Mr Caines, said he had chaired a meeting of the Emergency Measures Organisation Executive this week.

He said: “All preparedness activities being under taken by the 60-plus agencies that form the wider EMO, are being coordinated and documented by the Disaster Risk Reduction and Mitigation Team which works out of Ministry headquarters.

“The Bermuda Weather Service reports that the latest hurricane forecast by international agencies have predicted an average season with thirteen named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes.”

The hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30.
