Update on SBTF in relation to Hurricane Patricia

Here is a quick update on where the core team thinks we are at 1400 UTC.

  • initial reports are positive with less damage and lower loss of life than feared
  • there is still a risk of flooding and landslip
  • we are in contact with agencies on the ground
  • we think that we may not be activated but we will remain at standby for the moment until the situation becomes clearer
  • it looks like the warning messages, including on social media, really helped encourage people to take the situation seriously and to take shelter

Please stay alert for a possible activation.
