By Aaron Humes: The National Meteorological Service and National Emergency Management Organization have been detailing their plans for the hurricane season, though as NEMO coordinator Colonel Shelton Defour reminded, planning begins at the individual and family level.

With an above-average season predicted and no way of knowing where and when a storm will strike, the Met has revamped its delivery and tools for projecting storms including the all-important radar system and beginning today will start to deliver regional forecasts for major municipalities.

NEMO has briefed the Cabinet of its plans and spoke to CEOs last week, and held its first meeting of coordinators and staff in Belmopan this morning to get everyone on the same page.

Colonel Defour and City Emergency Management Organization liaison officer Melanie Dawson detailed the major evacuation plan for the City and other vulnerable, mostly coastal areas.

For storms above category 3 and above, and where flooding is a concern, busses will be at various schools per electoral division and Belizeans are strongly to be prepared to move at a moment’s notice.

You are reminded to have a plan sketched if not written down and be ready to execute it.

We’ll have more to come, including how those exposed to COVID-19 will be treated and other critical issues.
