The Office of Disaster Pre-
paredness is assembling to go
on high alert if necessary after
Tropical Storm Don formed in
the Atlantic Basin yesterday.
There is a small chance of trop-
ical-storm-force winds affect-
Late yesterday ODPM's Captain
Neville Wint said he was awaiting
official information from the Me-
teorological Office to determine the
trajectory of the storm before the
ODPM's initiates its disaster plan.
"Just a few minutes ago the Nation-
al Hurricane Centre categorised it as
Tropical Storm Don and we are now
evaluating where it will pass," Wint said
in a telephone interview.
Saying the storm was moving east of
T&T, Wint said the organised system
was being monitored by the National
Hurricane Centre (NHC).
"We are now awaiting the Met Of-
fice's forecast and further information
from the National Hurricane Centre.
Based on its trajectory they will advise
us," Wint said.
An information bulletin issued by
the Met Service at 6.30 pm stated that
the weather system "has shown little
organisation over the last six hours,
however, reconnaissance aircraft inves-
tigating the area has found a small but
well-defined surface circulation and
a small area of tropical-storm-force
winds over the eastern side of the cir-

associated with the storm is expect-
ed to affect T&T from this afternoon.

Bret last month, Wint said it was up
to the citizenry to take the necessary
"We will be able to handle this storm
and I am satisfied that we did all that
was necessary for Bret. The citizenry
has to be prepared and we must all put
arrangements in place to handle this.
Once we get the latest bulletin from
the Meteorological Office we will do
what is necessary to alert the citizenry,"
Forecasters at the National Hur-
ricane Center in Miami said yes-
terday the storm's maximum sus-
tained winds were 40 mph, with
tropical storm-force winds ex-
tending out 25 miles from the core.
The storm was moving west at 17 mph.
On the Met office's website yesterday,
meteorologist Saide Shakeer said the
TTMS will be closely monitoring this
system as it moves across the Tropical
Atlantic Ocean and will issue another
bulletin within 24 hours or earlier if the
Tropical storm warning has been is-
sued for Grenada and storm watch has
been issued for Barbados, St Vincent
and the Grenadines and St Lucia.
