“The premature start to the 2018 Hurricane Season on May 25 when subtropical storm Alberto formed East of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, serves as a stark reminder of last year’s devastating season.

In addition, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration NOAA there is a 35% chance of an above-normal hurricane season this year. All this makes preparation for the 2018 season an even greater priority,” said Garry Sinclair, C&W’s Caribbean President.

Cable & Wireless which operates both Flow and C&W Business Solutions in the region,  has been preparing for the season and encourages everyone to be on alert and ready to take the necessary steps to protect family and property.

Flow has already completed a series of rigorous hurricane drills across its markets and has begun customer awareness campaigns. The company has also invested in new cellular towers built specifically to withstand category 5 wind conditions and has been rolling these out as part of its restoration efforts in the badly affected islands of Dominica, British Virgin Islands and Anguilla.

Additionally, the company has also reinforced its sub-sea network that connects the Americas to the World with increased transmission capacity across fibre links in some markets and put in place even more redundancy options.
