By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Atlantic Hurricane Season officially opened on June 1 and goes through to November.

Belizeans remain alert tuning in to official sources of information from the National Meteorological Service, NEMO, the media and other official sources.

In the Atlantic, forecasters are currently monitoring Tropical Cyclone 1 in the Gulf of Mexico.

NEMO Minister Andre Perez says that the team is prepared.

“We have discussed. I’ve had several meetings, many meetings relating to that. The fire, and after the fire and how we will do with recovery, and also including the preparations in the event of floods, we will have to re-deploy so all of this is being planned out of course we are exhausted, but we are prepared,” Perez said.

“It’s the entire region we are looking at the floods and you saw what happened in the news. We saw it up north, especially in the village of August Pine Ridge in the western part of the Orange Walk district.

But you know NEMO is far more way ahead than where we were 10 – 15 years ago and I want to see that positivity and the engagement that we have as the minister and our CEO the entire department the way how disaster risk management is inherently linked and lined up with the Ministry of Blue Economy,” Perez explained.
