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.
Acting Director of the Department of Disaster Management (DDM), Mr. Jasen Penn has said that the Virgin Islands should stay vigilant in its monitoring of conditions as the coming months are expected to bring continuous weather disturbances to the Atlantic basin.
For the second time in a week, I am bringing you a message about a weather system with the potential to impact the British Virgin Islands. For the moment, forecasters are calling this system Potential Tropical Cyclone Seven.
