Nevis Island Shores Being Battered By Waves

Charlestown, Nevis
March 20, 2008

Disaster preparedness officials on Nevis issued a warning to the public to avoid the island’s beaches over the Easter weekend. The warning was issued on Thursday March 20, 2008, by Director of the Nevis Disaster Management Office Mr. Lester Blackette, in light of an existing weather condition which had given rise to dangerous heavy seas. 
 
“We are advising persons to stay away from the beach especially persons who normally bathe in the sea. Small craft operators should remain on shore or get safe harbour. The waves are very significant and it is affecting the Samuel Hunkins Drive way and the areas surrounding the TDC parking lot.
