Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has urged citizens to take preparatory measures as Tropical Storm Dorian approaches the island.
The Prime Minister says the country will not be shut down, however, a Tropical Storm Watch remains in effect for Dominica.
The Prime Minister advised that duties will continue despite the watch, and advised persons to exercise caution.
Meantime, Fitzroy Pascal, Disaster Preparedness Coordinator at the Office of Disaster Management, had a few tips for citizens on keeping safe during the storm.
Pascal advised citizens to store drinking water and non- perishable foods. Flashlights and battery operated radios including extra batteries are key in keeping prepared, including a well- stocked first- aid kit. All important documents should be stored in water- proof containers.
Citizens were also advised to know hurricane shelters.
