By Aaron Humes: Tonight a Belizean delegation participating in the Board of Governors Meeting of the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) is stranded on the island of St Lucia which is being affected by Tropical Storm Bret.

CEO in the Ministry of Economic Development Osmond Martinez and CEO in the Ministry of Valentino Shal, Chief Executive Officer in the Ministry of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour and Local Government were to leave St. Lucia today back to Miami then on to Belize, but got stuck in St. Lucia due to the closure of the Hewanorra International Airport caused by the Tropical Storm.

The center of Bret passed between St Lucia and St Vincent this evening and is expected to continue west, bringing further rain, high wind and other storm damage to islands in the vicinity including Barbados and Martinique.

The team is sheltered in place at the Landing Resort in northern St. Lucia and hopes to leave back to Belize by tomorrow if no major damage is reported and if the airport reopens.
