National Emergency Management Organization reminds public to remain alert this hurricane season

By Zoila Palma: The National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) issued a statement reminding the public to remain alert as the hurricane season has officially begun.

The outlook for the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season is for 13 to 20 named storms, six to 10 hurricanes, and three to five major hurricanes.

This does not mean that all of those systems, if developed as predicted, will affect Belize. However, it only takes one to affect us negatively.

NEMO urges the public to review emergency plans for family, ministry/department and business continuity.

In preparation, the public must clean drains, trim trees that pose danger to power lines and homes, secure roofs, windows, and doors.

Additionally, persons who live along the coast and in low-lying areas, which are flood-prone, or in homes that cannot withstand tropical cyclones (i.e. tropical depressions, tropical storms, and hurricanes) should identify a shelter for evacuation.

If you plan to evacuate when Belize is threatened by a tropical cyclone, please leave early.

NEMO thanks all public officers and uniform services for going beyond the call of duty in contributing to the relief efforts last year.

NEMO also thanks its local, regional and international partners who contributed in countless ways to provide relief assistance for the affected population.

 Belizeans are reminded to stay alert, be prepared, listen to and adhere to the official advisories and weather bulletins from NEMO and the National Meteorological Service.
