Red Cross issues one thousand sand bags in TCI

Providenciales, 27 Aug 2015 – One thousand sand bags have been distributed so far by the TCI Red Cross as the country braces for Tropical Storm Erika on the weekend.

Although forecasts say the storm is not favorable for significant development as it has to ride the mountains of both Puerto Rio and Santo Domingo in the DR, it is advisable that residents get ready.

The Department of Disaster Management and Emergencies last night advised that the TCI is now under Tropical Storm Watch and also informed that gale force winds are anticipated by Friday night with minor condition for Grand Turk and Provo.

TS Erika is moving WNW at 17mph.
