The Department of Disaster Management (ODM) is calling on the population to monitor a Tropical Wave (TW) system that was on Friday afternoon located over 1000 miles East-South-East of the Eastern Caribbean island chain out in the Atlantic Ocean.
According to the National Hurricane Center out of Miami, the TW shows signs of organization and environmental conditions are conducive for gradual development over the next few days.
The TW is moving West-ward to West-Northwestward at 15 to 20 miles per hour.
The ODM will be closely monitoring this system for possible further development.
Residents should use the weekend to review hurricane season preparations.
Households, business-owners and contractors should have made the necessary preparations and these should be in place.
The ODM has been recommending about preparing for the 2011 Atlantic hurricane season since mid-May and throughout the months of June and July.
