Closely Monitoring the Weather… but No System Formed As Yet

Catherine Cumberbatch

According to the NEMO advisory, should the prediction change for the worse, all factors considered, Belize can be facing a significant threat by Tuesday.  Nonetheless, Chief Met Officer Cumberbatch reiterated that nothing has formed thus far.

“No system has formed so far.  There is no tropical depression, there is no tropical storm, there is no hurricane that formed.  Models are only saying what they are projecting that a system is likely to develop near the east coast of Honduras and Nicaragua by weekend and could probably become something in the coming week.  It has a very low chance, twenty percent.  I repeat again, there is no system at this time that poses no threat to Belize.  There is no tropical depression.  There is no tropical storm.  There is no hurricane.  The models, these are things that project long-term conditions and they are saying there is only a twenty percent chance that something can develop off the east coast of Honduras and Nicaragua by weekend. The National Emergency Management Organization has their own tasks and their task is also to alert the people.  Look, this is what something is likely to happen, so Belizeans, we are in the hurricane season, don’t get too relaxed.  Get your hurricane plan in order, get what you need, the hurricane plan in order, so if something arises, you will be better prepared to handle it and move forward.”

 

Public officers are advised to be prepared for possible NEMO emergency duties early next week.  Everyone else is advised to use the weekend to prepare and review family emergency plans.
