By BBN Staff: The National Meteorological Services of Belize (MET Service) and the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) issued advisory number 2 on a Tropical Wave with an accompanying broad area of low pressure over the Central Caribbean Sea.

This system has changed little in organization and continues to move to the west at around 15 to 20 miles per hour (mph).

“ The models used at the MET Service do not show significant development of this system before it reaches our coast, the National Hurricane Center still gives this system a high chance of becoming a tropical depression in the next couple of days,” NEMO noted.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) says that regardless of development, this system will likely bring heavy rainfall across the country starting late on Wednesday night and continuing on Thursday.

NEMO advises the public to be prepared:

 (1) Avoid being near the coast, or swamp, if you live on the cayes and along the coast be familiar with the evacuation routes. Know which shelter you will go to.

(2) Protect windows with plywood or shutters,

 (3) Review your family emergency plan, consider all COVID 19 measures,

 (4) If you can afford to, keep handy emergency supplies such as first aid kit, basic tools, lanterns, batteries, flashlights, and nonperishable foods and water.

(5) Plan for one (1) gallon of drinking water per person per day. Prepare your car in case of an evacuation. Fill your tank, and service check your vehicle.

 (6) Keep an extra supply of medication. If a member of your household is bed-ridden, seek medical advice. Notify authorities ahead of time if you have persons in your neighborhood that may require special assistance to evacuate due to a medical condition.

 (7) Secure your important documents and identification in waterproof containers, and electronically. Save the emergency contact numbers for NEMO, the police, fire, and medical facility in your cell phone.

 (8) Pets are not allowed in shelters, make plans for your pets, continue to trim trees, clear drains, and secure outdoor items.

It is recommended that farmers make plans to move their animals to higher ground and stockpile feed when required.

Stay alert and listen to official sources of information only.
