All eyes are on the Eastern Caribbean, where Tropical Storm Dorian continues to gain strength.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

A tropical storm watch has also been issued for Dominica, Martinique, Grenada and its dependencies.

On its current path, Dorian is expected to pass north of Jamaica, over Cuba, on Friday morning.

In Barbados, CEO of the Barbados Agriculture Society, James Paul, is warning farmers not to take the storm for granted.

CBC News in Barbados is also reporting that several cruise lines have changed their itinerary, fearing the threat from advancing tropical storm Dorian to the Eastern Caribbean,

They include Royal Caribbean, Harmony of the Seas, Allure of the Seas and Symphony of the Seas.

Royal Caribbean says it’s making sure guests covered under various cruise deals are not inconvenienced by potential bad weather.

And Harmony of the Seas has changed from an Eastern Caribbean itinerary to a Western Caribbean itinerary.

Meanwhile, authorities in the United States are also keeping a close watch for Dorian’s potential path near Puerto Rico, and eventually to Florida.
