Tropical Depression number 5

Published 2nd August 2012, 3:32pm

Hazard Management Cayman Islands and the National Weather Service are currently monitoring Tropical Depression number 5 which is located east of the Windward Islands. Tropical Depression number 5 does not pose an immediate threat to the Cayman Islands. The system is disorganized and while the National Hurricane Center in Miami is currently predicting only a 10 to 20 percent chance that the Cayman Islands could be affected by Tropical Storm winds within the next 5 days, the Tropical Depression serves as a reminder that residents need to be prepared.

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.
