NEMO to Host National Validation Workshop on Document for Disaster Risk Reduction for St. Vincent and the Grenadines PDF Print

The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) will host a National Validation workshop on the Draft Country Document for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) for St. Vincent and the Grenadines, 25th – 26th September, 2014.

The key objectives of the workshop are:

  1. To present and revise the draft Country Document for DRR;

  2. To identify immediate DRR priorities at the national level; and

  3. To identify key actions and next steps for DRR in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The country document for DRR is envisioned to be useful as an important national reference document to guide the design of policies and strategies, promote decision making, and the formulation of DRR actions and activities for bringing about sustainable development, as well as facilitate the establishment of channels for mutual help and cooperation.

The National Validation workshop on the Draft Country Document for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) will be held with support from the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) for Barbados and the OECS. It will take place at NEMO’s Conference Room, Old Montrose, beginning at 8:30 a.m. each day.

 

 

 
Residents in flood and landslide areas are ask to exercise caution PDF Print

RESIDENTS IN FLOOD AND LANDSLIDE PRONE AREAS ARE ASKED TO CONTINUE TO EXERCISE CAUTION AND BE ON THE ALERT.

 

Overcast skies, showers and periods of rain affected Saint Vincent and the Grenadines this morning due to lingering moisture associated with a trough system.

Moreover, these conditions are expected to continue this afternoon and may persist into the night with the possibility of isolated thunderstorms as the trough continues to affect the islands.

 

The tropical wave with axis extending along 46 W is expected to approach the islands by early Thursday. Although the intensity associated with this wave is limited due to dry Sahara air, caution should be exercised as an interaction with an upper level trough is possible.

 
Flood Warning is in effect for the next 12-24 hours PDF Print

A FLOOD WARNING IS IN EFFECT FOR ST. VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES FOR THE NEXT 12-24 HOURS.

A flood warning in this case means that flooding may be occurring already.

Cloudy to overcast skies with moderate to heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms which are currently affecting the island are associated with the interaction of a tropical wave and a trough system. This activity is expected to persist for the next twelve to twenty four hours.

Due to the already saturated soils and the mountainous nature of the island, some flash-flooding can occur. Persons in areas prone to flooding and landslides are asked to be on the alert.

The St Vincent Met. Services will continue to monitor these systems and issue updates as necessary.
