At 8:00 a.m. today, the center of Tropical Storm Kirk was located near latitude 13.6 north, longitude 58.7 west or 157 miles or 252 km east of Saint Lucia.

Another system, about 260 miles south of Cape Hatteras, N.C., could become a tropical depression today as it moves northwestward.

Musk claimed funding had already been secured for the deal and that the only remaining uncertainty was a shareholder vote. As part of Tesla's settlement with the SEC, the company will pay a $20 (£15.3 / €17.2) million penalty.

On the forecast track, the centre of Kirk will move across the Lesser Antilles within the Tropical Storm Warning area by this evening. The associated shower activity is gradually becoming more organized, and Leslie is expected to again become a subtropical storm, or possibly a tropical storm, later today or Friday while it moves west-southwestward at about 10 miles per hour over the north-central Atlantic.

Gradual weakening is forecast for the next few days, but Kirk remains a threat before it breaks apart.

According to local media, all 36 passengers and 11 crew members are safe, citing Jimmy Emilio, Chuuk airport manager. There are not believed to have been any deaths or serious injuries. "We don't really know what happened", he said.

After dissipating into a trough of low pressure on Monday, Tropical Storm Kirk has reformed Wednesday, picking up strength and organization as it heads west into the Caribbean. Across eastern Puerto Rico, Kirk is expected to bring 2 to 4 inches with isolated maximum totals of 6 inches by Friday and Saturday. At that time NOAA's National Hurricane Center or NHC noted "two earlier ASCAT scatterometer [instrument] passes between [8 p.m. and 9 p.m. EDT on September 25] 0000-0100Z on Sept 26 indicated that the low-level center had become a little better defined, and that the inner-core wind field had contracted, now with a radius of maximum winds of about 40 nautical miles".

Later next week, Hurricane Rosa is expected to weaken into a tropical depression as it passes over California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. The storm is packing maximum sustained winds of 60 mph with tropical storm-force winds reaching outward up to 115 miles from the centre. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
