Forecasters have officially categorised Hurricane Bery as a category 4 storm. Beryl made landfall on Monday on the Caribbean island of Carriacou in Grenada.

This is the first hurricane of the Atlantic season and forecasters have warned that the conditions surrounding her might be “extremely dangerous”.

As Beryl moves across the southeastern and central Caribbean from Monday to Wednesday, the National Hurricane Centre has warned that people should prepare for “life-threatening winds and dangerous storm surge”.

Other Caribbean islands where hurricane warnings were issued include Barbados, Tobago, Grenada, St. Vincent, the Grenadines, and Jamaica.

Tropical storm warnings were issued for the islands of St. Lucia, Trinidad, and Martinique as well as parts of the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

Beryl has been described as “extremely dangerous and rare” and she’s made history as well.

CBS reports that it took Beryl only 42 hours to strengthen from a tropical depression to a major hurricane – a feat accomplished only six other times in Atlantic hurricane history, and with 1 September as the earliest date, according to hurricane expert Sam Lillo.

Hurricanes are typically never recorded this early in hurricane season with only two hurricanes ever being able to do the same.
