A curfew was imposed on Curaçao in all haste from 11 a.m. on Wednesday. Pisas explained at a press conference on Wednesday evening that the threat of the tropical storm left the government with no other choice. In the end it remained on Wednesday with slightly more rain than usual. Pisas warned that there could still be a lot of rain and thunderstorms. Nevertheless, the curfew will be lifted at 4 a.m. on Thursday. The code red has been changed to code orange.
According to the government, “a considerable amount of water fell” on Bonaire on Wednesday. They have also been warned that there could be more flooding in the coming days. But according to the government, schools can open again on Thursday.
It also remained relatively quiet on Aruba. However, the government has adhered to the advice to stay at home until at least 6 a.m. on Thursday (‘shelter in place’). After that, all measures have been withdrawn and Aruba can run normally again, according to Prime Minister Evelyn Wever-Croes.
