St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): After causing flight disruptions and dumping rains on the southern Caribbean islands Tuesday, Tropical Storm Don has degenerated to an open wave in the far southeastern Caribbean Sea.

Grenada closed its airport yesterday, while St. Vincent and the Grenadines shut down public and private services, as they along with other islands braced for Tropical Storm Don.

No major damage was reported as a result of the rains, except for minor incidents of flooding in some parts of Trinidad.

LIAT announced Wednesday morning that it has started operations to stations that were closed due to the passage of Tropical Storm Don.

While Don appears to be fizzling out, flash flooding and mudslides remain possible into Wednesday in the southern Windward Islands.

According to the St. Kitts Met Office in a weather bulletin issued early Wednesday, Tropical Storm Don has dissipated into a trough system, which will cause more showers and thunderstorms across Trinidad and Tobago and cause occasionally cloudy spells and a moderate chance of showers across the Southern Windward Islands and Barbados Wednesday morning. 

The Met Office continues to keep an eye on a second weather disturbance located midway between the Cape Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles, which is producing area of disorganized shower and thunderstorms. 

According to the National Hurricane centre, some gradual development of this system is possible during the next day or two, while it moves northwest at 10-15 miles per hour.
