Prime Minister, Dr Keith Rowley returned home from Barbados this morning after the singing of an energy MOU on Saturday in Bridgetown.

In a statement via his facebook page the Prime Minister returned to his homeland from Barbados before the warning associated with Tropical Storm Dorian; which resulted in the shutdown of all air transportation.

Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley has announced that the country will shut down at 10:00 a.m. instead of the previously announced noon.

She made the announcement this morning citing the strengthening of Tropical Storm Dorian overnight.

At 5:00 a.m Tropical Storm Dorian was centred near 11.9N, 56.3W or about 225 miles (365 km) east-southeast of Barbados. Maximum sustained winds have increased to 60mph (97km/h), with tropical-storm-force winds extending outward up to 45 miles (75km) from the centre.
