By BBN Staff: The National Meteorological Services of Belize and the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) issued advisory number 3 as Tropical Storm Nana is expected to approach Belize within 48 hours.

NEMO advises that all Emergency Operations Centre (Command Centres) countrywide will be activated today at 4 p.m. today.

Tropical Storm Nana is expected to make landfall on Belize on Thursday around midday as a Hurricane.

The watch means the public is advised to start putting your family emergency plan into action and to be prepared to seek safe shelter, (2) school managements be notified that NEMO will need to access schools as shelters, (3) boat owners start securing your vessels, (4) a price freeze is in effect (5)  public and private essential agencies and utility companies must release their employees when they need to seek shelter for their safety, (6) road infrastructure works need to be prioritized to maintain the lines of communication and (7) media houses and  telephone service providers are advised to be prepared to secure your communication infrastructure.
