Acting Prime Minister Hon. Lenard Montoute has advised that business houses close at noon on Sep. 28.

Minister Montoute’s announcement follows a statement made yesterday, that all schools remain closed due to the approaching weather system.

“The center of the approaching weather system is expected to pass over Saint Lucia sometime after midday today, Wednesday, Sep. 28. With the passage of this weather system, we expect heavy rains, high winds, thunder and lightning.
