flood
