Be Prepared Barbadians, it is the Hurricane Season

Prime Minister Mia Mottley issued the following statement last night after a meeting held with the emergency management team to prepare for the potential threat posed by Hurricane Issac – listen to Prime Minister Mia Mottley.

Further to the North CAT 4 Hurricane Florence is about to slam the Carolinas.

What struck the blogmaster after listening to the Prime Minister’s press conference was how woefully unprepared and under-resourced we are to manage a catastrophe of any magnitude. Some of us recall about five years ago when Barbados lost power for over a week in many areas when a storm passed over us, repeat, a storm. Issac is forecast to be a Category 1 when it passes about 150 miles north of the island.

The blogmaster accepts that God is a Bajan, however, out of an abundance of commonsense, Barbadians are encouraged to store non-perishable food and potable water, flash-lights and batteries, matches, etc.

Also, importantly, a way to charge their cell-phones by way of their car, a solar panel and/or a USB battery “brick”. Because of fibre delivery of land-line telephony, the instant the power goes out so does the ability to call via landlines.

  1. Please you do not want to go there because this issue is not only about business models but immoral and unethical practices and those practices adding additional burden to the people of Dominica
    The lack of sensitivity should give cause and a concerns of the type of character that would encourage a wrong to be a right all in the name of business models and preferences


  2. Listen up My position on Ross was base on ethics
    Ethics which Ross thought best was not part of their business model
    Plus insensitivity towards the people of Dominica with a take it or lump thrown to the Dominican govt
    An exodus which might not have happened without the fishing expedition of Mia Mottley


  3. Probably the same kind of ethics which kept Big Sinck away from applying for an IMF loan for 1% and going for a CS-FCIB-loan for 10% ???

    How stupid you think we are?


  4. Niw listen to your logic a 10percent loan with no austerity measures you baulked
    However a 1percent loan with austerity measures that would cut the ar ss of ever tom dick mary and other’s you endorse
    Amm are u a madman or what


  5. “Please you do not want to go there because this issue is not only about business models but immoral and unethical practices…….”

    Hmmmmmm

    So, I guess that Ronald Jones in his capacity as Minister of Education, facilitating the entry of the University of Bridgetown into Barbados……….and is subsequently appointed as that university’s Vice Chancellor…….

    ……..can be reasonably viewed as ïmmoral and unethical” as well?


  6. Look u can drag the table !chair or cuckoo stick into the Ross is lssue to whatever level it pleases u
    However it is not beyond your political laced agenda to by pass morals or ethics


  7. “However it is not beyond your political laced agenda to by pass morals or ethics….”

    Hmmmmmmmmm

    I guess your were looking directly into a mirror when you wrote the above comment.


  8. Kinda and i saw your image staring at me
    The story of Ross would be remembered as one of those low life people agendas perpetrated on the people of Dominica by Mottley
