Thank you for your patience as the forecasting community, the Department of Disaster Management, the Acting Governor and I work diligently to decipher the conflicting signals emanating from the dynamically changing system that is Tropical Depression Karen.
Good day and God’s blessings to all the people of the Virgin Islands. As you would have already heard from His Excellency the Acting Governor Mr. David Archer, the Territory is now under a Tropical Storm Warning, which means that we expect Tropical Storm Karen will bring some tropical storm conditions to our shores within the next 36 hours.
I hope that you have found some time over the course of the weekend to not only ensure that you have done what is needed to increase your preparedness levels but to also rest and rejuvenate, because we begin this week facing the approach of Tropical Storm Karen.
Good day and God’s blessings to all the people of the Virgin Islands.
As you would have already heard from His Excellency the Acting Governor Mr. David Archer this morning, Government, through the National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC), is closely monitoring the progress of Hurricane Jerry.
Good morning to all. I’d like to begin this message by thanking you the people of the Virgin Islands. Even though we closed out yesterday with a degree of uncertainty about what Hurricane Jerry might bring, many of you heeded the advice of the Department of Disaster Management and my “better safe than sorry”...
Earlier today, we learned that Hurricane Jerry has developed to the east of the Leeward Islands. The Department of Disaster Management has been closely following the development of Jerry and other systems in this, the most active period of the Atlantic Hurricane Season.
