HURRICANE MARIA… FINAL ADVISORY

                                                    

THE SAINT LUCIA METEOROLOGICAL SERVICES ISSUES ALL CLEAR   

 
HURRICANE MARIA CONTINUES TO TRACK NORTHWESTWARD AWAY FROM SAINT LUCIA AND THE THREATS FROM THE HAZARDS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SYSTEM CONTINUE TO DIMINISH. 
 
AT 8:00 AM TODAY, THE CENTRE OF HURRICANE MARIA WAS LOCATED  194 MILES OR 312 KM NORTHWEST OF SAINT LUCIA. SCATTERED MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL AND GUSTY WINDS ASSOCIATED WITH THE OUTER BANDS OF MARIA ARE EXPECTED DURING THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS. HOWEVER, CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO GRADUALLY IMPROVE AS THE DAY PROGRESSES.

 

TROPICAL STORM WARNINGS HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED FOR SAINT LUCIA FROM 8:00 AM, TODAY. AS A RESULT, THE SAINT LUCIA METEOROLOGICAL SERVICES WILL ISSUE NO MORE ADVISORIES ON HURRICANE MARIA.

HOWEVER, SMALL CRAFT OPERATORS ARE ADVISED TO REMAIN IN PORT FOR THE REMAINDER OF TODAY.  RESIDENTS OF AREAS PRONE TO FLOODING AND LANDSLIDES SHOULD CONTINUE TO EXERCISE CAUTION.  THE SAINT LUCIA METEOROLOGICAL SERVICES WILL ISSUE ADDITIONAL STATEMENTS IF THE NEED ARISES.
