Grenada Disaster Agency Monitoring Tobago Oil Spill

The Caribbean Media Corporation is reporting the National Disaster Management Agency in Grenada  continues to  monitor the ongoing oil spill which occurred off the coast of Tobago.

NADMA has held meetings with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency, the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology, the Regional Marine Pollution Emergency, the Information and Training Centre and the Office for Disaster Preparedness and Management  in Trinidad and Tobago.

It said the objective of these engagements was to ascertain the exact location and likely continued trajectory of the oil slick to determine the extent to which it may affect Grenada’s marine areas.

The agency also said an oil spill committee has been activated and will continue to work with regional and hemispheric partners to monitor the situation.

It will continue to provide timely updates to the public as and when more accurate information is available.
