DON’T TAKE TROPICAL STORM DORIAN LIGHTLY

Minister of Home Affairs, Edmund Hinkson, is urging Barbadians to continue with their preparations for Tropical Storm Dorian, saying it is not a system “to be taken lightly“.

Mr. Hinkson made the comments while addressing a media briefing to update the public about the approaching storm.

The minister urged Barbadians to ensure that their surroundings are secure. He stressed that they should make sure that there were no potential missiles on their property.

He emphasized that Government was doing everything possible to ensure the safety of Barbadians. “We can’t stop the storm from coming, but we have a duty to ensure we are as prepared as possible and that our people are as safe as possible.

Meteorologist of the Barbados Meteorological Services, Wayne McGeary, said the system was showing signs of better organization and as it came closer to the island, there was potential for further intensification.

Meanwhile, all category one shelters and three category two schools, namely St. Ambrose Primary, Westbury Primary and People’s Cathedral, have already been opened.
