Caribbean disaster response organizations are proposing that a Caribbean tsunami warning system be put in place.

This update was provided to Prime Minister Bruce Golding during a meeting with heads of emergency response organizations at Jamaica House today (March 3).

Director General of the Office of Disaster Response and Emergency Management (ODPEM) Ronald Jackson, told the Prime Minister that the nation  would have between seven and ten minutes to prepare for a tsunami resulting from an earthquake in Cuba and 10 to 20 minutes to respond to a tsunami from an earthquake in Haiti. The Central Caribbean is prone to earthquakes.

ODPEM is preparing a situation analysis and response evaluation for Cabinet that will outline how critical agencies will respond to a catastrophic earthquake. ###
