NEMA boss says Tropics to remain ‘storm free’ for next 10-14 days

NASSAU, The Bahamas — Local and global weather instruments show that the Tropics (from the West Coast of Africa to New Providence) will remain storm free for at least the next 10-14 days, the Director of the country’s National Emergency Management Agency said Tuesday.    

NEMA Director, Captain Stephen Russell’s announcement of a “clear tropics,” comes on the eve of the anniversary dates of Hurricanes Andrew and Sandy (August 23).    

Disaster Management officials say the news of a “clear tropics” is good news as August and September are considered two of the more dangerous – if not the most dangerous months — insofar as hurricane activity is concerned.    

NEMA officials continue, however, to advise those citizens who haven’t already made preparations for the 2013 Hurricane Season to do so.    

“The news that all is clear in the Tropics is good news for our citizenry and for those of us in Disaster Management,” Captain Russell said to a rousing round of applause.    

“With tomorrow (Friday) being the 21st anniversary of Hurricane Andrew and likewise the second anniversary of Hurricane Irene which impacted some 11 islands and cays back in 2011 and 2553 homes and/or families, and with us also approaching the first anniversary of Hurricane Sandy (October 26), this is indeed really good news,” Captain Russell added.
