Eastern Caribbean Public Announcement

Issued by U.S. State Department

Aug 16, 2007

This Public Announcement is being issued to inform U.S. citizens of Hurricane Dean, which is expected to make landfall on the Windward and Leeward Islands of the Caribbean on Friday, August 17.  This Public Announcement expires on August 30, 2007.

As of the morning of August 16, Hurricane Dean was a category 1 storm, with sustained winds of up to 75 miles per hour.  There are hurricane warnings and watches in effect across the region.

The National Hurricane Center predicts that Hurricane Dean will pass south of Puerto Rico and approach the southern regions of the Dominican Republic and Haiti, moving towards Jamaica, the southern coast of Cuba and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.  Providing accurate storm models at this time is difficult, and the trajectory and velocity of the storm can change at any time.

U.S. citizens in affected regions should immediately head to higher ground and/or identify shelter, monitor local media reports, and follow the instructions of local emergency officials.  Visitors should be familiar with their hotel or cruise ship evacuation plans.  U.S. citizens should carry their travel documents (i.e. U.S. passport, birth certificate, picture IDs, etc.) with them at all times or secure them by placing them in a safe, waterproof location.

Additionally, all American citizens in the area are reminded to stay in contact with friends and family in the United States to keep them apprised of their current whereabouts.

Flights into and out of the affected islands may be suspended at any time, and current flights may fill quickly.  Flights into and out of neighboring islands may experience flight delays as a result.  Travelers should contact the airlines for updated information on flight availability.  Access to sea ports may be similarly affected.

For the most up-to-date track of the hurricane and updates, please visit The National Hurricane Centers website at http://www.nhc.noaa.gov.  Citizens living in areas that may be affected may also contact their local civil protection or law enforcement office for updated information about the storm and preparedness measures to take.

Further information on hurricanes and hurricane preparedness is available on the State Department website at: http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/hurricane_season/hurricane_season_2915.html.
