Pin It

Grand Cayman (GIS) – With the All Clear for Cayman Brac and Little Cayman issued at 7p.m. following the passage of Tropical Storm ETA officials say no structural damage has been reported.

            Some flooding was experienced on both islands and both are still experiencing gusty winds with bands of cloud passing through, and some light rain currently. 

            At 7p.m, Tropical Storm Eta was located 109 miles north-northeast of Grand Cayman 54 miles north-northwest of Cayman Brac, and is expected to over Cuba late tonight.

There were short power outages on both islands but all power has been restored.

Both the Aston Rutty Centre Shelter and the Noah’s Ark Pet Shelter on Cayman Brac have now closed.

Deputy District Commissioner Mark Tibbetts thanked emergency personnel and all residents who adhered to Government warnings and helped to keep the Cayman Brac and Little Cayman communities safe.

Authorities on Cayman Brac and Little Cayman are still asking all persons to remain off the roads as much as possible. This is to facilitate the work of damage assessment, and debris removal where necessary. In those areas of Grand Cayman where debris is still being cleared drivers are asked to exercise extreme caution.

Motorists are also advised to be mindful of road closures that are underway to facilitate clean-up efforts.

            Members of the public are also asked to keep away from the coasts and shoreline as dangerous waves continue to affect the Cayman Islands. A marine warning is still in effect which means that rough seas are likely.
