Improved partnership and a stronger ability to respond to major storms is expected after a table-top hurricane exercise brought together key members of the National Emergency Operations Centre and members of the Royal Navy Caribbean Task Force.
The National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC) has been de-activated; however, Virgin Islands residents should continue to use caution throughout the day as Tropical Storm Grace moves away from the area.
Good day and GOD's blessings to you all. Yesterday, I shared with you that there was a tropical system developing in the Virgin Islands. Today, I have been advised by the Department of Disaster Management team that this system has developed further and is now Tropical Storm Grace.
