Tropical Storm Chantal continues to move rapidly away from Saint Lucia and the threats from the hazards associated with this system have diminished considerably, the Saint Lucia Meteorological Services reports.
“Tropical storm warnings have been discontinued for Saint Lucia from 2 pm today. As a result, the Saint Lucia Meteorological Services will issue no more advisories on Tropical Storm Chantal. However, small craft operators are advised to remain in port for the remainder of today,” the final weather advisory states.
“Sea-bathers should stay away from the sea since the seas will subside very slowly. Residents of areas prone to flooding and landslides should exercise extreme caution,” the release adds.
The Saint Lucia Meteorological Services says it will issue additional statements if the need arises.
