At 5 o'clock Sunday morning, Kirk was 2,500 miles from BVI and was moving in a westerly direction at 18 miles per hour.

The Met Office says at 11 am, Tropical StormKirk was about 2180 miles east-southeast of Antigua moving rapidly west at 21 mph as a minimal storm w/winds of 40 mph.

Forecasters are also watching Tropical Depression 11 near the Windward Islands and keeping a close eye on three other areas of disturbed weather in the Atlantic.
