By BBN Staff: Today, the National Meteorological Service of Belize and the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) issued advisory 1 informing the nation of a broad area of low pressure that is expected to form over the western Caribbean Sea during the weekend.
The system is forecasted to move westward toward Central America early next week, and some development is possible if the low remains over water while moving near the coasts of Honduras, Guatemala, and Belize.
There is a 20 percent formation chance throughout the next 5 days.
NEMO says that if the prediction changes for the worse, considering all the factors, by Tuesday we might be facing a significant threat.
Everyone is advised to review their plan and make all necessary preparations.
Public Officers are advised to be prepared for possible NEMO emergency duties by early next week.
All are advised to use the weekend to prepare and review their family emergency plan. People in flood-prone areas, farmers, fishers, and people on the islands need to remain vigilant and be prepared.
The NEMO Emergency Hotline is 936. NEMO’s Emergency Coordinators can be reached as follows:
The public is advised to remain alert.
