URGENT ADVISORY: HURRICANE PALOMA, 4 p.m. Friday, 7 November 2008

Because of changes to Hurricane Paloma’s forecast path, the entire coast of Grand Cayman is now at serious risk from storm surge and high waves, as hurricane-force winds impact the island later today.

Repeat - all coastal areas in Grand Cayman are at high risk!

Persons are instructed to move to the highest point in their buildings, particularly if you are in a single-story building. Be sure to take provisions with you.
