NEMO issues first advisory for 2017 hurricane season

The National Emergency Management Organization, NEMO, has issued its first Advisory for this 2017 Hurricane Season. It informs of  a large area of disturbed weather which has formed over the northwest Caribbean Sea and adjacent land areas of Central America. NEMO says that the system is unlikely to develop significantly within 24 hours, but there is a medium chance for further development during Sunday and Monday as it moves north-westward across the Yucatan Peninsula and into the Gulf of Mexico. The advisory says that even though significant development is not expected at this time, the system is expected to produce moderate to heavy rainfall over the country. Rainfall is expected to increase over most areas tonight and persist through the weekend. Those rains are expected to cause localized flooding over low lying coastal areas, and may lead to flash flooding near rivers and stream especially in the south. NEMO advises persons in low lying areas to make necessary arrangements to protect life and property.vlcsnap-00017 vlcsnap-00018 vlcsnap-00019
