Atlantic Heats Up as Season Peaks
Basseterre, St. Kitts, September 11, 2019 (ZIZ News): The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and the St. Kitts Meteorological Services are monitoring 2 systems that are on track towards the Caribbean Sea, after having left the coast of Africa last week.
Currently, Invest 94L is the lesser threat, but the closer of the two systems to our federation, about 600 miles south east of St. Kitts and Nevis.
As of Wednesday, September 11th, predictions are no longer suggesting further development before it is forecast to move through the Leewards, around Saturday.
According to a statement from NEMA, the second system has the potential to become Invest 96l and is expected to also approach our area by this weekend.
There is a likelihood that the future “Invest 96L” May begin to develop over the weekend, passing through the Caribbean island chain by Monday, 16th September.
Persons are encouraged to seek information through the local media, St. Kitts Meteorological Services and the NEMA in order to remain informed in the event that this or any other system becomes an imminent threat to our federation.
Accordingly, residents are again reminded to be ready to activate family and business plans, to check your contact information for the emergency services as well as your district management teams, to ensure that your homes are prepared for any potential impact and to be ready to heed the call from NEMA and St. Kitts Met Office, in the event that urgent action should be taken.
