PR – Forecasters at the Met Office at the Maurice Bishop International Airport have issued a dust – hazy advisory for the state of Grenada.
According to the advisory, the conditions are due to a combination of Saharan dust and Volcanic ash from the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the Spanish isle of La Palma (Canary Islands), resulting in reduced visibility across the State.
These conditions are expected to continue over the coming days varying in intensity.
The Ministry of Health therefore advises people with respiratory challenges such as asthma and other allergies to wear a mask, avoid outdoor contact if possible, ensure you have an adequate supply of medication and to be in contact with your medical physician, in the event such intervention is needed.
NaDMA further encourages motorists and Marine users to exercise increased caution due to reduced visibility.
