NATIONAL EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTRE GIVES BVI ALL CLEAR

NATIONAL EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTRE GIVES BVI ALL CLEAR

October 14, 2014687Views

The National Emergency Operations Centre is advising
residents of the British Virgin Islands that His Excellency, Governor John S.
Duncan, OBE in consultation with the Director of the Department of Disaster
Management, Ms. Sharleen DaBreo is satisfied that the immediate threat posed by
Hurricane Gonzalo to the Territory is over.

The official ALL CLEAR has therefore been declared.  This means that the weather system continues
to move away from the Territory, but residents should exercise caution.

 During the
night, Gonzalo developed to a category 2 hurricane and the system tracked
further north of the BVI than initially projected. This resulted in the
Territory being spared the brunt of the projected impact.

Although the system continues to move away from the
BVI, rainfall associated with Gonzalo may continue to affect the territory into
the early afternoon.

Residents are advised to continue
monitoring the DDM website and the local media for advice and
instructions.
