Grenada Under Tropical Storm Warning

Sunday, June 18, 2017 8:32 PM- George's, Grenada

St. George’s, Grenada – Sunday 18 June, 2017: The National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA) continues to monitor the weather with the technical assistance of the Meteorological Office at the Maurice Bishop International Airport.

At 5:00 p.m. Potential Tropical Cyclone #2 was located 1310 Km (815 miles) East South-East of Grenada.  The system is moving West at about 23 miles per hour.  

A Potential Tropical Cyclone refers to a disturbance that has not yet become a tropical cyclone, but which poses the threat of bringing tropical storm or hurricane conditions to land areas within 48 hours.

As such there is a Tropical Storm Warning for Grenada and its dependencies.

A tropical storm Warning means that storm-like conditions can affect the geographic space within 36 hours. It literally means "be on guard!"

Grenada and its dependencies can expect 50 to 125mm of rainfall.

NaDMA takes this opportunity to remind us all that we should continue to be prepared at all times for all emergencies.

Also, it is a good time to ensure that all drains and water ways around your property are cleared from all obstructions and that you have in place your hurricane plan and preparedness kit.

The Agency in collaboration with the Meteorological Services will continue to monitor this Tropical Warning and will update the public as necessary.

For addition information, please contact the National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA) on 440-8390-4 & 440-0838, or email address nadma@spiceisle.com. NaDMA, the official source for all disaster related information in Grenada.
