Alert level YELLOW downgraded to BLUE

The National Disaster Council at it’s meeting this afternoon has cancelled the Yellow alert and downgraded to Blue alert from 6pm this evening.

Chief Tim Wilson says that “Although we have gone to blue alert, the sea tracks are still closed. There is still debris on the roads so please take care. The crews have yet to complete assessment of the debris on the roads and clean up”.

The western side of the island will continue to experience high seas with damaging heavy swells and waves are expected to be three metres around coastal areas. Sir Robert’s wharf and all sea tracks remain closed.

The notice says there is damage along coastal areas but expect the swells to ease off in the next couple of days.

The Police would like to thank the public for your cooperation today but be aware that we are still on alert level so remain vigilant.

The National Disaster Council will meet again tomorrow morning at 10am.
