The Meteorological  Service is warning the public not to be complacent even though there is a below average prediction for this year’s Atlantic Hurricane season. The Department is reminding the public  that one disaster is all it takes to  devastate the country.

Normally an average hurricane season would consist of 12 storms six hurricanes and three major hurricanes The predication for the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season is slightly below average with 13 named storms five hurricanes and two  major hurricanes expected. But Director of the Meteorological  Services Venantius Descartes says the public must always remember that this is not cast in stone and that  just one disaster can change thousands of lives

Being prepared by bracing for the worst cannot be overemphasized. The need for family evacuation plans has been stressed in recent times
