As St Vincent and the Grenadines prepares for the passage of Storm Kirk overnight and into Friday, a decision has been taken to close schools.
The Ministry of Education in a release says all educational institutions across the island will remain closed on Friday 28th September 2018.
No announcement has been made in regards to private and public sector workers.
The center of the system is expected to pass to the north of mainland St. Vincent overnight, positioning to our north-west by early morning.
Residents across SVG, should bear in mind that heavy rainfall and winds are occurring over the eastern portion of Kirk’s circulation.
These winds and rains are likely to spread across SVG and other islands and possibly intensify by early morning.
