VIDEO: PM Wants Nation to Come Together in Prayer as Hurricane Tammy Draws Nearer

Prime Minister Gaston Browne has called on residents to pray that God would continue to stretch his hands over Antigua and Barbuda and protect its residents as Hurricane Tammy threatens to bring strong winds and rains in the wee hours of the morning

The nation is facing the prospect of severe weather conditions and climatologists say by the time she makes landfall, she could be as strong as a category 2 hurricane

Browne in his address recalled the memories of the ravages of Hurricane Irma in 2017 and the devastation on our sister island of Barbuda, along with the recent passage of Tropical Storm Phillippe still fresh in our collective memories; ‘I encourage everyone to be vigilant and to ensure that the necessary precautions are made to minimize the possible effects of the storm” Browne said

He said with the country now under a hurricane watch, it is, therefore, imperative that as a nation vulnerable to the effects of climate change, that we assume collective responsibility for our safety.

Browne told residents that the country’s ability to withstand the onslaught of this storm as a nation, is directly related to the responsibility taken by each individual
