As the Cayman Islands remembers Hurricane Ivan’s destruction 19 years ago, the Caymanian Times is pleased to be at the forefront of hurricane preparedness. Each week we will be publishing a map that shows all the hurricane shelters on the islands, a vital resource for people in need of shelter, should a hurricane pass through these islands. Knowing exactly where to take shelter during a storm should be an important part of anyone’s hurricane preparation plan, so we are happy to assist with this useful map telling you exactly where to go to be safe from a storm.
In addition, we are pleased to be reestablishing our popular Cayman Conversations radio, social media and newspaper slot, whereby we get to inform readers and listeners in a little more detail on some of the most important events and programmes taking place in Cayman today. For our first Cayman Conversation in this new season, we speak with Hazard Management Director Danielle Coleman and Teresita DaSilva about the importance of preparing for a hurricane, enabling all our readers and listeners to gain useful knowledge about how to stay safe this hurricane season.
Read our special feature on Hurricane Ivan in today’s paper, where we relive some of the stories and events of those fateful two days in September 2004, an incredibly stressful and worrying period in our recent history. We think it is extremely important to keep these memories alive, because it is only by understanding our past that we can learn lessons for our future.
The Caymanian Times is proud to be Cayman’s top newspaper resource when it comes to hurricane preparedness. We care about you, our readers, and we are happy to do what it takes to share vital information to ensure everyone stays safe this hurricane season.
