GREAT BAY, Sint Maarten (DCOMM) – The Meteorological Department of Sint Maarten (MDS) said on Tuesday in a Special Weather Bulletin that Tropical Storm Dorian is projected to pass approximately 175 miles southwest of the country early Wednesday.
Due to the fact that the storm poses no significant threat to the country, the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) meeting that was planned for late Tuesday afternoon was cancelled, the Fire Department/Office of Disaster Management (ODM) said on Tuesday.
The MDS says that showers, thunderstorms and gusty winds are possible from the outer bands of Tropical Storm Dorian as it continues to make its track across the eastern Caribbean Sea towards Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
Dorian is the fourth named storm of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season. The Office of Disaster Management is reminding the Sint Maarten community that we are now in the peak period of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season and everyone is reminded to stay vigilant in the coming weeks.
