CDPMN says long term drought situation “might possibly continue” in southern Belize, should closely monitor their water resources

By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Caribbean Drought and Precipitation Monitoring Network (CDPMN) said on Monday that a drought watch should be considered for southern Belize, Dominica, Martinique, Saint Barth’s, Sin Maarten/St-Martin, and the United States Virgin Islands (USVI).

The Barbados based CDPMN said the lack of rainfall in recent months will affect some parts of the Caribbean, particularly in the northern half of the eastern Caribbean chain, and parts of The Bahamas and Belize.

“Whereas there is little concern for short term drought by the end of December 2021 in these parts of the Caribbean, there is some concern over long term drought by the end of November 2021 that can impact large river and reservoirs and ground water,” the CDPMN said in its Caribbean Drought Bulletin issued on Monday.

The CDPMN said this could more than likely affect the northern portion of the Bahamas but warned that southern Belize and the northern portion of the eastern Caribbean “should closely monitor their water resources”.

During the period June to August, “mixed conditions prevailed over the three-month period in the eastern Caribbean,” said the drought bulletin.

The northern Bahamas was slightly to severely dry and Belize ranged from normal in the west to moderately dry in eastern areas.

The CDPMN said the long-term drought situation is evolving in the Bahamas and “might possibly develop or continue” in southern Belize, Dominica, Martinique, Saint Barth’s, Sint Maarten/St-Martin, and the USVI.
