No Tsunami Warning, Says NEMO

278568-tsunmai-700

According to NEMO, St. Lucia is not on tsunami watch as has been circulating on social media.

The National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) has cleared the air about a WhatsApp message that has been circulating with prediction of a Tsunami hitting the Eastern Caribbean on November 2. The National Emergency authority says the message is not from NEMO or the MET office, and has advised citizens to listen only to official sources for alerts.

“These alerts will be issued by the MET Office or NEMO via the official media and the organizations’ official websites including the Government’s Official Web-portal,” a NEMO representative said, adding that persons could contact the MET Office or NEMO directly to verify information.

“As responsible social media users we should not share, forward, or rebroadcast information we receive unless we have composed that message ourselves and/or can verify the contents and origin,” the NEMO official added. “On behalf of NEMO and the MET Office I thank you in advance for ensuring this message is widely circulated.”
