Hazard Event Reports

Event Briefing - Excess Rainfall - Tropical Cyclone Danny - August 23-24 2015

The remnants of TC Danny (AL042015) caused heavy rainfall over the island of Dominica with areas receiving nearly 2 inches (50 mm) of rain in a short period on Monday 24 August, 2015. Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica and St. Kitts and Nevis were the only CCRIF member countries with Excess Rainfall policies1 that were affected by Danny. However, a Covered Area Rainfall Event (CARE) was only triggered in Dominica, where approximately 80% of the country’s area received excess rainfall.

Event Briefing - Covered Area Rainfall Event - May 20-22, 2015

The Caribbean Rainfall Model (operated by Kinetic Analysis Corporation (KAC)) indicated that a Covered Area Rainfall Event (CARE) was generated in Haiti starting on 20 May 2015 and ending on 22 May 2015.

A magnitude 5.2 earthquake occurred at 02:24:16 UTC (21:24:16 local time) on 16 April 2015 north west of Trinidad and Tobago. Initial estimates from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) locate the epicentre of the event at 10.859ºN, 62.459ºW, and at a depth of 76.5 km.

Event Briefing - Excess Rainfall - Trough System - November 21 - 22 2014

Interaction of the Tropical Upper Tropospheric Trough (TUTT) and the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) led to enhanced atmospheric instability and produced moderate to heavy showers with isolated embedded thunderstorms in the Eastern Caribbean on 21 and 22 November 2014.

Event Briefing - Excess Rainfall - Trough System - November 8 - 12 2014

A low pressure trough moving through the Western Atlantic brought continued rainfall to Haiti from 9 to 11 November 2014. The trough had affected Anguilla and St. Kitts and Nevis a few days earlier1, making Haiti the third CCRIF member country with an Excess Rainfall policy2 to be affected by the system.
