All commercial activities and the public service resumed as normal today July 19, 2017 after the Tropical Storm Warning for St. Vincent and the Grenadines was discontinued.
The warning was discontinued as of 11pm last night, and the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) issued an ALL CLEAR for St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The Argyle International Airport resumed operations at 7am today.
The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Services advised that “At 11:00 pm, a full circulation was no longer identified for Tropical Storm ‘Don’. For such, a tropical storm warning is no longer in effect for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The system has degenerated to a trough of low pressure.”
“Radar imagery has shown a significant decrease in shower activity across Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Occasional gusty winds, cloudy to overcast skies and light to moderate showers are still possible tonight into tomorrow.”
Six families sought shelter in three emergency shelters on mainland St. Vincent but there have been no reports of damage at this time from the passage of Tropical Storm Don.
