Updated Statement by Prime Minister Honourable Allen Chastanet on Tropical Storm Harvey:
Good morning Saint Lucia, the latest information from NEMO and the Met Office indicates that Tropical Storm Harvey is expected to intensify over the next two hours. As such, we are anticipating that Offices, commercial and government should remain closed until 1:00 pm.
The 1:00 pm time is conditional to receiving the all clear by 12 noon. I am asking everyone to remain indoors and continue to exercise caution. I am also asking everyone to stay close to your radios for any further updates.
At this time we are anticipating that the airports should be opening up at 10:00 am. I am asking everyone before they go to the airport, to check with SLASPA or to check with your airline.
Again, I thank you very much for your consideration and may God continue to bless Saint Lucia.
