Basseterre, St. Kitts, September 19, 2021 (NEMA): The St. Kitts and Nevis Met Office and The National Emergency Management Agency wish to inform the public that the system we are currently monitoring developed into Tropical Depression #Sixteen last night and then into Tropical Storm Peter this morning.
