BEFORE THE STORM
Visit the St. Lucia Meteorological Office at http://www.slumet.gov.lc and listen to radio and television broadcasts to stay informed about weather forecast and reports for your area.
Have flashlights, battery-powered radios and extra fresh batteries available in the event of power outages.
Unplug all electrical appliances and equipment in the event of a thunderstorm. Lightning can produces high voltages on electrical networks, which can damage equipment. Turn off as many appliances as possible that require electricity.
