Local officials continue to monitor Tropical Storm Jerry closely as forecasters say although the storm has weakened, it is still anticipated to pass over Bermuda, “most likely sometime on Tuesday”.
National Security Minister Wayne Caines held another news conference this afternoon, to update the public on the latest information coming out of today’s Emergency Measures Organisation (EMO) meeting.
But he warned: “This could change.”
“It is too soon to tell. As I stressed yesterday, we strongly encourage everyone to remain in a hurricane readiness mode,” he said.
“If you know anyone who does not have access to online media sites – specifically our seniors – please encourage them to listen 100.1 FM at 1:30 pm and again tomorrow at 1:30 pm so that they can stay abreast of the storm updates,” he added.
