NEMO, Met Office Advise Caution As Tropical Wave Affects Saint Lucia


The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) and Saint Lucia Meteorological Services have advised residents in flood-prone communities to exercise caution, as a tropical wave affects the island.

Both agencies have warned of the possibility of flash flooding and land slippage.

However by late Wednesday, the country should experience a break in the inclement weather it has been experiencing.

Director of Meteorological Services Andre Joyeux explained that most of the weather is further North.

But  Joyeux explained that Saint Lucia is still getting some cloudy areas, scattered showers, and isolated thunderstorms.

“So the forecast for today would be cloudy with scattered showers, some of which would be heavy and isolated thunderstorms,” he disclosed Tuesday.

The Meteorological Services Director explained that the cloud mass was quite extensive.

But he said it would have passed through by Wednesday, with any remnants resulting in a few showers.

Nevertheless, Joyeux disclosed that the weather should clear by late Wednesday.

  1. Mr joyeux you really should have remained quiet until the system passed. Clearly you had no clue this was coming and I really don’t blame you because no doubt you had no access to equipment to assist you. This is an aftercast not a forecast

  2. Hmm lets watch and listen uh. There will be persons that will still not adhere to these cautions and they are the ones who will cry and complain

  3. People will still force themselves to go to Ricky T and Friends on the Saab tonight. That weather wont stop them. Tell them come to work or school in that weather and is like the world ending. #Luciansss !!!
