Puerto Rico areas of Hispaniola watch out for this forming hurricane and the resulting flash floods...
Yowbarb

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gtwo_atl.shtml

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gtwo_atl.shtml   Area 1 on the map shows a storm capable of forming into a hurricane in the next week.

1. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE LIMITED IN ASSOCIATION WITH A
BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE LOCATED OVER THE EAST-CENTRAL CARIBBEAN
SEA.  HOWEVER...ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS APPEAR FAVORABLE FOR
DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SYSTEM...AND A TROPICAL DEPRESSION COULD STILL
FORM DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS IT MOVES WESTWARD NEAR 15
MPH.  THERE IS A HIGH CHANCE...60 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING
A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS.  REGARDLESS OF
DEVELOPMENT...LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE IN THE VIRGIN
ISLANDS...PUERTO RICO...AND HISPANIOLA DURING THE NEXT DAY OR SO.
THESE RAINS COULD CAUSE LIFE-THREATENING FLASH FLOODS
AND MUD
SLIDES...ESPECIALLY IN MOUNTAINOUS TERRAIN.

CLOSE TO THE SOUTH COAST OF PUERTO RICO. THIS IMPLIES AN IMMINENT
RISK FOR TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS AND FREQUENT BANDS OF INTENSE
RAINFALL WITH WIND GUSTS APPROACHING NEAR HURRICANE FORCE AS THE
SYSTEM APPROACHES. BANDS OF MOISTURE WELL AHEAD OF THE MAIN
CIRCULATION ARE ALREADY AFFECTING SAINT CROIX AND WILL CONTINUE TO
PROPAGATE WESTWARD ACROSS THE REST OF THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS
VIEQUES AND CULEBRA THIS MORNING...AND THEN CONTINUING TO PUERTO
RICO LATER TODAY.

...TROPICAL STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT...

...PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

FINAL PREPARATIONS TO PROTECT LIFE AND PROPERTY SHOULD BE
COMPLETED BEFORE CONDITIONS DETERIORATE. THE ONSET OF GUSTY WINDS
AND HEAVY RAINS CAN CAUSE OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES TO BECOME DANGEROUS.
SECURE LOOSE OUTDOOR OBJECTS WHICH CAN BE BLOWN AROUND. IF YOU
LIVE IN A MOBILE HOME...LEAVE IT FOR MORE SUBSTANTIAL SHELTER.

BOAT OWNERS AND CAPTAINS OF SMALL CRAFT SHOULD RUSH TO COMPLETION
THE SECURING OF THEIR CRAFT.

&&

...WINDS AND SEAS...
AS TROPICAL STORM IRENE MOVES CLOSER...THE THREAT FOR SUSTAINED
HIGH WINDS IS LIKELY TO INCREASE. THE LATEST FORECAST IS FOR
STRONG TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS FROM LATE THIS AFTERNOON
THROUGH EARLY MONDAY MORNING. WINDS ARE FORECAST TO BE IN THE 35
TO 50 MPH RANGE WITH GUSTS OF 65 MPH OR GREATER. EAST SWELLS WILL
BEGIN TO AFFECT THE COASTAL WATERS THIS AFTERNOON AND WILL BUILD
SIGNIFICANTLY BY TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY MORNING. COMBINED SEAS OF
8 TO 14 FEET ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE REGIONAL WATERS TONIGHT
THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON.

...INLAND FLOODING...
RAIN BANDS WITH TORRENTIAL DOWNPOURS ARE EXPECTED TO BEGIN
AFFECTING THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS...CULEBRA AND VIEQUES THIS
MORNING...AND PUERTO RICO BY THIS AFTERNOON. WIDESPREAD RAINFALL
AMOUNTS OF 4 TO 7 INCHES ARE EXPECTED...WITH LOCALLY HIGHER
AMOUNTS POSSIBLE IN FAVORED AREAS. THIS RAINFALL WILL RESULT IN
RAPID RISES OF LOCAL STREAMS...RIVERS AND GUTS. MUDSLIDES AND
DEBRIS FLOW ARE ANTICIPATED IN AREAS OF STEEP TERRAIN.

...STORM SURGE AND STORM TIDE...
THE IMPACT FROM COMBINED STORM SURGE AND TIDE WATERS IS CURRENTLY
EXPECTED TO BE LOW. THE STORM SURGE IS FORECAST TO RANGE FROM 1 TO
3 FEET. THIS SURGE WILL ADD TO THE NORMAL TIDE LEVELS...CREATING
ABOVE NORMAL TIDES. THUS...THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR A SHORT PERIOD
OF INUNDATION OF LOW LYING AREAS UNTIL THE ONSHORE WINDS SUBSIDE.

IN ADDITION TO ABOVE NORMAL TIDES...DANGEROUS SURF CONDITIONS AND
STRONG RIP CURRENTS ARE EXPECTED. THE COMBINATION OF STRONG WINDS
AND HAZARDOUS SURF COULD RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT BEACH EROSION...
AND POSSIBLY COASTAL FLOODING OF LOW LYING AREAS AND ROADS.

...TORNADOES AND WATERSPOUTS...
ISOLATED TORNADOES WILL BE MOST LIKELY TO OCCUR ACROSS THE LOCAL
ISLANDS IN THE OUTER RAIN BANDS...AS THE CENTER OF TROPICAL STORM
IRENE APPROACHES THE LOCAL AREA AND THEN PASSES SOUTH OF THE U.S.
VIRGIN ISLANDS THIS AFTERNOON...AND PUERTO RICO TONIGHT THROUGH
MONDAY. REMEMBER...TORNADOES CAN DEVELOP MANY MILES AWAY FROM THE
TROPICAL CYCLONE CENTER OF CIRCULATION.
