Taking into consideration the current forecast for Tropical Storm Issac as advised by the Jamaica Meteorological Service, the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) wishes to advise the public that whilst Jamaica is not under a Storm Watch, the current forecast will bring TS Issac into the Northwestern Caribbean by late Friday to early Saturday. The ODPEM notes the anxiety of the population and given the uncertainty of the phenomenon encourages the public to use this time to examine their plans and arrangements, should Jamaica become threatened.
The ODPEM continues to make preparations and deliver initial alerts to emergency services, inclusive of the Parish Disaster Coordinators and community contacts.
We encourage the public to be attentive to the advisories disseminated from the Jamaica Meteorological Service and the ODPEM.
