By Benjamin Flowers: In preparation for the arrival of Tropical Cyclone 5 which is expected to make landfall in Belize by Wednesday, November 2, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology has issued a notice that classes for all schools will have an amended schedule for the coming week.
The Ministry said that classes will continue as normal for Monday, October 31; however, as of Tuesday, November 1, classes will be suspended until further notice.
“Schools, especially schools that serve as hurricane shelters, are asked to ensure that hurricane plans are put into effect and all property and equipment are safely secured. The Ministry also encourages our education community to heed all advisories from NEMO and to make every effort to secure their property and personal well-being,” the Ministry said.
Tropical Cyclone 5 is moving across the Caribbean Sea and is projected to make a direct impact on Belize; however, forecasters are still monitoring to see if it will achieve hurricane strength before its arrival.
Belizeans are encouraged to stay informed of the latest developments with this weather system. The National Emergency Management Organization, as of Sunday, has been activated in full emergency mode in preparation for the weather system making landfall.
The National Meteorological Service of Belize is hosting a press briefing today to discuss the storm and its implications.
