Nods Director on preparedness for Hurricane Irma


Director of the National Office of Disaster Services (NODS) Philmore Mullin is warning residents against possible complacency hours ahead of the possible arrival of Hurricane Irma.

“There are a lot of [comments] on social media that could suggest that we are not going to be impacted in a very major way,” Mullin said.

“The system is in a location that is very uncertain. And so, it could shift left, it could shift right, and it could come straight over us,” he warned.

Many on social media and in the public at large have made suggestions that the Hurricane would not affect Antigua Barbuda because of its ever-changing trajectory.

“These things don’t always follow the path that they are predicted to follow. We are treating it as though we are going to be impacted directly until we get information that would suggest otherwise,” Mullin said.
