I am afraid NEMO is taking these steps because on mood on Ambergris is panicky. Journey's End and Captain Morgan's had already evacuated on Friday, yesterday I saw several businesses pulling the boards from their docks (way premature), and the Ferry has discontinued scheduled transportation to the North of the Island as of 3 pm today.
Not having had any warnings last year may be contributing to the mood, but I am afraid that some individuals in town are scaring newcomers with made up stories. Stay with the facts and keep your head cool, because panic can be far more dangerous and costly than the storm itself!!
