Weather Update from Meteorological Office PDF Print

 

6:00 P.M WEATHER UPDATE FROM THE ST. VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES METEOROLOGICAL OFFICE.

 

According to the 6:00 p.m. weather update received from the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Office, the area of low pressure system is centered near 11north… 51 west or about 500 miles east - south east of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

 

A hurricane hunter aircraft investigating the system this afternoon found showers and thunderstorm accompanying the system have remained fairly persistent and while environmental conditions are only marginally conducive for development, any additional strengthening could lead to the formation of a tropical depression within the next 12-24 hours.

 

This system is moving towards the west-north west at 20 mph and this general motion is expected to continue over the next few days.

 

On its present track and forecast, the center of the system is expected to pass to the north east of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines on Friday afternoon into evening.

 

Regardless of its development or the location of the center from St. Vincent and the Grenadines, this system has the potential to generate pockets of moderate to heavy showers, scattered thunderstorms and occasional gusty winds across the island.

 

The Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Office will continue to monitor the movement and development of this system.

 

NEMO is urging everyone to continue to monitor their radios for more information as we continue to monitor this system.

 

The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) is also reminding the public that we are in the hurricane season and it is very important to be prepared:

 

  • Stock your home with emergency supplies and full your vehicle tank with fuel.

  • Trim all overhanging branches and trees.

  • Make plans to protect people with special needs and pets.

  • Ensure that all drains around the house are cleared of all debris to avoid flooding during heavy rainfall.

  • Owners of Businesses are encouraged to review their disaster plan for their business at this time.

 

  • Head of all sub-committees and response agencies are hereby placed on alert. Please continue to monitor the approach of this system.

 

  • Families are encouraged to create a family disaster plan and include all members of the family in this activity so that each member will know what to do in the event that we are impacted.

 

  • Learn about your community's emergency plans, warning signals, evacuation routes, and emergency shelters.

NEMO to Host National Workshop - Early Warning Systems

The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) in collaboration with UNDP Barbados, the OECS and the European Commission Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (DIPECHO) will host a national workshop of the Community Alerts Project, 4th – 5th June, 2014.

NEMO, UNDP Barbados and the OECS are implementing a Community Alerts Project through funding from DIPECHO, to enhance community resilience and demonstrate a coherent approach to emergency alerting. The project will be implemented in the communities of Kingstown, Owia and Union Island in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and communities in Grenada and Dominica.


The Objectives of the project include:

  • Improve awareness to natural hazards and the associated preparation and response protocols in pilot communities;
  • Demonstrate the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) as a process to improve community alerting with a view to wider application within the pilot countries and other Caribbean states.


The workshop will take place at NEMO’S Conference Room, Old Montrose, and will begin at 9:00 a.m. each day.


Additional Information



The workshop follows the mission of the CAP technical expert as well as the Public Awareness specialist and will allow for the provisions of a community-driven choice for the alerting system, and provided feedback towards the final design of the communications strategy, and emergency alerting public awareness products.

The Euro 547,000 (USD734, 000) project will be implemented in six (6) pilot communities in three (3) countries; Dominica, Grenada and St. Vincent and the Grenadines and will come to an end in December 2014.
