Hazard Event Reports

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.

Event Briefing - Excess Rainfall - Trough System

A low pressure trough, located over the northern Lesser Antilles brought heavy showers and thunderstorms to much of the British and US Virgin Islands and the Lesser Antilles from 7 to 8 November 2014.

Event Briefing - Excess Rainfall - Covered Area Rainfall Event - Grenada

On 23 October 2014, Grenada experienced heavy rainfall as a result of a very strong easterly tropical wave that affected the southeastern Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles. This triggered a Covered Area Rainfall Event (CARE) according to CCRIF’s Caribbean Rainfall Model.

Event Briefing - Excess Rainfall - Covered Area Rainfall Event - Haiti

On 17 October 2014, strong heating caused convection over the higher terrain of Haiti and, combined with a frontal system from Cuba and The Bahamas, created intense precipitation over the country. Haiti experienced torrential rainfall on 17 to 18 October 2014, which triggered a Covered Area Rainfall Event (CARE) according to CCRIF’s Caribbean Rainfall Model.
