St.Kitts & Nevis: Nevis Disaster Management Minister urges public, ‘Be alert, ready as TS Isaac approaches Caribbean’

Hon. Alexis Jeffers, Deputy Premier of Nevis and Minister responsible for Disaster Management (NDMD), is urging the public to be attentive to media alerts and to be in a state of readiness as Tropical Storm Isaac approaches the chain of Caribbean Islands.

Jeffers encouraged the public on Sept. 10, as he toured emergency shelters designated by the Nevis Island Administration for the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

“The exercise this morning is just so that we are getting ourselves much more in a state of readiness even though we are taking it to another level to make sure that anything that happens we are prepared to the best of our abilities,” the minister said. “I want to ask the general public to continue to follow the various media houses that put out information from time to time. Of course you can check also the Nevis Disaster Management Department’s website [www.ndmd.kn] for additional information and social media would be used as much as possible to get information out.”

The minister was accompanied by a team comprising of officers from the Department of Physical Planning, NDMD, Department of Community Development, and the Ministry of Health. They visited a number of shelters as part of an ongoing exercise to ascertain whether there any deficiencies and to seek to take corrective measures if any are found.
