List of 2018 Hurricane Shelters

Dominica is once again facing the prospect of being hit by a tropical weather system.

On Friday Hurricane Beryl was located east of the Lesser Antilles but is expected to weaken as it approaches the islands.

The Met Office said it will affect Dominica as a Tropical Depression or Tropical Storm between Sunday and Monday.

Below is a list of Hurricane Shelters provided by the Office of Disaster Management.

    Office of Disaster Preparedness, Gov’t have put out a list of shelters, just to have Dominicans think there is some state of preparedness. Far from that

    In several Communities the hurricane shelters have been compromised, broken down and so unfit as a hurricane shelter. The MASSACRE Community DOES NOT HAVE ANY HURRICANE SHELTER. SHAME!!!! SHAME!!!!!!!! The roof of the Massacre church was destroyed, as well as the community CENTER. Since before Maria, there was no SHELTER in MASSACRE. BlackMore, Parl. Rep has had a few meetings in the area, after Maria, but the hurricane shelters were not on his agenda, not PRIORITY. No repairs 9 months after. Magwe Sa.

    Some communities face the same neglect by Skerrit’s DLP Gov.t.

    Instead we hear of $28 MILLION MISTAKE, The DLP Gov’t, through Austrie, admitted to and another $156 MILLION discrepancy. Skerritt, MINISTER OF FINANCE, HAS YET TO REFUTE THOSE FINDINGS BY LINTON. Even in disaster such irresponsible things happen?

    Are they looking into a glass ball? how can they be so sure that this hurricane will weaken by the time it reaches the islands. They are putting out a false sense of security, better safe than sorry, be prepared for a hurricane just in case it does the opposite. Remember Maria went into cat 5 just before hitting Dominica.

    You know what amazes me, creol festival is in october and list of performers and line up already set. Hurricane season started June first it is now July and two days before a storm the list of shelter come out with buildings on there that seems not to be worthy. DNO pleas allow me say bad word. You guys forming the royal a**. Theae place need a serious cleansing.

      DLP Administrations this no time for fake news it’s hurricane season and we cannot take any storm or high wind as well as hurricane as a joke, it’s hurricane season so when the weather people say the be alert and prepare one self take it seriously because like it or not it’s coming our way get ready. Move to higher ground with the necessary things you need to survive for days and let us all hope for the best.

    So the same old health center that was not strong enough for the ppl of Colihaut to go get medical treatment Is now strong enough to shelter a hurricane. COOL 8)

      Say thank God you have some place to go; stop complaining and think of what role you are going to play in the event things worsen.

        Typical slave mentality. Thank God you have a place. It is a legitimate complaint. What is wrong in asking for better. Why would the facility be listed as a hirricane shelter if it is not fit for the purpose it was built. Some of you would get a piece of iron shoved up your …. . and stay there silent because its my party. If all Dominica depend on themselves get rid of ODM, get rid of fire service, get rid of gov. It would save the country expense and embarrassment.

        Perfectly said Shaka! When I read the comments by KID, I thought as you did. These apologists of the ruling regime would embarrass themselves trying to defend the indefensible. In the process, unadulterated gibberish escapes from their mouths. Let’s be supremely honest. It is unreasonable to expect the government to repair and rectify all the damages caused by Maria by this time. In the same vein, the government should be blamed and be given a severe tongue lashing for practically accomplishing nothing for almost one year. Anyone who tries to defend or justify the government’s dereliction of duty and gross incompetence, needs their head examined and then be institutionalized.
