The Indian cricket team finds itself stranded in Barbados after Hurricane Beryl struck the Caribbean island on Monday morning. Originally, the team’s itinerary included a flight to New York, followed by a connecting flight to Dubai, and finally a return to India. They were scheduled to depart from Barbados on Monday at 11 am. However, the departure was delayed due to Beryl, which has intensified from a Category 3 to a Category 4 hurricane, making it extremely dangerous.

The National Hurricane Center has indicated that Beryl is expected to remain an extremely dangerous major hurricane as it reaches the Windward Islands on Monday morning (local time). It is forecasted to produce 3 to 6 inches of rain across Barbados and the Windward Islands through Monday.

As Beryl’s core moves through the Windward Islands into the eastern Caribbean, it is anticipated to maintain its status as an extremely dangerous major hurricane, posing significant risks to the regions in its path.
