Saint Lucians Warned To Brace For More Active Hurricane Season

Press Release:- Officials from the Saint Lucia Meteorological Services and the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) recently appeared on the National Television Network (NTN) where they disclosed that the hurricane season is forecast to be more active with more intense hurricanes.

Director of Met. Services, Andre Joyeux, explained that evidence indicates more severe droughts and hurricanes for the Atlantic region going forward.

Director of NEMO, Dorine Gustave, said with the country already battling the COVID-19 pandemic, its resources are stretched thin; therefore the public should not let its guard down. The director noted that preparations for the hurricane season had long commenced.

This includes the training and strengthening of District Disaster Committees, as well as new protocols due to the advent of COVID-19.

NEMO has also commenced engagements with the public service so as to implement business continuity plans in case of an emergency.

Additionally, a training workshop, geared toward all relevant stakeholders, will be held through the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) on June 4, so as to address situational awareness.

NEMO has also gotten approval from the World Bank to procure equipment for the Emergency Operational Center aimed at improving communication including getting more reliable networks, obtaining and installing VHF radios, distributing handheld radios at strategic locations, as well as procuring search and rescue drones.

  1. God have to give St.Lucia a Helping Hand during that Hurricane Season .The Ministry Responsible For Road Rehabilation Refuse to give the Locals Contracts to Clear the Drains and Culverts

  2. Hope this current administration is taking heed! With the financial fopa s that covid has revealed…we need to prepare for the season and stop spending public monies on non priority interventions. That choc housing project cannot wait? That hia airport project cannot wait ? I just don’t effing get it!!!! We remember Thomas like it were yesterday…and we surely cannot deal with another one with a broke ass treasury!

    Plus tell me if I am wrong in my thinking.

    Regards

  3. May the Lord b with us during the 6 month Hurricane Season.
    We cant endure anymore hardship, pain and suffering.

  4. The Lord is never far from us – it is we who have lived like there’s no tomorrow.
    Eating and drinking having a great time; but when the Floods came Noah was
    ready. Keep smoking your Weed, party and drink yourself silly, drive crazy,
    knock people down while racing under the influence, live high, show off u fool.
    These are not times of the spiritual blind: keep it up with the Pharaohs of this
    present generation for He will “come like a thief in the night” you’ve had enough
    warnings – But if we call unto the Lord, the one crucified for us, he will hear from
    Heaven & He will Heal our Land. Don’t be like the Egyptian who defied Moses
    Forget your pride, down on your knees, pray together and pray for others too.
