Director of the Meteorological Service Branch, Evan Thompson, is urging Jamaicans to remain vigilant, as the Caribbean enters the peak of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season.

In relation to tropical storm Grace, he noted that “it was remarkable how many persons, even after a tropical storm warning was issued for Jamaica, didn’t even know that there was ever a tropical storm watch that was put in place for the island for over 24-hours.”

The tropical storm warning was lifted on Wednesday morning, as the system moved away from the island.

Meanwhile, Mr. Thompson advised that there is currently no sign of any other notable weather system that could potentially develop within Jamaica’s vicinity.
