Tropical Storm Ernesto

Published 3rd August 2012, 12:15pm

Hazard Management Cayman Islands and the National Weather Service are currently monitoring Tropical Storm Ernesto which is located close to St. Lucia and heading west at 21 mph.  Tropical Storm Ernesto remains poorly organized and does not pose an immediate threat to the Cayman Islands, but some strengthening could occur over the next few days and residents should remain alert to the possible threat posed by this system.  The Cayman Islands are currently included in the National Hurricane Centre’s Potential Forecast Track cone.

Residents should have a week’s supply of non-perishable food and water, a portable radio, a flashlight, and extra batteries available at all times, but particularly during the hurricane season. For a complete list of items you should have in your emergency supply kit, and other tips for protecting your life and property visit Cayman Prepared.ky; or stop by at the Hazard Management office in the Government Administration Building.
